JACKSONVILLE, FL – Veterans and their family members were given the opportunity to explore the benefits of essential oils during a recent Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) program. Participants were able to make their own creations using a variety of ingredients.
Essential oils can be used for numerous purposes, from detoxifying the air and all-purpose cleaning to reducing stress and anxiety. Each participant made their own custom room spray and sugar scrub. They also learned about different essential oils, their popular uses, and the positive effects they can have on injured veterans.
“This particular event caught my attention because I’m quite fond of oils, especially since my two children suffer from seasonal eczema,” said Army veteran and Army spouse Ingrid Mateo. “Making the scrub and room spray from scratch was a really neat and fun learning experience.”
“I noticed something very interesting during this gathering,” she continued. “In spite of the fact that it was mostly spouses, we all wanted to create scrubs and room spray scents that would be accommodating to our veterans at home. It just further proved that even when we are doing something for ourselves, we are still a team – one with our warriors.”
During program event activities, WWP staff closely interact with attendees and advise them of additional services that can assist their recovery. Generous donors make it possible for wounded veterans to participate in a variety of activities that empower them to take control of their lives, and these programs and services are offered free of charge, for a lifetime.
WWP is a national, nonpartisan organization headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. To get involved and learn more, visit woundedwarriorproject.org.
