If you know me… you know I am obsessed with Essential Oils. I use them every day. I have a diffuser pretty much in every room of my house, and one at my desk at work. I have rollon’s everywhere, and my daughter even has them. Some of this may sound foreign to you, but as you follow me on my blog, you will learn how much I love my oils.
I recently discovered how little so many know about them over all. As I grow my cabinet of oils I figured I could share some insight on the oils I buy, how they can be used, what I use them for, and other things they can help with.
Let’s start with my favorite blend of all time – Stress Away. Being a single mom with a very busy schedule life gets stressful. This blend takes the edge off. It’s kinda like my chill pill.
What is its purpose?
This blend is formulated to help relieve everyday stresses and tensions so that you can sleep better at night and live a healthier and happier life.
What is in the blend?
Copal (or Copaiba) is extremely high in β-caryophyllene, which has been well documented for its anti-inflammatory actions. It has traditionally been used for muscle aches and pains, stiffness, and nervous exhaustion. It helps to elevate the mood and lift depression, and may amplify the effects of the other essential oils in the blend.
Lime has a fresh, lively fragrance that is stimulating and refreshing. It helps one overcome exhaustion, depression, and listlessness.
Cedarwood may be calming and may help to eliminate nervous tension.
Ocotea may help with emotional balance.
Lavender is relaxing and promotes health and a general sense of well-being.
Other Ingredients Contained in This Blend: Vanilla.
How does it affect the body?
The oils in this blend may help it to be effective in dealing with problems related to Emotional Balance and Immune System functioning.
How to use:
I love this in a roll-on!! I keep one in my purse and roll it on my writs and behind my ears often.
If you have never used a roll-on before, they are simple.
Order your roll-on’s and make sure you have a carrier oil.
You will put 5-10 drops of the oil into the roll-on, then fill the remainder with the carrier oil. All set!
I also will diffuse this in the evenings to help unwind from the day.
Consult a physician before using this blend if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or suffering from a medical condition. Do not apply to areas of sensitive tissues. Not for children under six years old.
