Tonight I'm diffusing doTerra's Balance and Serenity together. I need to de-stress this weekend. It was my first week back full time at work and Friday was extremely stressful.
Yes, I use this brand of diffuser. Easy, light, and effective.
Balance and Serenity is exactly what the stressed out person needs. Why?
Fractionated coconut oil
Spruce is a woodsy smell that will keep you grounded and relaxed. Rosewood calms nerves and increases mental focus. Frankincense relives anxiety and has antidepressant properties (I will definitely be getting Frankincense by itself right off. lol). Blue Tansy helps with agitation, anxiety, frustration, depression, and irritability. Wow!
This is mixed with fractionated coconut oil to help balance and mix the oils. You can use Balance for diffusing and / or using on the skin. I have done both. I try to rub Balance on my feet every morning and when I get home if I need something, I will diffuse it.
Honestly, this alone has not helped me. I guess I'm a basket case. That is why I finally bought Serenity. It sounded more like what I needed. Together, I think it has helped a lot. Because, I do need grounding.
Serenity is a Calming Blend. You know, keep calm and carry on..... Yeah right! As soon as I got this in the mail, I opened it up and smelled it. I knew it was for me. In fact, I just now opened it up to smell it again as I'm writing this. lol
Lavender, of course everyone knows the calming properties of this, right? It helps with anger, anxiety, depression, irritability, and frustration. Sweet Marjoram helps with agitation, anxiety, emotional exhaustion, frustration, mood swings, and stress. (I now realize I need to bring this to work). Roman Chamomile you just need to go get a bottle of this alone. It helps with everything stress and depression related. Agitation, anger, anxiety, depression, fear, stress, and mood swings. Ylang Ylang helps with mood swings, anger, depression and forgiveness. Sandlewood helps with agitation and mania. lol. Maybe I'm manic. I do go from one extreme to the other. Vanilla Bean. Awh, vanilla, who doesn't love the smell of that.
I have just diffused the Serenity so far. I haven't had the time to put it in a roller bottle yet. (I better do this before Monday morning). I just love the smell. Putting it with the balance smells wonderful.
Essential oils are natural ways to treat ourselves. We don't always need a pill prescribed to us. Also, you will find that one essential oil is good for so many different things. They have a lot of uses. For example, lavender can be used for burns and eczema. Frankincense is good in beauty products. Also, you can put them in homemade cleaning products. That's how I started. Not the above mentioned though.
Balance and Serenity are offered through doTerra. You can visit them HERE.
I have no idea how much of each EO to use to make my own blend and some of them are very expensive and hard to get. That is why I just purchased the blends through doTerra.
