If you are part of my Essential Oil Academy, you got to experience the Emotional Aromatherapy series. What you maybe didn’t know, is that these are the newer kids on the block when it comes to blends that support the emotions. The OG emotional support blends were Citrus Bliss, which we covered last week, Serenity, Balance, and Elevation. We spent some time covering Serenity in our Essentials for Sleep class, but this week I want to brag on Balance, the Grounding Blend a bit. (And don’t worry, because I’ll be talking about Elevation next week!)
Oh, Balance. This blend has such a special place in my heart. I often struggle to describe it’s lovely scent, but no trouble at all explaining how it makes me feel. When you struggle with anxiousness, a feeling of balance is something you learn to cherish; the ease with which you move through the day. The peaceful, even keel is almost meditative, and that’s such a blessing when you tend toward tension and tightness. Rolled over my heart, on the bottoms of my feet, and the back of my neck, Balance gives me this whole-body sense of calm and tranquility, and being that it’s grounding, I reach for this during meditation sessions when I’m struggling to quiet my mind. This little bottle of good feels contains Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus essential oils in just a touch of Fractionated Coconut Oil to help these perfect plant essences emulsify and merge together. The end result can only be described as divine.
Speaking of Fractionated Coconut Oil, there isn’t enough present to properly dilute the blend, so you will still want to use safe dilution ratios when using this blend on the skin. It’s not so much though that you can’t put this beauty in your diffuser, though. I love to use this one at my desk when I’m working to meet a stressful deadline or in the evening when I’m winding down from a long day and my mind is still racing. As as long as you wipe the inside of your diffuser with a soft cloth once you’re ready to switch over to another oil and are good about running a regular cleaning cycle of water and white vinegar through every couple of weeks, you should be just fine.
The color is the prettiest green thanks to the naturally occurring constituent chamazulene, which makes it such a beautiful oil to add to clear glass rollers. I haven’t had any trouble at all with it staining my skin or clothes, but creature of the night that I am, I don’t wear a lot of light colors, so just keep this information in your back pocket and don’t go rolling it on your brightest whites.
This is another blend that I find isn’t a strain on my pocketbook because of the perks of having a wholesale membership, and when this is one of our BOGO offerings, I stock up because I use this oil multiple times a day, every single day. If you think Balance might be a perfect fit for you, I’m happy to share how I shop smart to get the best deals and get free oils each month. (If you have a wholesale membership to Sam’s Club or Costco, you’re already doing this.) Let me know if I can help you, Love. It would be an honor to help change your life with this blend like it’s changed mine.
Wishing You Total Well-being,
