Essential Oil Spotlight: Balance

     Hey There, Well Beings!

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.

This little bottle and I have been through some tough times together and it’s always had my back. <3

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.

Citrus Bliss and Balance is one of my all time favorite combos for emotional support.

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.

Essential Oil Spotlight: Citrus Bliss

     Hi There, Well-Beings!

This week, I wanted to focus on an oil blend that has served me very well over the past year and is a VIP in my emotional support lineup. It smells like liquid sunshine, so I often wear it in my aromatherapy locket and use it in my perfume blends. I have yet to find someone who isn’t enchanted by this sweet, fun-loving, delightful little oil, so I’m pleased as punch to share it with you in this Essential Oil Spotlight.

Citrus Bliss, also known as the Invigorating Blend, is a sunny, sumptuous blend of Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, and Clementine essential oils, with the sweetest touch of Vanilla Bean Absolute. It is refreshing, purifies and cleanses the air, and reduces stress and uplifts the mood all at once. You can add Citrus Bliss to a spray bottle of water and use it to clean surfaces, add to wool dryer balls to freshen laundry, and diffuse, or dilute and roll on the wrists as a mood boosting personal perfume.

Absolute sunshine. I dare you not to love this blend.

I love lavender, but I find that as an extra-sensitive HSP and an Empath, lavender isn’t a great oil for me in the evening hours. In fact, it kinda makes my mind race. What’s been interesting over this past year has been discovering the special plant magic of certain oils. Chemically speaking citrus oils contain both calming and energizing constituents, and like I said like magic, you get what you need in the moment. Citrus Bliss is an oil I know I can always reach for, day or night. It keeps me cheery and refreshed when the sun is up and calms me down and keeps me happy while I drift off to sleep. Pretty nifty, huh?

So, there’s something important to know about citrus oils, and that’s that most of them are considered photosensitive. In a future post I’ll be going into more detail about exactly what photosensitivity is, but the Cliff’s Notes here are that you want to avoid putting these oils directly onto skin that will be exposed to the sun or UV light or any kind. Photosensitive oils can speed up the effects of the sun’s rays, which can put you in a potentially dangerous situation, and is why I love to wear Citrus Bliss on aromatherapy jewelry instead. It’s safer and more stylish. What’s not to love?

Don’t have diffuser jewelry? You can make your own with lava beads. I get mine at Michaels.

Citrus Bliss is one of my favorite blends to give to the special people in my life who aren’t quite sure about essential oils, because it’s so versatile and is such a home run for both men and women. It’s one of the more reasonably priced oils when you have a wholesale account too, so I go through quite a bit of this stuff and it isn’t hard on my budget when it’s time to reorder. My secret weapon personal fragrance is a mix of Whisper, the women’s blend, with a touch of Citrus Bliss for extra sweetness. It gets a lot of compliments, and my boyfriend enjoys it because it isn’t “perfumey”.

My parting gift to you this week is my all time favorite diffuser blend for warm, sunny days (or maybe just days you wish were warm and sunny). This blend is ready to add ambiance to your next get-together or just to spread joy in whatever room you’re in. It’ll give you those beachy vibes whenever you want them. I call it Sun & Surf, so feel free to put on some Beach Boys or Dick Dale to complete the mood, or put on your favorite Frankie & Annette movie. (Mine’s Beach Blanket Bingo!)

Sunscreen and frozen beverage optional.

Could you use a little Citrus Bliss in your life? Comment below! I’m always happy to share my best tips with you for using oils on a budget, and will give you the scoop on how I get free oils every month. (It’s no scarier than using your Costco or Sam’s Club card and smells a whole lot sweeter!)

The Tejomaya Wellness: Essential Oil Academy Starts Monday

     Hey There, Well Beings!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared anything on this page, but it’s for a really exciting reason, I promise! My Essential Oil Academy, a dream a very long time coming, starts on Monday! I’ve been busy prepping videos and materials for what has been my biggest, scariest goal of the past few years. There’s something about the energy of 2018 that made my decide to face the fear and just do it anyway, so read on for all of the juicy details!

Those of you who have spent any time talking to me know that I am super passionate about essential oils and I have probably had conversations with you about the health benefits and uses of them over the past several years.

Many of you may already have oils in your home and some may be curious if they would be a good fit for your lifestyle.

In order to better serve you, I have created an exclusive Facebook group where I will be teaching about the practical and daily uses of doTERRA’s essential oils and supplements to support a variety of different health/wellness concerns.

The cool thing about the group is you can absorb the education at your own pace so there is no obligation to login or watch videos live. There will also be giveaway opportunities for members of the group to win oils, accessories, and more!

My group is geared towards breaking down essential oil use in a way that is simple, easy and applicable to your daily routine!

This time of year, many people start thinking about bettering their health, and creating habits that support their physical and emotional well-being in the year ahead.

If you are interested in learning additional tips for using your oils or are brand new and excited to learn and start using oils, I would love to have you join!

The group starts Monday! Comment below if you would like to be added and I’ll get you all set up!
