My 10 Essential Essential Oils
Last post we looked at how I use essential oils and what my most used oils are … so now let’s take a look at why I use so much of the oils I do.
What are my most used essential oils & what are they great for?
So now that you know my most used oils, what is my favorite blend to use?
Well it happens to be a blend that my son and I created a number of years ago when I first started working with essential oils called Overwhelmed.
Overwhelmed is perfect in times of stress or when you are literally feeling overwhelmed and in need of a little grounding.
It is soothing and grounding; slows and deepens breath; great for stress, anxiety and nervous tension; wonderful for use in meditation as well.
How do I use this blend?
Roll blend on the palm of your hands, rub you hand together then cup them over your nose and mouth, take 5 deep breaths slowly inhaling and exhaling. This covers all the ways you can benefit from the oils and can quickly bring a sense of calm.
Or ... rolled this blend underneath jaw line and on pulse points behind ears and in the hollow at the base of the neck. The oil will warm on your skin and you will be able to enjoy the smell and experience the benefits for a longer time.
Do you have any essential Essential Oils in your collection?
