Essential Oils for the New Year
As the winter Holidays wind down and give way to the New Year, it’s time once again to take stock.
This is the time of year that I feel encouraged to look at what I need to change about my lifestyle to create contentment in my life. I look at what makes me unhappy and I look for things in my life that I can change if I need to.
Aromatherapy can help in this time of discernment and meditation. There are many essential oils that encourage renewal and reflection. Here are a few simple recipes to start with:
For Focus and Concentration: 2 drops Basil, 2 drops Rosemary and 1 drops Pine Needle OR 2 drops Peppermint, 2 drops Bergamot, 1 drop Frankincense
For Calm and Equanimity: 2 drops Bergamot, 2 drops Lemon, 1 drop Neroli
For Meditation: 4 drops Ylang Ylang, 4 drops Lavender, 2 drops Frankincense and 2 drops Orange.
If you would like to create your own recipe, some oils that are great for energizing and awakening the mind are: Angelica, Basil, Bergamot, Benzoin, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Fir, Frankincense, Ginger, Lemon, Myrrh, Neroli, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage and Sandalwood.
Dreaming Earth has quite a few blends for discernment and renewal if you don’t feel like you want to blend your own: Alert, Clarity, Citrus, Renewal, Finding Joy, Inspiration, Peace of Mind, Spirit, Success and Uplifting/Energizing. Also our Chakra Blends, especially 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 7th, are perfect for this purpose.
I hope everyone has a Wonderful New Year full of blessings and fulfilled wishes and dreams!
