We, especially women, definitely know that our emotional health is often linked to our physical health. Being proactive to keep our minds and bodies as healthy as possible is the key to keeping a well balanced emotional life too. Essential oils are a great way to help keep it all level. Let’s talk about several oils blends and how many people like to use them. Let’s get started.
1. Stress Away
I don’t think a blend’s name could be more telling! It’s obvious that this Young Living blend was created to help you drive away feelings of uneasiness, anger, fear, and being overwhelmed. It’s a great oil to carry with you through the day, to wear in a diffuser necklace, or to diffuse in the office. This sweet-smelling blend is made up of lime, copaiba, vanilla, ocotea, cedarwood, and lavender. Stress Away is also food grade. Many enjoy adding it to their water or milk or using it in a capsule. What a great way to ward off difficult emotions on hectic days.
Need a moment of relaxation, calm, and grounding? This is the perfect oil to create a peaceful atmosphere as it diffuses during stressful homework times with the kids, during difficult days, or before bedtime as a way to wipe away the worries of the day. Young Living also suggests rubbing on the bottom of your feet to alleviate nervous energy.
Joy is a well-loved essential oil blend by Young Living. Comprised of rose, geranium, bergamot, ylang ylang, mandarin, lemon, jasmine, palmarosa, roman chamomile, and rosewood, this flowerly blend is a great addition to a stash of “happy” oils. It’s name is pretty self explanatory, as it helps uplifts the spirits of those who wear it. Many women love to dab some on their wrists to wear as perfume. Others use it in a roller with other oils or diffuse it when feeling uneasy. This oil blend promotes a peaceful attitude and eases nervous energy.
4. Peace and Calming
Tangerine, ylang ylang blue tansy, orange and patchouli are beautifully combined in this mix perfect to add to your personal HAPPY BLEND. The sedating and calming effects of tangerine and ylang ylang combine with the uplifting effects of orange and patchouli. This blend is great for helping you stay calm under pressure, to remain balanced and stable in the midst of chaos, and find peace when times are hard. Peace and Calming is also a perfect oil to add to a night time routine to help support a relaxing night’s sleep. What a great blend for both adults and children.
Orange is a great, versatile oil to add to our emotion-balancing stash. This fragrant oil is great when diffused to help with occasional blues and irritability. Using it aromatically is a great way to uplift moods. In addition, many people use orange internally. Add to a tea or drink in your water to encourage relaxation. Or use it topically in a sleep cream or salt bath before bed. Orange makes a great addition to a relaxed life.
6. Valor II
Valor is a VERY popular Young Living blend. It is a brand new blend specially formulated by Young Living’s founder Gary Young. It includes Young Living’s exclusive Northern Lights Black Spruce and Idaho Blue Spruce essential oils, along with Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia, German Chamomile, and other oils. Diffuse Valor II for an inspiring and calming aroma or apply topically to experience this empowering and uplifting fragrance. Valor II includes the naturally occurring constituents linalol, alpha-pinene, camphene, and limonene. Valor II is the right choice when you are feeling unsure or worn down. Many people wear it before a workout or a challenging moment of the day.
Release™ combines uplifting, calming oils that stimulate a sense of peace and emotional well-being, which in turn facilitate the ability to release anger and frustration. Repressed negative emotions lie at the root of many health concerns. Release promotes harmony and balance in the mind and body. It’s made up of ylang ylang, geranium, royal hawaiian sandalwood, grapefruit, tangerine, spearmint, lemon, blue cypress, davana, kaffir lime, ocotea, jasmine, matricaria, blue tansy, and rose. People like to diffuse Release or rub in on the back of their neck. Adding it to a bath is also a great way to experience the effects of this emotionally-balancing blend.
