Lift Off: An Uplifting Essential Oil Blend Recipe
It's not easy staying upbeat and there is no shortage of stress, negativity, or bad news going around these days. While we can't control the external elements, we do have complete control over the internal.
Our personal attitude determines how we look at life, react to challenges, and if we will succeed or fail (so it's very important to stay positive).
To help with that challenge we have created an uplifting essential oil blend that you can use to lift your spirits and energy. Use it in the morning to start the day off on a positive note, or diffuse it throughout the day, you can even carry it around with you to inhale when you need a quick pick me up.
LET'S MEET THE INGREDIENTS
Grapefruit oil has an energizing, stimulating, and uplifting aroma. While jasmine oil (one of the most uplifting oils) has a deeply relaxing effect as well. Geranium oil (the cheerful oil) is both calming and uplifting, making it a natural antidepressant.
- 4 drops of grapefruit essential oil
- 4 drops of jasmine essential oil
- 2 drop of geranium essential oil
- To use in shower/bath mix with 2 tbsp of a shower gel or carrier oil (like almond oil)
- To use in diffuser mix as instructed above
- To use on the go mix as instructed above and add to a DIY Inhaler.
The key to getting the most out of this blend is to not only use it when you need a pick me up but also when you are in a calm and happy mood. The smell can trigger your body to remember that calm and happy state later.
