Feeling frazzled and anxious?

Here is a calming, grounding and restorative essential oil blend

With everyone feeling frazzled with some level of anxiety and stress I thought I wanted to share a bit of essential oil love with you.

I sometimes forget the potency of these little bottles of flower power and plant magick. The distillation of plants, flowers and trees creates what we refer to as essential oils.

So the other day when I felt a bit frazzled, anxious and stressed I was looking at my oils… The ones that spoke to me were:

Cypress: I love cypress. Most tree oils are grounding. Think of the trees: they root deeply into the Earth, expanding down as they grow upwards and outwards. I feel most tree oils offer the energy of wisdom and stability. The sensation of hugging a tree (yes, I’m a tree hugger).

Cypress has quite a refreshing clean aroma. 

According to Battaglia Cypress strengthens an overburdened nervous system and restores calm. Who doesn’t need that?

Aside from that, it is also said to regulate the menstrual cycle, being a tonic and antispasmodic.

Orange: this cheerful fruit is often used in blends for children (sometimes mandarin is preferred). The aroma and the properties are like the fruit: sweet, juicy, joyful, refreshing and familiar. 

Properties include antidepressant, antispasmodic, digestive and a tonic. It seems soothing, calming and comforting – yet zesty.

Ylang Ylang: This very fragrant floral scent is most often thought of as an aphrodisiac. It’s confident, powerful and seductive. I makes us feel warm and comfortable.

It useful for calming down and slowing down the breath – and therefore any anxiety and tension. 

Combinations and blends

I love the combination of the warm, sweet, juicy aromas of orange and ylang ylang and with a bit of refreshing tree oil such as cypress it helps to balance the blend. 

Add a few drops to your infuser. Or blend it with a bath oil/foam or perhaps use as a massage oil. 

I’m getting my essential oils from here.

With Valentine’s Day coming up you may want to massage your loved one – or yourself with this oils full of confidence, sensuality, comfort and joy.
