There are a lot of essential oils that offer calming effects for emotions. You can relieve sadness, restlessness and nervousness with essential oils. Also there are essential oils that can help with emotional storms that come from monthly periods.
For sadness, worries and restlessness
Frankincense, patchouli and ylang ylang help with calmness during sadness. You can apply the essential oils to your heart or to your feet (dilute the oils to one big table-spoon of coconut oil). You can also massage the oil blend to your shoulders. DoTerra has an oil blend called Console, where you can find those essential oils too. You can also find it as a roller bottle.
Calming the emotional storms caused by hormones
Sage, lavender, bergamot and Roman chamomile can calm the emotional storms caused by hormones. You can mix one drop of each oil (or two if you use only one of these oils) to 1-2 table spoons of coconut oil. Massage the oil blend to your stomach or put the oils to diffuser. DoTerra has also an oil blend called Clary Calm, where you can find all these essential oils. Clary calm also cools your skin from heat. If you are pregnant or nursing consult your doctor.
Greetings from the snow blizzard! I wanted to talk this week about moods and how to help your moods with essential oils. I use them daily for that. Having a good mood is essential for better health. I also made a blog about this two days ago, where I wrote down specific oils for different moods. I also gave out a recipe for better focusing.
One of the challenges in living in today’s world is definitely keeping positive outlook in life and staying happy. Even if we have more money and spare time from work and safer environment than people did decades ago, stress and comparing ourselves to everybody else takes the joy out of our lives. Being in better mood reduces stress and improves health. Even if you don’t own a diffuser, you can inhale essential oils from your skin or from bath water. You can dilute them into your skin and most of doTerra’s oils you can use internally.
Rub two drops of frankincense to the bottoms of your feet (remember to dilute)
Put two drops of doTerra’s Roman chamomile into your tea (if you use some other brand, make sure that you can use their product internally)
Rub two drops of vetiver and lavender into your skin (remember to dilute)
Rub patchouli to your temples or bottoms of your feet (remember to dilute)
Put few drops of Ylang Ylang to your foot bath
For nervousness and restlessness
Rub two drops of rosemary to your wrists diluted or put them into diffuser
Put few drops of lavender to your bath water or into your self-made shower gel
Put doTerra’s Balance oil blend to your neck, wrists or diffuser (remember to dilute for your skin). This is my favourite blend right now for my 2 year old’s mood swings (also helps me).
Put two drops of sandalwood to your neck diluted or diffuse
Put doTerra’s Elevation blend to diffuser
Recipe for people with difficulties to focus:
For a palm of coconut oil
drop of vetiver
drop of lavender
drop of sandalwood
and massage it into your skin. You can also put those oils into your diffuser. DoTerra has an oilblend called Intune for focusing.
