One of the easiest ways to enjoy the benefits of essential oils is through diffusion. We all know that the aroma(s) in our environment can negatively or positively impact our state of mind, and these essential oil blends are designed to have you feeling relaxed in no time!
Our sense of smell is very closely linked to the limbic system of the brain with its primary functions helping in the regulation of emotions, memories, learning, and motivation. This is why a diffuser is a quick and simple way to to practice some self care when dealing with the negative effects of stress (even better if you can combine it with a relaxing bath or massage!).
Recipes (Considered safe to use around kids)
3 drops lavender essential oil
3 drops sweet orange essential oil
1 drop Roman chamomile essential oil
2 drops of grapefruit essential oil
2 drops mandarin essential oil
2 drops lime essential oil
