Peace of Mind Essential Oil Blend

Jojoba makes an excellent carrier for essential oils, we won't got into the nitty gritty of why in this post, find out more on our post dedicated to this topic. We decided to do a Mix of the Month, essential oil mixes to make and use.

We all suffer from anxiety here and there, some of us more than others. The power of botanicals can be highly beneficial for dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression. Of course we recommend seeing your physician if you are dealing with severe symptoms.

While doing research on which essential oils were best for symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress, Bergamot came out as the frontrunner. Bergamot has a calming effect, in fact in some studies it showed itself to be as powerful as pharmaceuticals for reducing symptoms of anxiety and depresson. Bergamot has a wonderful scent, in fact it's one of my favorite essential oils. It is reported to increase hormone secretions, which is the main reason it is beneficial for boosting mood and helping create a positive mental state. Bergamot is also a natural analgesic, which means it helps reduce the feelings of pain, particularly nerve pain. Definitely something to keep in mind when developing our sore muscle mix. Clary sage is also popular for its uplifting and mood boosting properties. It is a beneficial oil to use before bedtime to aid in relaxation. It has a spicy/herbal scent, which can be quite strong for some people. When applying this mix, clary sage notes will come out first and then fade leaving the long-lasting bergamot scent. Lavender is perhaps one of the most widely known and used essential oils, its relaxing benefits have been proven over and over again. There are many mainstream products that use lavender in their calming products. We included this wonderful oil in this mix, but if you aren't a fan of lavender, feel free to substitute frankincense if you have it on hand.

anxiety and depression essential oil recipe

PEACE OF MIND ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND
1 glass roller bottle (.3 oz size)
10 drops essential oil of bergamot
4 drops essential oil of clary sage
4 drops essential oil of lavender
100% pure jojoba
(feel free to substitute frankincense for clary sage if you don't have that in your essential oil kit)

Place drops of essential oil in roller bottles, top off with jojoba, shake gently. For use, roll on palm, rub palms together, inhale mix, then rub on forehead, temples, behind ears, and on back of neck. Follow by cupping hands and placing them over nose, take a few moment to breathe in the benefits. Hopefully your stress and anxiety will start to diminish quickly.

Also note that essential oils of the citrus family, which includes bergamot, can make some individuals photosensitive, so it's best to not use this topically before spending a day in the sun. Always test essential oil mixes on a small spot of skin, if reaction occurs reduce amount of essential oils in mix by half or a quarter.

There are a few precautions with any essential oils: Never use undiluted, in eyes or around mucus membranes. Do not ingest. Do not use for a prolonged period of time. Keep away from children and do not use essential oil on children or pets unless directed by a professional (cats in particular are very sensitive to essential oils, never use on cats). Avoid while pregnant and with homeopathics. May cause skin irritation (test on a small patch of skin in an insensitive portion of your body with proper dilution rate).

Anxiety is a tough battle to face day in and day out, which makes having a natural solution, such as an essential oil blend, important. Essential oils, known as nature’s living energy, are the natural, aromatic volatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. The distinctive components in essential oils defend plants against insects, environmental conditions, and disease.

The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.

I’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.

I also feel good that by using your product I'm doing everything I can to protect the new mother and delicate new life in my care - no chemicals, preservatives, or pesticides here, thank you very much.

Sara Garvin, LMT

I like doing business with companies that care, and I feel that you do.

Thank you for a fabulous product and great customer care!!

I just wanted to email to say that I'm so in love with Jojoba.

Aly Willard

I bought your product... and my husband thought it was just another product I had to have - now he uses it all the time and reminded me when we're running low. So we both think it's great. Thanks.

The glide is perfect and I have yet to find another product that can rival its positive effects on the skin. And as a therapist who does mostly medical work, it is a wonderful thing to have found a product that none of my clients are allergic to.

Jessica Collishaw

I ordered one gallon of jojoba online yesterday afternoon and I received it this morning at 9:30!!!!!
Thank you so much for your prompt service.

Sarah Litchfield, LMT

My clients love Jojoba; it washes out of sheets and clothing easily, and it makes my work easier. The absence of fragrance is especially nice. I highly recommend it!

Deb Hewson

Your product is amazing and I couldn't be happier with it. It is high quality which is what I strive for in my own practice.
