If you are like me and having a hard time focusing this week, this is the aromatic blend for you! I especially had a hard time getting started today, so I wanted a true therapeutic recipe to offer support my needs. I needed to refocus myself and my energy.
First, I went outside a bit with my bulldogs. When I came back into the house, I opened all the windows and started the diffusers in my bedroom and office.
Guess what??!! It's working
I chose essential oils that were uplifting yet soothing, motivating, and sparkly. I really just looked at my collection and picked 3 oils that were calling to me and I knew were qualified to improve my mood.
Rosemary ct Camphor (Rosmarinus Officinalis) - this essential oil uplifts and strengthens the mind, encourages clarity, and energizes your spirit.
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) - diffuse bergamot to release repressed emotion and reduce anxiety.
Distilled Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) - lime is emotionally uplifting and also supports the immune system.
Rosemary ct Camphor (Rosmarinus Officinalis) 40%
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) 30%
Distilled Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) 30%
For this diffuser blend, I added 7 drops to my 200mL diffusers. This is just a guideline, feel free to adjust to an aroma that resonates with you and your senses
- 3 drops Rosemary EO
- 2 drops Bergamot EO
- 2 drops Distilled Lime EO
Normally I don't run my personal diffuser blends through Lab Aroma for my at-home diffusing but I wanted to pay attention to the chemistry in this particular blend because I am really resonating with it. It is refreshing the air and my spirit. I think it will help many others who need a midday refresh.
This diffuser blend is a winner! I was able to refocus, get busy (I even wrote this unplanned blog!), catch up on tasks, and even my husband noticed my mood improved!
By having the chemical breakdown on file I am able to recreate this blend with other essential oils in case a client has an allergy to the oils, there is a conflict with medication or they just do not like the aroma of a particular oil I used in the blend.As you can see this blend is extremely rich in monoterpenes. Monoterpenes aka Terps may be one of the most known, loved, and studied plant constituents. Here are some reasons Monoterpenes are so popular:
- Most monoterpene-rich oils are anti-inflammatory and have an antiseptic effect
- Many have an antibacterial effect
- Highly lipophilic and penetrate the tissues of the body easily
- Some monoterpene-rich oils are rubefacients
- Many provide an analgesic effect where muscle pain and stiffness are present
All citrus oils are rich in d-limonene which helps activate white blood cells and supports immunity. D-limonene is known as a happiness chemical and can boost your mood too!
