Ingredients: Ravintsara, Rosemary, Pine, and Lime
This is a great blend for aromatherapy if you’re feeling congested and it’s one I use almost every morning in the shower. I like dropping some onto a small hand towel and allowing it to mix with the steam from the water and really opening up my air ways. If I’m feeling particularly congested, I’ll mix a few drops of it with a carrier oil and rub some of it on my chest to help with breaking up mucus!
Ingredients: Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Orange, Oregano, Mandarin, Thyme, Rosemary, Nutmeg, Ginger Root, & Eucalyptus citriodora
Yup, this is a spicy one! Containing lots of “hot” oils, the scent really reminds me of holiday baking and so, if nothing else, I simply love diffusing it around the house. I’ve found it really helps wake my mind back up- especially if I’ve been feeling down or in a bit of a haze but it can also be helpful in supporting the immune system and loosening mucus.
Ingredients: Frankincense, Peppermint, Spearmint, Cinnamon Leaf, Lime, Ginger Root, & Lavender in Fractionated Coconut Oil
While this does contain some spicy oils, it also has several calming oils, like frankincense and lavender and gives off a slightly minty scent. It’s the most relaxing of the three oils and often helps to calm down and put my mind at ease a bit.
