Liquid X – A Calming Essential Oil Blend

Have you ever taken your kids to the grocery store and just felt so overwhelmed? On Monday morning, do you sit at your desk with a mile long to-do list, yet you don’t know where to start? Let’s face it, we all have a lot going on. We know what needs to get done but don’t know to slow our brain down and actually get started on the track to success. For moments like these, or really every morning, I’ve been using this blend to keep my head in the right place and get shit done.

  • 45 drops Lavender
  • 35 drops Valor
  • 30 drops Stress Away
  • 15 drops Patchouli
  • 15 drops Vetiver

Use a 10ml roller bottle and top off with carrier oil of choice. Apply to temples in moments of stress and notice immediate relief! I’ve made this for my best friend, my mother in law, and even my boss…all with raging reviews. We all love it.

Here’s why it works:

Lavender – made from the flower itself, this is a very versatile oil. It smells fresh, floral, clean and calm. In this recipe, it is used for it’s relaxing properties.

Valor – this is actually a blend of oils (Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, and Frankincense) with a woodsy smell. It is used to help unwind and promote a positive attitude. Buyer beware: it’s hard to keep in stock, so it’s limited to two per customer per month.

Stress Away – another oil blend (Lime, Vanilla, Copaiba, Lavender, Cedarwood, and Ocotea) with an exotic, citrusy scent. Used just as the name says, to relax.

Patchouli – part of the mint family, this oil is extracted from a shrub in Asia. However, the scent is more musky. It is used by “free spirits,” especially during yoga or meditation because it creates a calming, relaxing environment.

Vetiver – made from a tropical grass in Asia, this oil has an earthy, exotic aroma. It is great to use in the workplace because it helps create an uplifting environment. This is a very thick oil, so I warm in up in my hands before using, otherwise it won’t come out of the bottle.

Make a roller or two and share what stressful moments this helped you out of!
