I had a great day creating some wonderful blends that were quite helpful. I have bursitis. And for the past few days, it has been causing me quite a bit of pain. I decided that I was going to create a blend that would reduce the inflammation and relieve the pain. And it worked!! I was so happy. This is the blend that I put together:
- Lavender (Pain reducer)
- Geranium (Anti-inflammatory)
- Copaiba (Pain reduce and anti-inflammatory)
I used 2 drops of each in a roller ball. I then added Almond Oil and Grape Seed Oil. I then just rolled the oil onto the are that was inflamed and hurting. Rubbed it in. I did this 3 times spread out during the day. Next day… no problems. Yeah!
I also created a blend for a friend who suffers from depression. I call it the Peace blend. Because it will bring peace to this person and her family.
This blend consists of:
- Frankincense 8 drops (Sedative inducing a feeling of mental peace, relaxation. Lowers anxiety, anger and stress.)
- Lemon 16 drops (Calming. Helps remove fatigue, exhaustion, anxiety and nervousness.
- Geranium 8 drops (Balances hormones, relieves stress and depression.
I put 6 drops of this blend into a roller ball with Almond Oil. They can then roll this onto their pulse point (behind ears and wrists). The scent should uplift their mood and calm them. I did not user Lavender as this person does not like the smell of it.
I also put 6 drops into a personal mister bottle for her to mist around her house, pillow, car, even on herself when she feels she needs it. Next time, I will add a dispersant to the oils before adding them to the water mister. This will help the oils mix with the water better. For a spay/mister I would probably use a type of alcohol since it evaporates quickly leaving only the essential oil behind.
