Beautiful, sensual, and evocative, essential oils have a stunning range of health benefits, and their natural scents help us connect to our bodies, our breath, and our senses.
There are many ways to work essential oils into your summer routine. Use them to cool off your body, help you calm down before long periods of travel, and soothe your skin after too much time in the sun, pool, or salty air. Essential oils can also help you let go of all the stress that has built up in your body so you can better enjoy a restorative vacation or getaway.
Inhaling an essential oil is the fastest and most effective way to experience its many therapeutic rewards. Another way to deliver essential oils to your lungs is with a diffuser, which disperses oil throughout an enclosed space, making the air inside and outside of our bodies more breathable.
Applying essential oils to the skin is another way to create a significant internal effect within our bodies.
You have now been introduced to my top three favorite essential oils – lavender, lemon and peppermint. One of my favorite summer EOs to use to help bring a sense of tranquility while bringing harmony to the mind and body, and balance to the emotions is doTERRA’s Grounding Blend, Balance. I put on Balance blend daily with a carrier oil to help center me through the ups and downs when I am juggling activities with the kids, teaching classes, visiting friends and family and trying to keep up with household chores. It is also a wonderful blend to diffuse when you are practicing yoga and want to be grounded for your meditation practice.
