Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Aromatherapy Blend.
So sorry I missed a week…life got a bit out of hand! Too too busy and this blog post was one of the things that I had to let go of last week. I’m so happy to be here again though with another blend for you to inhale and enjoy.
This is a custom blend I created for a client recently. It is for rest and calm. It is grounding, balancing, soothing and sedating. Slows a busy mind, encourages a restful sleep and allows you to relax fully.
Use it in your oil burner to create a calm atmosphere, pop a drop or two on a tissue under your pillow at night or in your bag to inhale during the day. Also great in a bath to wash away the stress of the day.
Sandalwood – Is centring, grounding and harmonising. It heals the soul, promotes tranquillity and is great for meditation. It also helps create openness and understanding, promotes love and hope and is excellent for loneliness and overcoming isolation. It gives a feeling of stability and togetherness, providing comfort and healing in times of stress, depression and confusion. It helps insomnia sufferers and is perfect for anyone leading a hectic daily life ~ and who isn’t these days?! It is also good for treating lingering past trauma issues.
