Why use Essential Oils? When you need a moment to catch your breath and relieve stress.
This is an essential oil roll-on blend that’s so helpful when you’re on the edge of getting sick.
I like to use it when I’m going through transition, or when there’s a lot going on at work and I want to support my health. I reach for it the moment I start feeling a little congestion or the tickle of a sore throat.
The carrier for this blend is baobab oil, which is so nourishing and relaxing. It comes from the baobab tree, which can live for thousands of years. I saw a 2,000 year old tree in South Africa (see pictures at 1:13!), and just being near it was so relaxing and inspiring. I wanted to bring that sense of nourishment to this blend.
I’m using a 1 oz. (30 ml) roll on bottle for this blend. Pour 1 oz. (30 ml) baobab oil into the bottle (1:35), and then add your essential oils:
5 drops Cardamom (Ellettaria cardamomum) (2:24)
5 drops Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) (3:15)
5 drops Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) (3:37)
3 drops Elemi (Canarium luzonicum) (4:02)
