Why use Essential Oils? When you want stress relief for any moment.
You can study at your own pace and learn a wide variety of recipes that ease acute and chronic pain for yourself, your friends, and family.
In this video I’m making a stock blend of essential oils for stress relief. Making a stock blend simply means I’m making more than I need, so I’ll have more “in stock” if I want to use the blend again.
And I love this blend, so I’ll definitely be using it a lot! It’s good for inhalation (in a diffuser), or you can add it to a carrier oil and apply it topically.
I’m blending these essential oils for stress relief in a little 5 ml glass orifice reducer bottle.
I’m measuring my oils by ml in a graduated cylinder. You can find one like mine here:
Or you can calculate 25 drops per 1 ml.
The recipe is:
2 ml Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) (1:15)
2 ml Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) (1:42)
1 ml Black Spruce (Picea mariana) (2:13)
The orifice reducer isn’t in the bottle yet—it lives in the cap until I screw it on for the first time, when it snaps into place in the top of the bottle. You can see that at 2:58.
If you’re using this in a diffuser, use about 10 to 15 drops. I have two different diffusers with me. One is called the Spa Diffuser (3:23), and it’s very lightweight and convenient. The other is the “Yun” made by Puzhen (3:38), and this one is my very favorite diffuser! It looks so beautiful, and even has lights and music that you can turn on and off. You can find it here:
To use the blend topically, you can add 10 to 15 drops to 1 oz. (30 ml) of your favorite carrier oil. I’m using baobab in the video. It feels so good on skin, and has a rich nutty smell. I saw a baobab tree when I was in South Africa. They can live for thousands of years, and grow to be absolutely gigantic!
Apply your blend to the back of your neck, your shoulders, or anywhere you feel tense.
