In today's world, having some peace and feeling calm can be a rare occurrence. I have found essential oils to assist me in achieving that goal. One of my favorite to use is a blend called, you guessed it! Peace & Calming. It smells heavenly! Tangerine, Orange, Ylang-Ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy make up this blend of wonderfully calming oils. I use it several times a week! Here are my favorite uses for this blend:
10 Uses for Peace & Calming Essential Oil Blend:
1.) I love to combine this with a light carrier oil, like Grapeseed, to apply to skin that needs some soothing and calming. It helps almost immediately to make my irritated skin feel better!
2.) We diffuse this one fairly often at night to encourage sleep. Or apply to the bottoms of feet and down the spine.
3.) It can also be diffused to help calm during extreme emotions. (I have a son with some special needs and challenges, emotional balance and control can be a major issue when he's upset, this blend calms him right down!)
4.) This is a great scent for dryer balls when drying your sheets or towels! Wait until the cycle is almost done, put a few drops on each dryer ball then throw back in to finish up!
5.) Diffuse, or place a drop on your chest when comforting a fussy babe; Calms them right down! Also works to help encourage NAPS!!!
6.) Speaking of babies, this one works for their tender skin too! I didn't have this when my last child was in diapers, but it's gentle nature sure would have come in handy during some diaper changes! (*Don't apply to broken skin). Just combine with a carrier oil then apply. While my kids are out of diapers, they occasionally need some skin support because they.. um.. get in a hurry after using the bathroom, so this comes in handy!
7.) I wish I'd had this one when I had toddlers! They can be a whirlwind of emotions! This would have been with me on every outing, grocery trip or long car ride! I still use it with my younger children though, it makes car rides and outings a lot more pleasant for everyone especially when patience is thin and everyone is over tired from a long day.
8.) Got pets? Do they hate storms? Apply a little bit of this on their collar and behind the ears to help them stay calm. (works for adults too!)
9.) Add to 1/2 cup to 1 cup of Epsom salts for a very relaxing night time bath.
10.) Diffuse at night to help prevent teeth grinding.
Those are the main ways we use them in our home. Tell me how you us Peace & Calming if you have it!
