RECIPE

Calming Blends

Everyone likes to have some peace and quiet. When you can find a moment or two you want to have that wonderful feeling of calmness and to be calmed from within.

When we think of essential oils that produce calming affects we think of Lavender, but there are many other oils that will provide chemical changes and promoted calming feelings.

Several essential oils can slow brain wave patterns to produce sensations of relaxation. This mode of action is similar to sedative type drugs (only milder and with out any of the bad side effects).

Roman Chamomile, Clary Sage, Helichrysum, Lemon, Mandarin, Marjoram, Neroli, Ylang Ylang , Vetiver, Rose, Spikenard and Frankincense.

Creating a blend using up to 5 of these oils will help you feel calm and peaceful.

Several of these oils can help to produce a spiritual calmness. Vetiver, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Spikenard and Frankincense. Include these, especially if you wish to meditate.
