Grief comes from a loss that causes great sorrow and sadness. The loss most often is associated with that of a loved one, spouse, parent, child or even the family pet, etc.
The loss can also be any thing that causes you to have a deep sadness in what I call 'felt in the gut'. Often times your emotional feelings will transfer to be come a physical pain too.
Loss of a job, loss of a home or memories from childhood, photographs lost in fires or destroyed accidentally, etc. Any of these types of losses may cause a form of grief.
Many essential oils have properties to help you deal emotionally with your grief. To help you relax the tense muscles and calm you while others will help your mind to sort all the many feeling and emotions you are experiencing.
Some essential oils used for grief include Bergamot, Chamomile, Jasmine, Marjoram, Neroli, Rose, Nutmeg, Frankincense, Melissa, Vetiver and Vanilla.
Each of these oils can be used separately or in combinations. Try not to use more than 4-5 oils in a blend. These can be used in diffusers or in a nice relaxing, warm bath.
Giving a small silk arrangement with some of these oils applied to the flowers to someone grieving is a beautiful way to brighten someone's day.
Give them a small bottle of the blend to freshen the scenting so they can continue the healing process. They will start to feel better without knowing the real reason why!!To the Top of the Page

A simple and easy night time ritual involves placing a few drops of essential oils onto a couple of cotton balls and tuck them in both sides of your pillow just underneath the pillow case.
Some folks prefer to add a few drops to their pillow case themselves. Although most essential oils will totally evaporate, some will leave a slight color due to pigmentation in the distilled oils. So dropping directly on a pillow case (especially a white one) would not be encouraged.
Most people will fall asleep and relax more easily with Lavender, Roman chamomile or Clary sage.
