This morning I gave myself the gift of doing nothing. The gift of living moment-by-moment, watching the snow gently fall, noticing the twisted limbs of a neighbor's hulking tree. Taking time to inhale each note of a diffuser blend, and noticing the synergy is something new altogether. The gift of getting cozy only to do nothing.
This is the second blend for the friend who is going through a big change, who wanted help feeling grounded and motivated, help with feelings of anxiety and depression, and also sleep support. Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) FCF variety, from Italy; Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea) from Russia; and Amyris (Amyris balsamifera) from Haiti. All three oils are calming and help with stress and all the concerns associated with stress: anxiety, depression, anger, frustration, confusion, and insomnia. Energetically, Bergamot is uplifting and deeply restorative. Clary Sage, too, is uplifting, but also nourishing. It gives unblocks stagnant energy, allowing for our intuition and inspiration to flow. Amyris nourishes the heart and the nervous system. It supports mental clarity and gives us the extra motivation we need to keep going. Enjoy!
