365 Day Challenge

365 Day Challenge

I love coming up with essential oil blends (my potions) so much but I don’t make enough time to do so. I have quite a collection of essential oils and I am eager to discover firsthand their unique properties. I figure since it is the new year, I would come up with a “challenge” for myself to really get into the oils, especially the ones I don’t usually use. For the first blend (1-1-21) I went with oils that I am familiar with, because I wanted to make a blend that was a harbinger of a 2021 filled with connection to Spirit (Cardamom - Elettaria cardamomum), moving from what is to what is possible (Bergamot - Citrus bergamia), and abundance in every facet of my life (Cedarwood Atlas - Cedrus atlantica). I diffused 4, 5, and 3 drops (respectively) . For more information on the intuitive aspect of aromatherapy, I like to go to Suzanne R Banks’ book Revelation! Reveal Your Destiny with Essential Oils. Her book really promotes the playful aspect of aromatherapy, which I incorporate with the “heady” science.

 

Aromatic profile: Spicy 42%, Woody 32%, Citrus 26%.
