None of us are getting out as much as we would prefer.

But scent is one of the quickest ways to shift your emotional state. Think of how quickly a perfume can conjure a memory – and the emotion around that memory. When I first started using essential oils back in the 90s, I did not know why they worked to make me feel better, only that they did. Science has caught up!

I concocted this blend to evoke the smell of a grassy meadow after a rain. This also allows me to simply relax and reset. 

This new aromatherapy blend will bring the delicious, comforting aromas of the outdoors to you—I’ve used it a lot over the last few weeks during quarantine. It’s easy to imagine that I’m being held in a hammock, swinging in an easy breeze, on a porch overlooking a green field with the sunshine sparkling the morning dew.



Basil

Basil is a beautiful and useful oil for when you feel weary and unable to cope. The aroma also helps when feeling bone-tired no matter how much sleep you get. The aroma is thought to help enliven the prana, or life force, and refresh the natural rhythms and balance of the body.


BERGAMOT

This uplifting and refreshing citrus scent may help to relieve depression and tension. I love using this aroma when I wake (despite a decent amount of sleep) simply exhausted. As the “oil of self-acceptance,” bergamot boosts self-confidence and promotes feelings of optimism and hope. I love this oil especially when my inner bully is over-active.


CORIANDER

Coriander helps on days when you are feeling very weak. The aroma also helps promote calm – especially during times of apprehension or uncertainty. Known as the “oil of integrity,” the aroma can help us shift from looking to others for validation to respecting ourselves and our own originality. Coriander assists us in hearing and honoring our inner guide.


Douglas fir

Douglas Fir provides a sense of rootedness which can aid in relaxation. It also provides a sense of clarity and focus amid brain fog, which is why I included this oil in this blend. Douglas Fir can also help soothe emotional pain – especially that caused by families of origin – and promote healing by shifting and opening perspectives. This scent can also help us to break out of difficult patterns.


VETIVER

Vetiver is a grass native to the tropics, and it’s earthy aroma may help promote recovery from trauma or shock. After so many weeks of feeling unwell, I love this oil as a base for blends to support me through challenging times. As a natural sleep aid, this scent can confer a sense of tranquility and peace, which I very much needed. In fact, it’s known as the “oil of tranquility,” and can help to relieve stress and to feel connected to the world and our community.
