Getting away is not always realistic, especially in the age of COVID. However, there are many forms of escapism. Our senses transport us to other places from the comfort of our own homes, and scent is the most powerful transportation device we have. Here are some essential oil combinations to take you away when you need to decompress.
3 drops of Lavender + 2 drops of lemon + 2 drops of peppermint
Take a trip to the Province with this heavenly combination. Lavender transports you to the fields of France with its sweet, refreshing aroma while lemon has a clean, calming scent that pairs perfectly with lavender. Peppermint adds a cool breeze to this soothing mixture that will help breathe deep, both because it helps aid respiration and due to its aromatic properties.
Grecian Citrus Grove
3 drops of lemon + 3 drops of orange + 3 drops of tea tree
This summery, sweet combination transports you to the hills of Greece or the groves of Italy. Savhera’s lemon essential oil is sourced in Italy, and a whiff of it transports you to a mediterranean meadow. Orange essential oil is the perfect pick-me-up and instantly boosts your mood with its aroma and antiseptic properties. Tea tree oil provides the perfect balance to this citrusy blend
3 drops of Frankincense + 3 drops of cedarwood + 2 drops of eucalyptus
This rich, woosy blend is both calming and transportive. Frankincense has been used for thousands of years and is deeply significant in many cultures. It can ease anxiety and has anti-inflammatory properties. Cedarwood is a perfect compliment to frankincense with its heady scent that transports you to far away lands. This oil encourages restful slumber, and helps reduce anxiety and manage those cortisol levels. Eucalyptus balances the heavy scents of frankincense and cedarwood, adding a cool note to this striking blend. In addition to clearing nasal passages, eucalyptus helps keep the bugs at bay during summer!
