This week, I'm lucky enough to be on a lovely seaside getaway with my mom. Relaxing, soaking up the sun, and releasing all of the stress that builds from a busy schedule. Keeping up with multiple jobs and hobbies as well as making time for self-care and to blossom personal relationships can be a lot, even when you absolutely love the things you do! For those times when the stress is really building and a quick getaway isn't in the cards, there is Stress Away. The blend of copaiba, lime, cedarwood, ocotea, and lavender essential oils along with vanilla leave me feeling like I’m a thousand miles away from my everyday stresses, allowing me to come back to center and hit "refresh" - it really is the next best thing to lounging seaside!
Stress Away can be used aromatically, topically, and as a dietary supplement. Most often, I use a roll-on to roll a little bit onto my wrists, rub them together, and hold them up to my nose, inhaling the scent with several deep breaths. The roll-on has quickly become one of my favorites, and I love to use it in the beginning of my evening yoga classes to help students get centered and let go of any lingering stress from the workday as they ease into the practice.
Here are some other great ways to use this blend:
Dilute 1-2 drops and apply to the back of your neck and temples to minimize stress.
Diffuse 8 drops of Stress Away with 4 drops of Peppermint to uplift and unwind.
Add 10 drops of oil to 2 cups of epsom salt. Add to a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes.
Diffuse 8 drops of Stress Away with 4 drops of lavender before bedtime to promote healthy sleep.
Dilute and apply to wrists or back of next to calm nerves.
Add 2 drops to water and drink throughout the day to reduce stress and promote confidence.
