Fragrant chi for encouragment and nurturing support

aromatherapy diffuser blend to encourage support in every area of our lives

Feng Shui Design: Enhancing the atmosphere of our homes and workspaces with Fragrant Chi

Diffusing pure essential oils in our living and working spaces can radically improve the atmosphere. In a busy stressful workspace or in your own home, you can uplift and enhance the atmosphere purely by introducing scent.

Recipe:

“A warm hug” – sweet and comforting diffuser blend: 

5 drops Carrot seed oil (Daucus Carota): 

Carrot seed essential oil is

  • rich, warm, earthy and herbaceous in aroma
  • regulating
  • relaxing
  • nurturing
  • comforting energetically.
  • reassures us in times of over-thinking or worry.

It is distilled from the seeds which are often associated with:

  • nourishment
  • reproduction
  • the potential for new growth.

Just think of the size of a seed and all of the potential for growth it contains.

Seed oils are considered:

  • nourishing for the earth element within us
  • to allow us to feel more grounded, strong and courageous.

This in turn supports our ability to express ourselves creatively. 

3 drops Ginger oil (zingiber officinalis) :

Ginger essential oil is

  • spicy and “rooty”/woody in fragrance
  • invigorating
  • motivating
  • uplifting
  • said to activate the mind and awaken the senses.
  • It warms and encourages us
  • Said to lift us out of “sad syndrome” which can afflict many in the depths of winter.
  • Its sweet pungent scent moves “stuck energy” lifting us out of lethargy, motivating us into action.

2 drops Clove bud (Syzygium aromaticatum) :

Clove bud:

  • Has spicy, rich, warm aroma
  • Offers emotional support when we feel low in energy. L
  • Lifts us  up, supporting our self confidence
  • Said to warm both mind and body
  • Leaves a lingering warm aroma
  • Is said to purify the air and support our immune system
  • Encourages vibrant good health.

Although the clove bud is technically a “flower” it has a lot in common with the seed oils in terms of encouraging us toward new growth.

Method:

Gently diffuse these pure essential oils in your diffuser.

Always ensure that small animals can leave the area if the aroma is too much for them. Take special care around young babies and those with challenged health. Diffuse at a good distance (place diffuser on a high shelf to allow the oils to disperse into the room more widely) to avoid any discomfort.

Ventilate the space well and diffuse for 20mts at a time to ensure the fragrant chi in this blend feels uplifting to your body, mind and spirit.

Scent is deeply personal so it is important to find essential oils that resonate with positive memories for you. If this blend feels in any way uncomfortable physically to you, then discontinue at once.

Listen to your body, instinctively it will know what feels right for you, right now.

Safety

NB Treat essential oils as medicine

  • They are highly concentrated pure extracts from the plant world (it takes a hugh amount of plant material to make just a few drops of essential oil).
  • If at any time you feel any discomfort from diffusing any of these oils, stop at once.
  • It is always a good idea to test if any oil is ok for you: open the cap and hold just the cap at a distance sniffing the air – if you feel any constriction in your breathing, then this oil is not for you.
  • Small animals and young babies and those with compromised immune systems need to be treated with extra care.
  • Diffuse oils at a safe distance in a well ventilated space.
  • Allow for small animals to be able to leave the room if they wish to do so – remember their sense of smell is much more intense than ours so care needs to be taken not to overwhelm their system.
  • Start with a half strength diffuser blend if in doubt and work from there.
  • You will only need 8-10 drops total to fill your space with their beautiful scent.
  • Diffuse for 20 mts at a time.
