Motivation and momentum support through change and transformation

 The Scent of Home

Scent is our first sense to develop. It has the ability to transport us immediately into memory. Scientific research has proven that our sense of smell impacts our limbic system. This in turn sets the tone for our mood. It has a direct mind-body connection.

Pure essential oils can engender a desired atmosphere; be that a peaceful, enlivening or uplifting one.

The only constant in life is change

The irony of this is that as human beings we don’t particularly like change. It brings with it a sense of instability. Change can feel tiring as a result. As we move through the seasons it is important to support our motivation to keep going through change.

Try the following diffuser blend to keep your energy upbeat as you move through times of change and transformation in your life.

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
