What they say? I recently got introduced to doTERRA essential oils by Amy Innes, founder of Healthy, happy mind and am totally HOOKED…. Living in a fast paced city like London, Amy suggested three types of blends for me. She suggested, the wild orange blend for energising, invigorating, and uplifting benefits… ( I use first thing in the morning before my meditation, so by the time I am finished, I am feeling of joyful, happy, and motivated for the day), after lunch I rub a few drops of Balance into my palms , which is a grounding blend, perfect for that afternoon dip, it also helps to ease any anxious feelings, promotes a sense of calmness and evokves feelings of tranquility and balance. Lastly after a nice epsom salt soak, I use the Lavander blend before bed time, the scent is so soothing, relaxing, and helps promote a peaceful sleep as well as reduces any anxious and tense feelings.
