BACKGROUND Each essential oil in Peace & Calming was carefully selected for its unique benefits:

  • Tangerine: contains esters and aldehydes that are supportive of calming the nervous system and releasing anxious thoughts and nerves
  • Orange: uplifting to the mind, helps bring a sense of joy and peace; commonly used in aromatherapy to help release anxious feelings
  • Ylang ylang: supports relaxation, balances male and female energies to restore confidence and equilibrium
  • Patchouli: high in sesquiterpenes, this oil stimulates the limbic center of the brain to support grounding and centering, helps clarify the thoughts, allowing the mind to relax and release insecurities
  • Blue Tansy: helps cleanse the liver and lymphatic system, combats anger and negative emotions

KEY CONSTITUENTS Constituents are naturally occurring compounds in plants (and therefore essential oils) that give them sprecic health-supporting properties

  • Sesquiterpenes: known for their ability to calm and focus the mind and central nervous system
  • Limonene: known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-stress support, this is a powerful constituent with many health benefits

PEACE AND CALMING & EMOTIONS Peace and Calming is an incredible tool when it comes to emotional health! The Blue Tansy in this blend is specifically supportive of calming the Central Nervous System! Here are two ways to use this oil blend to shift your thoughts and emotions from counselor Eryn Jones:

  • For when you feel out of control and out of your depth. Balance and healthy boundaries can be the opposite of out of control. Using Peace & Calming on your stomach, focusing on the mantra "I am content" can really help quell strong desires to be in control. Control is something we often seek subconsciously and don't notice until we feel, well "out of it!". Thus out of control. Peace & Calming can be a huge help in this area!
  • For when you feel unwanted or unlovable. Often, feelings of deep unease, instability, and moodiness are born from this deep false belief about ourselves. Just smelling P & C can help support our hormones too. Often our hormones can get out of whack when we feel deep sadness and unease AND hormones being out of whack can cause these sad feelings and beliefs- everything is connected! Peace & Calming can help both the feelings and hormonal balance!
