There are several ways to take advantage of the benefits of these oils. My favorite way is to use pre-made blends that include them.
Balance – This blend includes Lavender, Orange, Lemon, Geranium, Frankincense, Rose, Chamomile, and Neroli, among other essential oils. So many from our list! I love massaging this with a carrier oil into sore muscles or diffusing it after a rough day.
Blossom – I LOVE the scent of this blend! It includes several oils including Orange, Frankincense, Chamomile, and more. This is the perfect mid-day pick me up.
