Essential oils for clarity and calm

Essential oils have a powerful ability to influence our mind and mood.

The potent little aroma molecules can easily create shifts when we need them most. For calm and peace, essential oils can’t be beat when we use them at the right time and in the right space. Calming oils can help us during life’s tense moments – at night when we need to wind down, or for soothing frustrations and irritations.

These suggested essential oils have long been associated with both clear thinking and a calm state of mind.

Lavender has been my go to essential oil for a while now. I use plug ins at home snd work, and it definitely gives me a sense of calm whenever I walk in. Great stress reliever.

I agree with Cindy O about the lavender. That is my go-to essential oils! If you do wake up, you can just re-spritz and put a bit more oil on yourself.

Are there any oils that will help you stay asleep? I tend to wake up in the middle of the night or very early in the morning. Thanks!

AuraCacia has helped me transition from having problems relaxing and falling asleep to a healthy and natural sleep cycle in a few really simple steps. I spritz pillowcases and sheets lightly with AuraCacia Lavendar or Pillow Potion. It’s very subtle but enhances the whole environment. Just before tucking in, I dab a few drops of lavendar essential oil on pulse points and a little on upper lip, just under nostrils. Within a few moments of my head hitting the pillow, I’m generally drifting off to sleep. Thank you, AuraCacia!

We'd love to hear your perspective.
