I use a Thieves blend and add a drop of another oil dependent on what we need at the time. To the 500ml diffuser I add water to the line and then 5 drops of Thieves and one extra of eucalyptus if we have colds coming on, or one of sweet orange if I want that happy Christmas smell and energy, or one extra of peppermint if the room is stuffy and needs an instant cleanse.
I also make it into roll-ons but for the diffuser it´s benefits are for the whole family as diffusing is one of the safest ways to get all the benefits of these powerful oils for children and animals.
Thieves essential oil blend is clove, cinnamon, rosemary, eucalyptus and lemon. If you do not have Thieves as a blend then buy the oils individually and make your own blend. Having rosemary, eucalyptus and lemon are quite staple oils to have once you see the huge anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic properties these oils inherently possess.
This blend of oils is great in the diffuser but also in Epsom Salts and a drop of carrier oil ( whatever you have available to suit your skin type) in the bath for an amazing 20 minute soak.
Lavender 4/5 drops
Vetiver or Atlas Cedar or Frankincense 1/2 drops.
Made initially for my son to help him study and with exam nerves. Now however it is often diffused in the home and office for my brain-fog which is menopausal and thyroid related. It works!
Peppermint 2 drops
Rosemary 2 drops
Lime 2 drops ( Use any other citrus oil if you do not have Lime in your collection at the moment).
I use this whilst practicing yoga, or reading. It always inspires some creative work.
