This easy-to-make formula is based on centuries-old aromatherapy wisdom that reduces anxiety and apprehension.
After all, we can all use a little more calm and reassurance from time to time–and this spray smells simply divine! . . .
According to aromatherapy wisdom:
Lavender is one of the most comforting oils, often used for anxiety in those who feel oppressed or emotionally confused, or feel they don’t know where to turn . . .
Palmarosa nourishes heart energy and has a cooling, calming, supportive effect. It alleviates fear and insecurity . . .
Jasmine combines a calming effect with a distinctly upliting one and is especially useful for anxiety when it alternates with feelings of depression . . .
Geranium calms nervous anxiety and alleviates insecurity . . .
1. Place one cup of water in a spray bottle, and add the following pure essential oils:
3 drops lavender
2 drops palmarosa
2 drops jasmine
1 drop geranium
2. Shake well and spray upward toward the center of the room, or onto any non-staining surface.
