10 uses for Sacred Mountain Essential Oil™

Sacred Mountain™

topical aromatic

Sacred Mountain™ promotes feelings of strength, empowerment, grounding, and protection that are a result of being close to nature. This blend of conifer essential oils, including spruce, fir, and cedarwood, evokes the feelings of sanctity found in the mountains.

Sacred Mountain microcompliant

The 3 conifer oils have been traditionally used by the North American Indians symbolically to represent the umbrella they create in protecting the earth and bring energy in from the universe.  At night, the animals in the wild lie under trees for the protection, recharging and rejuvenation the trees bring to them.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use.  Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water.  Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists.  Possible skin sensitivity.

 

  1. Fear of failure/empowerment:  We are our own worst enemy.  Fear of failure oftentimes prevents us from moving forward.  Sacred Mountain can help empower you to take that first step.
  2. Public speaking/strength:  A very common fear and one that is not easily overcome.  Sacred Mountain can help you get the courage you need to take that stage with more confidence.
  3. Social situations/strength:  For me, social situations are scarier than any stage ever was!  Sacred Mountain (combined with Valor for an extra punch) help me overcome my fears and put myself out there more.
  4. Loss of a loved one/strength:  When a loved one passes, the whole family grieves.  Be the support your family needs while managing your own grief as well.
  5. Resisting temptations/empowerment:  What tempts you?  Sugar? Smoking? Gambling?  Sacred Mountain can shore up your defenses and allow you to strengthen your resolve.
  6. Controlling emotions/grounding:  You can’t always control how you feel, but you can control how your act on your feelings.  Using Sacred Mountain may prevent you from doing or saying something you’ll regret
  7. Dealing with conflict/empowerment: Conflict is never easy and never comfortable but sometimes it is very necessary.  Sacred Mountain can help you steel your resolve for that conversation no one wants to have.
  8. Self care/strength: If you are like most women, your needs are subservient to the needs of your family.  Sacred Mountain can give you the emotional strength to take care of yourself without feeling guilty.
  9. Leadership/empowerment:  Give your confidence the boost it needs to be a more effective leader.
  10. Asserting oneself/strength:  Sometimes letting others know that you are displeased is a very uncomfortable thing to do.   Let Sacred Mountain help you get the courage you need to speak up.

10 uses for Grounding™ essential oil

 Grounding™

topical aromatic

 

Grounding™ is a relaxing and balancing blend of essential oils that provides a stabilizing influence. Emotional chaos can lead to poor decisions. Grounding helps you cope with reality in a positive manner.

Grounding micro compliant

Removing an excess electrical charge from an object is called grounding.  Removing an excess emotional groundedcharge can also be a form of grounding.  Tree and root oils are wonderful to help you get reconnected.  If you picture the root system of a tree as an extension of your feet you’ll get a visual feel for what it means to be grounded as that root system anchors you to the earth.  Picture emotional energy/electricity coming from the earth up one leg and exiting out the other.  For me, being grounded does not mean “control”.  Instead, being grounded is letting things take it’s natural course.

Here are some situations where I find Grounding to be beneficial.  I put a drop or 2 in my hands, tent my hands over my nose and mouth and inhale.  Also, applying Grounding topically to heart or root chakra (base of tailbone) is helpful as well.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use.  Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water.  Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists.  Possible skin sensitivity.

    1. Mental clarity:  When there are so many thoughts in my head I have a hard time focusing.
    2. Calming:  Work, family, relationships can be the cause of distractions and leave you feeling unbalanced.  Diffuse grounding to get back in focus.
    3. Emotional Balance:  Ever feel torn and pulled in multiple directions at once?
    4. Personal loss:  Everyone handles personal loss a bit differently.  Grounding can help you find an outlet for that grief.
    5. In a rut:  When I feel like I’m in a rut and lack the motivation to move forward.
    6. Renew Focus:  When I forget what’s really important in life.
    7. Chaos:  When I feel control slipping.  Again, for me grounding isn’t giving me control but letting me see that my perceived control is an illusion.  Just like a mighty river, there are things I can’t control.
    8. Family obligations:  Family gatherings, dinners, in-laws can be sources of increased tension.
    9. The to-do list that won’t quit:  When I have so much on my plate that I feel that it will never get done.
    10. Impending big decisions:  When I feel frozen by indecision because I don’t know the “right” decision to make. Grounding helps me be at peace with the decision that I make.
Couldn’t we all use more Grounding in our lives??

Ylang Ylang essential oil

Ylang ylang

(Cananga odorata)

Ylang Ylang essential oil is sourced from a beautiful, drooping, yellow bloom found on the cananga tree.

Ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) has a sweet, soft, flowery fragrance that has made it a romantic favorite. In Indonesia, the petals are often strewn across a marriage bed. Ylang ylang is extremely effective in calming and bringing about a sense of relaxation, and it may help with releasing feelings of anger, tension, and nervous irritability. It has a long history in skin and hair care products, particularly in Asia, where it is used to promote luxuriant hair.

BATH SALTS using essential oils

BATH SALTS

What kind of salt do I use?

Sea Salt, Epsom salt, Dead Sea Salt, Kosher salt or a combination of salts. Salts can come in several grain sizes and combining them can make a visually appealing mix. Keep in mind larger salts take longer to dissolve and can be painful on sensitive tushies.

What else can I add?

Some people use 1/4 cup baking soda per 1 cup salt to add a bit of fizz to their bath.  Others add carrier oils such as Jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil for added moisturization.  To be super fancy you can add small bits of dried herbs or flowers for accents (lavender, rose petals, rosemary). Also, these salts make great gifts and adding 1-2 drops of food or soap coloring adds a wonderfully flair!  Note: Be VERY careful about adding coloring to your bath salts as using too much food coloring may stain the skin or your tub.  Find soap colorants on amazon HERE

How many drops of essential oil do I add?

Again, this is mostly personal taste. 5-10 drops of essential oil per cup of salt is a good place to start.   Use approximately 1/2 cup of salt per bath.

How do I mix them?

Add your salts into a stainless steel bowl and add your coloring, baking soda, oil or flower bits first.  Mix well.  Then add your essential oils.  Let oils dry for a couple hours before putting in an air tight glass jar.

How do I  use them?

Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of bath salt mix in a regular sized tub.  Pour salt in a warm bath and wait for the salt to dissolve.  Did you know you can also use bath salts in the shower?  Just grab a handful and add a little bit of shower gel and gently massage on your skin to exfoliate dead skin cells.
