Spring officially arrived last Tuesday, but boy did we get a big surprise here in Pittsburgh Wednesday morning. This is a picture of my hubby’s and my commute to work on Wednesday morning. Our usual 50 minute drive was stretched out to a 3 1/2 hour drive. This was one morning we should have just worked from home. 🙁

Although it was my hubby doing the driving, my nerves were just a bit on edge, to say the least! The roads were an icy, snowy mess. And we missed being slid into by other cars numerous times.

It’s mornings like these that I am so very thankful for my essential oils. I carry them with me all the time. So I pulled out my bottle of doTERRA”s Grounding Blend, known as Balance and took a couple of deep sniffs of it.

doTERRA Balance, promotes tranquility while bringing harmony to the mind and body, and balance to the emotions. The warm, woody aroma of dōTERRA Balance Grounding Blend creates a sense of calm and well-being. It’s a perfect blend of Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil to offer an enticing fragrance that promotes tranquility and relaxation. Spruce, one of the oils in dōTERRA Balance, was used by Native Americans for health and spiritual reasons and is still used today to bring harmony to the mind and body. Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile can ease anxious feelings, while Frankincense provides a grounding, balancing effect on emotions.

Some of the ways I use it are:

  • I begin my day by putting Balance on the bottom of my feet to promote feelings of calmness and tranquility throughout the day.
  • Balance is a great oil blend to use during an AromaTouch® Hand Massage. (Which I give for free at events I attend)
  • I apply it to my wrists or neck to help ease anxious feelings.
  • I diffuse in my car during road trips to create a calming, soothing environment.

How to use it:

  • Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
  • Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
