Muscle Spray Jemma Bailey
Copaiba, Ice Blue, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Frankincense

So what’s in it?

This little blend has many oils that are amazing for so many reasons. Let’s start with…

Ice Blue:

Ice blue (or Deep Blue as it’s known in the US) is a specifically designed blend by doTERRA especially to help muscles. It consists of oils such as Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum & Osmanthus. This blend is an amazing blend that can be used on its own, but when you need something a little extra, adding it to this muscle blend with a few extra oils makes it much more powerful.

Copaiba:

Copaiba is this amazing oil that has so much potential. The main constituent (Beta-caryophyllene) works on the endocannabinoid system and has great benefits for those aches and pains. It also has benefits of calming the body and any heightened feelings that come up when we are feeling sore and tense. Win Win. I love that it is in this blend.

Lemongrass:

Lemongrass has the main constituents of Geranial and Neral. Amongst the many other properties of both Neral & Geranial, they both have anti-inflammatory properties which is beneficial to a blend specifically for achy muscles. Add the bonus of the lemony scent of lemongrass and this combination is a Win Win!

Marjoram:

Marjoram is an underrated oil. It not only does it help ease the effects of pain within the body, it also helps with spasms and tight muscles too. It has a calmative effect and is a great oil for sleep! But we aren’t here to talk about sleep are we! We are here to discuss using Marjoram in a muscle blend. Using in a massage blend directly to the muscles that are tight and tender is the best way to use Marjoram.

Frankincense:

Frankincense is a powerful powerful oil. Not only does it have beneficial effects in its own right, but it boosts the essential oils it is partnered with. Win Win! Frankincense is a great oil to promote feelings of relaxation and calm. It also supports immune health and the cellular function of our body. Helping our bodies to relax and ease tension when we are in pain, helps our bodies to heal.

Diffuser Blends

My 5 favourite diffuser blends for Sleep

At some point in our lives, we have all had trouble sleeping. If I was a betting woman, I would bet some of you do too. So, I want to share with you, some essential oil sleep blends with you. I have 5 trusty sleep diffuser blends that I LOVE using. It depends on my mood to which one I choose, but these are all on high rotation in my house. 

1. “Sleepy Snuggles” Diffuser Blend

Juniper Berry – When diffused, Juniper Berry provides a cleansing, refreshing aroma. It is perfect in a sleep blend as it has a calming, grounding effect. Just be warned – it drips out of the bottle really fast!

Vetiver – One of my absolute favourite oils! Vetiver has a rich, exotic, complex aroma. Vetiver’s calming, grounding effect on the emotions, it is an ideal oil to add to a sleep blend. This oil is extremely thick and takes “forever” to come out of the bottle.

Bergamot – When diffused, Bergamot promotes a calm relaxed environment. Bergamot is unique among citrus oils due to its ability to be both uplifting and calming to the emotions. As an added bonus it smells divine!

2. “Her Sleep Blend” Diffuser Blend

So we already know the reasons I love vetiver and juniper berry. Exchanging the citrus smell of bergamot for the woody, herbal, floral scent of clary sage, changes with whole tone of this diffuser blend.

Clary Sage – The main chemical component of Clary Sage is linalyl acetate, part of the esters group, making it one of the most relaxing, soothing, and balancing essential oils. When added to a sleep diffuser blend, inhaling Clary Sage promotes feelings of relaxation.

 

3. “Peaceful Sleep” Diffuser Blend

This oh so simple sleep blend is simply divine. It uses two of the oils that are part of the Home Essentials Kit. If you haven’t yet purchase your essential oils, (and you aren’t already working with someone else) you can do so here. (You will join my oily team).

Lavender – Called the ‘swiss army knife of oils’ because it is so useful for so many things. But most people know lavender for its calming and relaxing qualities. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. But added to the diffuser and its the bomb!

Easy Air –  Is a blend of essential oils including Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Lemon, Cardamom, Ravintsara, and Ravensara. When Easy Air is diffused at nighttime, calms the senses for a restful nights sleep. It is especially useful during the winter months to feel clear when breathing during the night. 

4. “Sweet Dreams” Diffuser Blend

Adding Lavender Peace to Juniper Berry is simple ‘the bomb’!

Lavender Peace – combines essential oils renowned for their ability to soothe the senses and calm emotions. These include Lavender Flower, Cedarwood, Ho Wood Leaf, Ylang Ylang Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Vetiver Root, Vanilla Bean Absolute, & Hawaiian Sandalwood Wood. Lavender Peace is soothing to the senses and calming to the emotions.

5. “Sweet Sleep” Diffuser Blend

Finally, adding cedarwood and marjoram to lavender just creates a divine blend. Marjoram is an understated oil but it has many great benefits. Despite being one of the the herb oils, it has a gentle aroma. 

Cedarwood –  It has a grounding aroma that evokes feelings of spiritual and emotional wellbeing. Diffusing Cedarwood is especially beneficial after a difficult day to create a relaxing environment.

Marjoram – Has a uplifting, herbaceous aroma that was known to the Greeks and Romans as a symbol of happiness. Marjoram creates a positive, calming aroma and promotes feelings of calmness and ease. Added with cedarwood and lavender it is simply divine.

I hope you like my favourite diffuser blends just as much as I do!

As an added bonus, why not try one last diffuser blend. Diffuse 3 drops Frankincense, 3 drops Lavender and 2 drops Wild Orange. Bliss!
