My 5 Favourite Essential Oil Blends for High Vibe Entrepreneurs
Before we dive into one of my favourite wellness topics & remedies to raise my vibration, let’s cover the basics of essential oils real quick!
Firstly, what are essential oils?
Essential oils are the ‘essence’ or fragrant parts extracted from plants obtained by water or steam distillation or cold pressing. The oils inside a plant are extracted in high concentrations, 100 times more potent than the plant itself.
Why are essential oils good for you?
Aromatherapy has been used for centuries as an alternative medicine, it’s safe, and inexpensive. They contain only pure ingredients derived from mineral and botanical sources and do not contain any artificial or synthetic chemicals, preservatives, fragrances or colours that may produce harmful side effects.
We ingest different chemicals into our bodies that are either inhaled and enter our bloodstream, or absorbed through the skin. We want to be aware of what we come in contact to and limit harmful chemicals while also increasing exposure to natural substances that will improve our wellbeing.
Yes essential oils smell great, but they also treat many physical and mental conditions. They are one of the highest vibrating things you can absorb into your body, which will as a result increase your own vibration and help you feel your best. (Everything has a vibration including the food we eat and people we surround ourself with! Surround yourself with as many high vibe sources as possible)
Now that we have the basics covered, let’s get into my 5 favourite essential oil blends for those entrepreneurs who want to have their best, most high vibe work day!🤗
My 5 Favourite Essential Oil Blends for High Vibe Entrepreneurs
1. Energy & Mood: Citrus anything! Such a lemon, grapefruit, & lime.
Citrus oils are great to use in the morning to start your day happy and energized. I’ll even carry citrus essential oil with me throughout the day in case I need an afternoon pick me up. (For more energizing tips you can also check out my blog post, My 5 Minute Energizing Morning Routine)
How to use it: My favourite way to apply citrus essential oil is to mix it with coconut oil and warm it up in my hands, then apply it to my face and neck, while avoiding the eye area. Citrus mixed with coconut oil smells freaking delightful, like a SNACK!😍 (but don’t actually eat it😅)
And citrus oil has degreasing and astringent properties, as well as skin brightening properties. Citrus oil can help to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and balance your skin’s natural production of oil. (Source) Perfect for people like moi who have combination/oily skin but still want to moisturize using oils and not use a drugstore product. So you’ll get lovely skin, feel happy and energized with this oil combination!
2. Focus & Clarity: Peppermint
Giiiiirl, put down that third cup of coffee and say sayonara to that jittery, heart racing sense of focus. Instead say hellooooo to feeling tapped in, sharp yet relaxed & blissful with peppermint oil!
Man do I love this essential oil. It’s also anti-inflammatory which I’m always looking for natural remedies that reduce inflammation. And the effervescent quality makes you tingle. This cooling effect is wonderful in the summer or if you feel warm, however in the winter it can make you feel more chilly and tingly. Just be aware of the sensation 😉
On occasion I’ll mix in some citrus for a boost of energy & wakefulness. Can you imagine the smell of minty orange or minty lemon? It’s heavenly!😇
How to use it: I wear this like I would perfume. I dab a bit on my wrists and rub them on my neck, I even put a little dab right below my nose so I can keep smelling it for a little while. I don’t dilute it (most sources say to dilute with a carrier oil if you apply it to the skin, I haven’t had problems but do what’s best for you!) so the scent is strong.
People have told me they know when I’m around because they can smell peppermint before they see me. Not the worst way to be recognized in my opinion.
Or if you just need a bit, take a slow, long inhale (think a yoga breath) from the bottle (maybe don’t do this in public around people to avoid weird looks lol) or put a drop on your palms and cup around your nose as you inhale.
3. Stress: Sweet Orange & Lavender
Anxiety be gone! I feel so blissful with this essential oil combination. Lavender is very relaxing and calming and sweet orange makes you happy. The perfect combo if you are having a particularly stressful day and need to chill out!
I have a product from Sage called Stress Release and it has lavender and orange essential oil in it as well as a few other floral essential oils.
How to use it: I love Stress Release from Sage because it’s premixed and comes in a roll on applicator. So I just roll it across my forehead, behind my ears, along my jawline (anywhere you carry tension) or right below my nose so I can smell it consistently.
The product from Sage is pricier than buying essential oils in a kit, so an alternative is to carry these two individual oils in your purse and just dab a couple drops in the same places I mentioned above.👌
4. Congestion, Headaches & Muscle Tension: Peppermint & Eucalyptus
Peppermint and eucalyptus are the first two oils I was introduced to by my friend, which sparked my love for essential oils. That combo is just like Vicks Vapo Rub if you’ve every used that stuff (the oils are just natural and in my opinion smell a lot nicer and more pleasant)
Peppermint & eucalyptus combined can take you from stuffy and congested to your airways feeling fresh and completely clear, they also relieve headache symptoms. The perfect combo if you are under the weather and are still trying to get work done instead of curl up in bed all day feeling sick.
I also bought a blend from Saje with peppermint, eucalyptus, lavender & rosemary oils combined. They named it peppermint halo and it’s MAGICAL! 💖
How to use it: You apply it around your hairline like a halo (I avoid the area right beside my eyes because it can tingle and I find that irritating so close to my eyes) also great on the back of my neck, upper back or anywhere that’s sore after a workout. Also a little dab right below my nose or on my chest if I’m feeling congested so I keep breathing it in and it clears my airways right up!
5. Sleep: Lavender
Lavender is very calming and one of the highest vibrating essential oils out there. It increases slow-wave sleep which is instrumental for slowing heartbeat and relaxing muscles. (Source)
Omgggg if you ever have problems falling asleep like I used to, take a warm shower, put lavender oil on your skin, read a book before bed and you’ll have no problems drifting off. I sleep soundly, wake up very refreshed and with velvety soft skin.🤗
In case you want to know the skin benefits too, lavender oil is moisturizing, full of antioxidants that help reverse premature aging, soothes irritated skin and treats acne with it’s antibacterial properties. Again basically magic in a bottle for your skin and sleep routine!
How to use it: Put a few drops in a diffuser and have it run during the night. Your bedroom will feel like a spa. Or what I do is I mix a couple drops of lavender oil with olive oil (feel free to substitute for another carrier oil you prefer) and massage this on to my face and neck after a shower before bed. It’s doing double duty because I can smell the aroma which relaxes me before bed and it’s A TREAT for my skin. 😘
