Peace & Calming

This essential oil blend was a real treat that came in our Premium Starter Kit. The first time I remember using it, was when our youngest son was a toddler. He was the child who would get that second burst of energy really late at night while the rest of us were like zombies, ready for bed. I remembered the name of this blend and thought, why not! So I popped the top, rubbed this blend onto the bottoms of his feet and within 20 minutes all was quiet. He was asleep! I didn’t know what was in this blend but I fell in love with it that night and surprisingly so did our son. It became part of his bedtime routine from that night on and we nicknamed it “his oil.”

 

Since then, I’ve found quite a few lovely ways of using this blend and wanted to share a few ideas with you.

 

Ways to Use Peace & Calming

  1. In the diffuser to help create a calm and emotionally balancing environment.
  2. A couple of drops in 1 cup of Epsom salt added to a bath for a soothing bedtime routine.
  3. Speaking of bath, how about some homemade bath bombs using Peace & Calming. These make wonderful gifts too!
  4. You can make a lovely linen and pillow spray.
  5. Use a couple of drops with a carrier oil for a relaxing massage after a long day.
  6. Simply breathe directly from the bottle when stuck in a traffic jam to stay calm during rush hour.
  7. Create a calming roll-on to gift a mother in need.
  8. Whip up a creamy body butter using Peace & Calming for an after bath luxury.

 

Peace & Calming

Peace & Calming is a super popular essential oil blend. It contains essential oils of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy.

There is also a Peace & Calming II version of this blend that consists of Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, German Chamomile, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia, Davana, and Young Living’s exclusive Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oils.

Both blends smell incredible and are a hit in our home!

The essential oil has a sweet, flowery scent that is especially favored by women.

When diffused, Ylang ylang can bring the aroma of springtime with its floral heart notes.

Momentum with Confidence

I was recently gifted this blend by one of my team members and had never heard of it before. What a special, heartfelt gift and delightful surprise! She included the recipe and I cannot wait to share this with others, including you. But first, let’s take a look at how Webster defines momentum and confidence. Talk about powerful!

********************************************************************************

Momentum: the strength or force that allows something to continue or to grow stronger or faster as time passes
 
Confidence: faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way
*********************************************************************************

Watch Royal Crown Diamond, Lindsey Gremont making it below. She explains how this blend can help break you free of self-limitation not only in your business, but your personal life as well.

Momentum Blend for Change and Confidence

This blend is best used as a roll-on so that you can take it wherever you go! I keep one in my purse and one at my desk to help instill a bit of hustle in my day.

• 10 drops Sacred Frankincense– an amazing oil for feelings of worthlessness, unworthiness, and blame.
• 8 drops Believe– for feelings of dishonesty towards yourself. Encourages feelings of strength and faith that empowers you to move to a higher level of awareness. Using this oil enables you to move past emotional barriers so that you can reach your goals.
• 5 drops Into the Future– empowers you to leave the past behind with confidence. Keeps you from accepting mediocrity and instills strength and joy when facing fears and challenges.
• 5 drops Motivation– clears feelings of fear and procrastination. Enables you to move forward in a positive direction.
• 3 drops Highest Potential– for feelings of annoyance and disconnect with oneself. Instills a sense of strong self-confidence and purpose while harmonizing your emotions and uplifting your spirits.
• 3 drops Gathering– for focus and getting out of the daily grind. Leads you on the path to higher achievement. Helps you overcome chaotic energy that diverts us from achieving our goals.
• 3 drops Present Time– for feelings of resistance to change. Promotes focus on the present instead of concentrating on the past which leads to counter productivity.
• 1 drop Abundance– takes away feelings of worry and lack of substance to your life. Promotes prosperity and joy while facing challenges and opens us to a wealth of possibilities. Also known as the “Law of Attraction” oil.

All of these lovely essential oils are available at 24% off retail HERE.

Loving Preparation- Momentum Blend

To create momentum using essential oils simply add each oil above to a roll-on bottle. Feel free to add a carrier like sweet almond, jojoba, fractionated coconut oil, or grapeseed oil to the shoulder of the bottle if desired. Pop on the roller top and apply as needed.

To Use:

When you’re feeling like you’re taking one step forward and two steps back, apply the blend on each wrist and inhale deeply for 2-3 breaths. Think clearly about your intensions for challenging situations you need to face that day. I like using this when I’m dragging my feet over things I don’t feel like doing. This blend helps you create momentum to get things done!

Christmas with the PSK: Stress Away

Stress Away essential oil blend contains a unique combination of Lime essential oil and Vanilla extract. It’s this distinct mix of Vanilla and Lime that gives Stress Away its unique and pleasant aroma, among other benefits. Stress Away also includes Copaiba, which has a history of beneficial properties in topical application; Lavender, with its refreshing and calming scent; and Cedarwood, which features the powerful plant constituent cedrol. These ingredients are expertly blended with the exotic scent of Ocotea, a unique Ecuadorian-sourced essential oil.

This essential oil blend is revered by men and women for it’s calming properties and also for it’s aroma. Come take a look at how to give the gift of Stress Away this year.

 

Bath salts are always a hit during the holidays and when paired with Stress Away essential oil blend, who wouldn’t want to enjoy a relaxing bath? The “Chill Pill” roll-on can be taken anywhere, pop it in your pocket or bag and then pull it out during the holiday hustle and bustle. It makes a fantastic gift for the busy person on your list or someone who needs a little extra boost in the “chill pill” area.

Whipped body butter is an amazingly creamy and has a luxurious feel when applied.

Ornamen

Another fun way to gift Stress Away is by tucking the 5ml bottle into a plastic ornament and paired with a diffuser necklace!

7. Holiday Helper

Holiday Helper is an emotionally balancing blend to help you unwind after the busy gift-making or holiday shopping. It helps to keep the mood uplifted and equally calm.

Did you know that you can take any diffuser blend and turn it into a room spray? You can! Simply add the desired amount to a glass or stainless steel spray/spritz bottle and fill with water! I recommend a pinch of salt or a little vegetable glycerin to help keep the essential oils evenly dispersed. Tadaaaa! Another gift giving idea!
