Essential Oils for Grief.
I am already such a huge fan of essential oils and their healing ways. I love how they address body, mind and spirit. We lost an adventurous, kind, and joyful friend this month to an Avalanche. I wanted to make an essential oil blend for his partner, knowing that just smelling these oils or wearing them would be something simple enough that she could manage to do. I had the advantage of knowing that she is very drawn to Frankincense, so I knew that this sacred oil would be part of the blend. Frankincense is also one of the best choices for grief. As I did some further research, I found it very fitting that many of the oils that come up for comfort and support are the tree oils. Both of them were most at home in wild places. I chose atlas cedar, cypress, noble fir, and some bergamot to blend with the frankincense. The result made me feel comforted immediately like I was with family and held. Others who also smelled it had a similar experience. Oh, the plants and their mystical, healing ways. I am forever in their gratitude. Here is the blend if you ever want to make some for yourself or for someone you know that could use it. These oils are meant to be inhaled, diffused, or diluted with a carrier oil. Or put a drop on a pillow case, shirt sleeve, or tissue. 10 drops frankincense, 5 drops atlas cedar, 5 drops cypress, 5 drops bergamot and 2 drops noble fir.
