To me, one of the most fascinating parts of aromatherapy is considering the plant part used for creating an essential oil. When you compare the therapeutic properties of the oil to what that part of the plant does for the plant as a whole, you will be amazed to find they are very similar.
For example, leaves and grasses. Leaves allow a plant to “breathe” and turn light energy into food. While a majority of essential oils extracted from leaves and grasses (including sprigs and needles) open our breath and support respiration, as well as protecting us from infection.
With the ability to open and expand our breath; leaves and grasses help to calm us, easing anxiety and stress. They are also helpful when you find yourself overthinking a situation, by clearing and calming the mind.
Some of my favorite leaf and grass essential oils are…
- Clary Sage
- Eucalyptus Globulus
- Tea Tree
- Thyme ct. linalol
Here is a diffuser blend that will support your breath: calming, uplifting, and energizing you in return.
The aroma of this diffuser blend is lemony, grassy, herby, and a little bit sweet. It creates a calm and happy atmosphere as well as disinfect and clear the air.
What’s in it…
