A Hug In A Bottle to Uplift and Inspire You

Saskia JenningsCaregiver Resources2 Comments

It’s been one of those days. Your presentation at work didn’t go as hoped, traffic was terrible, your mom’s appointment at the Doctor got postponed, it’s raining, your to-do list is 10 pages long, and someone ate the last of the leftover takeout you were planning on for dinner. All you want to do is crawl into bed with a blanket over your head and call it a day.

We all have days that feel overwhelming, hard, sad, or exhausting. Whether you’re feeling lost, overwhelmed, lonely, or homesick, the pure, gentle aroma of essential oils can help you reset, reflect, and spiritually rejuvenate. Here are a few of our favorite essential oils for when you’re down in the dumps.

Valor Essential OilValor®: A hug for courage

It’s easy to identify the things we want to change about our lives, but it’s much harder to have the courage to actually take action. Fear of obstacles, embarrassment, and failure can leave us in a constant state of analysis paralysis. When you find yourself with a high-stakes day on the horizon, the aroma of Valor essential oil blend can help invite feelings of courage and strength.

Usage tip: Establish a daily practice of reciting self-affirmations in the mirror while inhaling this grounding blend to promote feelings of self-love and confidence.

Release essential oil blendRelease™: A hug for liberation

As we go about our day, we pick up emotional baggage—a hurtful comment, a negative thought, a troubling news article—and after a while it can start to build up and weigh us down. It’s critical that we take time each day to unload and free ourselves. The balancing aroma of Release essential oil blend can help you let go of negativity and lighten your spirit.

Usage tip: During a difficult conversation with a family member or loved one, diffuse this blend to help you stay open-minded and positive.

Present Time essential oilPresent Time™: A hug for gratitude

It’s easy to find yourself focusing so much on the regret of yesterday and the anticipation of tomorrow that you forget about the gift and beauty of today. Diffuse Present Time and practice mindful meditation to help yourself embrace and celebrate the present moment. Let its aroma remind you to slow down and notice life’s little joys—the mesmerizing beauty of raindrops streaming slowly down a windowpane, the sound of birds singing in the morning. There is beauty and wonder all around if you just take the time to look for it.

Usage tip: Diffuse this blend while tackling a mundane chore like laundry or dusting to help you stay mindful and grateful even during less-pleasant tasks.
