Please don’t worry, I’m not part of any oily MLMs, I buy my oils from different shops and websites, and I use various brands.
I have been a fan of essential oils since the 90s but it’s only recently that I’ve stepped up my game and started to make roller blends. If you haven’t guessed already, I never had FOMO.
I’d been curious for a while and back in May, I stumbled over an Instagram post regarding a “Roller workshop” at a reasonable price in my local vicinity. So I thought “well why the heck not” and booked myself in. At the time of booking, and for the first 10 minutes of the workshop, it wasn’t obvious (to me at least) that it was a sales pitch for an EO MLM. One of my talents is that I can play it dumb when needed, so I did. To be honest, none of the participants was under any obligation to buy or sign up for anything, that credit has to be stated.
I did find it interesting, the two ladies in charge seemed to know their way around blends and uses, and none of them were pushy for us to spend hundreds of dollars there and then.
I made three rollers that evening (and I took a picture of different blends with my mobile phone for future reference) which I named Peace, Calm and Breathe. Simply because they had stickers with those words that seemed to fit the purpose of the blends. You have got to keep it simple, real and basic.
The one named Calm works wonders for my insomnia and I use Breathe during meditation. Peace is my go-to when I am working from home and have to sign on to a digital meeting. Not a big fan of digital meetings I must admit.
A few days later I went to one of our local health stores that sells essential oils and bought a few more. As you do. The blend I did that day doesn’t have a name, just the feminine symbol drawn on the lid, the hope is that it will help me through menopause. So far it has increased my hot flushes, or maybe those are due to the heatwaves sweeping Europe this summer.
I have since made a calming and focusing roller for my son and his ADHD, unfortunately, I didn’t write down which oils I used. Hopefully, I can put that down as a rookie mistake. I have also made a Release blend and a Digestive Aid blend. I did a blend for Travel Sickness before I went on holiday, it didn’t do much but I have since then used it as a bug and mosquito repellent, so it’s still a win.
Anyway, are you into essential oils and blends? Feel free to give me your best blend suggestions. I love to learn more.
