Balance has become a family day-to-day favourite here at 209. Why?
Balance is a grounding blend. I use it when I need to focus, concentrate, calm down which is pretty much every single day. I’m prone to a little bit of manic energy which is handy when running a creative business together with the day-to-day family busy-ness. But for those moment that require a little more quiet and focus, such as when I’m studying, meditating, writing or practicing yoga, I apply and/or inhale Balance. Within minutes I feel a physical warmth gently flow over me. I feel tranquil. Calm. A strong sense of being ‘ready’. I kid you not. The benefits are fast and utterly incredible. I wish I could reach through this screen and put a drop or two on you lol.
Last week was the first week back at school. Term 4. We have been diffusing Balance during the dreaded homework sessions in the afternoon to bring calm, focus and to help extend with their young concentration spans. About 5 drops works a treat and our little home smells glorious.
My sister first tried Balance a few weeks ago. I told her to rub a drop on each temple, each wrist and on the back of her neck. I didn’t tell her what essential oil I was giving her to try. After 5 minutes I asked how she felt and her reply was “Calm. I feel so calm and really relaxed.” She now uses Balance multiple times every single day.
My 12 year old son, William, is also a big fan of Balance. William is a brown belt in Rhee Taekwondo and before his class yesterday he asked me if I had any essential oils with me. Of course I did – I actually carry a little bag around with me of my four favourites – Balance, Elevation, In-Tune and Frankincense. He applied Balance before his class. William had a big day at school and was feeling “distracted”. Again, a drop on each temple, wrist and the back of his neck and he had a fabulous, focused Rhee Taekwondo class.
I felt so proud of William for taking responsibility for his own wellness. By listening to his body and acknowledging where he was emotionally he was able to identify what was up. By embracing the world of essential oils, being open to my constant ramblings about how awesome these little bottles of goodness are, and experimenting with them together, as a family, with our growing collection of brown bottles of natural wellness William was able to identify what essential oil would best suit him right there and then. He helped himself. He was proactive in his own personal wellness. Oh my giddy aunt yes, I surely am one proud mama.
What is Balance made up of that makes it so effective? Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil. The aroma is divine. Spruce is used to bring harmony to the mind and body. Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, and Blue Camomile are what eases sore muscles and joints, promotes circulation and brings harmony to the mind and body. Frankincense supports cellular health and overall well-being. I’ve been known to say, when in doubt choose for Frank.
I’ll be honest. I haven’t used Balance for sore muscles and joints. I use another essential oil blend called Ice Blue for that. Fab for after I do a physically intense yoga session and on the girls after their ballet and competition aerobics practices. My Mum swears by it for her aching shoulder. I could ramble on about the benefits of Ice Blue blend too but will save that for a future post.
For now I’ll leave you to contemplate the remarkable benefits of Balance. If you think you could benefit from this essential oil blend and you’re curious to know more you can leave a comment here or contact me via email email@example.com. I’m happy to share with you what I know.
Enjoy your Sunday my loves. XO
