9 Outrageous Oils To Make Your Life Explode

However, if this is true, then they are some pretty awesome men, because it “supports emotional equilibrium as it soothes and uplifts the heart.” Teddy bears and chocolate usually do that for me, but those are far less potent than this essential oil blend.

Here is one of my favorites especially for blocking irritations of the mouth and lips. Clove is the natural blocking agent used for dental work before humans synthesized it into a chemical compound.

Nothing can trash a great outing with kids like tummy complaints.

Abundance Essential Oil Blend (Oil A Week)

abundance blend stylized

Abundance Blend is a good-stuff magnet. Our thoughts and intentions enhanced by fragrance create a positive environment called the “law of attraction” which basically means you are open to good stuff and good stuff is attracted to you. The shift in our hearts and minds toward a sense of abundance and gratitude rather than scarcity is a powerful working force in our lives. Most people tend to live from a sense of never having enough,…

Forgiveness Blend (Oil A Week)

forgiveness

Forgiveness is one of those oil blends that I would dump all over everyone I could, much as I feel the need to dump Common Sense blend on every passing teenager.

I don’t care what airline you fly on, this kind of baggage costs too much for what its worth.

Trauma Life (Oil A Week)

I carry Trauma Life Blend around in my purse every day. No, I’m not a hysterical person, and I don’t live in a war zone or in eminent danger of any particular kind.
