Happy Aromatic New Year!
I always love diffusing essential oils and burning incense around the turn of the year. It helps remind me of all the beauty I’ve experienced over the past 12 months, and all that is to come over the next 12.
One way to help yourself have an amazing 2020 is setting intentions to do fun things.
Some people think of this as New Year’s resolutions. You can also just think of it as a fun to-do list—small changes that help you have more fun every day, and give you things to look forward to year round. You can use Aromatherapy for setting intentions to help you get inspired and stay resolved, too.
There are no specific essential oils for New Year’s resolutions. Using Aromatherapy for setting intentions is more about choosing oils that inspire you, offer mental focus and energy, and support your confidence.
One good way to go about it is to choose an essential oil that you don’t commonly use. Something you love, but don’t seem to find yourself reaching for as often as some others. You can make a blend with this oil, or diffuse it alone, as you’re setting intentions for the New Year.
Then make a roll-on blend with this oil. Keep it with you during the New Year and use it to remind yourself of your intentions and offer confidence. Here’s a suggestion for your blend . . .
Keep Your Resolution Aromatherapy Roll-On
- 10 ml jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
- 6 drops Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis)
- 4 drops Your New Year’s Oil
I chose Sweet Orange because it blends so “sweetly” with many different essential oils. And it’s gentle on skin, so if your chosen oil is a little spicy or might cause sensitivity, the Sweet Orange can help to balance that. Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) would also be a beautiful choice.
Now that you can use Aromatherapy for setting intentions, what will your goals be?
Here are some ideas! You can resolve to . . .
- Clean your kitchen with Lemon every week!
- Start a blog about how to use essential oils.
- Build up your collection of conifer essential oils.
- Make your own skin care products with natural butters and oils.
- Start a small business selling natural perfumes.
- Educate yourself about using essential oils well—that means safely and effectively—so you can answer people’s questions, help them live more naturally, and even change your life.
