    What dilution is right for essential oil massage blends?

    by Andrea Butje on March 27, 2017

    When I make essential oil Massage blends, I usually stick to about a 2% dilution.

    2% Dilution

    • 1 oz (30 ml) — 10 to 12 drops

But Balm of Gilead infused oil can be wonderful for sore muscles and joints, deep tissue pain, and to help reduce inflammation.  […]

    August 08, 2016

We just find different language to describe it. Here are my words for what “being grounded” means: Being very present in our bodies and calm in our minds. Being grounded brings us back to the now, so we’re not wrapped up in thoughts of the past or the future.  […]
