5 Essential Oils, Many Blends

by Jade Shutes

I was blessed to receive 5 essential oils from a new company recently. As I opened the package and began reviewing (experiencing) these new essential oils, I was first struck by the energetic clarity and vibrancy of these essential oils. They have a presence that is quite beautiful. I know the company can supply GC/MS reports on each of these oils yet most important to me was their energetic vibration, so to speak. The chemistry can come later.

The five essential oils I received include:

Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi)


Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)


Frankincense (Boswellia frereana)


Ylang ylang extra (Cananga odorata)


and Ginger (Zingiber officinale)


As I sat with these 5 essential oils I also realized how awesome it is that I could create many blends from just 5 different essential oils. So I went about and created a few for my family to use over the next week to truly explore the quality and energetics of these gifted essential oils.
