All winter long you’ve been making plans to start or change something and you’ve probably made spring the deadline to take action. This makes perfect sense. Since the beginning of time, spring has been a season for growth and change. Nature in general is bursting with expression. Flowers and trees are exploding with color. This is an ideal time to tap into your personal life force and support your own expansion. In case things are springing slowly for you, here are a handful of essential oils to help things along.
Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea)
A supreme balancing oil. If the winter season knocked you off you’re A-game or had you down in the dumps, use clary sage in an aromatic diffuser blend, face oil or oil-based aftershave.
Coriander (Coriandrum sativum)
Kick that winter stiffness and muscle aches with coriander essential oil. Some believe that coriander has the power to disperse pain and stagnation in the body and to elevate creativity and productivity.
Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi)
Shake off winter depression, stay cool and refreshed with grapefruit in formulations for body/face/beard oils, bath saltsand room sprays.
Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana)
Have you been procrastinating with something in particular this past winter season? Take charge with the help of this Dzpioneer invaderdz. This species of cedar is the first to colonize a previously disrupted or damaged ecosystem. A perfect match for the energy of the season! Mix 20 drops of this empowering oil in a bottle with 1oz of your favorite nut/seed oil and apply it over your heart, lungs, arms and legs.
Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum)
Promotes circulation and acts as a mental stimulant by calming the mind to allow increased focus.
Frankincense (Boswellia frereana)
Species frereana usually has a lemon-like citrus tang to it. Like all types of frankincense it is distilled from the resin and is great for skin and wounds. Spring is a time to experience and accept new things. Heal emotional and physical wounds with this oil and be ready for whatever comes your way!
