Let’s get really honest today. We all deal with lack of balance, we all need some grounding, and you know we all need some help at times. There was a point in my life where things began to spiral out of control as I juggled my emotional and physical health, my career, and a thousand other things that were like pins pricking me for priority in my life. I had put myself into a detrimental cycle that drove me straight down – overweight, exhausted, and irritable, I had given up control over my womanhood. Something had to be done because I deserved better. It took time…but look at what has blossomed from it – all because I recognized the need for balance! And that is where our focus is today – dōTERRA’s Balance Grounding Essential Oil Blend.
Achieving balance in our lives begins with identifying and addressing those pain points that keep us from advancing. While you may be dealing with physical pain, the pain points in your life usually center on an emotional need or an area that has been neglected. This is precisely why dōTERRA formulated their Balance Grounding Blend – to help us release the emotional blocks and pull ourselves back to center. Specially selected for each’s impressive properties, Balance blends five essential oils into an airy, warm, and woody aroma that is so inviting many people wear it as perfume.
BEHIND THE BLEND
Each oil within the Balance Grounding Blend was carefully chosen by dōTERRA for its amazing properties. Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile essential oils merge together and are then diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil for optimum comfort and emotional balance. Spruce itself was used by Native Americans for its ability to promote health and spiritual wellness, and is still used today for harmonizing the mind and body. When emotions are blocked, Spruce helps our body to find that release and promote a grounding effect. Ho Wood has been known to ease anxious feelings into a whole-body calm as well as increasing spiritual awareness. An ingredient in holy incense, Frankincense has been used anciently to enhance one’s personal connection and communication with the creator. “Frankie,” as we call it for short, has a balancing and grounding effect on our emotions and can help us to focus and release those pain points that are plaguing our overall wellness. The two Blues in the blend – Blue Tansy and Blue Chamomile – give the oil its characteristic soft blue tint, and are known for easing anxious feelings. Blue Tansy can help us focus on anger and release those blocks, returning feelings of self-control to our core, while Blue Chamomile calms our nerves. Finally, Fractionated Coconut Oil dilutes the blend so that it doesn’t overpower, and it can be diluted even more with any carrier oil for a personal scent or to avoid skin sensitivity. Overall, this blend has amazing properties to balance our emotions and promote tranquility and harmony in our bodies and minds.
DAILY ESSENTIAL OIL USE
Balance can be an oil in your daily repertoire if you are in need of some grounding. This is true for myself and many women I know, and it is very simple to incorporate it even into the busiest lives. It is most effective when applied directly to the bottoms of your feet, where the pores are bigger and pull the oils into your body. You can also deeply inhale the aroma either straight from the bottle or after rubbing a drop or two between your palms.
Looking for some peace throughout your day? Try wearing it as a perfume or cologne. Applied to your pulse points, especially the wrists and neck, the scent finds a happy medium as a unisex scent as either a perfume or a cologne. My husband LOVES the woody and masculine fragrance, and it helps to calm the people around him as well (namely, ME!). He applies it daily as a cologne, and it is also part of my morning routine on the bottoms of my feet. Diffusing this scent can also promote whole body relaxation for an entire room… or a car full of people! It may revolutionize your next road trip, or even prep you for keeping your calm during a trip to the bank or the grocery store. And one more tip – try applying it on your feet before bed at night while meditating on positive thoughts. It can help to promote restful sleep and peaceful dreams. No matter how you opt to use it, Balance can evoke tranquility and balance in your everyday life.
YOGA & BALANCE
It should come as no surprise that Balance Grounding Blend is a favorite among yoga practitioners and teachers. Applied to pulse points, between the eyebrows on your forehead, or diffused in the room, Balance can amplify your meditation and yoga practice, helping you to harmonize your mind and body while focusing on those pain points and releasing the block. Looking for an overall effect? Try making a yoga mat spray!

BALANCE & SERENITY: ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND POWER COMBO
Now I’m going to let you in on a little secret. dōTERRA produces a number of blends of essential oils, but many times we don’t think of combining the blends. Layering the oils creates an amazing effect in the body that can do dual duty in promoting certain effects. If you find that you need more than just grounding, that you need a heavy dose of calming before you can even think about grounding, try layering dōTERRA Serenity Calming Blend with the Balance. You can apply one oil directly on top of the other, but you may have to experiment to see which works the best as the bottom and top layers. Another hint that works for some people is to apply Balance to certain pulse points and Serenity to the others. A magic spot for some women is the décolletage, which enables them to breathe the aroma deeply throughout the day. Diffuser jewelry also works well with these two blends, makes a great fashion statement, and enables you to talk about the oils because you know people will notice the unique style!
