The essential oil every woman needs


I was in a session with my Naturopath. Yet another run in with burn out, feeling exhausted, over worked and over it. As well as the usual recommendations she had for me - rest, supplements, herbs, diet tweaks, she had something else for me today.

"I've been working with some new essential oils. They're therapeutic grade, the purest in the world, and I've seen the research so I know how good they are. I want you to try this oil. It will help you with your adrenal fatigue, it will ground you, support you mentally and emotionally and support your recovery."

Ok I thought. I'd used essential oils for years. And I was willing to add anything into my wellness kit that would help me feel better.

That was about 6 years ago, just before I left my corporate job and started my own business.

The oil was called Balance - The Grounding Blend from doTERRA. I have been using it consistently since that discussion, and it is one of the primary factors that has influenced my health and wellbeing, and recovery from adrenal fatigue.

When I work with my clients - incredible women with successful careers or businesses - one of the things I see in common is tiredness. In many cases, it's the same adrenal fatigue that I used to deal with, from working too hard, pushing and juggling too many things. For each of these clients, I recommend this oil. For every oils class or wellbeing workshop I teach, it is the oil I say every woman needs (and many men too).

doTERRA’s grounding blend, Balance, promotes tranquility while bringing harmony to the mind and body, and balance to the emotions. The warm, woody aroma creates a sense of calm and well-being. With a blend of Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil it promotes tranquility and relaxation. Spruce was used by Native Americans for health and spiritual reasons and is still used today to bring harmony to the mind and body. Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile can ease anxious feelings, while Frankincense provides a grounding, balancing effect on emotions.

This oil, applied to the bottoms of the feet, pulse points and heart centre during the day, helps ease feelings of anxiety and overwhelm and evokes feelings of balance.

Men love this oil for it's woody aroma and the way it brings calmness and eases their anxiety - especially if they are working too hard. Share it with your partner, diffuse it at home, or put a few drops in your palms and inhale the aroma for an instant grounding and calming effect. It's also an incredible oil for children of all ages who are anxious, over active or have a hard time calming down or sleeping.

I would not be without this oil. It sits on my desk, as well as by my bed for rubbing into the soles of my feet to promote deep sleep, and next to my diffuser in my lounge room.
