Inhale Aromatherapy Intention Blends to Help You Achieve Your New Year Goals!
Inhale Aromatherapy Intention Blends to Help You Achieve Your New Year Goals!

Part Two of Two Articles

Last week, I wrote about setting intentions and achieving goals with aromatherapy. The creation of an aromatherapy intention blend can help a lot in this process and, this week, I am giving you a few examples of aromatherapy intention blends, based on the example goals and intentions discussed in last week’s post. The type of blend maybe dictated by your goal, so I am giving an example of a roll-on aromatherapy blend, an aromatherapy spray, and an essential oil diffision blend. You can adapt each method to fit your own purpose.

Aromatherapy Intention Blend with a Roll-on Product

Roll-on applicators are quick and simple to both make and use. You can use my make-your-own aroma roll-on kit, or create your own from a simple roll-on applicator. A roll-on aromatherapy intention blend allows you to “wear” your blend throughout the day, and invoke your intentions, or put some specific time aside, apply the blend, and focus on your intentions.

Create Aromatherapy Intention Blend

Depending upon the actual intention for your creative goal (see last week’s post for definitions), I suggest some variation of the following blend:

  • 0.5 oz jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)

  • 2 drops basil ct. linalool (Ocimum basilicum ct. linalool) essential oil

  • 1 drop clary sage (Salvia sclarea) essential oil

  • 2 drops lime (Citrus aurantfolia) essential oil

  • 1 drop sweet marjoram (Origanum marjorana) essential oil

Cautions: Avoid use in pregnancy, avoid use with babies and children, and avoid use prior to going out in sunlight. Check with a certified aromatherapist before using essential oils.

Get Healthy Aromatherapy Intention Blend

A popular new year goal is to lose weight. If your intention to achieve this goal is to exercise more, try diffusing the following aromatherapy intention blend before your exercise regime to motivate and inspire you:

  • To create 1 ml of an undiluted essential oil blend to add to an aromatherapy diffuser (consult the manufactuer’s guidelines on use), combine the following essential oils in a glass bottle:

    • 5 drops grapefruit (Citrus x paradisi) essential oil

    • 5 drops cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) essential oil

    • 5 drops rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) essential oil

    • 5 drops cardamon (Elettaria cardamomum) essential oil

    • 6 drops bergamot (Citrus bergamia) essential oil

    • 4 drops frankincense (Boswellia sacra) essential oil

Cautions: Avoid use in pregnancy and avoid use with babies and children. Do not apply directly to the skin. Check with a certified aromatherapist before using essential oils.

It’s All About Me Aromatherapy Intention Blend

It’s all about me – but in a healthy way! This aromatherapy intention blend is about setting time aside just for “me” each day, and relaxing. Find a “safe” place, and spray this blend around yourself before meditating, reading a book, drinking a cup of herbal tea, or just quiet contemplation:

  • 2 oz distilled water (or rose (Rosa x damascena) hydrosol)

  • 10 drops frankincense (Boswellia sacra) essential oil

  • 7 drops sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) essential oil

  • 4 drops rose (Rosa x damascena) essential oil

  • 3 drops geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) essential oil

Cautions: Avoid use with babies and children. Do not spray directly into eyes or ears.
