I use essential oils for everything from energizing to de-stressing to getting into a romantic mood. And one of my favorite things to do is coming up with my own custom blends. My current obsession is a blend I’ve come up with that I call my Blissfully Radiant Blend. It has a citrus-based, uplifting scent that just puts me in a happy mood and I love it so much, I wanted to share it! As far as essential oil brands go, I don’t believe you need to use any specific brand, as long as it is high quality and preferably organic. Some of my favorite essential oil brands to use are Young Living if you want the most premium quality, but Auracacia is great too and not as pricey.
Here are the oils I mix to make this blend:
Lemon essential oil has a bright and joyful aroma. It is antibacterial and antifungal properties, which make it revitalizing and uplifting.
Vanilla essential oil has antioxidant, aphrodisiac and antidepressant properties.
Neroli essential oil is an essential oil from a citrus fruit. Because of this fact, most of its medicinal properties match those of other citrus essential oils. It has a calming and relaxing scent that makes it great for alleviating anxiety. It has aphrodisiac qualities as well.
Jasmine essential oil has a strong, sweet and romantic fragrance. The jasmine flower is often associated with romance and love. Jasmine essential oil is known to relieve depression, muscle spasms and has an overall tranquilizing effect.
