As the mother of a busy toddler I am always turning to my uplifting and joyful essential oil blends to get me through the week. One of my favorites is a doTERRA product called Elevation. This blend is a go to for days where my mind is wandering into negative self talk and my body feels heavy. After a few drops across my chest and on my spine I seem to feel as if a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I also tend to approach future goals with much more vigor than before I applied the blend. Osmanthus essential oil, known as Osmanthus fragrance in the botanical world, is an incredibly precious and powerful product. It is believed to remove any and all nervous tension and increase feelings of pleasure and calm. Osmanthus is also believed to bring new plans and experiences to the life of those who wear this floral scent. Therefore, by using this particular blend I am opening my mind to future endeavors that may have previously seemed out of reach. The essential oil also helps to balance hormones by decreasing stress and fatigue. The Osmanthus plant is native to China where it has long been used to create a luscious cup of tea. Drinking the tea helps to improve digestive processes, appetite and skin complexion. The flower is similar in aroma to a Jasmine flower but with the addition scent of honey or dried fruits. Osmanthus is precious due to the high amount of petals required to produce the essential oil. Do not ingest Osmanthus and avoid use if pregnant or nursing. I suggest adding a few drops to your morning face lotion/oil for great looking and smelling skin. Another fabulous way to use this oil would be on the spine during a massage treatment. Come by the spa and check out our blends that contain Osmanthus essential oil like Deep Blue and Elevation, you will leave feeling brand new.
