Elevation essential oil is a phenomenal home remedy for stress, depression, fear, overwhelm, anxiety, low self-esteem, low motivation and more.
This is one of my FAVORITE essential oils and my favorite tool for a bad mood or overwhelming emotions. Sure, you still need to address what's bringing up these emotions for you. But it's so much easier to do that when you're starting to feel more elevated.
Elevated is really how you feel after using this oil too. I rub a small dab of this over my chest and throat and it lifts my bad moods. It doesn't matter if I'm having a bad day, dealing with hormones, or just woke up grumpy. It makes a real difference in the way I feel. (And when I feel good I can do anything!)
And when I use it on a good day? Wow! I actually need to be careful, because if I'm already in a good mood this blend of oils will get me so elevated I'm not very grounded! (I like to use it with another blend called Balance from the same company to..well, balance things out.)
These uplifting oils stimulate your body's chemistry whether you're just feeling lethargic, depressed, cranky, unsettled or frustrated. The blend includes:
Because of the citrus oils in the Elevation essential oil blend it's important to not use it if you'll be in the sun up to 12 hours after application.
As described, Elevation essential oil is good to use anytime you're not feeling happy. You can use it if you're depressed, angry, overwhelmed, unsettled, anxious, frustrated, or just not in a good mood and you don't know why.
Aromatically - Can be diffused in the air or inhaled directly.
Topically - Can be applied directly to the skin or within a carrier oil, such as coconut oil, for young or sensitive skin. Start with one drop to 1-3 tsp of carrier oil and increase as needed.
NEAT - Neat means that most people can use Elevation topically without needing to dilute it first, although if you have sensitive skin or aren't sure, I'd recommend dilution.
Precautions: All citrus oils, including this one, increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun.
Using a quality diffuser, diffuse Elevation throughout the home during periods of stress or anxiety or on a daily basis. Add a drop to pillowcases before bed for good dreams or add a drop to the shirt collar or through your hair. You can also place a drop on a handkerchief or cotton ball and place in front of a fan, in your car vent on long commutes or even the house vent during periods of stress. And you can add to a wet cloth or sock before using the clothes dryer.
I tend to rub this directly on my chest (over my heart and throat chakra) or to the base of my feet. You can also use it in a bath, during a massage, to the wrists, behind the ears (this tends to be more sensitive for some though), or use as a perfume.
This specific blend and it's careful ratios and rare, potent oils is only found through oh-so-favorite company, doTERRA. We love these oils so much we actively promote them as an affiliate/distributor here on Sustainable Baby Steps.
There are several ways to get your hands on Elevation essential oil: retail, discounted, or wholesale.
But retail sucks.
So we recommend purchasing a discounted or wholesale account (similar to something like Costco) to get the best prices on this or other oils. Which is the best fit for you will depend on your needs.
