Stress, anxiety, overwhelm...all subside when you use Serenity essential oil, specially formulated to ease tension, calm the nervous system, and promote a sense of peace and well-being.
The oils in this blend have been researched, selected, and carefully cultivated according to the high standards set by industry leader, doTERRA.
DoTERRA third-party tests every single batch of every single oil, or oil blend they produce. This is after their rigorous growing, harvesting, and extraction standards have been met. We've come to use exclusively doTERRA in our home and for health purposes because of the obvious quality differences of the oil, and we believe in them so much we now actively promote and distribute their product. You can read more about their superior protocols here.
The best time to use Serenity is when tensions are high, stress is piled on, anxiety occurs, or depression escalates. Think of this oil like a sweet embrace of compassion to allow you to release and allow yourself to settle into peace.
Traditionally, you can use Serenity can be used in three ways. Use these suggestions unless otherwise noted below:
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.
Sensitive - "Neat" means that you can generally apply the oil without any dilution, directly to the skin, although those with sensitive skin should always do a patch test or dilute before use.
Because of the emphasis this oil places on love and peace, I like to apply 1-2 drops over my heart center to balance my emotions. You can also apply it to any reflex points on the feet or hands, to the wrists or neck as perfume, or on the back of the neck, directly under the nose, or any other point you feel drawn to apply. You can even add it to your lotion or deodorant, or your child's bathwater before bed.
Try diffusing the oil throughout the room on stressful days (ideas on how in the application guide link above). You can use with shampoo or conditioner, or just rub a couple drops through your hair. Drop on your child's shirt collar or scarf, dab on a handkerchief, or inhale directly from the bottle. Drop several drops in your homemade cleaning products, place a drop on a cotton ball and place in the car vent for long rides, tie a ribbon with the oils on it to a table fan...you can even add it to the dog's collar to help ease their anxiety too. Place it on your child's pillow to help them relax and sleep more soundly.
A couple things to keep in mind:
We exclusively use doTERRA's oils in our home and have become a distributor now because of how much the potency and quality of these oils has supported our family's health. If you're considering purchasing doTERRA, we'd love for you to support this website by purchasing from us below.
There are several ways to get your hands on Serenity 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.
Making these changes is just one simple step you can make in your efforts to go green.
