Essential Oil Recipe to Experience Peace Through Meditation

In my own Meditation practice I find myself needing to put calmness at the centre of my inward focus.  As a very tightly wound person, I spend most of my life planning, worrying, & making lists.  While I appreciate the organised nature of habitual list-writing, I struggle with stress & worry.

How To Meditate With Essential Oils

When I first began Meditating, it was a desire to relax & let go of stress that lead me to try meditation.  Allowing myself to live under constant Stress had taken its tole on me physically, & I found myself exhausted by all the nightmare daydreaming I was doing by constantly worrying about possible scenarios, or situations out of my control.

It has been nearly 7 years since I first took up Meditation.  The relationship I have with my practice is much different from what it was when I so tentatively began this journey.  Today, I make time for myself to Meditate twice per day.  I have my own space set up where I feel completely comfortable.

Most days, as I am Meditating, I find myself focusing on serene peace, % freedom from my worries.  I'm no longer uncertain in my practice, but rather, I crave this time to concentrate on accepting & relishing myself both inwardly & outwardly.  This allows me to let go of worry and stress.

Essential Oil Meditation Recipe for Peace

To assist in sinking into a deep meditative state in which I am able to descend into tranquility, I like to diffuse gentle & calming Essential Oils.  What follows is my favourite Meditation Essential Oil recipe for achieving peace.

Please note, the following recipe should be mixed into an amber bottle & stored in a dark place at room temperature.  Unlike most of our Essential Oil recipes, these quantities are not meant to be blended directly into your diffuser.

  • 18 drops - Lavender Essential Oil
  • 15 drops - Ho Wood Essential Oil
  • 12 drops - Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
  • 12 drops - Geranium Essential Oil
  • 10 drops - Clary Sage Essential Oil
  • 10 drops - Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
  • 4 drops - Marjoram Essential Oil

Try diffusing this blend, 7-10 drops at a time, during your Meditation.  When you find your mind wandering, or worrying, concentrate on your breathing, & inhale this peaceful blend.

Who is Britten? She's a reticent little beast born in the wilds of Northern Alberta to a foul-mouthed, French-Canadian father & an angry, stiff-upper-lipped mother. Britten is, almost always, wild-haired & poorly dressed. She recently left the beautiful & untamed chill of Canada for the blistering & somewhat oppressive heat of Australia. Her list of pastimes is short & includes reading, writing, petting cats, overeating & alphabetizing things. She's a fan of Windex on Facebook because who doesn't want a streak free shine? She dreams of one day writing a super-awesome novel that affords her & her partner a comfortable lifestyle, a large property, a few horses & the means with which to foster children in need...or just becoming a red panda.

When Britten isn't writing, reading, or organizing things in her home, she can be found cuddling with her boyfriend, arguing about why Rajon Rondo is the best point guard in the history of ever, browsing Gumtree for a future cat or kitten, or contemplating days gone by, the passage of time & how ridiculous it is that humans have yet to evolve enough to grow a third set of teeth.
