Lemon: “the light”
When you add lemon essential oil to a blend, it acts as a spark plug that ignites light, electricity, and energy. It can help you when you feel lost, in the darkness, confused and defeated. 1-3 drops in a blend will light the way to help you find yourself and discover what lights you up.
Rosemary: “the circulation mover”
When you add rosemary essential oil to a blend it gives it a boost of oxygen to stimulate circulation and get things moving keeping them from being stuck and sluggish. It promotes memory recall, to help you remember why you are so special and unique. In a world where people are trying to mimic other people, this remind you to be yourself and that you ARE enough.
Orange: “the creative instigator”
