We Could All Use a Little More Peace & Calm
Posted by Jennifer Triassi, yoga instructor at Willow Tree
Peace & Calming is one of Young Living’s most popular essential oil blends, made up of tangerine, orange, ylang ylang, patchouli, and blue tansy!
And it’s one of the most popular oils in my home too!
My favorite way to use Peace & Calming is to diffuse it while I’m sleeping. The first time I diffused it, I was amazed at how well-rested I felt the next morning! I woke up lying on my back, telling me that after I fell asleep there, I didn’t “toss and turn” in my chronic sort of way. Plus, I felt more clear-headed and “awake” than I had in the last few “mommy years.” Sadly, my norm had evolved into some sort of zombie-like sleep-walking to and fro checking on little ones, getting some “juice” (aka flavored water), letting the dogs out, etc.
Added bonus, I immediately noticed that I didn’t feel any tension in my jaw. As my dentist reminds me at every appointment, I am a chronic teeth grinder, and the wear and tear on my teeth is so significant that it always begs the question, “Do you have headaches or jaw pain when you wake up?” Truthfully, I never thought so, but after using Peace & Calming, I noticed a difference in how I felt. So, for right now, I’m holding off on the sexy night guard he’s threatened!
For these reasons alone, Peace & Calming is always “stocked” at my house.
How to use Peace & Calming:
