I discovered essential oil blends a short while ago and am now addicted! I find them so helpful – for lifting my mood, calming me down, supporting focus, clearing my sinuses, evoking the seasons and special times of the year – any time really. I’ve discovered some great sites that have lovely essential oils blends which I love experimenting with. I’ve bought over 40 oils and a special case to carry them in which you can see here. I have so much fun trying out blends and creating new ones. Here are some of the best blends I’ve discovered so far – for every occasion. For a lovely starter set of 16 oils check out our gift list.
