By this time every winter, Minnesotans are ready to be done. Enough snow, enough cold, enough darkness. We’re ready for spring and sunshine and green things (oh my!). But this winter has been especially rough, and just when we think we hear the birds chirping we get hit with another couple inches of snow. Snow which then has to be shoveled and put...somewhere? We’re running out of places to PUT the snow this year.
But enough about us. This is about YOU and our shared vision of spring. That’s why we’re giving you our two most favorite diffuser blends to help you through the last few weeks of winter. Pop these into your diffuser and let these fresh scents transport you.
This simple blend just smells clean and uplifting. The Lemon and Grapefruit are energizing and light, while the Geranium is balancing and can help ease stress and anxiety. The perfect combination to help you want to tackle that to-do list. Sub in Basil for the Geranium and add to water in a mister bottle for a freshening air and surface spray.
GARDEN FRESH4 drops Rosemary essential oil
3 drops Cedarwood essential oil
2 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil
1 drop Vetiver essential oil
Breathing in this scent transports us straight into the spring garden, digging in the fresh earth with dirt under our nails and the sun on our backs. Cedarwood and Vetiver are grounding, calming, and can help combat negativity while Ylang Ylang can help with stress. Rosemary is refreshing and invigorating and lends this blend its herbaceous vibe.
Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Hear those morning birds chirping. Now open your eyes. Is it spring yet? Nope, not for us either. But the next few weeks don’t seem as daunting anymore, do they?
