While the anniversary of 9/11 joins us together, it also is a day that can impact each one of us differently. I can't even begin to imagine the intense and overwhelming range of emotions that survivors, families/friends of victims are experiencing. My heart and prayers go out to everyone that is directly affected by 9/11.
9/11 Remembrance Blend
The following blend can be diffused as you reflect on the day. The choice of citrus oils are intended to uplift the spirits. The inclusion of Rose Essential Oil/Otto in this blend is intended to help aid grief and bring comfort. I've included Patchouli as it is grounding and is a more commonly available oil. It's earthiness also helps to make this a blend that both men and women can benefit from. Sandalwood Essential Oil, Vetiver Essential Oil, Frankincense Essential Oil or Spikenard Essential Oil can be used in place of Patchouli Essential Oil. If using Spikenard, you may want to reduce the number of drops used to 1-3.
- 1-3 drops Rose Essential Oil/Otto
- 5 drops Patchouli Essential Oil (or alternatives noted above).
- 8 drops Sweet Orange Essential Oil
- 7 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
(13 drops total of Sweet Orange can be used if you don't have Grapefruit on hand)
Combine all oils in a clean glass bottle and diffuse as you would other essential oil blends as you reflect, pray or meditate.
