Memorial Day marks the unofficial start to summer for those in the United States. Much more importantly, it is a special day to commemorate the brave men and women in the military that have died during the performance of their duties.
Memorial Day Remembrance Blend
The following blend can be diffused as you reflect on the meaning of the holiday and the loved ones that you are in remembrance of. The choice of citrus oils are intended to uplift the spirits and celebrate the warmer temperatures. The inclusion of Rose Essential Oil/Otto in this blend is intended to help aid grief and bring comfort. I've included Patchouli as that is a favorite of mine in remembrance blends as it is grounding. It's earthiness also helps to make this a blend that both men and women can benefit from. Sandalwood Essential Oil or Vetiver Essential Oil could also be used in place of Patchouli Essential Oil.
- 1-2 drops Rose Essential Oil/Otto
- 5 drops Patchouli Essential Oil
- 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.
