“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” – M. Beattie
It’s been a tough year, and this season of giving thanks couldn’t be more needed. Fortunately, studies have shown that when we focus on what we are grateful for—instead of the things we are stressed about—we open ourselves up to receiving more of our gifts, and our hearts and minds become more open and free-flowing.
But it’s not always easy to shift into a state of gratitude, which is where we come in! Created specifically to help you embrace the blessings in your life, Gratitude™ essential oil by Young Living has been known to gently encourage the release of sorrow, anger, obsession, and resentment while its uplifting aroma invites a feeling of emotional and spiritual progress.
What’s In the Blend?
Gratitude is made with nine single essential oils that together help quiet down, soothe, and elevate the mind while bringing relaxation to the body. Here’s what’s in it, and what each oil adds to the blend:
Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea) is known to soothe and rejuvenate the body and mind.
Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) is high in sesquiterpenes, which helps uplift the spirit.
Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) may support healthy assimilation of thoughts, important when making choices and moving forward with plans.
Myrhh (Commiphora myrrha) is a powerful spiritual oil that was used since Biblical times.
Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) helps restore confidence and equilibrium.
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) is relaxing to the mind and body.
Northern Lights Black Spruce (Picea mariana), grounding yet uplifting, inspires us to reach higher and live our potentiality.
Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanioides) is a grounding oil and is high in sesquiterpenes.
Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens), soft and supportive, brings balance to the receptive, female, and creative in us.
How to Use It:
- Dilute 50:50 (one part essential oil: one part of vegetable oil).
- Apply 2-4 drops on the crown of head, over the heart, ears, wrists, neck, or feet.
- Add 2-4 drops to bath water.
