It's safe to say the year of 2020 has been out of the ordinary. Whether you were effected minimally or dramatically, in some way it has changed our day to day routines. We know the world is eager to move into 2021 with the hopes it will pave a different and exciting path. We are excited to say a bitter sweet goodbye to the year that has been.
A New Year can signify different things to a lot of people, and it can be easy to think "the date of the year is just changing and I'm carrying the same frustrations into it" but to us, we are letting go of any negative energy we may have collected in the frustrating times.
Below are essential oils which can help clear negative energies and help your mind, body & soul reset for a beautiful New Year.
Peppermint Essential Oil
The beautiful, fresh and invigorating aroma of Peppermint essential oil is uplifting and therapeutic for the mind and body. When used in a diffuser on it's own or in a blend it is uplifting and energising helping clear a heavy head or heavy space in your home.
The slightly sharp yet citrusy and sweet aroma of Bergamot essential oil is soothing and allows us the space to let our troubles drift away. Bergamot is found to help support the nervous system during times of anger, stress and grief. It can help encourage good communication to help lift any unwanted burdens of the year just been.
Ylang Ylang essential oil promotes feelings of comfort and joy. It simultaneously reduces heart rate, improves your mood and promotes relaxation. Inhaling Ylang Ylang can help release negative emotions, reducing stress and acting as a natural anxiety and depression remedy.
The sweet and herbaceous scent of Basil essential oil is a gift to melancholic spirits and fatigued minds. This warming essential oil clarifies thoughts during times of indecision and supports us when too much stress has caused mental and spiritual exhaustion. A great addition to your diffuser blends.
Buddha Wood is a deeply spiritual oil that guides us to the wisdom of the heavens and the deep, timeless knowledge of the soul. It is an invaluable essential oil to diffuse when meditation, reflecting and soul searching.
This essential oil may help quell feelings of irritation, anger and anxiety. The sweet aroma will impart a sense of calm while providing an uplifting cleanse. Feel lighter and focused with Mandarin lifting heavy thoughts from your mind.
How you choose to use these essential oils to clear negative energy from your mind or space is completely in your control. You can diffuse, apply topically or create daily rituals to have an on-going effect. While clearing negative energies isn't an easy fix, it is something you can incorporate into your routine or during your meditative practices as a helping hand.
