Uplift, Invigorate, and Energize Your Mind and Body With Our Grapefruit Spearmint Blend
We've just released a line of essential oil blends formulated to support positive mental and emotional health, and right now, we're featuring a different blend on the Blog each day. So today's post is all about our Grapefruit Spearmint blend. While this blend has long been popular in our deodorants, it also has aromatherapeutic benefits and can be used to uplift, invigorate, and energize the mind and body.* That's why it is also now available in full strength and in a pre-diluted roll on.
The Grapefruit Spearmint blend can help balance two of the energy centers- or chakras- within the body. Located in various parts of the body, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, chakras can be thought of as "energy points or channels that give life and vitality" When the energy in a particular chakra is blocked, it can surface as a physical and/or emotional issue. However, when you "open" the chakra and bring its energy back into balance, the physical and emotional issues can dissipate more easily. Essential oils emanate different vibrational frequencies, just as the chakras do. So when an oil matches the natural frequency of a chakra, it "tunes" it when it's out of balance, helping to bring harmony to the body.
Grapefruit essential oil has a sweet, citrusy aroma that is uplifting, energizing, and invigorating without being overpowering. It is also a wonderful oil for helping to clear mental chatter and ease feelings of tension. In addition, grapefruit essential oil can help balance the third, or solar plexus, chakra. The solar plexus chakra relates to your sense of identity. When this chakra is balanced, you tend to feel comfortable in your own skin and confident without being arrogant. However, imbalances can lead to low self-esteem or- the opposite- arrogance. You may also experience nervousness or a feeling of being stressed out.
While it shares many of the same properties as peppermint essential oil, spearmint oil has significantly less menthol than peppermint, so it has a much more subtle aroma. Like grapefruit oil, spearmint is very invigorating, can help ease tension, and is useful for helping you to move toward "fresh" ideas.
Spearmint essential oil also helps to balance the solar plexus and throat chakras. The throat chakra influences all modes of communication and is responsible for our ability to express our thoughts, feelings, and desires. It influences not only the ways we express ourselves but also our ability to listen to others. Having an open throat chakra can allow you to be expressive, honest, and patient as well as a good listener.
With its energizing and invigorating properties, this blend is ideal for those times when you need a natural pick-me-up. Add a few drops of the full strength formula to your diffuser, or roll the roll on into your hands and rub together any time you need a boost of energy.
Caution: Essential oils are highly concentrated and should be diluted with a carrier oil before applying them on the skin. Test on a small area, and wait at least 24 hours before applying to larger areas of the body.
