I just made a fresh batch of my Daily Normal Stress Perfume to take with me to the hospital tomorrow and I thought this would be a great time to share my recipe! This works for me to help support my emotional health and Lord knows I need it!
- 30 drops Lavender
- 20 drops of Valor
- 10 drops of Orange
- 10 drops of Release
- 8 drops of Idaho Blue Spruce
- 5 drops of Copaiba
- 5 drops of Frankincense
- 3 drops of Vitamin E
- 7 ml of a carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil (just over 1 tsp)
It really is a very simple recipe to make and it smells amazing too! What more can you want than to have a perfume that makes you feel better?
Storing and Using the Calming Blend
It's always best to store essential oils in a tinted bottle to protect it from light. Always try to keep essential oils out of direct sunlight and away from heat. I always recommend glass when using essential oils because they can degrade plastic over time (especially citrus).
For this recipe, my favorite application is with a roll-on style perfume bottle because with this blend the carrier oil is not diluted and it could clog a traditional perfume bottle's spray nozzle.

I apply this to my wrists, behind my ears, and on my chest. It's perfect for carrying in your purse.
I also have a diffuser necklace that I wear daily which helps support my mood. It's simples-- it's a locket which opens and there is a terra cotta center. You simple add 2-3 drops of whatever essential oil you want onto the terra cotta, close it and you're ready to go. You have your own personal diffuser hanging from your neck! It works great for using essential oils for mood.
