Your experiences with an essential oil may differ from any one else’s experiences.

Please review safety information for any essential oils you use in order to insure that your experiences with aromatherapy are good ones.
This Famous Essential Oil Recipe is adapted from Gabriel Mojay and comes from his book Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit (1997). I have described it as “adapted” because the original recipe uses only common names of the designated oils and doesn’t give the further specifications that I’ve made here for clarity. Gabriel’s creative use of aromatherapy to address very specific emotional and behavioral situations reflects his understanding of the subtle energetic effects of essential oils as viewed from the perspective of the Five Element Theory of Classical Chinese Medicine.
This essential oil recipe is one that he describes as being helpful for people who are feeling “frustrated and irritable”. To me, that sounds like a state of being that we’re all going to experience at one time or another so this recipe should be of interest to many of our readers. The essential oils in this recipe have been claimed by aromatherapists to have calming and gently uplifting effects that may be helpful for shifting mood in times of stress. If you try this recipe, let us know what you think. Did you like the aroma? Did it help shift you into a better mood?
For use on the body, this essential oil blend must first be diluted in vegetable oil or jojoba oil. Gabriel notes that the formula below shows the number of drops of essential oil to be used per tablespoon of vegetable oil. A full body massage generally requires about 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, so you should triple the number of drops below to add to three tablespoons of vegetable oil. You could also use this blend for inhalation: a drop or 2 on the pad of an aroma locket or 3 or 4 drops on the pad of a fan diffuser or in a personal inhaler will be plenty.
Safety and Mixing Tips – Mix the required number of essential oils only (not the vegetable oil) together in a small container that you can cover tightly, swirl the bottle gently to mix the essential oils and let the mixture sit (covered) for a few minutes before adding it to the specified amount of vegetable oil. Keep in a tightly capped bottle until you are ready to rub on; avoid getting any of the mixture in the eyes, on mucous membranes, or sensitive or damages tissues.
