Essential Oil Stress Management Recipe – FAMOUS AROMATHERAPY RECIPE*

This information on an Essential Oil Stress Management Recipe is provided for educational interest only. Nothing here is intended to make claims for any of our products. Your experiences with an essential oil may differ from any one else’s  experiences.  No information provided here is intended to be used for the diagnosis. treatment or amelioration of any physical or mental illness. Please review safety information for any essential oils you use in order to insure that your experiences with aromatherapy are good ones.

This blend features Clary Sage Essential Oil. We’ve chosen a recipe from Valerie Ann Worwood’s book, The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy (1991). This classic text is still one of our favorites and we especially like the section on how to apply aromatherapy to the management of stress. Worwood offers this recipe for those dealing with what she defines as Level I and Level III stress. There are some simple precautions to observe when using this blend so be sure to read the safety considerations:

This blend, essential oil stress management recipe, can be used “as is” in a diffuser or on an aroma locket that does not allow the essential oils to touch the skin. For use on the skin, dilute the total blend (30 drops) in two ounces of vegetable oil or jojoba oil.

Safety Considerations: Lemon Essential Oil is phototoxic, which means that it will promote severe sun burning if used on the skin prior to exposure to sunlight or tanning lamps. For that reason, this blend, even when diluted, should not be used on the body or in a shower, steam room or sauna less than 12 hours before going into the sun or using tanning lamps.
Because clary sage can amplify the effects of alcohol, pain medication, or sedatives and/or produce unpleasant side effects when
combined with any of these, don’t use this blend by inhalation or application to the body during or for 12 hours before or after the consumption of alcoholic beverages or use of pain medication or sedatives. Do not consume essential oils internally except under the guidance of a properly trained and licensed health care professional.

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.

CLARY SAGE  Essential Oil – 15 drops
(May produce side effects if used in conjunction with alcohol, pain medication or sedatives).
