You know at 21 Drops we believe that sharing is caring, so we decided to do a weekly roundup of some of the Q’s & A’s to help you be your best self!


First up: Carrier oils and anxiety


Carrier Oils + Anxiety


Question: Do you use any carrier oils in your blends? Or do the vials contain only
essential oils? I have some nut allergies, so I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t have a problem.

Answer: Because essential oils should never be applied directly to the skin, all of our blends contain a synergy of 3-5 essential oils diluted in a 100% organic jojoba carrier oil. There are no other oils in our blends, so if you have nut allergies, there should not be an issue.

Question: I have anxiety when I ride the subway. What blend would your recommend? I checked out De-Stress, Calm and Equalize. They seem similar, what do you think?

Answer: I’d say your choice depends on your level of anxiety. If you feel extremely anxious, with a racing heart, muscle tension, and an overactive mind, then I’d recommend De-Stress. If you just get a bit uncomfortable and need to be calmed, I’d choose CalmEqualize is more about neutralizing the mind and has a soothing effect.
