Ask Cary: Conflicting Blends + Depression

August 15th, 2014

We get all kinds of questions about essential oil therapy, and Cary makes sure to answer each and every one of them. Recently, we realized that those answers were only going to the person who asked the question. You know that 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!

 

This week’s topics: Conflicting Blends + Depression

Question: I love the Invigorate blend and use it every day! Can I use stimulating blends (like Invigorate) and the Sleep blend without any conflicts?

Answer: I encourage people to layer our blends! You can absolutely use conflicting blends in the same day, I just suggest waiting a few hours in between. To be safe, I would avoid using any stimulating blends at least two hours before bedtime.

 

Question: Lately I’ve been feeling depressed. Can essential oils help?

Answer: Essential oils can be an amazing, natural way to fight depression. I would recommend our Uplift, Carry On and Will Power blends. Uplift manages the blues, buoys your down spirit and brightens your outlook. Carry On soothes heartbreak, eases shock and grief and allows you to move on. Will Power increases your determination and drive while motivating you into action. These three blends will help get your mind to a better place.
