Whether you live in a congested urban setting or have greenery sprawling around you in a beautiful rural setting, it is important that you learn how to use natural solutions for your health and wellness. While those in the country certainly have some advantages when it comes to accessing the healing powers of plants, city dwellers can use essential oils to bring those same benefits into their own lives.

Summer is an excellent time to go camping, but it is not always possible for people to go to the great outdoors. However, you can bring the fresh scent of the woods into your personal space with the aromatic forest blend. A combination of black spruce, douglas fir, and sandalwood, the portable diffuser can be taken with you on the road during any summer travels.

Experience greater clarity and feel more grounded by using this blend. Each of the oils has special benefits, which are enhanced by the synergistic composition of the blend. For instance, spruce is sometimes used to enhance meditation sessions while sandalwood can be used to treat anxiety and nervous tension.

Douglas fir contains terpenes and other components that are interesting to note. In addition to the woodsy ones to be expected, this oil contains beta-Pinene, which is generally found in citrus. This brings an invigorating and refreshing experience often associated with citrus, coupled with the grounding effects of wood-based oils. 1

Mountain Blend

Another offering from the Feel Nature line, the mountain blend contains juniper leaf, peppermint and scotch pine. The result is a fragrant oil that will make you feel like you are taking a high mountain hike.

Juniper oil is a natural stimulant that can stave off fatigue and relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression.2 If you are having trouble getting your summer into gear, this essential oil will get your nervous system on the right track.

Peppermint essential oil can also boost your energy while providing you with respiratory benefits associated with breathing fresh mountain air. Likewise, it can be used to reduce symptoms of seasonal allergies, allowing you to enjoy time outdoors this year. 3

The third component of the mountain blend is pine, which will immediately bring fresh pine needles and the stimulating effects of inhaling the natural beauty. Additionally, this oil can target aches and pains that might prevent you from moving freely this summer.

If you can’t go to the mountains this year, use this blend to connect with the serenity associated with being so close to the earth. Try it first thing in the morning to get your day off to a good start, or before a big outdoor event to ensure you have the vim and vigor to enjoy the fireworks, campfire or whatever else your group has brewing!

Of course, you need more for the summer than to imagine you are in a distant location. The Feel the Way You Want blends allow you to do just that. Our sleepy blend is the perfect choice to help you wind down and get some rest after a day full of summer fun.

The three essential oils in this blend are all well known as relaxation and sleep aids. Chamomile, kava, and lavender are carefully blended to enhance the nature of each. In addition to relaxation, this blend can help to relieve aches and pains sometimes associated with insomnia.
