Using Essential Oils in Your Self Care Routine
Essential oils and self care are one of the best pairs together and are weaved together so seamlessly. Not only have essential oils been proven time and time again to promote health and wellness in a variety of ways, but it is one of the easiest ways to incorporate self care into your daily routine.
I’ve been on the hunt for a sustainable, high quality essential oils that were going to do what I needed to do in my own practice. When I was burned out, I wanted to experience the true benefits of the essential oil, not a whole bunch of preservatives and additives.
When I first discovered Rocky Mountain Oils, I had found the match that I was searching for. After starting with their lemongrass in my bodywork practice, I noticed the immediate benefits.
Lemongrass is one of the best essential oils that will help to relax tense, stiff muscles. Even just putting a few drops into your favorite carrier oil will help to ease built up tension when rubbed into a sore muscle.
Sometimes with heavily mixed essential oils, you’ll notice that they don’t dissolve in a diffuser at an even pace. Usually you’ll notice that they have a powerful, strong scent for the first 10-15 minutes and dwindle down noticeably.
Rocky Mountain Oils are completely organic, they’re ethically sourced, and they’re thoroughly researched to make sure that your essential oils are going to give you the benefits you’re expecting out of each of them.
For today’s post, I’m going over the top three oil blends that are perfect for adding a hint of self care without even having to put extra time, energy, and effort into adding them!
With each oil, we’ll dive into what they’re good for, who can benefit from using them, and most of all, how they can be integrated into your self care routine!
The Aligning Blend has become one of my favorites to use on days where I just feel all over the place. Days where I just feel like I can’t catch up. This blend is calm in a bottle and instantly centers my emotions. Even just a quick inhalation from the bottle on my desk brings about peace and relaxation.
Aligning is also my go-to when I need help building my courage, confidence, and self-esteem. I carried my bottle with me on a tough day where I just was feeling the extra push of social anxiety and had to venture out.
Rosewood, Spruce, Frankincense, and Blue Tansy in a base of 75% Fractionated Coconut Oil is what you’ll get in Aligning. Rocky Mountain Oils have one of the longest lasting fractionated coconut oil that they research and carry. And no coconut smell to mix into your blends, hooray!
If you’re looking for calming support in a bottle, the Aligning Blend is one to try!
I can’t say enough good things about the Tranquility Blend. My goodness, this blend is not your Grandma’s Tranquility blends that I’ve experienced before. This little bottle is powerful in it’s soothing qualities, and RMO wasn’t kidding when they marked this as a sleep aid blend.
In this amazingly unique blend, there’s Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, Lime, Blue Tansy, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, and Citronella essential oils.
I put on this blend in my diffuser before my evening meditation and was completely floored at how effective it was at just soothing my thoughts, relaxing my shoulders after a long day, and so on. This blend really helped to provide a deeper meditation session with little “fidget time,” which I’m notorious for.

And last, but certainly not least, one of my daily blends that are always running in the background on the diffuser is the Fortify blend. This blend is an earthy scent that is as much balancing as it is energizing.
In this herby-earthy blend, RMO crafted together Frankincense, Juniper Berry, Nutmeg, Holy Basil, Ravintsara, Rosemary, Oregano, Ginger Root, Blue Tansy, Black Cumin, Clove Bud, and Hyssop in a base of 66% Fractionated Coconut Oil. This blend has a nice clean scent that meshes well for daily use and doesn’t overpower the room.
Just having this blend run throughout the day helps to clear out any mental blocks that I may have and help to give me a boost of motivation by encouraging me to relax and take a few breaths.
Replenishment & Use
Even with daily/heavy use, I find that I only have to replenish these blends every 5-6 months or so.
Since each drop are packed with the thousands of plants, you’re getting a field of rosemary rather than just a rosemary bush, for example.
A few drops into a small diffuser can run for 6+ hours and the scent and benefits are just the same as it was when you first turned on the diffuser.
