Get Inspired to Cut the Clutter

Are you in need of some motivation to organize your work space?  Behold January’s essential oil blend: Cut the Clutter!

It's that time of year when we have a natural energy for getting rid of things that no longer serve a purpose in our lives or classrooms.  The problem is, there's only so many hours in the day and the days after winter break seem to take all our motivation.  So, I created a diffuser blend to help us find our motivation and get the job done!

Get Inspired to Cut the Clutter with this essential oil diffuser blend

Here’s why I chose each oil:

This gives the blend a subtle citrus and herb smell.  It promotes a positive outlook by heightening awareness and helping the person move from an obstructed mind to one that is flowing.  So it’s perfect for helping us clear the clutter.  

The original blend included lemon and lime, but after experimenting with a few different options, I liked bergamot in place of those.  Unlike the other citrus oils, Bergamot is both uplifting and calming.  It helps clear the mental clutter by helping us move from a mindset of inadequacy to worthiness.  

Douglas Fir
Depending on what Dougie is mixed with, it can have a citrus or apple sidenote to it.  In this blend, it does take on the citrus smell.  This adds to the uplifting mood we are trying to create by moving our perspective from upset to renewed.  

I use cinnamon bark for this blend, which seems like an odd addition to this blend, but I promise you will not be disappointed.  It really does add a spiciness that blends so well with the citrus.

So, let’s get scientific about the main organic compound of cinnamon: Cinnamaldehyde.  This is what gives cinnamon its flavor, color, and insect-repellent qualities.  It’s also the reason you can’t apply it neat to skin (you need to dilute it with a carrier oil). 

What to do:
Fill your diffuser with room-temperature water
Add the quantities of oils in the picture above to the diffuser 
Turn the diffuser on and keep it near you as you decide what needs to be organized or tossed

Easy peasey!
