Everybody grieves. It looks different for each person, but we all experience loss in our lives. Find comfort and take the time to care for yourself with essential oil blends such as doTERRA Console® and doTERRA Peace®.
Grief is a process. Denial, anger, sadness. You might also experience fear, confusion, loneliness, and regret. Whatever it looks like for you, there are essential oils to help provide comfort during these sorrowful times.
doTERRA Console was created to promote feelings of comfort and hope. Soothing floral essential oils are partnered with the aromas of grounding Sandalwood and renewing Frankincense. Apply the blend over your heart or diffuse for aromas that encourage hopefulness.
If you have lost a loved one, you may feel angry and want to blame somebody for your loss. doTERRA Forgive contains powerful tree and herb essential oils with a grounding aroma to help you let go of the anger you may feel. Diffuse or apply to your wrists when you feel ready to move forward.
Grief can affect you in many ways. You might find that sleep does not come easily. Use doTERRA Serenity to calm your senses and support a restful sleeping environment. At times, the burden of sadness can feel like a weight on your chest. Use doTERRA Breathe to help promote feelings of clear breathing. Apply to your chest and breathe slowly and deeply through your nose for two minutes.
Over time the sorrow will lessen, and you will find joy again, but that does not mean the feelings of sadness will not revisit you. Use doTERRA Peace in those moments and find reassurance.
Have compassion with yourself through this process. Take care of yourself.
