Let’s face it, the holidays can be stressful.

I like to diffuse my favorite holiday stress blend to keep the stress away. dōTERRA Serenity® and Balance® essential oils are the perfect way to keep my emotions in check.

Are there certain scents and aromas that help you with stress and anxious feelings?

3 drops Serenity
3 drops Balance
Add oils to your diffuser and RELAX!
*Note: To make this recipe into a roller bottle blend, add 5 drops of Serenity and 5 drops of Balance into a 10 mL roller bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with fractionated coconut oil. Apply roller bottle blend to neck and wrists when an extra dose of calm is needed.
