Cypress Essential Oil

Cypress Essential Oil is regarded as a tonic on both physical and emotional levels. This oil can help calm excessive thinking, soothe the mind when one is feeling overwhelmed, and assist grief, trauma, and transition. Aromatically, it has been shown to reduce feelings of anxiety and tension.*

Orange Essential Oil

Citrus scents are known to promote cheerfulness, and the sweet orange essential oil is no exception. By stimulating the immune system and calming and uplifting emotions, Orange Essential Oil is great at supporting overall well-being. It is also known as an essential oil great for inspiration and creativity.*

Energy Essential Oil Blend

Energy Essential Oil Blend was created to give you a little boost during the day when you start feeling your energy drop.* 

Essential Oil Diffuser

The most common diffusers use steam to bring the aroma of the essential oils into the air. At Simply Earth we use this 80 ml diffuser and this 200 ml diffuser

5 ml Blend Bottle

If you love this blend, you can premix a master blend in a 5 ml blend bottle. These small bottles are amber to help blend last longer. Once you’ve made a master blend (premixed blend) all you need to do is add a couple of drops from the bottle to your diffuser.
