The power of essential oils is incredible! There are oils to support us with almost anything we are facing. Because the emotional brain can only respond to smell, essential oils are very powerful at helping us move through blocks and support us to live our best life.

This is a blend I created last year for the Illuminate retreat in Adelaide (it’s happening again this year – here are all the details) and also made up a blend for myself and it has been one that I have turned to when needed to feel empowered, inspired, creative, optimistic and abundant. The oils and blends I chose are all incredible for helping to create high vibes and allow you to shine your light (brightly).

This is my blend for 2018 as I continue to step out of my comfort zone, into my role as a leader for my team and continue to share doTERRA with more people this year.

These are the oils, quantities (in a 10ml roller bottle), plus why I added them to this blend.

Citrus Bliss – 3 drops

The oil of creativity – this blend inspires creativity and helps to restore your spark and to help you connect with your natural creative sense.

Frankincense – 2 drops

The oil of truth – Frankincense is the king of oils for a reason! It is incredible and will help you to let go of lower vibrations and connect your soul with its inner light.

Bergamot – 2 drops

The oil of self-acceptance – Bergamot helps us to see life with more optimism and helps to awaken the soul to hope and offers us courage in our endeavours.

Ginger – 2 drops

The oil of empowerment – Ginger helps us to be fully present and participate in life (our life) and teaches us that we have to be fully committed to be successful (yup – commitment = success).

Lemon – 2 drops

The oil of focus – this oil helps to nourish the mind and aids us with concentration. It helps to inspire playfulness and buoyancy of the heart.

Wild orange – 2 drops

The oil of abundance – Not only does wild orange give us a perk up but it helps to foster creativity, it inspires abundance, support a positive mood and helps to reconnect us with our inner child.

Passion – 4 drops

The inspiring blend – this blend is the blend for finding your passion. It inspires us to be more playful and spontaneous and helps us to break free from the limitations we place on ourselves.  


I got this bend out and applied to my pulse points and over my heart when setting my goals and intentions for the year ahead. When you sit down to set your goals for 2018 (or any time for that matter) have an oil or a blend of oils to anchor you to that vision, goals and intentions. Whenever you feel out of alignment with it, get out your oil or blend to bring you back to them. Particularly if you choose oils that will support you mentally and emotionally.

This is my blend for 2018 which will help remind me and anchor me to my goals and vision for 2018.

Here is the science behind it (I do like the facts to back things up but don’t totally get all of this – a lot of it goes over my head).

When we breathe in an essential oil, the molecules from the oil travel up our nose to get to the olfactory membranes in the nose lining. The lining of the nerve cells triggers electrical impulses to the olfactory bulb in the brain. The olfactory bulb transits these impulses to the amygdala and other parts of the limbic system in the brain. This is where are emotional memories are stored and why certain smells will bring back memories from times in your life.

Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can have profound physiological and psychological effects… Olfactory responses to odours induce the brain to stimulate the release of hormones and neurochemicals that in turn alter the body’s physiology and behaviour.
