3 Drops of Rosemary Around The World Oil – Rosemary is one of the most popular aromatic and medicinal plants by far. Rosemary Around The World oil has a variety of vital properties that support relaxation, making it a perfect oil to add to your diffuser blend. In fact, Research shows that simply inhaling the aroma of a Rosemary based essential oil can lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol in your blood. High cortisol levels are caused by stress, anxiety, or any thought or event that puts your body in "fight-or-flight" mode.
Lavender, Cedarwood, and Roman ChamomileDo you have trouble sleeping? Spend too much time tossing and turning at night? If so, then you definitely know how valuable a full night’s sleep really is. Without a deep, restful 8-9 hours, most people drag that grogginess with them throughout the day. If this is sounding all too familiar, you can change your reality.

2 Drops Lavender Essential Oil – Likely the most famous essential oil due to its various uses and applications. Lavender oil is the go-to when you want to ease tension, induce relaxation, and encourage deep and restful sleep. Two of the best aromatherapy blends that contain Lavender are Good Night Synergy Blend and Sleep Ease Synergy Blend. Both blends also contain Chamomile and Ylang Ylang essential oil that pair well with Lavender to help ease you to sleep.
2 Drops Cedarwood Essential Oil – Known for its warm and woody aroma profile; Cedarwood essential oil can help ground and center your mind so you won’t be focused on all of the things that need doing tomorrow. Cedarwood is an oil you can find in our Tranquility Synergy Blend or Harmony Synergy Blend. Try these blends to maximize its calming benefits.
2 Drops Roman Chamomile Essential Oil – Like Lavender, Chamomile flowers are a popular bedtime tea. It has calming properties that help soothe the mind and body and prepare you to catch some Zzz’s.

We recommend using floral Synergy Blends that contain Rose, such as Spring Garden and Aphrodisiac. Spring Garden can help you take a step back and relax, while Aphrodisiac can enhance sensual energy.

Instead of making your own blend, you can use an expertly formulated premade blend such as the Fearless Roll-On Synergy Blend or Fearless Synergy Blend.
