#2 Recipe and Ramblings: Think P.I.G. Diffuser Blend

#2 Recipe and Ramblings: Think P.I.G. Diffuser Blend

“Think P.I.G.- that’s my motto. P stands for Persistence, I stands for Integrity and G stands for Guts. These are ingredients for a successful business and a successful life.” ~Linda Chandler

Persistence, integrity and guts. Not only are these ingredients for a successful business and a successful life, they are also pieces of the strength puzzle. Not giving up takes strength. Sometimes, doing the right thing takes strength. Saying no takes strength, and sometimes simply being brave takes strength.

You will see quite a few diffuser blends in this series. I'd like to note that the way I do these recipes, you will find them in parts, drops or percentages. My reasoning for doing that is that is because I have different personal relationships with the oils, and for each blend I want you to truly understand how much needs to go in each one.

Finding strength

For my diffuser blends, you might choose to buy pre-made bottles of the blend or make your own 1mL or 2mL to put into a diffuser, which is why I may describe recipes differently. But if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

The Think P.I.G. blend is one of my all-time favorite blends. Each oil used in this blend are considered woodsy oils. They are grounded in the Earth for much longer than I’ve been on this planet, and they have a type of strength that us as humans will never have. The fact they can give these beautiful scents off is just simply incredible.

I use this blend in my diffuser when I'm meditating, or when I need to figure out a big problem. It grounds me and strengthens my sense of who I am. When I think of this blend, I think of three large trees looking down on me, their branches touching my shoulders, telling me that I've got this.

Diffuser to relax and find strength

Think P.I.G. Diffuser Blend

6 parts (drops): Frankincense, Boswellia Carterii

2 parts (drops): Sandalwood, Santalum album

2 parts (drops): Rosewood, Aniba rosaeodora

Put 10 drops of the oil into the diffuser and enjoy. 

 

If you are looking for high quality oils that are pure and safe to use in a diffuser, check out Rocky Mountain Oils, and if you’re looking for a great diffuser, check out three of my favorites here, here, and here

Or if you struggle to even find a moment in your day to breathe, let alone have time to sit down and blend anything, you can order a 5 ml bottle of The P.I.G. diffuser blend at my shop here.

So think P.I.G. for yourself today, and find the strength you need to overcome the obstacles in your life.

Botanical Oracle: Juniper, Juniperus communis
Botanical Oracle: Juniper, Juniperus communis

Juniper and juniper berries were one of the first plants I ever worked with as an herbalist. Juniper essential oil is also a great part of the plant to work with, and I’ve used it in many of my blends.

A lot of people may think of gin when they think of juniper, but the berries from this tree also has a deep-rooted history as far back as the Roman Empire (and probably even further back than that). They are also used in cooking, medicine, and in some cases, flavoring.

#11 Recipe and Ramblings: Perfect Couple Spray

This is a very difficult and personal recipe and rambling for me today. If you have been following the series, you may have seen that I am divorced after 14 years of marriage. When I found this quote, though I love it, it made me wonder if I had a right to use it, given the state of my dissolved marriage.

However, I am adding it to the series because over these adversaries {link previous blog}, I have learned a lot of great things. Now that I am dating someone new, I am consciously unmaking previous mistakes in this new relationship.

Botanical Oracle: Marshmallow, Althaea officinalis
Botanical Oracle: Marshmallow, Althaea officinalis

Marshmallow is an extremely common herb you will find in almost every herbalist pharmacy. The roots, leaves, and flowers of this plant are all used in herbal medicine, and its use goes back for centuries.

At times, it has been used for medicinal purposes, like a stomachache, but has also used for enjoyment in sweet wine and even those fluffy marshmallows we enjoy today – though it is no longer used in your everyday grocery marshmallow. Usually, though, you will find this herb in a tincture or tea for gastritis, digestive disorders, or used as a mild laxative.
