This week we are focusing on one of my favorite oils, Serenity. This one has been especially helpful in my family as we use it regularly for our son. Diffusing this oil helps create a peaceful atmosphere and a restful sleeping environment. One of our favorite diffuser blends uses 4 drops of Wild Orange, 3 drops of Serenity, and 1 drop of Peppermint.
The newly updated dōTERRA Serenity combines essential oils renowned for their ability to lessen feelings of tension and calm emotions, and support a restful sleep when used aromatically. The blend creates a relaxing environment with its grounding aroma that calms the mind and soothes the senses. It is especially calming when used in a warm bath with Epsom salts to create a relaxing, renewing experience. dōTERRA Serenity can be used in conjunction with dōTERRA Serenity Restful Complex Softgels to promote a restful night’s sleep.

I really like adding this blend to fractionated coconut oil to use for massage. The aroma is so beautiful and really sets an energy of relaxation in the room. We also like to use this oil on the bottoms of our feet whenever we feel like we need to have a moment of relaxation or when we want to take an emotional breather!
I also am a HUGE fan of our Serenity Restful Complex Softgels! The are a lifesaver for me. According to world-renowned sleep expert Dr. Russell G. Foster, if you are an average person, 36 percent of your life will be spent sleeping. Based on time and direct influence on health, sleeping may be the single biggest component of overall well-being, yet of all healthy lifestyle behaviors, it has traditionally received the least attention. With modern research has come an increased understanding of what happens when we sleep and its importance, along with new methods of addressing this pervasive issue.

I generally have a hard time shutting down my brain at night, and usually have a million thoughts per minute (or at least it feels like it) going through my head. I take two of these softgels and after about 20 minutes I feel so much more relaxed and I fall asleep much easier. I also tend to be a worry-wart. (That's still a thing right?) If I'm feeling anxious during the day, I will take one or two of these to help calm and relax my body. It's seriously a product I will never be without.
So what do you think? Are you in love with Serenity?
