Need a little Grounding Essential Oil to hold you down?
Gary Young, the Founder of Young Living, made this essential oil blend to help people who were going through a loss such as divorce or even the loss of a child. Often the people he was seeing in his clinic felt physically stuck and not able to move on, some had even checked out from life. So Gary made the Grounding essential oil blend to hold these people emotionally, until they are ready to grieve and deal with the loss they have experienced.
Gary also used to use it to help people with anger issues to overcome the intense feelings that were brewing inside them.

How to use Grounding Essential Oil?
I personally love to use Ground Essential Oil when I feel out of balance or during mediation if I find my mind is wandering a lot. I take a drop in my palm, energise it by rubbing my palms together 3 times in a clockwise circular motion and then inhaling the Grounding essential oil blend. I imagine that there are roots coming out the bottom of my feet that are pulling me down, down, down into the ground. They are holding me tightly to Mother Earth and keeping my attachment to the ground strong.
