Grounding Essential Oils for Mindfulness Meditation
In June, I traveled to Salt Lake City for Young Living's Grand Convention, which if you ever get a chance to go to any type of Young Living Event- DO IT! The events and sessions that I have attended in the last year have been life changing for me in regards to my personal growth, physical and mental wellness, as well as my business. It also was my first time traveling west, and to high elevations so I knew I needed to prepare myself for the trip. I have heard that the elevations can get to some people, so before I took my trip to Utah, I did some research. I needed to plan which essential oils I needed to pack along with me to a new environment, like Salt Lake City.
One oil that kept coming in my search was Grounding Essential Oil. It just so happened that Grounding Essential Oil came back in stock after being out for a while, and thank freaking goodness! I grabbed grounding in my essential reward order and I fell in love with it!
It was an essential for the trip because of the extremely different elevations, which grounding is a great essential oils to support those feelings. Grounding is a perfect blend of White Fir, Black Spruce, Ylang Ylang, Pine, Cedarwood, Angelica, and Juniper! Wow, let me tell you, that's an amazing blend of essential oils! Basically, it smells like a magical forest!
Let me tell you about tree essential oils, why they are so amazing to use everyday! If you think about trees and their characteristics, you can understand why the essential oils that are distilled from trees have some amazing properties. I like to think of trees as being extremely strong and sturdy, can take on anything! Trees are the framework for so many things. What is even more amazing about trees is their ability to handle the weather and storms. They are able to sway in the wind and then stand right back up when it's over.
The properties of trees have a certain personality that allows me to get through the some specific types of days. I am really thankful that the trip to Utah has lead me to find this very grounding essential oil. Since the trip, I have found several ways use Grounding Essential Oil. When I was on the trip to Utah taking time to hike up the mountains and explore the town, I would apply to the bottoms of my feet. Now that I am back in Pennsylvania and no longer need support with the high elevations of Salt Lake City, I have found so many other ways to use the essential oil.
I love it because it is a great one for stabilizing and "grounding" us when needed. I also love the fact that it's an amazing oil that is inexpensive and so great to be used on people in our homes that sometimes need a little grounding also, fears, insecurities, adjustments, or just changes. I mean we all have those things.
Grounding also helps create a feeling of solidarity and balance, like an anchor. In times when we need to cope constructively with reality it supports our awareness to know how to deal with our emotions.
There are so many ways to use Grounding Essential Oil so let’s talk about them.
Grounding: simply apply Grounding Essential Oil to the soles of the feet, shoulders, on hands to cup nose with deep breathing or apply on diffuser jewelry. I have listed some of my favorite jewelry on my supply page. It’s a great way to use your essential oils all day.

Over the last year of using essential oils I became interested in Chakras. I found that there is a way to support my body, energy, and frequencies while pairing them with essential oils. There are many essential oils that pair well with balancing the 7 Chakras, Grounding Essential Oil is one of them. Specifically, Grounding Essential Oil can support the Base or Root Chakra, which is the foundation of our energy. The Base Chakra is key to feeling grounded, secure, and stable so you can see how Grounding Essential Oil could tie in here. Apply Grounding Essential Oil to support the Root Chakra and support the connection to the earth and emotional clearing. You can learn more about essential oils in several of our books on our supply page.
Yoga and Mediation:
After being a collegiate lacrosse player, I decided it was time to find a new passion that would give me the opportunity to care for myself in a new way of fitness. Over the last several years I found passion and value in yoga and mindfulness practices, and since implementing essential oils into my life I realized how well Young Living Essential Oils complement my yoga practice. Grounding Essential Oil, like other mind calming and relaxing essential oils, is wonderful to use during restorative or hath yoga and mindful meditation practices too. To support your practices, you may choose to diffuse for aromatic benefits or apply topically to feet or wrists. I find several of my favorite recipes from Oils + Glass, one of my favorite books found on my supply page!
I hope you choose to try Grounding Essential Oil, whether it’s for traveling to high elevation areas or for supporting emotional energies. Over the last few months, it has become a house favorite for my yoga practice and daily life occurrences.
