doTERRA’s Serenity & Balance – A Powerhouse Duo for Stress
The stress of daily life affects us all, from infants to the elderly. A certain amount of stress can be good – it can motivate us to get things done, or to create safety or to come up with solutions to problems. But when the stress gets to be too much, or too chronic, our minds and bodies have a hard time handling it, and we end up with physical, mental and emotional complications.
doTERRA has several Emotional Aromatherapy essential oil blends that are wonderful for helping us cope with all sorts of human emotions. Below, I outline two more amazing essential oil blends created by doTERRA that can have profound effects on our ability to manage stress.
doTERRA’s Serenity (Restful) Blend
doTERRA’s Serenity (Restful) Blend is a powerful combination of Lavender Flower, Cedarwood, Ho Wood Leaf, Ylang Ylang Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Vetiver Root, Vanilla Bean Absolute, Hawaiian Sandalwood Wood.
Serenity is amazingly calming, and is especially formulated for supporting healthy sleep. But you can also use it to help your brain and body calm down in stressful moments. I do. When life is stressing me out, I reach for Serenity, topically and aromatically.

doTERRA’s Balance (Grounding) Blend
doTERRA’s Balance (Grounding) Blend is another amazing combination, consisting of Spruce Needle/Leaf, Ho Wood, Frankincense Resin, Blue Tansy Flower, and Blue Chamomile Flower essential oils in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Balance is wonderful for bringing you back down to earth when life’s stresses are sending you into orbit 🙂 I have a roller top on my bottle, and it lives in my Oils for Bedtime bag. I roll it on the bottoms of the feet of my wildlings to help them settle down for a good night’s sleep. I’ve been known to reach for the Balance roller all day long with them, and even diffuse it in the car.

How this Powerhouse Duo Saved Us From a Massive Meltdown
A few years ago, I did quite a bit of research into whether essential oils would help my family with anxious feelings, sleep issues, and other behavioral difficulties. I tried the cheaper oils from the local health food store, with no results. I gave up on oils. Clearly they didn’t work.
Then I met a mom with kids dealing with similar issues, and she used doTERRA. Not only did she help me understand the difference between doTERRA oils and the others; but I could SEE A DIFFERENCE in her kids according to whether they’d remembered to use their oils that morning or not.
So one day one of my very anxious children was having the Mother of All Meltdown Mornings (anxiety due to anticipation of an event going bad), and I called her in desperation. She offered samples of Serenity & Balance. Later in the day, the anticipated Bad Event did, indeed, happen just as feared. I worried and prayed for 20 minutes about how to break the news, fearing the worst.
Then I remembered the samples in my purse.
I applied both Serenity and Balance (neat – undiluted) to my child’s wrists. Waited a couple more minutes and then told him the bad news.
In fact, he took the news calmly and began offering solutions to the problem. AMAZING. I literally stood there with my mouth hanging open.
Needless to say, I was sold on doTERRA, and particularly Serenity and Balance. (This is not to say we’ve never had another meltdown, but rather that we have something to help calm those anxious feelings, and bring us to a state of being able to handle it much better.)
More Ideas for Using Serenity & Balance
These combinations can be used as a blend for your diffuser (or diffuser jewelry), or in roller bottles (diluted with your choice of carrier oil). Be sure to follow the recommended dilution charts, especially for those who are young, old, or who have sensitive skin. You can always add a few more drops until you find your sweet spot 🙂
