Now for my review:

I was given a bottle of dōTERRA Balance essential oil blend by Holly, a Wellness Advocate. I have used other brands of essential oils but this was my first time to try dōTERRA. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the quality of their products and was excited to give it a try.

The timing was perfect to receive this oil as I had just returned home from a five day trip two days before Thanksgiving. I certainly needed a little balance in my life at that point. I began applying it topically.

My first application was to my wrists and neck in hopes it would help me relax a bit as I made the transition from the trip to preparing for Thanksgiving. After that, I began applying it twice a day on the bottom of my feet. I even diffused it on a particularly busy day.

Since I began using this oil, I feel noticeably calmer. Even after a poor night’s sleep, when I usually feel frazzled and unfocused, I found I was focused and able to stay on task. The Balance Grounding Blend is quickly moving to the top of my list of favorite oils!
