6 Essential Oils for New Beginnings and Fresh Starts (We All Need It)! 

First things first—Happy New Year!

A new year brings new beginnings and (as much as we don’t like it)—new challenges. However unnerving or exciting it may be, essential oils are here to walk the path with you. Here are six favourite oils for new beginnings that will turn fresh situations into meaningful memories, from new job jitters to lifestyle overhauls.

1. Rose

Do you ever fantasise about other people’s lives but not your own? It’s easy to see the lives of those around us through rose-coloured glasses, and it’s simple to believe that yours pales in comparison, but this isn’t the case! Rose, an essential oil that helps you set the mood for a rom-com-worthy existence, can help you enhance your self-love.

Make a sweet, flowery tranquillity combination with 10 drops of Rose and 10 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oils to provide a little love to your life. Make a warm bath for yourself and add 2–3 droppers of bath oil to the water. Take a dip into the drip after mixing the oil in with your hands.

2. Orange

Orange is a vibrant and uplifting colour that symbolises the energising energy of new beginnings. If you’ve been stuck in a rut and can’t figure out what to do next, Orange can jolt you back into a mood of wonder and self-empowerment. Make your own DIY room spray with the following components to fill your space with energetic aromas:

  • 50 ml rubbing alcohol
  • 90 ml distilled water
  • 15 drops Orange essential oil
  • 7 drops of Lemon essential oil

This energising spray is perfect for when you need a little boost. Use it first thing in the morning to jumpstart your day with a positive attitude and refreshed senses. Inhale the perfume and remember that letting go of negativity in your life can help you to think more clearly and creatively.  It’s a new day, and it’s yours to seize!

3. Frankincense

Frankincense can help you relax by lulling your thoughts into a state of calm. Apply 2–4 drops of Frankincense essential oil to your feet and gently massage as you connect to divine energy as you consider your next big move.

With Frankincense on your side, you can focus on the earthy aroma of this oil to keep you grounded as you hash out the details of your new beginning. As you sort out the intricacies, simply inhale that woodsy aroma and enjoy feelings of calm and tranquillity.

4. Ginger

We may be aware of the next action we need to take, yet we may be hesitant to take it due to fear or self-doubt. That’s where Ginger enters the picture. This spicy aroma, dubbed “oil of self-empowerment,” motivates you to get off the sofa and get things done. Simply dilute a 1:1 ratio with a carrier oil of your choice and massage it into your abdomen to instil a sense of strength and confidence.

5. Vetiver

New beginnings are a creative venture, even though they may not appear much at first. Vetiver is a creative force multiplier that allows you to conceive new possibilities while being grounded in reality. When it’s time to meditate and materialise your new reality, diffuse a blend of 3 drops Lavender and 2 drops Vetiver and take a deep breath while imagining all the innovative ways you can achieve your goal.

Allowing your thoughts to explore the possibilities can open up a world of possibilities you didn’t realise existed.

6. Clary Sage

Starting something new is always accompanied by a sense of worry and self-doubt. It’s natural to be cautious when venturing into unfamiliar territory, but when that anxiety becomes excessive, it’s time to seek Clary Sage’s assistance. This essential oil is quiet and calming, with a herbal aroma that helps to set the tone as you eliminate anxiety and re-instil a sense of tranquilly in your mind.

Before bedtime, mix a few drops of this oil into your skin moisturiser for a relaxing aroma that you may inhale as you drift off to sleep. Apply a few drops of Clary Sage to your hands or add it to your bedside diffuser before snuggling up in bed, and breathe in the herbal aroma. Close your eyes and drift away.

Your goals are within grasp, and with these essential oils by your side, you’ll start to believe in yourself as you embark on new adventures. So, with which one will you be entering 2022?
