Using oils with intention

Lemongrass has a powerful mission to assist in cleansing physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Cleanse Inside & Out – Energetically!

Place one drop of dōTERRA Lemongrass Essential Oil in a shot of water and drink it. Place on drop on your third eye and mentally let go of past issues and stagnant energy (you can do this by just taking a few deep breaths). Then, place 5-10 drops of dōTERRA Lemongrass Essential Oil and pinch of salt in a 4 oz. glass spray bottle, top it off with Rose Water or good clean water. Spray the four corners your room and anywhere you may feel “stuck” energy in your house. As you spray, repeat the following mantra:

“I break up and release all negative and stagnant energy and only light and love is welcome in this space”.

If you don’t want to do this….you can always skip, clap your hands, laugh and dance around the room!! If you do this – please send us a video! xoxo G&J
