Ingredients

Instructions

Add the oils to a 5ml dropper bottle and shake to combine. Add 3-5 drops to your diffuser to promote a tranquil, grounded atmosphere, or dilute and use as a massage oil to relieve tension.

If you need a substitute for Blue Tansy, the closest is probably Roman Chamomile, both in scent and in terms of it's emotional effects. For German Chamomile. the closest substitute is also Roman Chamomile. Osmanthus is more difficult to find a substitute for, but you'll probably want to use an alternative due to it's high cost. It's used in this blend for it's calming, relaxing effect so you could try any of the other floral oils that are known for their relaxing effects, eg lavender, ylang ylang, patchouli, neroli, jasmine or rose otto. The scent will be a bit different but the overall effect will be similar, particularly since the blend only contains a small amount of this oil.

Black Spruce, Ho Wood and Frankincense are all fairly low cost oils and they're the main components of the blend, so if you don't have them, I'd suggest investing in them to get as close as possible to the original blend. Blue Tansy and German Chamomile are a bit pricier but a 5 ml bottle isn't too expensive and will last a long time if all you use them for is to make your own version of Balance. So if Balance is one of your favorite blends and you plan to use it a lot, it might be worth getting a 5 ml bottle of each. You'll still save a lot of money.

If you don't have a lot of these oils, you could consider trying a similar blend from another reputable essential oil company. The closest we could find is Plant Therapy's Self Esteem. It has four of the same oils (Black Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense and Blue Tansy) so it's very close to doTERRA's Balance and a lot more affordable. And unlike Balance, it's not diluted in fractionated coconut oil - it's just the undiluted essential oils.
