Ingredients

Instructions

Add all of the essential oils to an essential oil dropper bottle and mix well.

Some of my favorite ways to use Past Tense are:

  • for tension headaches - I dilute 8 drops in a 10 ml roller bottle that I keep in my drawer at work. Whenever I feel a headache coming on I massage some of this into my temples and around my neck and shoulders.
  • as a massage oil for muscle tension. Again, dilute 8 drops in a 10 ml roller bottle.
  • to deal with stress at work. Past Tense is very calming but the inclusion of oils like peppermint and rosemary means that it also helps with focus and concentration. I add 5 drops to a diffuser to promote a state of relaxed alertness. It helps reduce my stress levels and increases my productivity at the same time.
  • for exams, presentations or other stressful situations where you want to calm your nerves to help you perform at your best

If you don't own a lot of these oils, you could try a similar blend from another supplier. The closest I could find was Plant Therapy's Tension Relief blend. It has 5 of the same oils (peppermint, rosemary, lavender, basil and roman chamomile) and 5 different oils (eucalyptus, spearmint, ravensara, cinnamon leaf and ginger) so it's definitely not the same but it is used for the same purpose and it gets very good reviews. And it's a lot less expensive than Past Tense.
