Being grounded means feeling centered, balanced and resilient, no matter what’s going on around you. If you aren’t grounded, you may easily feel drained, anxious, scattered and unable to focus. Constantly rushing without being present in your body and feeling ‘spacey’ is another sign. Even some migraines are a result of too much chi (energy) being caught in your head, and not enough energy being focused in the feet. When you are grounded, you‘ll be able to feel a steadiness within you, no matter what.
Here is a simple recipe that will help you to feel vibrant, relaxed and connected to the earth. In addition to the healing benefits of these amazing essential oils, the blend includes Dandelion heads and Cherry blossoms for an extra boost. Even though most of us consider Dandelions a weed, they have actually been used medicinally for generations. Where the earth is too tight, Dandelions try to loosen up compacted soil — the same concept can be applied to our bodies. If you have a hard time releasing tension, dandelions are the right match for you. The freshly picked dandelion heads add their calming energy to this blend while the Cherry blossoms add a fresh spring reminder that we can re-bloom and start over again.
Recipe & Directions
- 20 drops Himalayan Cedarwood oil

- 10 drops Rosewood oil
- 10 drops Lavender Oil
- 3/4 ounces Fractionated coconut oil or olive oil

In a one ounce bottle, combine all the ingredients. Apply a small amount to the bottoms of your feet and set the intention of re-connecting with the earth.
To get the most out of this oil, massage it onto the soles of your feet every night followed by a grounding visualization. A popular method is visualizing yourself as a tree. Begin by standing, closing your eyes and taking three long, deep breaths. Visualize your energy flowing down into the center of the earth, layer by layer, until it reaches the center of the earth. Visualize your roots slowly growing deep into the ground. Feel the energy of the earth moving up through the roots. Focus on pulling that energy up through your entire body, starting at your feet and moving up your body until it reaches your head.
The oil is considered safe for later stages of pregnancy. Essential oil use is not recommended during the first trimester of pregnancy.
