Serenity, it's a Vibe - Aromatherapy Blend

What can this blend help with?

Nourish the vitality of your Blood (based on TCM theory) to ground your body, mind and soul to create emotional stability.

Ingredients: Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanioides), Roman Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii), Coconut (Cocos nucifera)oil.

  • Vetiver: In Chinese medicine, vetiver is cool and moist, making it a great Yin oil. It nourishes Blood, Yin and Essence, clears heat and calms the Shen. It is associated with the Earth, Water and Wood Elements. It embodies Mother Earth's calm, reassuring strength and a deep sense of belonging. It's grounding, stabilizing and desensitizing effects make it an excellent oil for weak, tense and hot individuals—situations of burnout where you feel vulnerable. It helps you become present within your body as it shifts energy from the head to the hara or lower dan tian, which is the centre of our instinct. 

Meridians: Liver, Spleen, Kidney, Heart, Chong, Ren

  • Roman Chamomile: In Chinese medicine, Roman Chamomile is seen as energetically being cool with neutral moisture. It is associated with the Wood Element (Liver/Gallbladder) and generally regulates all Qi, mainly Liver-Qi and strengthens the Qi in the Stomach to promote good digestion. The Wood element exemplifies the energy of growth, change, and pushing through (in a healthy way), so Chamomile tends to release stagnant Qi to help in this realm, usually resulting in relaxing the nerves, calming the Shen and moving Blood. Chamomile has an infinity with the solar plexus chakra relieving a build-up of stress and tension.

Meridians: Lungs, Heart, Stomach, Liver

Caution: Considered safe. Some people allergic to flowers in the Asteraceae (Daisy) family may be allergic to Chamomile.

  • Palmarosa: in Chinese medicine, Palmarosa energetically is cool and moist and strengthens the Yin; it nourishes the Heart, Blood, Spleen, and Shen. Its element is Fire, Earth. Palmarosa oil can encourage free-flowing adaptability and security when there is emotional scarcity. Nourishing, supporting, and softening, Palmarosa can be extremely helpful for those with repressed or hardened feelings involving emotional denial or disconnected from insight. It helps the heart and gut instinct work harmoniously together. 

Meridians: Heart, Spleen, Stomach



Step 1: First, twist off the cap and either breathe in the invigorating scent from the roller or wash your hands and roll into the palm of your hand - rub your hands together and cup around your nose, inhale three slow, deep breaths. 

Step 2: Roll a small amount onto the inside of the wrists, around the back of the ears/neck or sternum. Please be mindful that oils can stain. You do not have to continue to step 3 and use acupressure points (this is just another option to use these blends).  

Step 3: Roll on and massage acupuncture/acupressure points: 

  • Ren 17, also called "Sea of Qi," is a place to calm fear or anxiety, to catch what feels like a panicked uprising and send it gently, with love, downward back to the earth—located at the Heart Chakra, which, when open, enhances our ability to open our hearts, allowing us to love deeply and completely.
  • To locate Ren 17: On the midline of the sternum, in a depression level with the crossing of the 4th intercostal space (rib) and the sternum – start under the clavicle and count down the spaces between each rib, then move to the centre of the chest. You will probably feel a tender spot. 


  • Kidney 1, also called "Bubbling Spring," is a point to restore hope and optimism, calms the Spirit & relieve restlessness - revitalizing, renewing, and invigorating Qi, our life force energy. 
  • To locate Kidney 1: On the sole of the foot, roughly one-third between the base of the second toe and the heel, in a hollow formed when the foot is plantar flexed.


  • Kidney 3, also called "Great Ravine," is a critical point for accessing the power of the Kidney organs and addressing issues of energy (think like a battery pack) and, on a spiritual side, your destiny. If you experience excessive fear, anxiety or an overactive flight/fight response, this point brings immediate calm and rekindled strength and resolve. 
  • To locate Kidney 3: In a depression, midway between the tip of the medial malleolus (ankle bone) and the attachment of the Achilles tendon.


  • Spleen 6, also called "Three Yin Intersection," is a commonly used point and one of the most versatile because it crosses the Spleen, Kidney and Liver channels; it can treat many conditions associated with all three organs. In addition, it's essential in treating any digestive, gynecological and emotional conditions; it does this by strengthing the Spleen to restore balance to the Yin and Blood, thus helping the Liver and Kidney systems. 
  • Important: Spleen 6 is a contraindication in pregnancy. If you're pregnant or performing acupressure on someone who is, skip this point. 
  • To locate Spleen 6: is located in line with the centre of the ankle bone on the inside of your lower leg, place the pinkie-side edge of your hand against the high point of your medial malleolus (ankle bone) — With your hand lying flat against your inner leg, find the point one hand width above the tip of the medial malleolus in the centre. 


  • REN 4, also called "Gate of Origin,": is a powerful tonifying point, as it tonifies all forms of Qi, which include the Original Qi, Defensive Qi and Nutritive Qi and all vital substances of the body like Blood, Essence, Yin and Yang. "If Qi is flourishing, there is health; if it is weak, there is disease," therefore, to address any health issue, it is important to strengthen and sometimes redirect the body's energy. By stimulating this point with acupuncture or acupressure, we can access the "deepest energies of the body and the sources of all Qi movement."
  • To locate REN 4: this point is about a hand's width directly below the belly button.


Warning: Store it in a cool dark place. For external use only. Avoid the eye area, if you are epileptic or pregnant. If skin irritation occurs, discontinue use. The information shared is not to replace your primary medical professional's advice.
