This week kicked off the start of #thejoyfulcrew A to Z of essential oils, where we will put a spotlight on every single oil doTERRA has alphabetically! With over 150 oils, this education series is bound to last a while! Make sure you follow me over on Instagram to see how I use the oils on the daily for even more inspiration.
A is for Arborvitae Essential Oil. The Arborvitae tree, native to the Pacific Northwest of North America, is a majestic evergreen coniferous tree that has earned the nickname ‘Tree of Life.’ It has natural preserving properties that keep wood from rotting.
✨ Bring the shine back to your favourite wooden furniture with this homemade wood polish :
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ¼ cup vinegar
- 10 drops Arborvitae
Arborvitae is also a powerful cleansing and purifying agent that protects against environmental and seasonal threats. Diffusing it can also help purify the air and provide a grounding aroma. TIP: Diffuse with Ylang Ylang or Lavender for a blissful bedtime aroma🌸💕
🕷Natural Insect Repellant🕷
Rich with the chemical components tropolones, Arborvitae helps repel creepies + crawlies. That’s why it’s the main ingredient in our Terra Shield/Terra Armour our insect repelling blends!
Emotionally, it is also The Oil of Divine Grace – inviting individuals to live with peace and joy by trusting in the abundant flow of the universe, instead of constantly struggling and sacrificing to get things done. TIP: Add to souls of feet or third eye for deeper meditations 🧘♂️

🧘♀️ The Oil of Relaxation, this blend assists the body in calming, relaxing and releasing physical tension. On an emotional level, the blend moves an individual from stiffness of heart and mind to openness and flexibility. Once the body relaxes, so does the mind. As the muscles release, the heart can reopen ❤️
