Our favourite blend for reducing the effects of stress.

We challenged Tamara, Tutor at the Cotswold Academy and Sports Therapist and Aromatherapist, to design the ultimate blend to melt away the tension held in the body by stress and the feelings of overwhelm and anxiety caused by stress.

To combat stress and promote well-being, the combination of Ho Leaf, Sandalwood, and Lime essential oils emerges gives the ultimate 'zen blend'! This unique blend not only captivates the senses with its rich and balancing aroma but also holds powerful properties that can ease tension and induce a profound sense of peace.

Ho Leaf essential oil brings a sense of tranquillity to the blend. Renowned for its calming and soothing properties, Ho Leaf oil acts as a gentle guardian against stress. Its subtle floral and sweet aroma can help alleviate anxiety, quiet the mind, and foster a serene atmosphere.

Sandalwood, with its warm and woody fragrance, is celebrated for its grounding and centring effects. Sandalwood essential oil has been used for centuries in various cultures for its ability to promote relaxation, balance emotions, and instil a sense of inner peace. It acts as a foundation for the blend, grounding the mind and spirit.

Adding a burst of freshness to the blend, Lime essential oil contributes its zesty and uplifting character. Lime oil is known for its invigorating properties that can uplift the mood and dispel feelings of fatigue. Its bright aroma brings a lively element to the blend, creating a refreshing and revitalising burst.

Combine the following essential oils to create a stress-relief blend:
3 drops of Ho Leaf
2 drops of Sandalwood
2 drops of Lime

This calming, grounding, and uplifting blend melts away stress and aids relaxation.

How to Use the Blend for Stress Relief:

  1. Diffusion: Add the blend to an essential oil diffuser to infuse your space with its calming and uplifting aroma.
  2. Topical Application: Dilute the blend with a carrier oil like sweet almond or jojoba oil and apply it to pulse points, such as wrists or temples.
  3. Enhance your bath by adding a few drops of the blend to warm bathwater. Immerse yourself in the soothing scents for a peaceful and rejuvenating soak.
  4. Inhalation: Inhale the aroma directly from the bottle or by placing a drop on a tissue. Take a moment to breathe in the calming essence during stressful situations.

As always ensure you have checked the safety data for each individual.


In the synergy of Ho Leaf, Sandalwood, and Lime, we find a blend that is awakening and uplifting. Whether through diffusion, topical application, bath rituals, or inhalation, this stress-relief blend offers a holistic approach to well-being, helping to dissolve tension and create a harmonious balance within. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
