Peace & Calming Essential Oil

by Amanda

There seems to be a recurring trend with my blog the past few months; I appear for a while……life gets crazy & I disappear……I miss my blog & I reappear……repeat…..repeat.  For now, I have chosen to give myself grace in this & simply put a priority on certain things in my life & do my best to return here when I can.  I’m trying to train myself to follow a schedule & hopefully make better use of my time, but my personality likes to flee from schedules as quickly as possible, so we’ll see how that goes :) .

I do long to have the time to be here regularly though, so I will keep doing my best to post when I can squeeze it in.  Today I want to continue on with talking about the Everyday Oils from Young Living.  If you’ve missed the past posts on these oils, you can catch up here.

Let’s look at Peace & Calming essential oil blend today!

Peace & Calming


Many mommies adore Peace & Calming!  I’ve heard so many stories of kids & adults sleeping better, longer & so on just from using Peace & Calming.  The oils in this blend are: Blue Tansy, Patchouli, Tangerine, Orange & Ylang Ylang.

I really love diffusing Peace & Calming in the evenings, just to help us all unwind from the day, and if my mind is especially busy & I suspect I may have trouble falling asleep, I rub a few drops on the bottoms of my feet & rub a little on my neck before heading off to bed & it works wonders!

Here’s what Young Living’s site has to say about Peace & Calming:

Peace & Calming® is a gentle, fragrant blend. When diffused, it helps calm tensions and uplift the spirit, promoting relaxation and a deep sense of peace. When massaged on the bottoms of the feet, it can be a wonderful prelude to a peaceful night’s rest. Peace & Calming may be especially calming and comforting to young children after an overactive and stressful day.

Qualities of the oils found within this blend:

Blue Tansy - Helps cleanse the liver & lymphatic system, combats anger & negative emotions

Patchouli - promotes grounding, helps center emotions to clarify thoughts, allowing the mind to relax

Tangerine - sedating & calming, helps with anxiety & nervousness

Orange - elevating to the mind & body, brings joy & peace

Ylang Ylang - increases relaxation, restores confidence & equilibrium

Peace & Calming



  • Massage onto feet for peaceful sleep
  • Calm overactive little ones
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • Rub behind an overactive pets’ ears
  • Mix with a carrier oil for a relaxing massage
  • Mix a few drops with epsom salts & add to bathwater
  • Diffuse in room to help with teeth grinding
  • Panic attacks
  • Bedwetting

As with all of the oils we discuss, the list of uses goes on & on!  Peace & Calming is truly a wonderful oil to have in your home.  It is a part of Young Living’s Everyday Oils collection which I talk more about here.  You can also view my recorded webinar on this collection here.
