21 Drops Aromatherapy Review


At 21 Drops we state our intentions upfront on every perfectly designed bottle: to invigorate, strengthen, support, uplift, de-stress, decongest or simply balance and soothe. Our blends have been created with this commitment in mind: accessing the knowledge of centuries to counteract the depleting effects of our modern everyday lives.


Aromatherapy works when essential oils are inhaled carrying the aromatic molecules to the limbic system in the brain. The limbic system influences the endocrine system and the autonomic nervous system. In a nut shell, inhaling certain essential oils can help bring changes in physical, mental and emotions by working with our body responses. 21 Drops is created to help counteract the negative effects of a stressful daily life. Why 21 Drops? Well they have 21 specifically created blends. Formulas such as Invigorate, Headache, Calm, Focus, Sleep and many more.



Here are a few 21 Drops blends:


Invigorate – Helps if you feel drained. Designed to motivate and energize with the oils of cedarwood, rosemary leaf, black pepper and juniper. This blend promote blood flow to energize the body.



Passion – Feeling frisky? Help release inhibitions with the oils of jasmine flower, rose flower, cardamom seed and sandalwood. Said to ignite passion.



Carry On – Need help with a Heavy Heart? This blend of rose flower, helichyrsum flower, sandalwood, lavender and frankincense oils can help settle the emotional trauma effects on the nervous system




I tried 07, Equalize. It's like 21 drops knew me, and knew this is the one I would pick. It's meant to equalize your moods, you know those times when you feel a little crazy or stressed? This oil, with a little drop behind your ears or on your wrist should help.


To Use:


For relief from fluctuations, apply Equalize to your wrists, where the heart meridian points are concentrated and where the oils are easily absorbed, to help regain your emotional balance. Help regulate blood flow by applying this blend to the side and back of your neck, where the Governing Vessel (the body’s main river of Yang energy) runs. For maximum benefit, inhale our Equalize blend regularly throughout the day. It’s a bit like a yoga class in a bottle. Just breathe



I don't know if it's just my mind playing tricks on me, but I swear this stuff works! I applied the oil to my wrists when I was feeling stressed and moody from work, and I instantly felt a calming relief. It also works nicely as a perfume. It's made with a blend of sandalwood, palmarose, rose and frankincense. The product comes housed in a nice little cardboard box, this would make a fabulous gift. (Hopefully it won't offend whoever you give it to!)




I'm dying to try the oils for pain, Headaches, sleep and hangovers. The Carry On one would be another must have, because it's meant to help you get over emotional pain. Pretty cool eh? Each 21 drops blend sells for $28, and can be purchased at 21drops.com You can also purchase trios for different occasions. I've only tried one, but I love 21drops, and I can't wait to get hands on more!
