Balanced Life

Balancing all the areas of our lives can sometimes feel overwhelming, so let's look at at the ways the oil for this month can help keep us grounded and strong, in our relationships with Allah Most High our children our loved ones and in our career  In sha Allah.

Rooted And Grounded

So why are oils from trees so significant in supporting us and firmly rooting and grounding our physical and emotional wellbeing?

Trees live in the present moment. They are not in a hurry, they are stable, they are deep-rooted in the earth, but their branches extend high up to the sky.

Each tree and plant has its own unique personality, which can be found in its natural chemical makeup. The primary chemical constituents of a tree oil are monoterpenes, which are very restoring in nature.

Start Your Day

After you wake up, apply one to two drops of doTERRA Balance to the bottom of your feet. This will help promote focus but also evoke feelings of calmness and tranquillity throughout the day. Repeat again in the evening.

Balance Blend helps us to:

    • Be focussed with Osmanthus
    • Stay in control with Blue Tansyflower


When we have deep roots firmly fixed in our deen, and the sunnah of our beloved Rasool saw, our branches will extend upwards and in every direction, touching all those we love and who are in our care with the beautiful fruits of our good works.  When we are grounded and rooted, we can worship Allah and emulate His messenger saw in a Balanced state of mind, bringing all that is good in our daily actions and words and reaching out to Allah Most High, through dhikr and prayer. Balance oil really reminds us to have soft energy and reconnect to the Truth.

Balance Blend helps us to:

    • Be gentle with Ho wood leaf
    • Connect to our Inner Light and Truth with Frankincense

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

"The Messenger of Allah () was brought a dish with unripe dates on it. He said: The parable of a goodly word is that of a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the sky (14:24 & 25)

Connection, Spirituality

Balance oil helps us to connect to the Truth, Allah and our beautiful deen. Frankincense oil is known as the oil of Truth which is one of the powerful oils in this wonderful grounding blend.  promoting spiritual awareness, and assisting us through times of darkness, through connecting the soul through its inner light.

Balance Blend helps us to:

    • Connect to spiritual light with Frankincense

Gentle Mother

As women with a sacred womb, we all have a nurturing and protecting nature that Allah has placed within us, whether we have children or not.

when we use Balance oil we feel truly able to give and receive in a gentle, kind, balanced and calm state of mind.

Let us call on Allah's name Ya-Latif Gentle and kind

    • Be gentle with Ho wood leaf
    • Stay calm with Blue Chamomile flower

Feeling Overwhelmed

We can all feel overwhelmed at times especially if we are trying to balance family life with a career...One of the main benefits of doTERRA Balance is its ability to evoke feelings of tranquillity. When you feel overwhelmed emotionally, take a step back and give yourself the peace your mind needs.

Diffuse doTERRA Balance or apply doTERRA Balance topically to create an environment of tranquillity so that you can move forward feeling emotionally balanced and ready to take on the tasks ahead of you. In sha Allah

Balance Blend helps us to:

    • Be in a tranquil state with Blue Chamomile flower

Do you find it difficult to relax your mind?

For a grounding experience place, 1 to 2 drops of Balance into the palm of your hands rub them together and inhale the aroma.

As we breathe in the scent of an essential oil, it triggers specific reactions physiological and emotional reactions based on our own individual needs and overall health. This is why aromatic use is such a big part of mood management and wellness. If you are calm and balanced you can create a calm and balanced home, for yourself and those you love, cultivating our four traits of Leadership, Love, Wisdom and Justice, with a balanced mind.

Balance Blend helps us to:

    • Relax our body and mind with Ho wood leaf
    • Calm feelings of tension with Blue Chamomile flower

Self Care

Be kind to yourself. For those moments when you just need time to relax and recharge, add approximately 5 to 8 drops of doTERRA Balance with a cup of Epsom salts to your bathwater. This will evoke feelings of balance and tranquillity, and create your own spa experience, in order to be a cherished Muslimah we need to value our own self first be patient with yourself and know you are recharging and healing.
