Who doesn’t want to start the new year with more intention and mindfulness?! As we jump right back into the swing of things, it’s easy to settle into the usual routine with work and family and cleaning and cooking, maybe with a couple new resolutions in there. Practicing mindfulness and meditation can help you stay in the present and grounded in the midst of all that. Our new blend Intention, part of our Ready, Set, Go! Set, was created to do just that.
Created for both adults and children, Intention is a great blend to encourage mindfulness at any time of the day! The blend includes EOs that are both grounding and uplifting, making it perfect when you just need to slow down and get your mind focused on the present.

What’s In It
Kumquat: This is a fun citrus oil and you’ll be hard-pressed to find it in any other blend on the market. Like Lemon, Lime, and Orange, Kumquat is energizing and uplifting. It’s a perfect mood-booster so you’ll be able to focus on mindfulness practices with a head full of positive thoughts!
Frankincense Carterii: Can we really have a meditation blend without Frankincense? Of course not! Its actions within the nervous system help relax and revitalize us all over — from head to toe! It helps with nervous tension and nervous exhaustion by calming and centering the mind so that you can enjoy a few peaceful moments of clarity.
Chamomile German CO2: This extract is highly calming on the nerves, especially for people feeling frustrated and powerless under the weight of stress. It helps achieve a meditative state gently by bringing order to those insistent chaotic thoughts.
Coriander Seed: Combining a warm, woody composure with peppery spice, Coriander Seed both calms and uplifts. It supports feelings of mental fatigue and states of nervousness, worry, and overthinking.
Vetiver: The perfect “chill” oil. Vetiver helps to relax a hyperactive mind that is on a runaway train to nowhere in particular! It also has a nurturing effect on feelings related to insecurity by imbuing us with feelings of calm and strength.
How to Use It
Intention is a great blend to have on hand when you’re practicing yoga, meditation, or just taking a quick minute to yourself to help calm a frazzled mind. If you’re diffusing it, use 2-3 per 100 mL of water. If you decide to use it topically, stick to just a 0.5-1% dilution rate. Whatever way you decide to use it, it’s sure to become a new favorite blend for meditation and mindfulness. Plus it’s KidSafe!
