Serenity Now!

doTERRA’s Serenity oil blend is an oil I use almost daily. I would say I more often choose Serenity over Lavender when I’m filling my diffuser for the night and when I’m traveling. While one of the primary oils is lavender, it is much more complex in its aroma and has a lot of benefits.

This oil as the name implies is part of the restful group of oils. That means the oils in this group promote rest, relaxation, emotional support and is soothing to both our body and mind.

The complexity of Serenity’s aroma comes from a unique blend of these oils:

  1. Lavender

  2. Cedarwood

  3. Ho Wood

  4. Ylang Ylang

  5. Marjoram

  6. Roman Chamomile

  7. Vetiver

  8. Vanilla Bean

  9. Hawaiian Sandalwood

I find the oil to be pleasant, not too flowery, peaceful and happy.  The primary benefits of this oil are of course, rest, relaxation, peacefulness and sleep. It is a fantastic oil to use when your mind is busy and you want to center yourself during meditation or preparing for sleep.


Some of the ways I found to use this oil include:

  1. Diffusing it at night with doTERRA’s Breathe and Vetiver. The combination of these 3 oils promotes sleep and helps with snoring and respiratory issues at night

  2. Applying to my feet bottoms to promote relaxation

  3. Inhaling a couple drops to help with anxiety and stress “in the moment.” I will sometimes include a drop of Breathe to help with panic attacks and feeling like you can’t breathe during those times of very high stress.

  4. Applying it to my wrists, behind my ears and temples to ease stress and overthinking

I have also recently started using the doTERRA Serenity soft gels at night.  In addition to using Serenity at night in my diffuser, when used with the soft gels I’m finding I’m waking up more rested and energized.  I have found the soft gels easier to use than sleep aids, prescription, over the counter, because I don’t feel drugged, forced to sleep or have a hard time waking up.

The benefits of the Serenity soft gels include:

  1. Relieves occasional sleeplessness

  2. Promotes healthy relaxation and sleep

  3. Helps you get the refreshing sleep you need without leaving you feeling groggy or sleepy the next day

  4. Helps make a difference in the quality and the ease of going to sleep

  5. Encourages restful sleep

  6. Calms the nervous system

  7. Helps to reduce stress

You can read more about the Serenity soft gels on the doTERRA website blog:

Sleep, relaxation, stress management and anxiety relief are among the top areas of concern people will mention to me when we start talking about how essential oils can help them.  These issues are rampant in our overworked, highly stressed lives.  Drugs and medications for anxiety, depression and sleep are the most common prescriptions written by family doctors.  Where possible, I prefer to avoid expensive medications and doctor office bills in favor of or complimented with a natural solution.


What natural solution have you found to help with sleep, relaxation and stress management?
