Doterra Oils for Grief:


Doterra Oils for Grief:  My personal favorite uses for Cardamom have been for nausea, and for deep sadness.

When I have struggled with intense heart ache in my marriage, adding cardamom to my diffuser and sticking close to breath in the vapors- 

really took the sting out of the emotional pain I was feeling. Reminding me, this feeling won't last forever, it will pass in a day or so. I also noticed, that after a few days of needing the cardamom, I was able to voice my feelings to my husband much easier than if I had not been intentional in how I used my oils for support.
