The Great Northern Escape

broken image

Enter the woodland realm with dōTERRA Northern Escape®, a fantasy blend of Black Spruce, Siberian and Balsam Firs, Cedarwood, Cypress, Frankincense and more. Fans of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: is it just me, or does this blend take you straight to Rivendell? To me, there’s something about the aromas of Black Spruce and Siberian and Balsam Fir oils that lingers longer in my senses than most others. It really feels like you’re taking in a breath of the forest, making Northern Escape a special oil to diffuse for a beautiful atmosphere of harmony and peace.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this oil evokes different feelings in people based on the environment in which they live. For example, someone from the warm South might find Northern Escape more mystical and enchanting than someone from a forested region in the North, where they’re actually surrounded by these scents in nature. Might southerners view Northern Escape in a way similar to how northerners experience Island Mint? You decide. Although diffusing this woodland blend on its own is a fantastic experience, it’s also a rich component within a larger diffuser blend.

Break of Dawn

  • 2 drops Northern Escape
  • 4 drops Grapefruit
  • 3 drops Wild Orange

Let’s break it down for a glimpse of every oil within Northern Escape: its fresh, green aroma is full of Black Spruce, Siberian Fir, Balsam Fir, Lavandin, Cedarwood, Cypress, Hinoki, Frankincense, Nootka, Cananga, and Clove essential oils. No wonder it creates such a tranquil, grounding atmosphere! Use this blend aromatically or topically; whenever you need a minute to yourself to think and breathe, Northern Escape melts away the rush of everyday life with a larger experience of beautiful outdoor ambiance.

Woody, refreshing Black Spruce brings power and sweetness; while Siberian and Balsam Firs bring their own uplifting pine fragrances. Cedarwood promotes total tranquility for a truly relaxing atmosphere. Cypress brings out the beauty of the floral oils in the blend, which are Lavandin, a slightly sharper cousin of Lavender, and soothing Cananga. Frankincense adds its kingly warmth, spice, and balance; and Nootka contributes a grounding effect similar to that of Arborvitae. Finally, Hinoki adds a note of airy relaxation, and Clove rounds out Northern Escape with an invigorating aroma of welcome.

With all of these reasons under your belt, escape into the forest by adding a drop of Northern Escape to lotion or Fractionated Coconut Oil for use in a soothing, balancing massage. Multiple oils nested within Northern Escape are known for soothing the skin, so this could easily become your favorite inspiring oil for a variety of massages. The crisp, refreshing nature of the blend makes it an easy win for the office, kitchen, and car — anywhere in need of a positively clean scent that doubles as a refreshing escape. Add Northern Escape to a surface cleaner, and you might find that cleaning job to be a more pleasant and dramatically woodsy experience than you thought possible. Just the thought is making me want to go try it on my counters, letting Northern Escape transform my kitchen into an otherworldly woodland scene! Trees, so mighty and towering, somehow have a soft and balancing effect on us. This harmonious gift of nature is neatly bottled and perfectly mixed for us in the woodland blend called Northern Escape.
