The woodsy essential oils are wonderful for keeping our self grounded. When we are grounded we are more stable with our emotions.
You will find that if the essential oil came from a tree, wood etc or even ended in wood it would be more of a warm or grounding effect.

If you feel you need to keep more grounded you can use the oils the following ways: placing a drop or two on a napkin or Kleenex and
inhaling when you need that connection when you are not able to go outside to ground yourself. Use a diffuser by adding 7 drops and
then add water and allow it to bring this grounding to the room/space you are in. By mixing it in a base: lotion, oil or cream - always
only a total of 7 - 10 drops per one ounce of base. You can then massage it on your body to keep you grounded. A little goes a long way
and concentrate it on the lower chakras and legs.
