We took the boys to our sledding hill today. While they screamed with delight sailing down the hill, my friend and I spent the entire time pushing and rocking and pushing and rocking her car out of it's ice trap.
We finally managed to get it out with the help of a kind stranger, but not before my toes succumbed to the cold. I'm susceptible to chilblains--painful inflammation that is triggered by cold exposure. It can be debilitating to me: my toes start to get red and puffy and they ache and itch. As soon as we got home, I took off my boots and grabbed my Aromatouch oil.
I massaged it into my achey toes and felt the immediate warmth and relief.
Cypress oil is the first ingredient in this doTERRA blend. Cypress aids in circulation and that's just what I needed!
The Aromatouch blend also has a lovely synergistic blend of other oils (including lavender and marjoram) that have been proven to reduce anxiety and therefore boost the immune system. The delicious scent cannot help but be inhaled and that's good, because the aromatherapy benefits of this oil include supporting the respiratory system!
It didn't take long for the boys to catch a whiff of this heavenly oil and before I knew it, I had the bare feet of two ten-year-old boys in my lap--toes wiggling, waiting to be massaged! Being a mom of three older boys, I know these moments of true connection are fleeting, so I relish the opportunity to nurture my boys in this way.
I rub this wonderful oil into their sweet, willing soles and I close my eyes and breathe deep.
Small moments like these fill me up.
And my feet feel great, too :-)
