I love my oils. I mean I REALLY love them. I've collected a whole big box, and as I paused in front of them this morning wondering what to choose, I laughed at myself, because I wanted to say it out loud to my little brown bottles!
Sounds ridiculous, I know.
But if your a person like me, who has spent her whole life avoiding artificial smells because they truly make me sick to my stomach, these pure compounds make me swoon. I delight in their aromatic goodness and immediately respond to their therapeutic vapors. As I type, ClaryCalm is wafting up to my brain, bringing me ease and helping me focus...I can feel it!
How else do I use my little bottles? I'm happy to share!
When I wake in the morning, if I need a little help rolling out of bed, I grab my peppermint from my nightstand and take a whiff. Just smelling it lights up my brain.
I get out of bed and brush my teeth with my On Guard toothpaste and wash my face with my Verage system and use my Immortelle anti-aging blend with my moisturizer...yum.
I take my whining dog for a walk (she will get a drop of cedarwood on her head to chill her out and ward off ticks).
This is my meditative time, so I put a dab or frankincense and sandalwood on my forehead to help me connect. It does just that.
I get back to the house and set up the diffuser to meet our needs for the day:
Sniffles? On Guard or Lemon, lavender and peppermint
Bummed out? Bergamot and Geranium
Hyper? How about a little Peace
Everyone gets fed and we make the lunches. Boys add a drop of lemon to their water bottles (I prefer Slim and Sassy for metabolic support...the oil is far better than that silly name!)
We take our supplements; I add the Phytoestrogen complex to balance my hormones (goodbye hot flashes!)
I drop them at school and I head to the office (where Deep Blue is hard at work). I'll will probably reach for an oil by midday to boost my brain or refocus (InTune--doTERRA's focus blend) or maybe I'll use Forgive for some grounding.
We'll return back home and the day will wind down. We might use some Digest Tabs after dinner if we need support with digestion-these taste awesome and are a natural alternative to Tums.
We will all take some Serentiy softgels and fill our diffusers for a good night's sleep (Serenity, Vetiver, Lavender, Breathe...)
Sounds like a lot, huh? Well, don't forget that I had a whole day in there, too, and my usage was spread out. All together, I only used about 15-20 drops of oil and that includes the 8-10 that go in the diffusers!
Essential oils are so concentrated that it only takes the smallest amount to make a big impact.
I have just changed the quality of my life (and my family's!) for about $2-3 per day! Amazing.
Such a simple way to alter my mood or support my kids, boost our immune systems and even help my pup.
Now it's your turn! Let me show you how to integrate these oils into your everyday...and, oh yeah, you'll end up smelling great, too!
A whole new world is waiting for you--one filled with precious, powerful, versatile plants and a community full of integrity and heart.
