How to use essential oils when you have no clue.

Today I wanted to address an issue. FEAR.

Fear is powerful. It prevents us from experiencing. As I am sharing my essential oils with my friends, family and outter friends circles, more often then not, someone will say, “I have no clue how that stuff works, so I would never use them.”

Deep breath.

Okay, so at that point I want to pull out my big book, share research, and educate, educate, educate.  -Hint, that doesn’t work! Have you ever been told something and it just goes in one ear and out the other, per say? You don’t understand the lingo, you feel like the person is speaking another language… 

I’ve been there! 

My husband works on the river. He is a tow boat captain. Sometimes, he will accomplish something so great he has to tell me every detail about it. I smile and say things like “I’m proud of you” and “That is so awesome.” I mean it. I am proud and I do think it’s awesome, I just don’t understand a darn word of it (well, most of it). I understand his excitement and his feelings. I understand it is a big deal to him and he is so proud, that he wants to share it with me. I feel privileged that he has chosen to share the details of his accomplishments with me. 

Sometimes, I play the role of my husband in that story. I get soooooo excited about essential oils and blurt out everything I know in 10 minutes. -talk about exhausting (for you)!

I want to share with you the secret on how to use essential oils when you have no clue! I understand this can be overwhelming, but honestly, it doesn’t have to be! 

Here are my 6 easy steps:

  1. Once you get your Premium Starter Kit, open it up! (Don’t have one yet? Click here!)
  2. Pick your favorite color bottle (hint, don’t read the bottles yet)
  3. Open the bottle you just picked. 
  4. Place one drop in your palm and rub your hands together. 
  5. Cup your hands over your nose and breathe deep. Be careful not to touch your eyes. 
  6. Repeat step 5.

You have just experienced your first oil. 

Your body is amazing. It is going to remember that moment, even if your conscious mind does not. 

Tomorrow, I want you to pick a different favorite color and repeat the steps above. 

Okay, I know what you’re thinking. “Seriously, that’s what I read this post for??” Yep. That’s the science behind it!

A question I get when people see my collection is, “How do YOU pick the oil of the day?” I’ve got a pretty large collection. It seems like it would be hard to know which oil I need. It’s not. I walk up to my oils and relax (stop reading the labels), look at my bottles and my subconscious mind chooses the correct bottle for me. It NEVER fails. Note: some oils share similar bottle colors so I make sure I read the label before applying. 🙂  I also have my oils organized in a way that pleases me, so it makes the process even more simplified.

I hope you find this helpful and I wish you the best on your essential oil journey. Remember, our bodies are amazing and can do things that our mind cannot yet conceive. Trust your instincts because, more often then not, they are right! 

Happy oiling!

Mom must have

must-have-oil

I’m so excited to say that I am finally back to blogging. For those of you that don’t know, I recently had a baby boy. He is so beautiful. I love spending all of my time with him. Adjusting to two kids is going well, and I finally feel like I can squeeze blogging into my schedule. Today I want to share with you my “mom must have oil”.

Everyday I have been using Abundance and Harmony and they are both working wonders for me! I’ll write about that later. The most important oil in my collection right now is digize. In my opinion, every mom should have this oil. Scratch that, EVERYONE should have this oil.

Looking back I don’t know how I survived without Digize after the birth of my first child. Luckily, I found Young Living a few months after she was born. During those first few months I gotta say, things were tough. My life was forever changed after I received my premium starter kit. Words cannot tell you how amazing essential oils are so today I have made a video of Digize in action!

Please note that I am using coconut oil to dilute digize before putting it on my son. Please learn how to dilute essential oils properly before applying them to your baby or children. The correct ratio for babies age nb-6mos is .25 drop:4 tsp

Also, please remember I only recommend Young Living Essential Oils. Using other brands may cause opposite effects or undesired side effects.

What is your mom must have oil??
