It’s not that I never believed in essential oils, but I basically had a very casual relationship with them. It all started with Lavender. On my temples to relax, diluted with water and sprayed on my pillows at night. We then got a little more intimate as I started adding drops to my epsom salt bath to relive sore muscles and completely relax the body & mind. It was good. Simple. No strings attached.
A few years later while getting a massage Eucalyptus was introduced to me. The massage therapist suggested I put some drops in the shower and create a steam to open up the airways. I figured well, why not give it a try, I could have more than one oil in my life.
Then came a tough loss of saying goodbye to my sweet dog, Louie. While I got many beautiful condolence cards, flowers and sentiments, a friend from California sent me something very special….Serenity. A blend of oils to help you really relax. A combo of lavender, marjoram, chamomile, ylang yang, with the warming aromas of Hawaiian sandalwood and vanilla bean. Now this relationship took me to a whole new place. I was in love. The aromas are incredible added to my diffuser.
She also sent me something else, digestZen, as she knew I had some digestive issues. It’s a combo of Ginger, Peppermint, Tarragon, Fennel, Caraway, Coriander and Anise. Is it possible, could I have another love in my life? Yes! A a little rubbed on my stomach is like magic.
What I think I love most, is the holistic alternatives that these oils provide. Living a healthy life encompasses so many different avenues for me, nutrition, exercise, balance, mental well being, spirituality…..and the oils fit so perfectly.
A few weeks ago the amazing Kristin, www.stuftmama.com, shared on her blog a promotion I couldn’t pass up on with doTERRA. I already knew that two of my loves, Serenity and digestZen, were doTERRA oils. Well, I jumped onboard! While I’m still a novice at this, my repertoire is growing as are welcoming some new loves into my life, like Breathe and Peppermint. I’m doing everything I can to learn the millions of ways they can be incorporated into my life. And, my husband is even excited about them!
