The other day I was given a compliment that I was very happy to hear and also meant a great deal to me.
This compliment also made me think, about my life and our recent lifestyle changes. What it came down to is I feel better, I feel healthier and I’ve rid my body of toxins since beginning to use Essential Oils in my (and our) daily life. A lifestyle change where anytime I had pain or aches I reached for the typical over the counter pain relief, now the frequency is much less and Ive been able to manage with my essential oils – yes even the dreaded wine headache ;).
This past year, the world of essential oils has rocked back into existence and into the homes of many of us who not that long ago were skeptical of this “voodo medicine”. I too was previously very skeptical and now embrace these oils and their amazing capabilities.
I’ve been asked a lot lately how we use oils within our home and life. I will admit at first it can feel completely overwhelming! I was there… but it’s honestly not! Does it involve a commitment to a lifestyle change – once you embrace that, you will honestly fall into your new lifestyle quite comfortably.
Consistency is extremely important when it comes to using essential oils, especially to assist with specific. Another thing to remember is that you build your oil collection over time – you do not need or have to, jump in with all of them – unless you absolutely want to 😉
This is my oil collection that I built in 1 year! Many of these oils have been replaced quite a few times due to how often we use them. BUT I am thrilled to say (as I knock on some wood) that our family has had the healthiest year ever this past year! Even with loved ones sick all around us we had very minor coughs or scratchy throats and never once had to take anything synthetic to assist with our well being!
In the late winter my kids and I began taking daily supplements and my metabolism and overall well being received a fantastic boost! There are a lot of supplements on the market, I’ve tried many! When I read about and heard about the research behind the supplements we take, I gave it a shot… 4 months later I will not be giving them up probably ever!
So how do we use oils in our life…
Morning Supplements – They include oils in both my and the kids supplements.
Everyday we use a variety of oils with our kids which help them in their day to day. I also have a small collection that I keep in my office at work which I use throughout the day.
Some of my fav’s at work at my metabolic blend and lemon for my water. I use the Grounding Blend, Invigorating Blend or Protective Blend for my diffuser.
