I truly love renovations. I really do. It provides the opportunity to live in a space, figure out how and what you actually need in it and then customize it to suit you! Every single house we’ve lived in, we’ve renovated. Our 2nd one not as intense – much more simple of paint and flooring. Our first and current were massive reno’s – gut down to the studs – kind of reno’s!
But if I can be completely honest… I really only like the before and after. The in between gives me all kinds of anxiety… hello drywall dust – it gets everywhere!!! Its not just the reno and drywall dust though that hit me, its also the fact that everything that was in that room… had to come out and go somewhere else for the time being. Also that it changes our “routine” within the house. I am however, very grateful to my hubby who is my reno god! 😉
Thankfully we are completely able to plastic off all openings to contain as much dust as possible and Ive got my diffuser going to bring some calm and happiness to me 😉 I am always so intrigued when I read over the emotional benefits of each of the oils I use.
Amavi, Neroli and Magnolia Ive applied ON me! I just love the way Neroli and Magnolia are so calming to any anxious type feelings. Without even looking in any books these 3 jumped out at me.
Neroli and Magnolia are floral oils, which honestly surprised me as Im not overly fond of floral’s however these two I simply LOVE!
Neroli is the Oil of Shared Purpose and Partnership. I love reading about it in the Essential Oils and Emotions book. It explains this oil as unifying and stabilizing. Also calming, promoting harmony in changing dynamics, acceptance, growth, fidelity, empathy, patience, forgiveness and resilience. This oil also supports unity, cooperation, tolerance, perseverance and kindness encouraging acceptance.
Magnolia is similar to Neroli as it is calming and relaxing and also soothing to anxious feelings. Magnolia flowers have been used to help create a sense of balance within the body.
Amavi was part of the Father’s Day collection and I just love it! “This unique blend is made of the essential oils Buddha Wood, Balsam Fir Wood, Black Pepper Fruit, Hinoki, and Patchouli. Budda Wood oil is currently exclusive to the Amavi blend, and is the only way to experience the unique aroma of Buddha Wood from doTERRA. The grounding aroma of Amavi synergistically works with each individual’s chemistry to create an elevated personal fragrance experience. It works behind the scenes to calm, uplift, and refocus your mind. In part because of the Black Pepper content, Amavi Touch can calm your unwanted nerves or anxious feelings.” (Source doterra.com)
The oils I put in the diffuser are Clary Sage, Clemintine and Peppermint. I literally just looked at my wall shelf and then reached intuitively for oils!
Clary Sage is the Oil of Clarity and Vision. This oil is supportive with changing perceptions and giving courage to see the truth. Clary sage encourages individuals to remain open to new ideas and new perspectives while opening the soul to new possibilities and experiences.
Clemintine is an oil that we do not have available all of the time, however didn’t stop me from using it today in this blend. It has an uplifting scent to the mind and emotions, also supportive to any anxious feelings.
Peppermint is the Oil of a Buoyant Heart by bringing joy and buoyancy to the heart and soul. Invigorating to the body, mind and soul to let go of fear and be happy. Peppermint can assist an individual in staying on the surface of emotional issues. Positive properties are buoyant, optimistic, relieved and strength to face emotional pain.
I am diffusing 3 drops each of Clary Sage and Clemintine with 2 drops of Peppermint. It smells amazing and given these emotional benefits will be very supportive during the destruction today!
The kids and I hung out at the arena for a bit this aft as hubby got started. The less chaos I hear and see the better 😉 As I am hearing lots of ripping, cutting… I am SO thankful for these oils helping me stay nice and chill while hubby is doing his thing… I am so excited to see our next vision come to life!
