Positive Sunday Morning Vibes

I love those mornings when I start my day awake and laying still in my bed. Enjoying a tea brought to me by my daughter then making my way to the kitchen.

The gorgeous morning light flooding the kitchen from the new window. Sitting in the warm sunshine in our front window listening to a morning grateful meditation.

Our new Yoga oils in the diffuser – Arise and Align 2 drops each.

Hubby in the kitchen making bacon, eggs with hollandaise sauce for a wonderful brunch.

The day started slow, with our family and down to earth. Grounding me where I need to be and refocus on the priorities ahead for the week. Checking things off the to-do list – with every thing accomplished it brings us a closer to our goals.

How do you like to start your week?

Copaiba Essential Oil | doTERRA

Copaiba essential oil is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree which can grow upwards of more than 100 feet and can be found in tropical South America. Copaiba oil is widely used in cosmetic products including soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes. Since the 16th century, copaiba essential oil has been utilized in traditional health practices by the natives of north and northeastern Brazil. Similar to Black Pepper essential oil, Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings and it can be applied to the skin to promote a clear, smooth complexion. Taken internally, Copaiba essential oil supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems.* Although Copaiba does not contain cannabinoids, the main component caryophyllene may be neuroprotective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits.* It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health.*

Application:
Aromatic, Topical, Internal
Plant Part:
Resin from Copaifera reticulata, officinalis, coriacea, and langsdorffii
Extraction Method:
Steam distillation
Aromatic Description:
Spicy, woody
Main Chemical Component:
Caryophyllene

Benefits of Copaiba Essential Oil:

• Supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive and respiratory systems*
• Powerful antioxidant*
• Helps calm, soothe, and support the nervous system*
• Promotes clear, smooth skin and reduces the appearance of blemishes

Here are some ways you can use Copaiba essential oil:

• Add 1 to 2 drops to water, juice, or tea to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory system.*
• Provides antioxidant support when ingested.*
• Take internally to help soothe and calm the nervous system.*
• Apply topically to help keep skin clean and clear, and to help reduce the appearance of blemishes.

Copaiba Essential Oil – Science

https://www.doterra.com/US/en/blog/science-research-news-copaiba-essential-oil

Copaiba essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the resin collected from Copaifera officinalis, a tree native to Central and South America. It has been described as having a spicy, woody aroma. The primary chemical constituent of Copaiba essential oil is caryophyllene, a bicyclic sesquiterpene that is also found in Black Pepper. While caryophyllene is responsible for some of the bioactive properties of Copaiba, many other properties of the oil are attributed to diterpenes uniquely found in Copaiba.1
For centuries, South Americans have used copaiba resin to promote the health of the respiratory, digestive, urinary, cardiovascular, and immune systems. As reported by the first European settlers of Central and South America, the indigenous American Indians utilized the soothing properties of copaiba oil-resin by applying it both to their newborns and to warriors coming home from battle.1 Current research offers an explanation for the traditional use of Copaiba oil, suggesting that Copaiba essential oil is calming, soothing, and supportive to the skin and nervous system.*6,10,16-22
Recent research on caryophyllene suggests a number of other means by which Copaiba essential oil can support overall health. When taken internally, caryophyllene possesses strong antioxidant properties,2 promotes healthy cellular function,2-4 may help support immune function while supporting overall circulatory health,5-9 and may help support the health of the gastrointestinal tract and colon.*11
Additional research has shown that Copaiba essential oil (with all its constituents) may help keep the mouth, teeth, and gums clean and healthy looking.12,15,23-25 Topically applied Copaiba oil may also help keep the skin clean and clear while helping to reduce the appearance of blemishes.1,13,14,16,27-33 Another interesting experimental research study found that Copaiba taken internally may help to support uterine health and ease menstruation.*26

As a natural substance that can support the health of a number of body systems, Copaiba makes a wonderful addition to the doTERRA collection of essential oils.

We Felt Conflict

I’m pretty excited! 🤗

We still have a few awesome summer weekends planned with the kids!!!

Our kitchen is just about done, completely usable and I am LOVING it!!!

Our basement is coming together on the schedule I was personally aiming for!!!

I’m ordering my supplements for our team cleanse in September, AND

Hubs and I get to spend almost an entire week together… at Convention!!!

It hasn’t always felt this exciting.

For a few months I was feeling very defeated and down. Even the simplest things were very heavy. In a place where it was very hard to even think of, ok what’s next?

Honestly thinking, ‘why can’t we just catch a break’. Enough of the BS over the years, we just want to live a happy and simple life.

I get it people have a variety of challenges in their lives.

For each of us everything is different.

For me this was becoming a heavy weight, on all of us in our family. The renovation was over a year, well over a year and a half actually.

I am so happy to say that we are nearing the end of our renovations!

Our renos will be done in 2017! LOL

It’s been almost 2 years for our whole home renovation – but we’ve put the most important things first – taking the time to spend weekends together as a family.

Hubs and I have become SO much closer. That evening I admitted to him, ‘this has been so crazy hard on me I’m not sure how much more I can take’. It was like a weight lifted. Especially when he said he was feeling the same way. Why the hell couldn’t I have just admitted this sooner.

For whatever reason I didn’t. Neither did he.

We felt conflict.

We could feel it between all of us. We could see our happy, go lucky kids were experiencing conflict in their own happiness.

We put “ourselves” first taking weekends “off” but it wasn’t helping us. Our minds weren’t turning off. We weren’t allowing ourselves permission to relax, enjoy life, have personal time, be truly healthy.

Not only has this renovation experience been an incredible way to truly personalize OUR home and watch it as it transforms in front of our eyes. It’s been an incredible growth journey for all of us.

We could have built, yes, we could have. Thinking of that made me feel crazy anxious. Plus we love our property and are happy making this our own. This is what felt right in my heart.

I knew this would be challenging as well as a growth opportunity. Yes there have been many stressful days. So I told my kids the “kid version” of why. Yes mommy is ticked off, yes mommy feels like this is heavy, mommy is tired. It’s OK to feel sad, we will always have each other, patience is a virtue. To truly show our kids how important communication is. Couples, just like siblings and friends don’t always get along – but we make it work. The kids found this intriguing.

Married people can find marriage itself challenging, add on working, raising a family, housework, past challenges, money, bills… renovating! But we made a promise to each other, to our kids, it may not always be roses but WE will get through it!

What really hit me was a few weeks ago when we had a BBQ dinner with my parents and our kids at our house. Mom came and helped make dinner for us. When my boy said, “Wow mom I can’t remember the last time we had a nice dinner like this!”

He was right. 100% completely right.

We were eating “healthy” but we hadn’t had a sit down meal together at a table in a while. This was significant to our son. He values time together and this was a time he was missing.

By me allowing “this” to control how I was feeling, my kids were feeling just as bad, almost worst.

A couple weeks ago my girl asked me why she has felt so bad for the past month and no one else was. Around the time of the basement flooding. She had been feeling sick and lately was feeling more down, quiet and on edge.

Kids are so sensitive. So am I. I should have known if I was feeling this way they probably were too!

So we talked, she talked more and I simply listened. I made sure she knew this is normal, she wasn’t the only one and that she will be ok.

This was another eye opener for me. My kids need me, they need their mom! They need their dad. They need to know we’ve got their back and it’s OK to feel frustrated. It’s OK to need alone time. It’s OK to choose to do ‘nothing’ to rest our heart and mind.

About a month ago a child told me they thought my kids had such a better life than they did. Make you stop in your tracks heart breaking.

Even among the chaos we were living, feeling and wishing it was ‘over’, this was a happier view for someone else. It’s been tough but we all have had each other and we tell each other numerous times a day, I love you.

This past month has been a gift to us. For all of us. To adjust to a new way of living, in close quarters with little to no personal space – not by our choice.

Everyday is like a rose, so beautiful but sometimes a little more thorny than others ⚘.

Just as much as my hubby needs me and I need him. Our marriage deserves happiness, quality time, a beautiful space to raise our family.

We felt conflict.

We’ve grown immensely.

We will continue to grow and our home as well as our family, is as beautiful as we are divinely meant to be 💞

Always Follow Your Heart | Meat Diffuser Blend

The sun was shining so bright and warm today! Such a gift after the dreary, rainy days we’ve been having.

Tonight, our life is again feeling like its shifting, everyday a little bit more positive and in the right direction.

Hubby checked a few things off his to-do list and it made me think of how lucky I am to have him, how hard he works for our family and how he truly loves putting his personal touch on our home.

It also made me think, actually we are a pretty powerful and awesome duo that our kids have for parents!

Where he excels incredibly well, I also excel in another significant area of our life.

He is very talented with his renovation knowledge, his HVAC and tradesman skills we are blessed to have this opportunity to put even more of a personal touch on our home.

Together as a team, he is wonderful at the hands on creation, building, renovating and repair types of things and I balance that out with my organizational, financial, planning, practical, artistic, photographic and creative knowledge and skills. 😀

Tonight we are a few small steps closer to our dream kitchen being complete. Walking into it tonight, felt very different. Lighter, airy and best of all… US!

It truly isn’t about having brand new or perfect, its about making this house OUR home. Putting our own personal touch in every single room (sometimes twice lol) and truly feeling the transition, appreciating our hard work and the value of a dollar.

I am beyond thrilled to be experiencing this and am crazy excited to watch our transformation as we continue to fill this home with our love and personalities.

This evening I asked my son to put in a diffuser blend. He immediately grabbed 3 oils out of the box, then looked at me thinking before he told me which oils they were, giving it away that he ‘loves the smell of the meat oils’. I admit I instantly said ‘No’…When he asked why I could not think of a single reason other than ‘I don’t want the house smelling like the meat spices’… ‘Why Mommy’…

I couldn’t give him a logical answer – so in he put the 3 oils that he chose.

Oregano, Thyme and Cumin

Completely not what you were expecting right, they taste amazing, however the smell as a diffuser blend is a little unconventional 😉

Then it hit me! What are the emotional uses for these oils?

I had remembered back in the fall he was drawn to these oils and we had noticed a shift.

So I read about them.

Thyme – The Oil of Releasing & Forgiving. One of the most powerful cleansers of the emotional body and assists in addressing trapped feelings which have been buried a long time. Reaching deep within the body and soul, searching for unresolved negativity. Thyme brings to the surface old, stagnant feelings. Particularly helpful in treating the toxic emotions of hate, rage, anger and resentment, which cause the heart to close.

Oregano – The Oil of Humility & Non-Attachment. Oregano cuts through the fluff of life and teaches individuals to do the same. It removes blocks, clears negativity and cuts away negative attachments. Oregano is a powerful oil and may even be described as forceful or intense. Helping release rigidly opinions and belief systems. Oregano encourages true spirituality by inviting the soul to live in non-attachment.

(Emotions and Essential Oils 2015 )

Cumin – Cumin is commonly thought to support a person who has gone through some form of abuse. It can help you to clear the emotional and physical pain you may be holding onto, as well as provide an emotional barrier or boundary as you examine, process, and health the trauma. Cumin oil being a digestive oil leads to a clue as to how it supports us, by working with the solar plexus center of the body. It can help you find your inner strength again, even tapping into anger to allow you to defend yourself, push through attacks, and not let your abuser win.

This transition for us has admittedly been much harder on all of us  than what we thought, throw in our basement flood and the emotions have been feeling heavy, weighed down and negative. Its easy to fall into the negative side of things – why us, why now, why not a year ago (haha before our renovations), when will we catch a break, why cant we just be done with renos. There is clearly a bigger picture, a twist in our story that if anything is helping us all grow.

Tonight has been one of our most “normal” evenings at home as a family that its been in a very long time. We were still doing things that needed to get done, but I know I feel a new level of peace and relaxation and I even saw it in the kids when I first got home!

We are almost there!!! ❤
