It feels like these days we are all trying to feel better. More energized. Less stressed. More in control of our health and wellness. I have a lot of resources in my toolkit to support my health and wellness but my FAVORITE is using essential oils. Since adding oils into my daily rituals I have released 5 pounds, attracted more aligned clients into my practice and created a brand-new book all while raising three little girls. Of course, I use my support team but I credit essential oils with raising my energetic vibration and giving me the energy and focus to do everything that I do AND feel amazing.
Essential Oils are a concrete reminder of our ability to move into the present moment and their energy connects us to the energy of the planet through plants. Each oil contains specific chemical compounds that can be used to facilitate healing and emotional well-being, otherwise known as aromatherapy.
I chose doTERRA because of the quality of the oils, the specific blends they create and because the company is committed to making the world a better place by supporting small farmers and using sustainable practices. They also have a non-profit called, Helping Hands that works to end sex trafficking and take care of women and children all over the world. If you choose to use other oils that is totally fine, but please make sure they are therapeutic grade. The doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in their essential oils that would reduce their efficacy. doTERRA even goes a step further, putting all their products and the packaging through a battery of tests to ensure a long and effective shelf-life. This protocol ensures potency, purity, and consistency batch to batch.
Here are my 5 favorite essential oils and oil blends.
This is a joyful blend that I use when I am trying to raise my mood or if I am feeling down about something that happened during the day. It is a great one to diffuse in the morning as it sets an intention for a joy filled day.
I use peace when I am trying to wind down or have been feeling anxious. It is also great to shift the energy in your home to be more relaxed and can signal that it’s time to get ready for sleep.
Balance is great when I need some grounding. Sometimes I get a lot of ideas around what I need to take action on and balances’ earthy blend grounds me and allows me to wait before taking action.
I use On Guard daily to ward against illness and as an all-natural cleaner in my home. I do my best to reduce my toxic load so that my body can function at an optimal level.
Slim and Sassy is my go to when I am having a craving for junk food. It is also wonderful when something BIG is happening in my life as it aids in metabolizing life experiences.
