Self-care first is not just in case of an emergency!
Essential Oils, Health, Self-Discovery

Self-care first is not just in case of an emergency!

When we fly the flight attendant tells us in the event of an emergency place your mask on first and then assist others. Self-care first is not just in case of an emergency! Self-care should be part of our daily routine, but too often it is not. 

I used to think that self-care was about personal hygiene, but it is not. Nor is it one size fits all. It does however include proper rest, nutrition, exercise, but most important is about doing things for yourself that bring you joy and rejuvenate you physically and mentally. It can be journaling, spending time with friends, reading, dancing, meditation, etc. I think you get the idea. 

This month as I have been focusing on pursuing kindness I realized that kindness need to be focused inward as well as outward. I need to be kind to myself as I set the tone of how others treat me.  When I am not kind to myself and my focus is on taking care of others my reserves got low, I burnt out.

This morning as I was mowing our lawn (which I love to do) I once again remembered how important nature is to my self-care. When I was a child I would lay in the grass and recharge. It wasn’t until 15 or so years ago that I learned about grounding. (Grounding refers to connecting with the Earth’s surface electrons by walking barefoot outside, laying or sitting in the grass  that transfer the energy from the ground into the body.)

I was then prompted to record a Release and Receive Grounding to share. 

Essential Oils is also part of my daily self-care. They are key to supporting my emotional and physical well-being. doTerra Balance Grounding Bend is key to my daily self-care routine. I place it on my feet each morning to support my grounding. I also use Frankincense daily to support my prayer and meditation. With essential oils I am able to support my emotions aromatically throughout the day. 

Having a AM/PM routine that includes self-care scheduled is what I find works best for me. Here just a sample:

The key to self-care is finding what you need to rejuvenate physically and mentally and how best to make it part of your routine. Don’t try to make drastic changes all at once or you will not stick to it. 

As I take care of myself first with proper rest, nutrition, exercise, and fun, I have more to give others. Therefore, self-care first is not just in case of an emergency!

Back to School Basics????

Back to School Basics???

School is not just about academics, it is important for social health and emotional health. Virtual Illusion: Comparing Student Achievement and Teacher and Classroom Characteristics in Online and Brick-and-Mortar Charter Schools states, “Social interaction among children in grades K-12 is important not only for emotional wellbeing, but also for children’s language, communication, social, and interpersonal skills.” As we abruptly went to distant learning at the end of last year I saw the toll it took on all of my children from my youngest in Elementary School to my oldest at college. 

Back to School Basics????

As we start this school year it looks nothing like the last 13 years of sending my children to school. Whatever going back to school looks like for you and your children I honor your choice. If your anything like me it was not an easy decisions. I am still questioning some of the decisions we have made as a family.  

Our School District is schooled to return on August 24th and there are still many unknowns. I have not purchase any school supplies because we have not received any supply list. Most of the School Districts, Schools and Teacher have been focusing most of their time on following CDC guidelines and creating school safety plans than preparing to teach. 

As a parent I am choosing to focus what I can do to prepare my children to go back to school. I am preparing them with the tools to support their immune system. This starts with healthy eating, proper supplementation  including doTERRA On Guard+ Softgels,  exercise, as well as proper rest and stress management. It also includes removing toxins from our home by using natural cleaning and hygiene products. And last but most important is washing our hands or sanitizing has because more routine to better support our immune system. 

I am also preparing my children with the tools to support their emotional health. It also starts with healthy physical habits just like our immune system. Having daily discussions one on one and as a family about emotions and events of the day is very beneficial. Essential Oils are key in our home for emotional support and we use the book Essential Emotions to help us determine the best oil to support the emotion. doTerra’s website also has great resource emotional support including: Creating Love & Connection, Calming Anxious Feelings, and Lifting Discouragement.

Back to School is not basic this year! May your family stay healthy physically and emotionally.

Cedarwood

There’s nothing quite like Cedarwood to help you unwind at the end of the day. Did you know that Cedarwood essential oil was considered by the Sumerians to stem from the Tree of Life?

Cedarwood encourages tranquility, peace, and stillness. Plus, it keeps the pests away.

Did you know that many people use Cedar oil for skin due to its purifying abilities?

Cedarwood oil includes the main sesquiterpene constituents cedrene, and thujopsene, which help improve the appearance of skin. It helps your inside as well as your outside, promoting healthy-looking skin.

You can easily incorporate Cedarwood oil into your daily facial routine by simply adding one to two drops of Cedarwood oil to your facial toner or moisturizer for added clarifying properties. The cleansing properties of Cedarwood oil can also help improve the appearance of skin imperfections. Cedarwood also has properties that help soothe the mind and body. The warm, woody scent can create a calm, relaxing environment when used aromatically or topically. Diffusing Cedarwood oil in your home, office, or workspace can help promote feelings of confidence, self-esteem, and evoke feelings of wellness.

 

  • Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.

A Healer in Every Home

When I was first introduced to Essential Oils I laughed and said, “I am not a Hippy. I don’t believe in that kind of stuff.” It was not until I was recovering from a knee surgery that I final agreed to try Deep Blue because the stuff from my doctor was not relieving the symptoms I was experiencing. I was amazing at how quickly I got relief. I started using more and more of the doTerra products and learning the science behind them.

I had been using them in my home for a few years when Ronai Brumett shared her experience with me and asked way I was not a doTerra Wellness Advocate and getting my oils at better then wholesale. That is what brought me to this point.

I wanted to help other discover what I had, which is that with a book and a box of doTerra Essential Oils I could support my families physical and emotional well-being.

Holistic Health Practitioner, Laura Jacobs’ motto is “A Healer in Every Home”. Her motto has resonated with me for years, but I have not known how to share that message. So, I became a Certified Essential Oil Coach, I thought it would become easier for me to support others in understanding how to use Essential Oils to support their well-being.

My goals is share doTerra and the benefits of Essential Oils with as many people as possible through sampling, wellness consultations, and classes. I want to empower families like Ronai did for me. I want there to be a Healer in every home!

I have an amazing team of doTerra Wellness Advocates that also love to teach and support others. We are excited to help others as Ronai says, use doTerra daily. Check out her DO YOU DOTERRA DAILY? posts.

doTerra has an amazing Empowered Life Series to support continuing education. One of my favorites is Empowered Life Series: Mood and Emotional Health, because I truly believe that our emotional health effects our physical health.
