How I Use Essential Oils Daily

I think one of the hardest things about switching to natural products, essential oils or a healthier lifestyle in general is fear. Fear of being overwhelmed, fear of not knowing enough, fear of not being able to succeed at the switch. And it is totally okay and understandable because for some people, making such lifestyle changes can be a big jump. And in my opinion, the first step of success is just making the jump to begin with. 

I love to share how I use essential oils daily because it helps others realize just how easily they can to. Why do I love essential oils? Well there are many reasons, but the big one is that they just make me feel better. I can tell when I'm off routine how much my body is affected (kinda like how I feel sluggish right now because of all the holiday crap I keep eating). And yes - I am not perfect and fall off of routine sometimes. Moving recently halted my routine and I have felt that big time. The best I felt in awhile was right after having my baby this summer and it just so happens my oily routine was out of this world. I felt energetic, free, joyful and full of life. And really, what postpartum mother can typically say she feels that way after a new baby (her third baby at that)? I'm telling you my friend, these little drops of Heaven do wonderful things. 

Using essential oils will eventually become a routine for you. Or perhaps you haven't even started yet but you're curious about them. Well, this graphic below can still help you see just how easily I can use nature to support me, rather than having to turn to other items first. You can see just how easy my routine is and how there's wiggle room for anything really. 

The New Year is quickly approaching and I have many health goals that I want to achieve. But for me, I know I am already doing the best I can to cut the chemicals from our home - how about you? Is it something that you desire to do? Something that you're curious about? I would love to chat with you! 

Make this New Year the best and healthiest one yet. Don't fret over the pounds you still have, don't fret over the fact that you only get to the gym one time a week and don't make some ridiculous resolution to lose a ton of weight that is just going to be too hard to do. Just make a resolution to be healthy with small changes. 

After all, small changes lead to big things.

A Louisiana Snow Day

We live in south Louisiana where snow is a rare treat. And by rare treat, I mean like every ten years or so. In fact, the last time I recall us getting anything close to this was in 2008. I went to bed Thursday night hopeful that the weather man would be somewhat accurate since my four year old overheard there *might* would be snow and I desperately wanted just as bad as her for him to be right. 

All throughout the night I would look out of the windows and check the views as I woke up to feed the baby. Each view showed more signs of white, but I could have never imagined what we would wake up to that next morning. My husband left for work, and in the midst of my sleeping and hearing him off, I knew it must not have been too much if he was going to the office still. 

To wake up and see the beauty that laid before me had me crying tears of joy. Tears of joy because it was breathtakingly beautiful, tears of joy because this is our first Christmas in our first home and most of all, tears of joy because my children would have one of the best days ever and they don't even know it yet.

I hope that we can relive days like this more often, but I know that in the south, that's a rare chance. But here's to hoping for more winter magic ahead of us.

I am pretty sure that diffusing essential oils during the holiday season is quite possibly the BEST time ever to diffuse essential oils. Goodbye toxic Christmas candles and say hello to nature's goodness! 

There are so many yummy recipes you can come up with based on the oils you have or perhaps you're in the market to grab some oils to make your home smell like a fancy Christmas store. Either way, play with your oils to test and try out different recipes. Use our guide here for some great recipes! 

There's nothing better than spreading a little Christmas cheer. Did you know that your sense of smell is the fastest way to support or effect the emotional part of your brain? When you inhale an oil, the tiny particles absorb in your mucosa, then straight into a layer that delivers them right to the limbic system, the place where our emotions and memories are all stored. This is how certain smells bring us right back to childhood memories! This is also how Young Living focuses on emotional blends by helping our bodies improve a frequency or experience a particular emotion that we may wish to feel. 

THIS is how oils can help you daily. Whether it is because you want your home to smell like it has a real Christmas tree that brings you straight back to your childhood, or because you need some emotional support throughout the day - this is how you can use oils to improve your lifestyle. 

But enough about that. Go and diffuse some oils so your home will smell like Christmas heaven. And if you're not an oiler yet but ready to jump in, then visit more here and sign up here to join my team and private communities. Let's get some Christmas time cheer into your home!

Wishing you a wonderful and Merry Holiday Season!
