As a mum now to an 11 month old - Iife has became kinda crazy! She's on the move and nothing is stopping her now....
It is an incredible journey watching her develop and as her daily curiosity deepens my time to myself is somewhat non existent. So with that said... 'me time' is short and sweet. But I have found a quick and loving solution for myself!
Using my DoTERRA essential oils allows me to feel present - this pure bliss, which I have know discovered is called an 'aromatic dressing'!
This process is my reality check - knowing that I am acknowledging myself which I truly love.
So depending on my mood or the weather (I know right, but the weather seriously affects me) I choose my oils that will coincide with this feeling and I take the time to rub my essential oils with coconut oil or almond oil into my skin. I have found that the best time to do this is after my shower, my pores are open and my skin loving accepts all the goodness that is on offer. This aromatic dressing, honestly gives me a heavenly experience knowing that I am doing something sweet and gentle for myself in such a short amount of time. I have even found with Honor, she too loves her aromatic dressings of lavender and frankincense before bedtime. I must admit when time is short I often rub her bunny that she adores so much with some lavender to induce a peaceful sleep!!! I truly am thankful that she is finally sleeping through the night and I can honestly say that the beautiful aromatic love of lavender sends her into a peaceful sleep.
The gently process of using essential oils has become a daily ritual for me in more ways then one. I'm constantly learning and discovering the incredible benefits for using essential oils not only for the health and well being of myself but also for my family and I think this is such a beautiful thing to offer. To be in tune with the world around me these days as a mum is just a process that needs to happen. SO you will probably find in the next few months quite a few references to how I use my oils especially for traveling and general day to day living - I feel that I need to share this epiphany that has dawned - to share the power of Essential Oils...Have a great day! :) xx
