Those WOW moments………..

A year after I was introduced to doTERRA, I still experience those wow moments………

At 3am this morning I woke with the worst stomach cramps, the monthly curse or whatever you want to call it I felt like my ovaries were going to explode the pain was intense (my pain threshold isn’t high), radiating all the way to my lower back. I eventually got up and applied the Women’s Monthly Blend to my tummy and back – finally relief.

45 minutes later and my youngest child woke crying -she had been stung by a bee and scraped her knee a quick rummage through my girls first aid kit saw me applying Lavender to her foot and spine, Owie Blend (Lavender, Tea Tree and Fractionated Coconut Oil) applied to her knee – a pat on her back and stroking her hair for 5 minutes she rolled over and went to sleep.

Now since I have had 4 hours sleep (I don’t cope well with no sleep – in fact I’m down right grumpy). I will have a coffee today, but what I will also do is use my oils to keep me alert and focused – in particular Peppermint and some citrus blends to keep me uplifted.

 

What has been your WOW moment when using essential oils?

Mumma’s, Multi-tasking and Motivation……..

Yesterday I caught up with two of my Mumma friends to chat about oils, make plans and set goals………..

Over cups of coffee and vegemite toast we collaborated and motivated each other not just about plans for sharing our love for the oils, but how we could use them more in our everyday life. It began with our beautiful Comforting Blend in the diffuser to provide some extra support, then opening and discussing different oils. For me  personally I was excited to smell Tangerine and Cumin (both available in the Summer Scents kit), Tangerine was so light and refreshing and reminded me of warm summer nights, whilst Cumin was so powerful it brought memories of a very dear Indian lady Mumma P who I used to work with and made the most amazing food, I was immediately transported back to all the delights she would cook for me (especially when I was pregnant with my last baby). As we opened the different oils each one of us mentioned how we were or could be using it, making them extremely versatile.

As we discussed workshops we wanted to run, we discussed what would need to happen for that to occur – I needed to not only de-clutter my house but my mind, I need to let go of things that no longer serve me. With that in mind today my printer is running overtime whilst the washing machine does its thing, the diffuser is pumping out the absolutely divine Encouraging Blend. I now have a clear goal of what I want to achieve and what it is going to take to get there.

Halloween and the mother of all meltdowns……………

It’s Halloween and my eldest had been invited to go Trick or Treating with friends, for several reasons she wasn’t allowed to go, she was aware of this before I picked her up from school this afternoon, yet she still tried to convince me to let her go and when she was told no…………… Let’s just say I honestly wished the ground would just open up and swallow me whole, there was hysterical crying.

No amount of explaining was working, thankfully it’s a short trip home and the oils were on hand. I let her scream and cry it out for a good half an hour (whilst deep breathing and remembering something Vanessa Jean had said earlier ” This too shall pass “), then it was a matter of asking her several times to put the oils on in this case it was diluted Women’s Monthly Blend (aka Werewolf Blend) and then a roller of Grounding Blend, Lavender and Wild Orange with fco. Her other go to oil for when she feels upset or anxious is Lavender (1 drop on the roof of her mouth).

Honestly it is so amazing to see how these oils support us both physically and emotionally.

Within minutes I had a calm child, yes she was still sad but she was at least able to be reasoned with.

What are your go to blends for meltdowns (yours or the kids)?
