Hormone Help………….

There is a lot going on in my life right now, no different to anyone else I am sure. This year I vowed I would start making some changes (nothing drastic), just small changes to the way I look at my health and body. It could be that turning the big 40 this year helped with the inspiration.

I started the year off by adding our metabolic blend to my water daily, it’s amazing how much that alone has helped with my sugar cravings, to change it up a bit I’ve also invested in a Soda Stream but instead of using the syrups we are just adding a drop of essential oil, my favourite at the moment is Lime, it also works well with Lemon, Wild Orange, Grapefruit.

I’ve also started adding MACA powder to my baking, I did try drinking it with water this morning and whilst it wasn’t bad I think it would be better in a smoothie.

Probably the biggest change is taking care of my hormones and giving them support (lets face it, in a house with 5 females the hormones can be a little crazy). Kerry Harper from This Mothers Real has a great blend for a hormone support.

Not only does this blend smell amazing, my skin feels nourished but I felt so calm and relaxed after. Aromatically dressing is a great way to reconnect with your body, so often we rush to hide our bodies in shame, I find by aromatically dressing not only do I get the benefits of the oils but deep down I become more at peace with the way my body looks from the stretch marks and jelly belly that nutured four amazing girls to my short legs that aim to keep me grounded to my boobs (my favourite part of my body). As the girls get older and start aromatically dressing I believe it will help them have a positive and loving relationship with their bodies without the body shame we see so much in media. Vanessa Jean from Food Alchemy does a fantastic video on Aromatic Dressing .

Chocolate lovers heaven………….

It’s no secret I have a sweet tooth and chocolate is a particular favourite of mine, I used to have no issue eating the entire block but not any more,  well not since discovering how easy it was to make Raw chocolate.

The other night I was at my good friend Kylie from Valley Esentials place and she wanted to make raw chocolate for a workshop that night. It was about 5:45 and guests were due at around 6:30 no stress a quick search of the Doterra site found the following recipe .

I can honestly say it was so quick and easy to do, not too mention absolutely bloody delicious that I have made another batch today with a few changes to the ingredients mainly because I didn’t have some of the ingredients.

 

Ingredients

3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1 cup coconut oil, liquified
Pinch of Sea Salt
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 drops Cinnamon Bark oil
14 drops Lime essential oil
6 drops Black Pepper essential oil
1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp MACA powder (for more information on the benefit of MACA powder go here )
Chopped Goji Berries
Chopped Pistachios

Method

Mix all ingredients together
Pour into your moulds or onto a tray
Refridgerate

 

This is so yummy and satisfying that I find 2 pieces is enough for me. I will be working on this recipe for my Adults after Dark workshop, to get tickets please go here .

 

It must be time for a cuppa now and a piece of chocolate.

New Year, New Beginnings………

This post is a little late as my delightful children decided that my beloved MacBook would like a drink of milk.

And whilst I may have initially may have cursed and then inhaled the bottle of Grounding Blend, it really was a blessing in disguise. It has forced me to remember I need to back things up but also I need to declutter not only the house but my mind, which is why for most of December and January I have had limited internet access.

It was also a great to take time to sit-back and reflect on the year that was and to map out the year to come. There are a few challenges in this year ahead and it’s still one step at a time. This year I’ve decided to focus on sharing my love of the oils more frequently and consistently. I’ve also started to meditate more consistently to help relax and clear the mind, thanks to Adam from Crystal Connections I’m discovering how crystals can help with my overall health and well being.

Starting to journal regularly so at the end of the year I can reflect on how far I have come in my journey

This year also sees the launch of the new logo for Mumma’s Essentials (but that is a whole other post).

I hope 2017 brings you all that you desire.
