I have been trying to get to a Spirited Children’s Workshop by Nat, The Oil Nurse for sometime, yesterday I finally got my chance when I took my youngest with me to experience the lovely pearls of wisdom and experience that Nat brings to her workshop.
Let me say first and foremost what I loved most was that Nat is totally down to earth, she calls a spade a spade, Nat reminds me of some of my best girlfriends they all can be blunt but have the most pure of hearts and intentions.
So why did I go??? Well as a single mumma of four girls (who I have raised to be strong and independent) I felt it was a workshop that would really benefit us as a family exploring the oils and how they work for us. My girls have been through a lot in the last couple of years, combined with 5 females in the house, all with very different personalities and patience levels life was starting to get interesting and at times this mumma felt she was going nuts. I wanted to empower the girls to make their own choices (with guidance in relation to safety).
There were cute names to help remember how to apply the oils, which reminds me of the scenes from Karate Kid ” Wax on, Wax off” in all seriousness though once explained it made perfect sense in the morning we needed to wake the body up and in the evening we want the body to shut down, we also wanted to remind the brain there is 2 sides and that they must interact.
One of the things that Nat suggests is letting your children use the oils, children have an amazing intuition of what they need. I often do this with Miss G as she has shown the most interest in the oils, she will pick out a blend for the diffuser in her room I will often think WTF? but then when I read about the emotions these oils are supporting it makes perfect sense. Last night I did it with Miss B the first oil she picked out of the box was the monthly womens blend (in our house this is referred to as the Werewolf oil), now Miss B is only 9 but is going through some changes I love the fact that she knows her body well enough to know when she needs to apply this one, this particular oil is the one oil that she reminds me every month we need to have.
Attending the workshop was a fantastic opportunity to hear about Nat’s experiences and also gain access to some of her recipe blends not only for our Spirited Children but their Spirited Mumma’s as well.
I am looking forward to the next workshop and will be trying a few of these blends out to see which works well for us.
