Enhance your Soulful Self Care with Essential Oils
I am so grateful for essential oils and how they have supported my journey in health and happiness. I remember first learning about oils back in 2006 when I was in the throws of the onset of my panic attacks.
I was struggling to get to sleep at night…my mind would just not shut down. If I did finally fall asleep most of the time it didn’t last, I would often awaken after just a few hours to more monkey mind. Ughh! I was exhausted and felt so out of control. Knowing that lack of sleep was also a trigger to panic…it was like a viscous cycle. I was desperate for a solution that did not include sleeping pills.
Luckily, I read an article discussing how lavender essential oil was useful in helping to relax and with sleep. I was so relieved to find a more natural and gentle way to help me sleep. I started using lavender oil every night to help me sleep. I created a spray bottle and sprayed my pillow and the air above my bed. I rubbed the oil in a lotion on the back of me neck. It worked! I was so grateful. I was finally able to calm down and find rest. I then began use lavender every time I had to fly (which was frequent in my job) to help curb my anxiety. These oils were such a gift to me as I went through my journey to becoming panic free.
So that was the beginning of my partnership with these amazing, healing and supportive plant oils! Today I use essential oils every single day and in multiple ways to support me and my family’s health and well being. They are part of my Soulful Self Care lifestyle.
Knowing for myself how powerful and supportive essential oils (and our companies many non-toxic lifestyle products) have been and continue to be in my own life…I can’t help but share them with others so they could also experience the benefits of these gifts of nature.
