Energy

All of you who have children know how taxing the first few months can be for parents. Adding a 3 FullSizeRender (3)year old to mix is a recipe for energy depletion. It has prompted me to take extra care of myself to help with energy.

There are a few things that I use every day

Lemon Essential Oil in my water every day. This keeps my body cleansed and energized every day.print-lemon

En-R-Gee Essential Oil – I use En-R-Gee every day, especially in the afternoon

FullSizeRender (4)FullSizeRender (2)I apply it on my wrists and my temples. It is a blend of different oils that is made by Young Living. It is also awesome to diffuse. It is uplifting without the caffeine, which I cannot tolerate. You can see a NingXia Red bottle in the background  :-)

NingXia Red – What can I say about NingXia Red. You know my obsession with NingXia Red. This is a drink that we have every day. Just 1-2 oz is all that is needed to keep your immune system well, keep energy level up and maintain over all wellness. It is a drink infused with essential oils that is just amazing.

Oils For Meditation

Meditation is an important aspect for me to keep my sanity and to connect with the Divine. As always, there are oils that can help facilitate this process. Connecting with Spirituality / Divinity also facilitates finding your purpose on this planet, it also allows for your higher self to guide you through life. That way, it can help define your vision.

Some of my favorite oils for this are Frankincense, Palo Santo and Hong Kuai.

frankincense LaminateYou might have heard of Frankincense from the biblical times. Not only is this fabulous for meditation, it is an amazing immune booster as well as supports the skin. It is also great for visualization ( if you are into things like that)

I love applying it to the base of my brain stem. Another favorite use is to apply it to my son’s spine when he is having a hard moment. Try it if you have a toddler figuring out emotions :)

Palo Santo has very quickly become one of my palo-santofavorites. It is also known as a spiritual oil. It not only facilitates spiritual development, but also is known for its emotionally grounding properties.

I apply it on my heart center when my emotional system needs some love.

 

 

 

HongKuaiTree

 

The last one is Hong Kuai. I have personally not used it as yet and I am very excited to try it soon.

It has been used for centuries for temples and shrines. It has one of the most highest content of sesquiterpenes. It helps with clarity, confidence and transformation.

You can read more about it from Dr. Cole Woolley who is a scientist, researcher and write.

Oils For Everything – Welcoming 2017

You know when they say there is an oil for everything, there is an oil for everything. That includes for the vision you want to create for the upcoming year. Emotional release or transforming oils are a big part of my day to day routine. I, especially love them probably because I am a therapist and see the impact of it on my clients when they use it in my office or when I use it on myself.

A few days ago, my husband and I decided to do something different on our bi-monthly date night. These date nights have been wonderful for our relationship as it gives us time to reevaluate what needs attention in our life. Yesterday, we decided that we needed to do a Vision Board for our life – individually and together. To do that, we started to write down the different categories in our lives that will need attention especially with a new baby coming. Setting a foundation for inviting something different is such IMG_0507an important piece of growth and development.

So, we started talking about our goals, vision and dreams for our lives in 2017. It was so much fun dreaming together. Ofcourse, we had to start by applying Envision EO, a blend that Young Living makes before we started.

We divided up our life into 6 categories inspired by Oola.  Our categories were Family, Career, Finance, Spirituality, Health and Fun. It is definitely going to be an ongoing process but dreaming together as a couple is such an important aspect of growth.

Don’t they say that dreaming is the first step to achieving your goal. When your vision feels impossible to achieve, that is when you know you are on to something. I love that.

Other oils that would be good to use in case this inspires you to do this either on your own or with your spouse are

Abundance, Release, Transformation, Into the Future, Surrender, Motivation, Magnify Your Purpose, Gratitude, Live Your Passion to name a few.

AbundanceWhen ever I use an oil, I always set an intention for what I am using it for. I love applying Abundance every day and setting an intention for abundance in all areas in our lives. Abundance is not just for material things, but can be for having more patience, more kindness in your life – what ever you want abundance for…SurrenderGraphic

 

 

Surrender and Gratitude go hand in hand. Life without gratefulness is meaningless. I will often apply Surrender and Gratitude to my heart center.

 

Gratitude

 

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend” By Melody Beattie

 

 

MagnifyYourPurpose

Magnify Your Purpose is a good one to apply on your third eye and brain stem and ask the universe to reveal your purpose in life. Everyone is born with gifts that the world can benefit from. Asking for guidance for something like that is very helpful.

I would highly encourage you to read more about each of these oils.

Chemical Free Life

You are probably tired of hearing me asking everyone to read labels and to make sure you have a chemical free home. But I can’t help write about this especially because studies have shown that new born babies have up to 200 chemicals found in their umbilical cord. It starts that early and I am prepared to do anything I can do to spread the word of easily changing your home from chemical to non chemical.

The skin is the largest organ and some of the products that are used daily like washing machine detergent, hand soap, shampoo, soap if non toxic can create a build up of toxins in your body leading to diseases and illnesses in the long run.

chemicalFreeHome

One of the main reasons I am so diligent about this is because my husband is a cancer survivor and I want to make sure that we live a chemical free home ( as much as possible as it is hard to avoid absorbing all the toxins that we are constantly exposed to)

The one problem I had often run into was that the non toxic products would not work well and I had to use a LOT of the product to get the clean. That ThievesCleanerswas till I found all the non toxic products from Young Living  😆 And it works  well for such a small amount of usage. You have to experience it to believe it. Now, we have replaced all the household products including soaps , shampoos, household cleaners, hand soap etc with Young Living products so that we can live a toxin free life style.

You can make small changes in your home if you are overwhelmed about where to start. For instance, how many of you are aware of the chemicals present in dryer sheets. Yes, dryer sheets.  I would highly encourage you all to ditch the dryer sheets in the dryer. It generally contains chemicals found to be hormone disrupters. Have you used the organic wool balls with lavender eo in your dryer? If you prefer to not use wool, just add a few drops of your favorite oil directly to the wet clothes in the dryer. So, simple actions like these can help support your family from being inundated with toxins.

DryerBalls

You can read more about how harmful some of the products are from here and here.

Environmental Working Group is a great organization where you can check the the safety of your products

Now, I can rest in peace knowing that I can control what comes into our home and how to help our family live a chemical free life.

Do share your ways of having a chemical free home #chemicalfreehome # toxinfree.

As a special offer to try out some of the chemical free products from Young Living, I am giving away samples of either the Household Cleaner or Lavender Shampoo to 3 people. The only criteria is to give feedback about the product within a month of using it.
