i was chatting with a friend the other day
about my essential oil heart eyes.
she asked, if i really did use them all time?
she wondered how i was using them?
and for what specifically?
i gushed a bit (okay, maybe a lot).
i told her i'd send her a note and show her some of the ways.
i thought it might be fun to share with you guys too.
so with a cup of coffee in hand
and that oily combo up there diffusing in the background
i'll share my 1st oily instabits.
peppermint & stress away for productivity & tackling to-do lists.
|lemon oil in my water...refreshing and boosting.|
helps make sure i drink lots more water too!
|frankincense & lavender...reflection, relaxation and restfulness.|
making bed times extra sweet...and chills we parents out too at end of long day.
|brain boost...peppermint, lemon and copaiba for my girl's backpack.|
i have one too in my desk - a favorite break in between conference calls & car pools.
|chill out combo... frankincense & copaiba diffused on a rainy afternoon.|
just so warm & inviting - and keeps us focused & thoughtful.
|pollen punch...lemon, lavender, peppermint & copaiba.|
clearing my allergy eyes & foggy - smells so so good too.
|germs be gone...thieves, purification & lemon.|
rolled on little feet & backs to boost immunity...
and EVERY time i heard that a classmate puked at school.
|cough care...r.c. & peppermint.|
a great combo for battling that pesky cold air cough that bennett
gets after early spring lax practices under the lights.
|gus is cute & is spoiled...purification in the living room.|
one of the kids favorite chores is spraying the couches...and it's chemical free!
|lots oflaundry love...lavender & purification (lots of other combos too).|
an easy transition towards chemical free laundry...diy detergent & dryer balls.
|upset tummies...digize on the belly helps keep the icks at bay.|
and yes...i took a pic of oils & our potty.
|tweaked ankle...panaway for those days when i get a bit too competitive on the turf.|
this has been a major pain reliever...that smells delightful.
|my most favorite mama time-out combo...lavender & stress away.|
pause. roll. pause. breath. pause. feel. pause. clear. pause. reset.
|hike & tension relief...peppermint, pan away & copaiba.|
originally for wes' weekend camping backpack,
but now he keeps it in the console of his truck for a lil' commute recoup after day in the office.
|a lil' something for a mama w/babe in belly.|
one for nausea & rest. one for immunity & germs.
and one of my new favorite ways to spread some love to dear ones.
|a lil' something for this mama who may have been hooked on motrin.|
thieves for immunity. peppermint for headaches. and when combined a great refresh & reset
as you can see, i'm certainly all heart eyes for these little bottles of goodness.
it looks like i've been taking almost as many pics as a i do of my kids and chickens.
but seriously - it's because they really are such a big part of our days.
and these are just the ones i'm using from the starter kit...
there are so many other amazing ones
(clarity, cedarwood, rosemary, peace & calming, orange, bergamot...i could go on and on!)
wes and the kids got me my starter kit as a gift last year
(maybe i dropped a few subtle hints).
a gift that just keeps on giving.
the benefits, resources, community and built in personal time out love
for me as a woman, mom, wife, friend
has been so incredibly rewarding.
maybe you want to drop a lil' mother's day hint to your crew?
maybe you want to show a lil' mother's day love to your own mom?
maybe you want to learn a bit more?
send me a message or reach out anytime.
your oily sister
