Essential Oils

How can essential oils help you through change and upheaval?

When faced with MAJOR upheaval in our lives, such as separation and divorce, we can often find ourselves engulfed and consumed by negative and destructive emotions … fear, guilt, anger, depression. Left unattended, these emotions can become TOXIC and have a serious impact on our body, mind and soul (yuck).

ESSENTIAL OILS are an effective, safe and 100% natural way for us to support ourselves as we move through these toxic and negative emotions, freeing us to move forward in our new lives with greater happiness, ease and joy (yay!).

 

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are pure, highly concentrated, 100% natural plant-based extracts. Essential oils have been used by humans throughout history to help body, heart, mind and soul return to a balanced state of health and wellbeing.

They are especially powerful when it comes to positively influencing our emotions and the way we feel. This is because when we inhale an essential oil, it crosses the blood-brain barrier and travels directly to the limbic system, having a balancing effect on the area of our brain associated with emotions.

(An aside - I dearly love talking about the blood-brain barrier, and have been known to go on and on and on about it because I find that thing so damn fascinating!)

When you inhale a calming, soothing essential oil, it has a calming and soothing effect on the way you feel and can positively influence not only your mood, but also your brain functioning and overall wellbeing. And, as essential oils are a natural mechanism used by plants to protect against environmental threats, they can and will naturally help and support us in feeling more protected during difficult times.

Let's be real - when it comes to separation and divorce - or any form of change or upheaval - who couldn’t do with a little extra help and support?! Right?! Especially given that essential oils don’t come with ANY of the negative side effects that unfortunately go hand-in-hand with some of our regular support mechanisms - glass or four of wine, anyone?

When you use essential oils to help you feel better, there are no nasty hangovers or indeed any unpleasant side effects ... it’s just 100% PURE NATURAL LOVING feelings of HEALTH WELLBEING HARMONY and SUPPORT. 

Now doesn't that sound nice.


How do I use essential oils?

Actually, I'm glad you asked. Because there are several different ways you can use your essential oils.

The simplest way is to diffuse the oils using an electric diffuser, which leaves a fine mist in the air. As you inhale the oils they travel straight to the emotional processing centre of your brain and - depending on which oils you diffuse - will have a calming, uplifting, motivating, relaxing or energizing effect.

Diffusing certain essential oils will also be beneficial in supporting your immune system, which can come under a WHOLE lot of pressure and strain during crappy times.

And of course, when you diffuse your essential oils, you’re not just benefiting yourself. Anyone who is in your space - be it home or workspace - will benefit from the oils. In your home, your children and even your pets - who will also be experiencing the effects of stress and upheaval - will benefit from the goodness and basically be happier little mites all-round.

As well as diffusion, the essential oils I use are so pure they can be applied TOPICALLY (directly onto the skin), and, some can even be taken INTERNALLY to allow them to travel directly to the systems most affected by stress and toxic emotions.

My passion for essential oils

I have been using essential oils OBSESSIVELY for some time now, due to the many beautiful ways in which they've supported me to feel better within myself, and to help empower me in my life *happy sigh*.

I only use doTERRA Essential Oils. This is because they are the only brand that is guaranteed 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. This means that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients or harmful contaminants that could cause harm and/or reduce the effectiveness of the oils.

Each batch of doTERRA essential oils goes through extensive testing and checking processes before it is released, which means each and every bottle of doTERRA Essential Oil is of the highest and purest quality available.

And, if all of that wasn't enough to completely rock your socks off, there is more!! All doTERRA Essential Oils are ethically sourced from plants which have been patiently tended to and harvested by practised growers from around the globe. Believe me, these oils are not the two-dollar-shop type doozies! And quite frankly I wouldn’t trust my wellness, or the wellness of my family, with anything else.
