As a mom, I can get so busy taking care of everyone else that I forget to take care of myself. It happened last week and I ended up with a 3 day headache! And that made me mad because then I couldn’t take very good care of anybody!
It’s not hard to take care of myself, I have to be intentional about it though.
This month, Young Living is offering some really great oils that are perfect for ME-time. And when you place a qualifying order, these products will come to you free of charge!
Lemongrass is definitely a favorite of mine. This has a very refreshing aroma and goes well in my diffuser with other oils like Lavender. But it is very soothing to the skin as well!
I have used this recently in an ointment I made to soothe some tender muscles. I used PanAway, Lemongrass, Wintergreen, Peppermint and Copaiba with a fourth of a cup of coconut oil and massage it in when I needed it.
Sometimes, when I’m not sure how to use an oil, I will see what other products use that oil. I found a long list of YL products that contain Lemongrass. Here are just a few; OrthoEase & OrthoSport massage oils, Purification, MultiGreens, DiGize.
I love that Lemongrass also comes as a Vitality oil so I can use it daily in a capsule to support my immune system.
Eucalyptus Radiata has a fabulous aroma! This oil is a must in our home during the winter. I love making a chest rub using this oil along with Eucalyptus Globulus and Eucalyptus Blue! Opens me up every time! Or you can add 3-4 drops of each to your diffuser and run that while you sleep.
This is also very soothing to the skin when used with a carrier oil.
To support your wellness, add 3 drop of Eucalyptus Radiata and 5 drops of Lemon to 1 cup of Epsom Salt. Add it to your bath water, as much or as little as you like and breathe in the oil infused air.
Palo Santo is a new favorite for me. It is known as “Holy Wood” and has been used for centuries by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon in rituals and ceremonies. The wood must be dead for at least two years before it can be distilled.
This oil sat in my cabinet for months, unopened until I heard a friend share how she uses it. Friends are good like that! Every since, I have began to use this oil for myself and for my son as well. I have come to love Palo Santo for how well it brings calm and and balance to the emotions.
It can also be very soothing to over worked muscles when massaged using a carrier oil.
Wintergreen reminds me of my grandpa’s gum. Isn’t it funny how aroma’s can do that to you. Suddenly with a sniff of Wintergreen my mind is flooded with memories of my grandparents.
Wintergreen is an oil that really came in handy when my husband began a new job. It was very physically taxing on his body. Every night before he left, I would rub down his back with OrthoSport massage oil, Wintergreen and Copaiba. He would use the same oils to rub down his knees and feet. This kept him going all night long.
Wintergreen is one of those oils found in the new Cool Azul Pain Cream.
I made a roller ball using Wintergreen,Copaiba, Peppermint, Idaho Balsam Fir and a carrier oil. This is handy to keep close by, especially when I ran out of Deep Relief or Panaway.
Speaking of Panaway. This fabulous blend is like an apology to your body when you walked that extra mile, or spent an extra 30 minutes at the gym or walked those stairs instead of taking the elevator. Sometimes we just push ourselves too hard. Panaway is that blend that tells your body, “It’s gonna be ok”.
I keep Panaway in my purse because I’m a mom and my kids live life to the fullest everyday. Things happen and then Panaway happens!
Panaway is a blend of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove and Peppermint. BAM! That is some serious muscle support right there.
