Life is chaos. Everyone needs something from Mommy all the time. This one needs my attention to show off her new Rainbow Loom bracelet, that one needs me to help him button his pants and the baby needs me to feed her this…very…instant! The dishes are piling up, the laundry needs to be done and the dog just tracked dead grass throughout the downstairs (thanks to a lack of rain). My phone is going off with text after text, there are 143 episodes of Friends piling up on the DVR, my favorite author just released a new book and my toenail polish has now completely chipped off. There is karate, dance, cub scouts, girl scouts and church every time the doors are open (thank you Lord for my crazy life!). Oh and did I mention that we started homeschooling this year? My husband is working over 50 hours a week, there are medical bills pouring in and my brain is working overtime to take it all in. And to round everything out, I am running this blog called Couponing to Disney, which I absolutely love and can’t believe turned 5 years old last month!
Phew, are you exhausted yet? I know I am!
Thankfully, I have my oils. My wonderful, amazing, precious, get me through the day oils. The oils that are there to keep me motivated as I pull myself up out of the bed in the morning and they keep m going until I collapse in bed at night. They keep me happy, sane, energetic and most importantly, stress free. If I didn’t have them, I don’t know how I would function! I really don’t.
Before I had the baby, I was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils. Maybe you have heard of them? They are gaining in popularity because people around the world are realizing how amazing they are. And they really will change your life!
I started with this oil called Stress Away. It smells amazing! As I progressed to the end of my pregnancy, my anxiety over the baby and the birth was starting to consume me. I began to apply a drop of Stress Away to my wrists every 3 hours. And I started to function, to put one foot in front of the other and count down the days until I held my beautiful baby in my arms.
When I brought her home, it was blissful. Until she woke up! How on earth was I going to handle 3 kids, a husband, a blog and everything that life threw my way? I started to stress out, to cry, to throw in the towel. But then I found this amazing concoction of oils. Stress Away, Valor and Joy…my heroes!
Every morning, I apply a drop of Valor on my wrists, a drop of Stress Away behind my ears and a drop of Joy on my heart. For energy, I add a drop of En-R-Gee to my adrenal glands in the lower back area. And I tell Siri (on the iPhone) to remind me every 3 hours to apply more oils. I am then ready to conquer the day and to do it with a smile on my face!
I suffered from the Baby Blues after I had my son. Trying to balance 2 kids and being a stay at home mom was hard. But now things are 3 times as busy, I am 7 years older and I am happy and content and inspired all because of my oils.
If you are having a hard time balancing everything in your life, I highly suggest you try Young Living Essential Oils. In the starter kit, you will receive the Stress Away, Valor and Joy oils plus 8 other oils to help keep you and your family healthy.
I am more than happy to answer any questions you have about using the oils. Feel free to send me an email at [email protected].
