Crazy Busy Life

Do you often feel like you just do not have enough time in the day? You run from one important task to the next. You are up at the crack of dawn and your head does not hit the pillow till well after dark. Our lives can be crazy. Between work, kids, family, spouses, volunteering, etc we drive ourselves mad!

But stop. Wait. Is this really how God intended for us to live our lives? Did He really want us to constantly feel overbooked and overextended? Were we made to be constantly frazzled, exhausted, and drained? No, I truly believe that we were not. God meant for us to be balanced and focused. We were made to be centered and grounded. But why is this not happening? Where have we gone astray and how can we fix it?

Well I will tell you what has helped in my life. First and foremost pray. Pray and spend time with God. If you do not choose to stay connected with Him it is hard for Him to guide you. Second, I have discovered the crazy power of Essential Oils. They truly do something for our bodies, minds and souls. I cannot believe the calm I feel when I apply Lavender to my wrist when I’m frazzled. Or the grounding I feel when I smell Frankincense.

Essential Oils work directly with our limbic system, and it is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance (Higley & Higley, 1998).

During inhalation, odor molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system, which is commonly referred to as the “emotional brain.” This relationship helps explain why smells often trigger emotions. Knowing this, we can hypothesize how inhalation of essential oils can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects!

It is truly profound effects. So if you are finding yourself at the end of your rope. Stressed out and run down now is the best time to try something new. Choose to make the change in your life. God created us to LIVE life not be controlled by the chaos.

To Fall in Love with Frank

We all go through a time in our lives when we fall in love. It might be knew love, it might be old love, it might be rekindled love. Well, I have a NEW love and his name is Frank! (Don’t tell my hubby!) Franks real name is Frankincense and let me tell you his story.

Frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carterii) is considered a holy oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years and was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth. Frankincense is mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian scroll from approximately 1500 BCE, that documents its use. I just love the history of Frank, it truly warms my heart to know that that this oil was given to my Savior at his birth. Every time I diffuse Frank or use topically the sweet aroma grounds me to my God.
Frankincense is derived from the gummy sap that oozes out of the Boswellia trees, respectively, when their bark is cut. The leaking resin is allowed to harden and then scraped off the trunk in tear-shaped droplets; it may then be used in its dried form or steamed to yield essential oils. It is edible and often chewed like gum. It is also extremely fragrant, particularly when burned or diffused. 5324015063_905550e980_z
Frankincense essential oil  has a broad range of uses, from enhancing spiritual and meditative practice to use in beauty routines. Frankincense has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Create a safe and comforting environment by diffusing this oil’s empowering aroma, particularly when you are seeking purpose or engaged in prayer or meditation. In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, Frankincense can help you maintain the appearance of radiant skin. Its ability to smooth the appearance of healthy skin explains why it is used in many natural beauty products.
I use Frank everyday on my face and love the results. I use a synergy  of Frank, Lavender and Copaiba essential oils in a roller ball with grape seed oil. (Recipe below) I also use Frank neat on my forehead each night. I apply one drop on my forehead and then gently rub it over my whole face. My skin has never felt or looked so good!! Also if feel a clogged pore coming on I put a dab of Frank on it and it keeps it from ever erupting! I Love Frank!5469204697_4237b7b092_z(1)
There are just so many great uses for Frank….. Invite elevated spiritual experiences every day by diffusing this oil in your home or office. Add Frankincense to your daytime lotion or night cream for a custom moisturizer that highlights your natural beauty. Incorporate Frankincense into your yoga ritual by diffusing this oil during your routine and following up with a post-practice massage. I also just love to use Frank as a personal scent! One drop Frank on my wrist with one drop Patchouli smells divine!
So don’t hold back any longer! If you have not started your romance with Frank, today is the day!

Hormones and Clary Sage: A Women’s Best Friend

Clary sage essential oil is a must-have oil for all women. Put this in your essential rewards cart right now if you don’t already have this oil on your shelf! One of the uses of this amazing essential oil is for balancing hormones and regulating the menstrual cycle. It is used to treat premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, such as mood swings, cramps, bloating, and food cravings. Studies have shown that Clary Sage significantly reduces the pain of pre-menstrual cramping. Clary sage essential oil helps to regulate estrogen levels and improves the long-term health of the uterus.

I had been struggling with severe mood swings, cramping and irregular cycle for about the last four years. I would could feel my mood drastically change right before ovulation and my period. I would call this my “twice a month throat punch time”, basically stay out of my way our you might get punched! It was horrible, the littlest things would set me off and then I would feel so bad about over reacting that I would end up crying! It was a vicious cycle. I also had intense cramping that would wake me up in the middle of the night and my cycle was extremely sporadic.

Then I learned about Clary Sage!! For the love of God my life changed. I started to apply Clary Sage to the vita flex points on my ankles morning and night. Then, I waited. Ovulation came, ovulation went…..and I didn’t want to kill anyone!! Holy biscuits I was excited! Now I waited for my period, and guess what!? It came right on time, my mood was stable and my cramping was pretty much nonexistent. I swear my flow even seemed to be lighter.

This is when I became a believer in the power of Clary Sage.

Cheers!
