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.
