It is memorial day weekend!!! I love barbecues and good sales, but it is so important to remember why we get to enjoy this three day weekend.
I have been talking to my endless question asking 2 year old about memorial day and where it stems from. We talked about how we take the day to remember all of the men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom, allow us to live in peace, play with our toys, eat good food and sleep in our warm beds.
He then told me “momma are they sad?” I explained that they are now resting in peace but their loved ones may be sad. He then asked “can we make them happy”? He too wise for his years and I have no answer.
However there is an awesome oil called Console that is a blend to help process feelings of grief and sadness.
doTERRA says “Console Comforting Blend of floral and tree essential oils will help you close the door on sadness and take your first steps on a hopeful path toward emotional healing.”
I use this blend for balance and calming anxiety and also grieving the loss of my personal space and free time haha 😂
The main oils in the comforting blend are:
Frankincense: an amazing oil often used to promote feelings of balance, focus and meditation. As well as ease impatience and restlessness.
Patchouli: surprisingly part of the mint family which can be sedating, calming, and relaxing which often help reduce anxious feelings.
Ylang Ylang: a floral scent that has antidepressant and sedative properties. It is often used to help calm and relax.
