We all have Emotions

Do you ever feel like you are on an unstable roller coaster with too many feels?! I have been a hormonal imbalanced wreck after baby number two, or questionably for my entire pubescent life…

This week has been especially frustrating but I now, after 29 years, finally have some backup. Clary Calm is the women’s blend that is made to balance hormones. I don’t have any science behind this blend yet specifically but I can tell you first hand that it takes me from an ugly cry to an embarrassed reasonable human in minutes.

Clary sage is the first ingredient and it is a hormone powerhouse.    It has natural phytoestrogens which help regulate estrogen. It also was found in this study to be an effective anti depressant and decrease cortisol levels which block hormone production.

I like to rub Clary calm on my forearms and I like to diffuse Clary sage with bergamot, grapefruit and juniper berry. It is slightly calming and gives me that extra uplifting support I need to negotiate with a toddler.

Have questions? Lets set up a time to talk about the best blend to bring you some inner peace.

Blended

So the focus of this week is the blends that DoTERRA has pre-made.

Who has an adorable husband during the day and then at night he turns into the loudest chainsaw you have ever heard with his obnoxious snoring?

Before oils I would give husband a not so gentle nudge every time he was bothering me. Maybe not the most loving, but a girl has gotta sleep!

Who out there loves a double blind study more than I do? Probably not, but I am sure there are others who get excited about good science. There is a study that shows the effectiveness of essential oil spray in decreased reports of snoring by bed partners!!!Yay!!

Serenity is the DoTERRA restful blend and breathe is the respiratory blend. Combined plus added thyme makes a pretty close copycat of the no more snore spray used for the research. I put them to the test.

I tossed a mix of serenity, breath and thyme in our diffuser and we are good to go! No snoring until the night I forgot to diffuse it, the snoring was back! Using my stealthy ninja skills I filled the diffuser and within 5 minutes the snoring was gone. I would call that a huge success!

Calm Down!

Recently my company merged with another company and my medical benefits changed. I just got off the phone for the 4th time this week trying to explain that they need to bill my new insurance instead of my old one. Does anyone communicate anymore!? Thank the lord I had my roller blend pre-made because let me tell you, with a screaming baby in the background, a toddler trying to get into everything and me trying to tell the same company for the 4th time that they are billing the wrong insurance I was about to lose it!

However, I took the high road. I had some big whiffs of my roller bottle and then rolled it on my neck and hands and managed a calm and adult conversation. Fingers Crossed I don’t have to speak to them again about this topic.

Interesting fact:  research shows that lavender increases signs of interpersonal trust. See the research here .

I will choose to believe that using my essential oil blend allowed me to calm down and trust in the person on the other line to solve my problem!

Why not try it out! Plus, It smells Really good!

 

Ylang Ylang-  Treating anxiety, lowering blood pressure, releasing frustration

Lavender: Illicit feelings of trust.  Can make it easier to help release tension and angry.

Orange-Can bring feelings of calm and uplifting as well as alleviation of anxiety.

Lavender Blend

Jumping on to share a couple of my favorite lavender blends. Neroli and Jasmine have similar aromatherapy properties (antiseptic, anti depressant, antispasmodic, deodorant, aphrodisiac) and are two of my fast favorites.However they are very strong and a little goes a long way!!!!

Mix them with some lavender and you are in for a relaxing calm night. (See the research in the last post)

 

I’ve been using them at night to roll on my wrist and diffusing them to relax.

2 year old really likes the smell of jasmine and calls it “pretty smelling”

If you diffuse it comment below to let me know what you think!

 

HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!
