Best Thing I’ve Done For Myself

Ever since I discovered the wonder of essential oils, I’ve been hooked. I have to admit, I was skeptical at first but decided I needed to do something about the stress + anxiety I was having related to my job. As some of you may remember, I ended up returning to my job as a preschool teacher and director, even though I had officially given my notice last June. Since the preschool was unable to find a replacement for me, I reluctantly agreed to go back for another year in order for the school not to have to close down. Well, let me tell you…..this. job. is. stressful.

I knew I didn’t want to start taking prescription medications because of the side effects and other personal reasons. That’s when I sort of fell into Young Living Essential Oils. Let me tell you, they are simply ahmazing!!!  As soon as I received my starter kit, I was in love. The oil diffuser is the absolute best and my house has never smelled better! And the oils are nothing short of miraculous. I immediately started using an oil blend called Stress Away – just a few drops on the back of my neck, bottoms of my feet, and on my wrists and I feel the anxiety slowly leaving my body. I use it in the classroom every day.

Next, I tried Peace and Calming and ahhh, just the name itself calms my nerves. So what are Stress Away and Peace and Calming? They are oil blends created by Young Living and are wonderful for those suffering from stress, anxiety, depression and/or tension and want a safe + natural way to relieve these symptoms. They help deal with problems related to the nervous system and balance of the emotions. I also use Peace + Calming in my diffuser and on my body before I go to bed to help relieve insomnia. I’ve ALWAYS struggled with insomnia. Uggh.

These oils ARE powerful and you have to remember to avoid exposure to direct sunlight for at least 3-6 hours after use since some oft hem may cause increased photosensitivity.

What’s in Peace + Calming?
