Every month, I share something new I'm trying on my road to living a natural, clean, whole life. With each year, I've realized taking care of myself is essential to happiness and long-term health. Have a suggestion? Please leave a comment below!
Wellness Corner #1: doTERRA Oils
Spring is on its way (fingers crossed!). I’m so excited to throw open the windows, let the fresh air in and get outdoors. This winter has been a long, cold one and so many people have been raving about the power of oils.
Let’s be honest, oils seem like the latest trend in the wellness realm and I’m definitely interested in learning more. Oils can affect everything from your mood to your physical health and are an alternative, natural choice for cleaning and personal hygiene. My first March find is essential oils.
My pal Sarah is well-versed in doTERRA Oils and she came over to teach some friends and me a few things about using them in everyday life. There are three ways to use oils; on the skin, in the air and ingesting them.
My absolute favorite is a sleep blend consisting of Serenity blend and Vetiver (a root). I’m telling you, I’ve used this blend mixed with fractionated coconut oil (as a base) for about a month now and I’ve never slept better. I use a roller-ball on the inside of my forearms and behind my ears. Once I’m out, I rarely wake up and if I do, it’s not a struggle to fall back asleep.
As I work in my home office, the diffuser has been helping me focus, pumping a steady, calming stream of Wild Orange into the air. The bright, citrus scent has helped me stay focused and my office smells so yummy!
My latest healthy habit is putting a drop of turmeric oil in my ginger tea at night, which has anti-inflammatory properties and acts as an antioxidant. It’s been known to help with symptoms of depression & arthritis.
Do you use oils? I’m very new to this trend and am curious about your favorite blends, tricks or tips on how to get the most out of them. Please leave a comment below!
