Being a mom is no easy task and the stress that comes along with it can be overwhelming, even without a formal diagnosis of anything. Along with all of the stress of being a mom of seven, owning my own business, and our pending move halfway across the country, I knew I needed some help. And prescription medication just wasn’t cutting it.
I tried Apteka Naturel’s Tranquility Anti-Stress Support Supplement. It’s supposed to be ideal for helping to reduce stress and tension, promoting calmness, supporting a positive mood and a general sense of wellbeing. Well, it didn’t help much, so I tried nutritional supplements from Genesis Pure that my friend Lori introduced to me. I knew what I was putting into my body was good for me, but I didn’t see much change from any of these supplements either.
While I kept taking Genesis Pure’s Go-Yin, I was on the search for something more. Well, sort of. My friend Alyssa had tried to talk to me about essential oils many months before and, while the idea of them was appealing, I didn’t give them another thought. Looking back I’m not sure why, to be honest.
And then, just weeks after we moved, I saw a post on Facebook from another friend about how she was helping her kids relax and fall asleep by diffusing essential oils. Since we were dealing with a 2 hour time difference and school was starting soon, it sounded better than giving my kids melatonin every night. So, I ordered a few essential oils through Young Living and began diffusing Lavender and Peace & Calming, among others.
They worked! So, I began researching essential oils and Young Living further. What I found was mind blowing. I read many testimonies and decided to go all in… I purchased several bottles of Young Living essential oils (at wholesale prices!) to try to curb my anxiety, depression, and fibromyalgia symptoms.
I now apply each of the following oils daily, without fail –
- Progessence Plus on neck and forearms
- Valor on spine
- Joy over heart
- Harmony on Solar Plexus
- Stress Away on wrists
I also made myself a face cream using organic unrefined virgin coconut oil and Frankincense essential oil. Frankincense has been known to be mood-lifting, comforting and soothing, and great for battling depression, so I rub this cream on my face and neck every day.
In addition to my daily routine, I infuse my water with the Stress Away oil blend on particularly rough days, and use En-R-Gee and Clarity as needed. I also often diffuse any of the aforementioned oils, as well as Peace & Calming.
I am a new person. I am the old me. New again.
