Is it just one more thing for a busy mom like you to learn about? Or is it easier than you think? Are these oils complicated? Will they make your busy life run a little smoother? Those are awesome questions! Lets dig in to them below.
Q: Is it just one more thing to learn about?
A: Yes and no
As long as you know the three ways to use essential oils you have learned the basics and can start right away!
- Aromatic: Smell the essential oils directly from the bottle or use a cold-water diffuser to diffuse throughout the home.
- Topical: Direct application to the skin. Apply to the palm of your hand and rub into the back of your neck, wrists, feet, spine or any specific place as needed. ***Note: If an oil ever feels hot or spicy on the skin add a carrier oil like coconut, olive, almond or grapeseed oil… basically any fatty based oil. This will slow the absorption rate and bring comfort.
- Internal: Only consume oils from the vitality line, these are safe for consumption. Add one or two drops into an empty capsule with carrier oil, drop a drip under the tongue, or add to a glass or stainless steel water bottle.
Got all that? Then your ready to begin! That wasn’t so hard, was it?
Q: Is it easier than you think?
A: Yes! A million times yes!!!
You don’t need to know how an oil works to diffuse it or apply it topically. You never know which ones you will fall in love with. The more you use them the more you will grow in your knowledge and skill.
A wonderful fact to keep in mind: you don’t have to know how an oil works for it to work. They bring about wellness no matter where they are placed on the body. They invoke calming or energizing atmospheres when diffused as well. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
The most important thing is using and diffusing them daily.
Q: Are oils complicated?
A: There is a lot to learn about essential oils but they are not complex in the way we use them.
You can dig in and learn as much as you want but a base knowledge of how to use them (the three ways listed above) is all that is needed to begin.
Learning about essential oil’s isn’t hard or complicated. All it takes is knowing where to go for accurate information and if you’ve purchased from me, I make sure you know where this information can be found.
Q: Will they make your life run a little smoother
A: It does take a little longer to stop apply the oils than to reach and grab for something more chemical ridden to take it’s place. However, the benefits, for me at least, outweigh the latter.
I am more than happy to reach for an oil knowing it will work with my body, bringing about wellness and support, than something that goes in, does a job, and finishes without caring if it’s messed something else up along the way.
There is a richness that comes from slowing down long enough to fill the diffuser or rub oils on my neck and shoulders, even on my children.
Slowing down to provide your body with good support is not a bad thing. It shouldn’t come as an inconvenience and if it does, mama… you’ve been putting your needs on the back burner for to long.
Never be alone on your oil journey
If you move to purchase essential oils, please, do so from someone who can get you off to a good start! This person needs to be there to walk you through your kit (I do this with a simple phone call) and offer continued education and support, which I have available to those in my private facebook group – Drops Of Joy.
Don’t purchase your oils from just anyone or you will be left asking for help. Not because it’s difficult, because some people have not taken the time to educate themselves in a way that can help educate others.
Can oils fill a need in your life?
Many people won’t just jump into essential oils unless it can fill a void in their lives. Unless it can help them in some way. This I completely understand!!! I didn’t jump until I saw the value and had a need. So what void/need do you have in your life that you think a company such as Young Living could fill?
