Most days I hit my 7:00 am alarm and go back to sleep because who really wants to be responsible that early in the morning. Plus I’m still exhausted from the day before. Once I finally force myself to get up everything I had written down in my planner the week or day before has gone out the window and I immediately start to feel like a failure. The anxiety sets in when I am running through all of the crap I have to do and the little time I have to get it done before the kids start to go crazy and I want to hide in the closet with a tub of ice cream and cry. Very rarely do things go as planned. Those 5 planners so pretty on the outside but the inside is full of this and that and don’t forget to do this and I want to get this done and YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TODAY OR ELSE! Its an overwhelming feeling.
Since using oils I have a better understanding of my feelings and when I am getting irritated, stressed out, and overwhelmed. I know when I need to diffuse or put on some oils topically. In the mornings when I wake up completely overwhelmed by the day to come and my to-do lists screaming at me I like to use Stress Away. Stress Away is a calming blend that combats feelings of stress and nervous tension. It promotes relaxation, improves mental response and lowers hypertension. Stress Away is a blend made up of Copaiba it has hypnotic like properties , sounds like some serious stuff huh?, that work like a sedative to the nervous system. Lime known for cleansing and renewing the spirit. Lime has been know to help with depression and tired minds. Cedarwood is high in sesquiterpenes, (fancy word for stimulates the part of the brain that controls emotions and memory. Vanilla mood elevating and numbs stress and food cravings. Ocotea induces feeling of completeness and fullness. Lavender can improve concentration.
I don’t leave home without it and use it often throughout the day. SometimesI put it on just because it smells amazing 🙂
