I pick up the small bottle of peppermint and breathe deeply. My lungs feel tingly and cool, my mind clear. I feel awake, energized. I slip the bottle into my pocket as I head out the door, keeping it close because I know I’ll need it.
I love sharing peppermint with my husband. I hold the bottle under his nose and tell him to take a deep breath. I giggle at his expression. He loves peppermint. It helps him through the long hours in front of the computer.
I also put a few drops into our water for a refreshing treat that helps the stomach.
Out home is filled with scents. I use frankincense as my new perfume. It is the most beautiful fragrance. It changes my inner state, inspires spiritual feelings. It reminds me of a king, of liquid gold, of ancient, golden sunlight.
I drop soothing blends into my diffuser and my home changes. It feels bright and beautiful. Even little messes stops bothering me so much.
Once I diffused wild orange while I was feeling particularly low and grumpy. Suddenly I realized that I felt better, that the dark cloud had lifted. I realized it was wild orange helping me. I love putting it on my hands and inhale deeply. Bright orange happiness!
I’ve been buying oils from doterra. The oils smell amazing, stronger and purer than other brand I’ve tried. I’m eager to dig deeper into the world of essential oils and the healing they can bring, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I’ve been hearing amazing stories about people recovering from hurts and illnesses using these oils. I love the way they can totally shift the way I feel, and I’ve started experimenting with what they can do for our health.
