Gloomy, Huge & Pregnant + Orange Essential Oil = Love!
My journey with essential oils started two years ago during my pregnancy with Ayla. I was given a bottle of Wild Orange. I was feeling physically huge and emotionally dark that January and WOW, simply smelling that oil uplifted me, made me feel better about my situation and made me feel like everything was going to be OK.
After that I was hooked. Opening it, taking in the aroma, and feeling the almost instantaneous change, a love was born.
The chemical compounds of that Orange plant that came from the far away tropical lands of the Dominican Republic transported my brain to a sunnier place. Right then and there I was lighter, I was happier.
I have since learned that when we inhale these aromas they travel to the emotional centers of our brain, the amygdala, thru the nasal passageways and therefore have the ability to change moods quickly.
I never really liked essential oils before but that was because all I had been exposed to were synthetic oils. These oils are so different because they contain 100% plant material. No chemicals. That’s why they affect me differently in a more positive and actually therapeutic way.
Since that day, I’ve been committed to using these essential oils daily to uplift my mood, to uplift the mood in my house and to uplift the mood of those around me. Powerful and positive, I use the oils daily with my kids as well and they love them. They are calming and gentle in an effective way.
Since that day I have also been committed to telling others about therapeutic grade essential oils. I want people to feel empowered and to know about another healthy positive tool they can use to improve their wellbeing, physically and emotionally.
I offer free classes and consultations for using essential oils to improve health. See my Classes page for upcoming events.
