Still think aromatherapy is a bunch of hooey? I did. Even when I hear it mentioned today, my gut reaction is still to think it’s a bunch of hooey! But I know from experience that it’s not.
God made us with such intricacies that even emotions play a huge part in our physical well-being. Emotional upsets can manifest all over the body as aches and pains, rashes, and other physical symptoms. For someone like me, who is not overly emotional or prone to emotional upsets, it’s hard to correlate emotions to a physical issue. But using high quality essential oils I have seen firsthand the positive impact that aromatherapy can have on both the mind and the body. They work together and there’s no way to separate the two.
Take for instance Young Living’s Stress Away blend of essential oils. This lovely, calming fragrance is so nice to wear. How did I not know about this beautiful blend sooner? It came as a freebie gift in one of my orders and now I wonder why I waited so long to try it.
Do I have stress in my life? Of course I do. Who doesn’t? Does it overwhelm me? Sometimes maybe. But, like everyone else, I just work through it. It’s part of life.
But I have to say, there is definitely a calming effect when I wear the Stress Away blend. And why wouldn’t I wear it? It makes me feel a little calmer, a little happier, or even just a little prettier because it happens to smell so wonderful. That’s what aromatherapy is all about. I can hardly believe I just said that, but it’s true!
Sure, there’s a whole study surrounding aromatherapy. It’s not something I’m interested in doing right now, but that doesn’t make it any less real. So if you have stressors in your life or you just like to smell lovely and beautiful, you might want to Stress Away a try. I know I’m glad I did.
And if you think aromatherapy is a bunch of hooey like I did (and sometimes still do) you might also want to add in a little Joy and see what that does for you! Let me know how it goes.
FYI… Not all essential oils are the same quality! If you’re interested in using essential oils, I highly recommend beginning with the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. Young Living offers, in my opinion, THE BEST essential oils! Their starter kit includes 11 oils, samples, a diffuser, and other good stuff. Once you have a diffuser (there are several options), you’re going to want to run it every day! It makes the house smell SO good!
The starter kit is the most cost-effective way to jump into essential oils. The starter kit with the home diffuser is $160 (this kit is a $330 value!) With this kit you become a wholesale member with Young Living and receive approximately 24% off all your future purchases and makes you eligible for other member-only benefits. There are NO STRINGS attached with this membership. You are NOT obligated monthly purchases or to sell oils. Just enjoy the beautiful oils you’re getting at a great price!
