Sometimes, I'm a little off my rocker.
Mostly I'm pretty good at maintaining perspective and seeing the positive, but especially since I've become a mum (x3), when I'm under stress, my emotions really run high.
I get so overwhelmed that my vision becomes focused (in a bad way) and I don't even want to lean on my oils because I'm just too damn past it.
So this morning was one of those times. I know my triggers. One of them is packing up all our shit and heading to Brisbane for work. Another is packing said shit up and coming back to the caravan at the end of the work stint. Fair to say, I'm pretty over it.
Luckily, my husband has the patience of a saint. Aaand as it usually works out, when I'm having a crappy day, he can support me, and vice versa. But something else had to help me get out of my funk, which was very unproductive and unhelpful with bags waiting to be packed (topped up, actually, as we pretty much live out of them!). I walked past my oil box, scowling at them and thinking that not even they could help me today. But I couldn't escape them. My Vetiver and Frankincense called out to me. See, these two earthy, grounding essential oils are aromatic anchors for me. They literally stop me in my tracks and pull me back down to Earth. My brain registered the smell before I could even do anything about it. And so I deeply inhaled each of them, straight outta their bottles, and calm began to creep in.
Once my rational state of mind had returned, I felt immense gratitude for having these powerful essential oils in my life. Supporting my emotions is my number one use for them. So many things follow, but they have been instrumental in helping me get through those moments in life, with which I'm sure most other mums can empathise.
If you're like me and have been looking for something to get you through those days when nothing seems right, please do yourself the biggest favour you possibly could and look into how these amazing oils can help you. If I could help just one other mum or person at any stage, it would be worth everything to me. Reach out and we can chat xo
