Ahhh- oils. A few of my favorite things ?
After a noon workout I decided to go to Whole Foods for lunch, and boy was it spectacular ? BBQ chicken thigh, California quinoa salad, and roasted veggies in olive oil. (As a side note I must have not had enough food… I was still hungry so I ended up eating the rest of my Quest bar as well!)
I still had about 20 minutes to kill before my next appointment and thought I would peruse the aisles of Whole Foods since I was already there. Maybe I would pick up another candle, but something was calling me toward the essential oils.
Once I got there I immediately noticed these beautifully packaged oils by Kate’s Magik. (also pictured below is an essential oil blend by Doterra)
I ended up picking up two: Venus – A Love Oil and Break Bad Patterns & Addictions.
There were so many beautiful oils to choose from but I followed what my heart desired and decided on these two.
Essential oils have helped me in a variety of ways in the past. I’ve used them to:
- help calm my nerves
- ease tension and soreness in my neck and shoulders
- morning & evening ritual for intention setting
- be mindful
I remember the very first essential oil I bought for myself which was a mix of lavender and ylang ylang. I bought it during a time of transition and needed a way to relax, be mindful, and bring me to my center. It was heavenly.
Doterra was another oil I bought and the way it released all the tension in my shoulders was magical.
What essential oils or blends have you used? How has it helped you in the moment or to work through a particular situation?
With that said.. here’s to sacred space, sacred moments, and how essential oils can help you along the way.
