Emotional Release

Let’s talk emotions. We all have them and we all bottle up from time to time.

When I think of releasing emotions, I think of relaxing, like taking a hot bath maybe with some bubbles. Even writing in my journal or talking with a close friend about whatever may be occurring. But did you know there are aromatherapy techniques that can help as well to release emotions?

Using essential oils can help support the process of releasing emotion. Such as when getting a massage applying essential oils to facilitate the body to let go unhealthy emotional patterns.

Some essential oils that you can try are:

Bergamot– helps you let go of anger, anxiety, loneliness, insecurity, and fear.

Rosewood- helps you release grief and sadness

White Angelica- supports all that has taken place and prepares one to search inward for the strength to proceed with life and to search upward for the true source of love and light.

Some great areas to apply these oils are:

Bottoms of feet

Energy centers (chakras)

Back of neck

I’d love to hear what you are doing to release emotion!

I have hit a wall

Have you seen my motivation?

I have hit a serious wall. I cant focus on my businesses or life in general. I just don’t know where to start again. I was doing so well for so long and BAM! CRASH! Nada. Its like I lost my high. My motivation.

Being noticed on social media is hard work, and I am just having a hard time figuring out how to get noticed. Who my target is. What is my vision statement. All that stuff.

Shit.

Consider this my weekly bitching post haha.

Rough day.

Yesterday and today have been rough mentally. I’m exhausted from hosting an essential oils class on Facebook but boy was it fun. But also very tiring. Glad it’s over haha.

I need some rest then will write something awesome tomorrow.

Essential Oils & Anxiety

Several essential oils have the properties to help restore balance when anxiety is present.

Diffuser 
Some of my favorites to diffuse are bergamot and chamomile.
Apply 8-10 drops into water in your diffuser and let the diffuser run for about 15 minutes.

Bath Blend
1/2 cup milk
4 drops Sandalwood Essential Oil
1 drop Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Pour milk in to a bowl, add essential oils and mix well. Add mixture to a warm bath!

Massage Oil
2 drop of Rose Essential Oil
2 drop of Lavender Essential Oil
2 drops of Mandarin Essential Oil
2 drop of Vetiver Essential Oil
1 fluid ounce of a carrier oil (coconut, jojoba, almond)
Apply only a small amount (1 teaspoon) to each massage

I personally made me a roller blend that I apply to my wrist, back of neck and feet. It has really helped me chill out and relax in anxiety filled moment.
in a 10ml glass roller bottle add:
30 StressAway
15 Vetiver
35 Valor
30 Lavender
15 Patchouli
Top with a carrier oil, I use fractionated coconut oil

These recipes are not evaluated by the FDA and I am not a doctor. There recipes are not to cure illness but to promote wellness. You should always consult a doctor before using essential oils.

Well liked.

So as you know I am bipolar, but before that I was just me. Weird ole me. I am shy, awkward as hell and outgoing all in one. Depends on the situation and if my anxiety is present.

So you can imagine trying to become more outgoing on social media isn’t exactly a cake walk for me. I listen to my podcast and read my books on how to help my businesses by posting a lot, and I mean A L O T. But I still can’t figure it out. I know it takes time and patience but trying to get over the ‘care what people think of me’ stage isn’t going to happen over night.

So I apologize now for all the awkward post. Hopefully here soon I will post something actually fun and interesting, hahaha.

Mompreneur.

Being a stay at home mom is hard work. A lot don’t think there is much to it but that’s not true. But being a mompreneur is even harder work. I am a Young Living Independent Distributor, meaning I have my own business educating people on the wellness essential oils provides for everyday life.

I also own my own business, The Oily Chick. I make diffuser bracelets and necklaces. Along with body products such as bath salts, lotions, etc. and candles and soaps.  My goal is to get into the small farmer markets to sell my product.

Problem is, for both businesses, money. Coming up with the funds to make product or help sell a kit. Everyone has something to sell these days and trying to make it in 2018 as a mompreneur isn’t easy.

But I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love that I get to be home with Violet and pick Ameeya up from school. But I also love that I have the freedom to be my own person, a business woman, a successful woman.

It isn’t always easy but it’s worth it and I’ll find a way to make it work.

Diagnosis

On December 20th I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. I have struggled with anxiety and depression since I was about 17. But this was a bit of a surprise. A week prior to seeing my doctor I went into complete hysterics over a very minor screw up and I think at that point I knew something else was going on. To be okay one minute and the next crying, hyperventilating, the whole shabang.

Im not really sure how to cope with this. I have never known anyone with a bipolar disorder. I have so much reading to do I don’t know where to start.

I guess that is why I started this blog, to find comfort. Or something. It’s hard to not shy away or hide from this….

If anyone feels like sharing their experiences I would love to hear them.
