25 Essential Oils To Help You Live Life To The Fullest!

The new year is finally here! And I am determined to jump in with both feet and enjoy the life God has given me to the fullest!

Whether it is a new year, or the middle of summer, it’s never too late to embrace all of life’s moments!

As a mother, I completely understand that this is sometimes hard to do! It’s really easy to let the kids dictate your emotions. All it takes is a fight among the kids, a broken glass shattered all over the kitchen floor, or mud tracked all the way through the house to cause you to feel overwhelmed and grouchy.

Not to mention the everyday stress of work, bills, house repairs, and the list goes on!

But before you get depressed thinking of all this craziness! Take a deep breath! A deep breath of essential oils that is!

How to live life to the fullest using essential oils

I know that accomplishing this on my own will be hard. We all need support, am I right?

This is where essential oils come in.

Essential oils are great for helping to promote positive emotions!

Scents trigger an emotional response within the body.

They can promote happiness and relaxation.

They can invigorate and inspire.

And they can help to create feelings of wellbeing and security!

Diffusing Essential Oils

This is why I love to diffuse essential oils!

And why I also created my eBook 100 Essential Oil Diffuser Blends!

It contains blends to help you enjoy all of life’s moments to the fullest! A great recipe book so that you don’t have to research which oils are best to use at a particular moment, and which oils go well together!
