Self-Care Can Be Quick and Easy

My husband was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with COVID and my children, with the exception of 1 and myself all had differing degrees of severity. We experienced mostly mild symptoms, but it was a strange experience. My anxiety went through the roof when he received the news. He had been tested 3 days prior. What do I do? Who do I call first? I felt like we had the scarlet letter branded over our front door. I sunk into a chair to contemplate so many questions; where had we got it from, who had we given it to, how sick would we be, would my children be okay?

Of course, Oil Mama mode began! I blew past those useless thoughts and negative feelings and turned on some diffusers in my home right away...I am always empowered by my diffusers. I got to take control of something in my life!
 
With essential oil use, I can help myself, even though I cannot control what happens, I can control how I respond. I choose to use tools that help me without worrying me about side effects and...

Why Do We Always Find a Way to Ignore What We Need?

Why do we always find a way to ignore what we need? We usually fall dead last when it comes to our mental wellbeing. As I contemplate the present, which is the strangest of times, I realize that we do not have the ability to continue on like this unless we want to pay for it with our health. Yes, that is what I said. There is a direct correlation between our mental and physical health. 

I am sure you are familiar with people associating a heart attack or stroke with stress. Well, we are finding out that many other diseases can be started and exacerbated by stress and anxiety. Caring for your mental health can physically make you healthier. So, how do you fit this into an already overloaded schedule?  Simple, you control your day. 
 
You may not think so, but you are the keeper of your actions. We tend to blame other things for ruining our days, or filling them. The hard truth is, we do have control of it. Now, taking control, that can be a challenge. You may...

What Would Life Be Like Without COVID

As we've all experienced, COVID has brought much angst, potential sadness or depression, anxiety, and loss in many ways. However, what else has COVID brought us...aspects that have been more positive...and what would life be like without it. 

Sure, we can certainly focus on if COVID was not part of our lives then we would not be trapped in our houses most of the time, be able to eat out at restaurants or go out and do more sociable activities, our kids would be in school full time and wouldn't be behind in their studies, our mood would be better, and most importantly many people would not have suffered the unthinkable losses of lives.

But we can't change that COVID happened and is still here.

So I choose, with my glass 1/2 full, to focus on what positive things I would be losing out on if COVID didn't happen. If COVID didn't happen to me, I would:

1. only be spending time with my kids primarily on the weekends.

2. not have discovered new tools for my self-care regimen in...

You Are Not Alone

With times being what they are, I have had some time to reflect on how life has changed. It can be difficult to deal with everyday life. When so many changes come at one time, it can be challenging to keep our spirits up. Some of us will seek out help, some of us will not. You are not alone. You are not without tools. There are many non-pharmacy approaches to mood management. I use essential oils. 

 
Because essential oils affect our limbic systems, they can be an extremely safe and effective tool to helping us get through the day. Citrus oils are clinically trialed to elevate the mood. Lemon, Lime, Wild Orange, Bergamot, and other citrus oils have the ability to boost your emotions naturally and effectively. I am always excited to read about clinical trials and studies done on different disruptions in the body helped by essential oils. 
 
Diffusers are a non-intimidating way to disperse essential oils in a room and have almost an immediate effect on your body....

Does Social Distancing Mean Healthy Distancing Too?

Our leading followers of NeuroEssence comprises of mostly women, I think primarily due to the professions we support. So we asked a man's perspective on how his social distancing is going...

"Ok, so day one of getting back to being serious about being healthy. It’s been two weeks for me of being at home with the family and it’s been a blast. We’ve been veggin' out as we like to say ...watching movies, making snacks, sleeping in...basically, treating every day likes it’s Saturday. But, it is affecting my body!

So now back to business! I, myself, am getting back to my schedule of Mito2Max, PB Assist, Terrazyme, and Turmeric. I take these once in the morning with a protein probiotic shake or a light breakfast. I will do a second round of Mito2Max at around 2 o’clock to finish out my day. I am also going to fast 3 days a week and see how my doTERRA regimen works out. I might have to adjust my times only because I have to eat to take the pills.

In addition to...
