The Fallacy of One Size

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

There are times in my life when I am a little more emotional than others. Like the silliest thing will have tears welling up in my eyes for no reason. I will be watching a tv show, playing with my son or just some random activity and all of a sudden these odd feelings wash over me.  Next I know I’m a blubbering mess. My favorite is when I’m watching my son and realizing how big he is getting, how good he is at something or just how lucky I am to get to be his mom. Boom! There’s the tears. Proud momma tears, sad life passing tears, touching moments, you name it. Maybe it’s hormonal, maybe it’s that time of the month or maybe it’s just me. I can’t explain it or even do much than gently wipe my eyes and try to hide the fact I was crying at something other parents are sitting through calmly.

As I’ve grown in my natural health journey I’m realizing there is a close tie to my emotions and health. I can clearly see that when I’m happy I have more energy, wake up refreshed and ready, overall just feeling good.  When I am down and sad or highly stressed I’m likely to get a cold, not feel good physically, be achy and have low energy.  Of course us women have changes happening all the time in our bodies that only complicate these feelings and what it does to our physical health status.

The Inner and Outer Being

I have used in my own experimentation essential oils and natural products to help enhance the good feelings, soften the sadder ones and find a balance that works for me. I’ve seen over time how I can learn the song of my cells and what they need to help support their functions and drive what I’m feeling inside and out. For instance, everyone who has read this blog for any length of time knows I’ve suffered from adult acne well into my 40s. I found natural cleansers and specially the doTERRA Zendocrine softgels that contain Geranium essential oil and some other good ingredients keeps my body detoxed and my face clear.  I finally have control of my face because of flowers and plants!

Likewise I’ve learned I can balance my  hormones to control the emergence of hot flashes and moodiness by a daily use of doTERRA Balance on the bottom of my feet in the morning. This oil contains Blue Tansy as well as Blue Chamomile, Osmanthus and other plants to help create that relief from stress, anxiety and moodiness. Again, flowers and plants driving to a more centered happy momma who can watch my son earn a karate belt and not miss it because there are too many tears in my eyes.
