Teachers, as well as moms, need a secret weapon when it comes to school work.
I'd like to tell you about mine.
It comes in tiny little bottles and smells...
I never could understand why the Wise Men brought oils to baby Jesus.
I mean, what kind of a gift was that?
And then I started hearing the name Young Living. Again. and again.
So, I decided to give them a try.
I was so excited when my package arrived. We handled the bottles like they were precious treasures.
And you know what? In a way, they are. Treasures, I mean.
You see, the above oils are my secret weapon. Want to know why?
They keep us on task. They keep my girls engaged. They help us to focus and learn. Common Sense, Brain Power, Valor, Vetiver, Peace and Calming, Frankincense and Clarity are like Wonder Woman's bullet bouncing bracelets.
Excellent to have in your possession and get the job done.;)
The 5 oils above are my favorites for school work.
Common Sense & Brain Power work as a brain boost. A quick neck rub at the top of the spine with a few drops, applying on the bottom of the feet and/or diffusing works wonders.
Valor is a blend of the oils used on Roman soldiers as they went into battle. (rosewood/blue tansy/frankincense/ spruce) A few drops on the bottom of the feet/ back of neck helps with confidence in social situations, increases courage and confidence & releases worry.
-Sacred Frankincense contains sesquiterpenes and when inhaled or absorbed stimulates the limbic system (center of memory and emotion) of the brain. Helps improve concentration & clarifies thoughts.
Clarity wakes your brain up and helps with mental retention. It clears the mind and aids with alertness.
1 drop Brain Power
1 drop Clarity
1 drop Frankincense
Massage together on back of neck and they're ready to start learning!
Ah, the awesome Young Living diffuser. No icky filters, just a delightfully cool mist that spreads oils through the air. I want one for every room in my house! To energize myself and my girls I usually diffuse Lemon or Peppermint oil.
Lemon helps you retain information and increases attention. Hurrah! Sometimes Algebra can just about put me to sleep. And the smell is so refreshing! You can even put a few drops in water for an energizing drink.
Peppermint- One of my favorites. Love the scent! You can inhale it, diffuse it or put a drop under the tongue for a brain boost. It helps increase concentration, retention & accuracy. Inhaling while taking tests may even improve recall. (I'm planning on applying a few drops on my girls' wrists before they take their yearly tests. They can sneak a sniff whenever they like- just like cologne!;))
These beauties are for me.:)
Well, I do share them, but sometimes Wonder Woman has a rough day.
Tranquil, Peace and Calming and Stress Away are powerful stress relievers. Sometimes I just have to give myself a time out and find my happy place. These lovelies are better than Calgon! Tranquil is a delightful blend of oils containing lavender, Peace and Calming has tangerine/orange/ylang ylang and blue tansy and Stress Away has lime and other calming oils.
Peace and Calming is our oil of choice to diffuse at bedtime. I love that the diffuser has a light (like a night light!) and shuts off when it's empty. My girls sleep better and the scent is nice and light. They take turns hosting it in their rooms.
Maybe someday I'll get a turn...
Please contact me if you have any questions. I'm super nice- especially after applying Stress Away.;) Just ask my kids! I'd be happy to help you discover ways to simplify and enrich your health.:) I can assist with ordering oils or helping you become a distributor. Being a distributor isn't as boring as it sounds. It's actually kind of fun- and empowering. This post shows just a sample of what young Living has to offer. I finally understand why essential oils were brought to baby Jesus.
They are powerful gifts.
