Empowered Self-Care with EO’s

You have four parts of yourself that are all connected: the physical body, the mind (your beliefs and thought patterns), your emotions, and your spirit. This is a foundational truth in my life, and in working with my clients.

I have had a pretty long journey with my own health and well-being. Along my journey, I was led to explore many holistic and alternative avenues of healing. Through it all, I came to really learn and understand how our physical body, emotions, mind, and spiritual selves all influence each other. In order to live life feeling your best, all four parts have to be supported and nurtured.

Essential oils can support these four aspects: your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual self. Being so well-rounded, essential oils have been a powerful compliment to my lifestyle that has really taken my self-care to a new level. Using essential oils is empowered self-care. Benefits I have experienced include:

  • increased energy – incredible I have to say
  • better quality sleep (therefore needing less)
  • digestive improvements – best my digestion has ever been
  • improvements in skin and dental health
  • better management of emotions like fear, anxiety, self-doubt, overwhelm
  • supportive of my spiritual connection and practice
