Emotional support is one of the main reasons I use essential oils. I feel alllll the feels, the good and the bad, and have experienced so many benefits from essential oils: Valor, Stress Away, White Angelica and Sara. This special bottle was gifted to me from the amazing @breatheandbloomessentials, little did she know how much I needed this, and rely on this bottle of answers daily.

I don't know what I'd do without my dogs. Even on my worst days they are always by my side and capable of making me smile! No meds or therapy have ever been able to help me as much as my dogs do!

As of now Comet is my ESA. I've decided I want to go all the way through training him so he can help me with meltdowns. When he's ready he will be my service dog. It may take a while but he is very bright and a quick learner. I'm so happy I have him.

If you asked me what my favorite oil is, my answer would probably change weekly! This week I’ve been loving Lavender. It’s just so versatile! Great for your skin, I’ve been putting a drop on my big bits to soothe them (who else gets massive welts from mosquitos?!😖), I’ve also been loving lavender and lemon grass on my dryer balls! The combo of the 2 smells amazing!
.
.
.
And I’m still obsessed with lavender and lemon in my diffuser—so simple, yet so refreshing!!

What are your favorite uses for lavender?!

Sometimes when we are struggling emotionally, it’s hard to figure out what oils might help the most. This quick reference guide will be a great way to remember what oil to use depending on how you feel.

You may not have all the oils in the picture, that’s okay! Use what you do have either topically, with coconut oil on your wrists, over your heart, on your pulse points, or in your diffuser.

You’ll feel the effects of the oils within 30 seconds, as the aroma travels through your olfactory system and reaches the limbic system of the brain, which controls your emotions, heart rate, breathing, and many other physical responses.

I also want to share that balance will help support you emotionally, however you are feeling. It promotes a sense of well-being and balance and can be used to address any emotional state.💜
.
Have you used any of these today?
.
*Balance is one of the oils you get for free this month with my home Essentials kits! I have just 2 left from my weekend flash sale, so be sure to message me for more info if you’ve wanted to get started with oils.

MY MOM SAID ONLY 15k likes the FOLLOWERS DOESNT MATTER SO DONT FOLLOW IF U DONT WANT TO! Okay this is going to be hard and it probably won’t happen. Me and tori and our families have been friends since elementary school. Her sister was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma stage 3. Tori is an amazing sister and tries to make her sister as happy as possible. Sadly her family doesn’t have the money to help afford her a emotional support dog. If we can get this to 15k likes and me or tori can get 10k followers my mom said she will buy the puppy for Tori’s sister. Let’s see if we can do it? Please share to your stories it’s highly appreciated! ( if we don’t reach the amount of likes and followers I’ll still try to get the puppy for her anyways ) but it’s a challenge for a good cause. Much love!

 #❤️ ⁣
Y’all I’m in California now doing a Leadership Training that is intense AF. ⁣
⁣
Since so much of it has to do with changing unconscious beliefs and patterns, we talk a lot about our experiences in childhood. 😅 ⁣
⁣
(Our subconscious mind develops from 0-8 years old for those of you who may not know).⁣
⁣
I like to romanticize my own childhood by focusing on the good times and the positive qualities of my parents, but ya’ know what? It was also pretty tough. ⁣😬
⁣
My dad was a child of the 70s, a “hippie” musician, and unfortunately was a heroin user. He died in his sleep from heart complications when I was only six years old at the way-too-young age of 33. ⁣
⁣
My mom and dad had a complicated and very violent relationship. There was a lot of verbal and physical abuse. ⁣🖤
⁣
I was always trying to lighten the mood by singing and dancing and generally just being as loud and precocious as possible. ⁣🤹🏼‍♀️
⁣
When I look back and reflect, I can see how my soul chose my parents (and they chose me), so in the grand scheme of things I’m at peace with everything...but yeah, it was still hard. And I had to be really strong and really brave as a little girl. 💯⁣
⁣
This post goes out to all of you who also endured a lot during your childhood and are still here celebrating Dad’s Day with love in your heart. I know it isn’t always easy. ❤️⁣
⁣
xo, ⁣

Zoe is more than just my cat. She’s apart of the family. When I’m feeling down and upset she will hop up on the bed and lay right next to my head. Cats/Dogs are more than just pets. They know when something isn’t right and are always there for us. Animals are family. #catmom #catsofinstagram #enjoythelittlethings #bigeyes #emotionalsupport

One of my most favorite things about my life since jumping on the Young Living oily train is the ability to go to my collection of oils for support in so many of life’s challenges. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t use them and also suggest something for someone else!
.
One of my favorite humans is having surgery this week. She’s going to be confined to the house for a bit, which is not her thing. (She a bright, energetic, loving human who thrives on being overbooked.) When healing means your life has to change temporarily, you need all the emotional, immune, and frequency building support you can get.
.
I call this potion Speedy Recovery because that is what I wish the universe delivers to her. It’s a toxin-free fabric spray. It smells AMAZING and has some special oils combined just for her challenge and recovery. It is a small thing but being able to do small things for people you love means everything.
.
Speedy Recovery
🌱10 drops sacred frankincense
🌱10 drops royal Hawaiian sandalwood
🌱7 drops white Angelica
🌱5 drops sage
🌱5 drops jasmine
🌱3 drops rose
🌱fill a 4 Oz spray bottle half way with purified water and the other half is 80 proof vodka (in case of emergency 😉 j/k)

All the feels for The Feelings Kit ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 As @loganrandazzo says, this should be called "Good Day" protocol. This combination is all about self-care. But it's especially helpful for anyone who needs extra emotional support. 🥰 Anyone going through a hard time, needing to release stress, negative feelings. The Kit and Kit Protocol are pretty special. It’s a powerhouse of support when we need it most. I put all the oils into a roller for ease of use. It also makes an incredible gift. #feelingskit NB: The protocol is pictured on the third page. I can’t figure out the original source, if anyone knows, pls fill me in so I can credit. 👍🏼

✨Let’s chat emotions....
.
I’ve dealt with anxiety and panic attacks since the year that I turned 40 (I’m 47 now). It’s been a serious thorn in my ass honestly. Once very independent and outgoing, anxiety and panic attacks over the years made me much less social. I was embarrassed to share my struggle with family or friends. I became someone I didn’t recognize anymore.
.
Desperate for some form of relief or a way to better handle those moments of anxiety or panic, I first turned to yoga. Breathwork, poses, meditation, it was all incredible. It took some getting use to, but it was helping. Craving more safe, natural alternatives to managing my emotional wellness, next up was trying essential oils.
.
Truthfully, I was a huge skeptic of oils at first. I thought they were nothing more than some woo woo trend. Could something as simple as inhaling the oils from these little bottles of plant juice or applying them to specific points on my body really be the ultimate key to supporting my emotions? Yup. They sure did. I could not believe it.
.
I’ll spare you the long winded science chat on oils (though if you’re interested, send me a dm and we can chat. I love science talk). The basics behind how or why they work is that essential oils help alter our physical and emotional well-being by triggering our bodies own natural processes. Oils are made up of tiny molecules that can deliver very specific healing properties to the body systems that control our physiological state.
.
We all have stressors, difficult times, and I personally do still have the occasional day where everything is upside down, but the amount of support that I get from incorporating oils into my wellness plan has been incredible and given me my power back. They really are nature’s medicine. So much gratitude for my little bottles of plant juice.
.
If you ever want to chat more about my experience or how oils might help you, drop me a message anytime. Helping women find natural resources to support their wellness is my heart. 💕

The coolest sculpture in DC. It reminds me diversiry, variety, mixture of all different colors, shapes or textures. And yet it makes this cool masterpiece. Kinda like humans don't you think? We are all different in shapes, sizes, colors, languages and yet we represent one masterpiece...it's called humanity. 🙏❤

I’m back..... after a little break to take care of my family it’s time to get back into the social media world. Sometimes life throws these curve balls at you when your least expecting it, But it’s about how you carry yourself through those times and readjust your priorities.
This week it’s a good time to have a good week with all the positive vibes 🙌🏼

I’m back..... after a little break to take care of my family it’s time to get back into the social media world. Sometimes life throws these curve balls at you when your least expecting it, But it’s about how you carry yourself through those times and readjust your priorities. This week it’s a good time to have a good week with all the positive vibes 🙌🏼

70% of adults say they feel stresses or anxiety daily – you can bet I am one of them.⠀
⠀
I have found some simple ways to help reduce stress and anxiety. Each week I take time for me to curl up, read a good book and reflect on some of the small wins throughout the week.⠀
⠀
One for sure way is to be around my husband – he has always been able to make me laugh, laughing can relieve tension by relating your muscles. If you don’t have a funny husband handy, try watching a funny TV show or hanging out with friends that make you laugh.⠀
⠀
Learn to say NO can also help relieve stress and if you are friends with me, you know this is something I am T E R R I B L E at! You have to learn to take control over the small parts of your life that you have control over – don’t take on more than you can handle which will leave you feeling overwhelmed. Be selective in the things that you say yes to and work to say NO to unnecessarily things.⠀
⠀
Shhh… I went to therapy and I loved it. Mindfulness – one of the greatest tricks I learn. Mindfulness is a practice that anchors you to the present moment and can reduce anxiety. If you find yourself in a stressful situation and begin to feel overwhelmed, simple focus on feeling the breath coming in and out of your nose – is the air cold? Does it have a smell? And wa-la… you most likely stopped thinking out the thing that was stressing you out.⠀
⠀
Lastly, exercise. It is one of the most important thing you can do to combat stress. Studies have shown by putting physical stress on your body through exercise you can actually relieve mental stress. The benefits are the strongest when you exercise regularly! Exercise can lower the stress hormone cortisol, can improve your sleep quality and of course increase confidence!⠀
So go take a walk or laugh with a love one – your body and mind will thank you!⠀

70% of adults say they feel stresses or anxiety daily – you can bet I am one of them.⠀ ⠀ I have found some simple ways to help reduce stress and anxiety. Each week I take time for me to curl up, read a good book and reflect on some of the small wins throughout the week.⠀ ⠀ One for sure way is to be around my husband – he has always been able to make me laugh, laughing can relieve tension by relating your muscles. If you don’t have a funny husband handy, try watching a funny TV show or hanging out with friends that make you laugh.⠀ ⠀ Learn to say NO can also help relieve stress and if you are friends with me, you know this is something I am T E R R I B L E at! You have to learn to take control over the small parts of your life that you have control over – don’t take on more than you can handle which will leave you feeling overwhelmed. Be selective in the things that you say yes to and work to say NO to unnecessarily things.⠀ ⠀ Shhh… I went to therapy and I loved it. Mindfulness – one of the greatest tricks I learn.

It may be Father’s Day, but I wouldn’t be a dad without this amazing lady. She took care of me after knee surgery while 9 months pregnant, then produced another little golden child. Thank you, love you, couldn’t be enjoying Father’s Day without you :)))

🐱Official Introduction Of Sootie🐱
Hello everyplushie, I'm a small black cat that was given her plushiename today. 
My human is calling me Sootie, she says she chose it because I look like a 'soot-sprite' from some animated movie. Is that a good thing? She said she would put the movie on for me later. 
It's lovely to meet you all and I hope we'll all be good friends, I need some other girls to talk to because this fox is driving me crazy 🤣🐱

To all the single dads out there - Happy Fathers Day!!! To those who don’t get the opportunity to see your children as much as you’d like to - I hear you!!! My parents got divorced when I was a teen , in a time where dads didn’t get that much time with their kids. My dad was a wise man who always told me: it’s not the quantity of time I get to spend with you, it’s the QUALITY!!!! He passed last year st 86. The leaves on this tree , I made from all his funky button up shirts. The citrus is from his orchard in Ojai, California. I am the person I am today because of that Quality Time. The impact is endless and I’m so very grateful for having a quality dad!!! #happyfathersday2019 #singleparent #singledadsrule #singlefatherhood #divorceddad #emotionalsupport #divorce #divorced #singleparent #dad #fathersday

It’s the last day of #CarersWeek2019 and I haven't said much about it. But @thenursemum, Kaytee said it better than I ever could! Please read:
.
Repost @thenursemum
'Carers Week is all about the unpaid carer. The carer that does the job without a contract, training or pay. But as a parent that’s just what you do right
.
Your typical parent doesn’t spend hours researching medical journals about 5 different complex medical diagnosis. Nor do they have to learn how to be a physio therapist, speech and language therapist, dietician, special needs teacher, nurse, knowledgable in the function and failings of internal organs.
.
Your typical parent doesn’t have to spend on average an extra £581 a month to live the average standard of life a person without disabilities has.
.
Your typical parent doesn’t have to think about how they will survive if their child doesn’t, with very real uncontrollable haunting visions of what might happen one day or the alternative which is caring for their child forever.
.
And yet that parent is expected to do more medically than is allowed of a paid carer.
.
Medication management, suction machines, replacing feeding tubes, attendance at all appointments even if they’ve not slept the night before or are ill.
.
There’s no clocking out or quitting. There’s no debrief. There’s no end it to and you don’t want there to be.
.
A parent carer faces hours of work they can’t physically cope with, watching their child’s health on a tightrope causing emotional havoc and on the worst days it feels like torture.
.
And then, in their exhausted state their child looks up with the most beautiful loving eyes+ one days it lights up your world making it all feel so worth it and another day it breaks your heart with guilt for how much you’re dying inside.
.
Whose caring for that carer?
.
If you know someone who is caring for someone - check in on them.

Meeting you at seventeen + me being fifteen, 
has given me the rare 
honor of watching you go from boy to man. 
From boyfriend to husband. 
From lost to found. 
From man to father. 
You are the hardest working man I know. 
Thank you for all that you do for your family. 
We love you so much.
Happy Father’s Day babe.

Meeting you at seventeen + me being fifteen, has given me the rare honor of watching you go from boy to man. From boyfriend to husband. From lost to found. From man to father. You are the hardest working man I know. Thank you for all that you do for your family. We love you so much. Happy Father’s Day babe.

PSA; saying you care isn’t enough. Saying you’re praying isn’t enough. Saying you want to help isn’t enough.
🎈
Maybe this is harsh. Perhaps my expectations of humanity’s ability to show affection are far too high, but I find myself often incredulous at the amount of sheer apathy people have when chronic health problems are brought up.
🎈
Sure, when you first get sick, or when you’re hospitalized for a long time, you may be sent a few cards, a balloon, some flowers. Whatever socially normative thing comes to mind. These gifts feel often like little platitudes. Like patting a crying child on the head and saying, “there. There.”
🎈
The thing is, just because hospital stays, health problems, and doctors visit happen more frequently to the chronically ill population doesn’t mean that we are somehow more equipped to cope with the emotional disaster that all of these things leave in their wake.
🎈
Far too often I feel like people give themselves a gold star because they say they’re praying, or they send a small card, or a random Bible verse. But verbally expressing your want to help and actually helping is not the same thing.
🎈
I understand that it takes effort to sit down and think about what someone could need, but with the internet it’s easier than ever to Internet stalk them, research gifts they may like, or if you’re really desperate you can always shoot the person a text saying “I want to do something help you. Give me one thing you need right now but can’t afford and I will buy it for you.”
🎈
Seriously if somebody texted me that I’d probably be moved to tears, cause there is so much we need but can’t afford. Too much.
🎈
I’m not saying you have to have money to care tho. You can offer to help clean, run errands, do laundry. Things that often fall through the cracks during medical crisis.

Emotional support is important, yes, we all need it, but you can’t ignore physical needs. Being sick is draining, financially, emotionally, and physically. If you truly want to support someone, you need to be willing to support them completely, not just in some metaphorical way that makes you feel like you’ve done enough.

PSA; saying you care isn’t enough. Saying you’re praying isn’t enough. Saying you want to help isn’t enough. 🎈 Maybe this is harsh. Perhaps my expectations of humanity’s ability to show affection are far too high, but I find myself often incredulous at the amount of sheer apathy people have when chronic health problems are brought up. 🎈 Sure, when you first get sick, or when you’re hospitalized for a long time, you may be sent a few cards, a balloon, some flowers. Whatever socially normative thing comes to mind. These gifts feel often like little platitudes. Like patting a crying child on the head and saying, “there. There.” 🎈 The thing is, just because hospital stays, health problems, and doctors visit happen more frequently to the chronically ill population doesn’t mean that we are somehow more equipped to cope with the emotional disaster that all of these things leave in their wake. 🎈 Far too often I feel like people give themselves a gold star because they say they’re praying, or they send a small card, or a random Bible verse. But verbally expressing your want to help and actually helping is not the same thing. 🎈 I understand that it takes effort to sit down and think about what someone could need, but with the internet it’s easier than ever to Internet stalk them, research gifts they may like, or if you’re really desperate you can always shoot the person a text saying “I want to do something help you. Give me one thing you need right now but can’t afford and I will buy it for you.” 🎈 Seriously if somebody texted me that I’d probably be moved to tears, cause there is so much we need but can’t afford. Too much. 🎈 I’m not saying you have to have money to care tho. You can offer to help clean, run errands, do laundry. Things that often fall through the cracks during medical crisis. 🎈 Emotional support is important, yes, we all need it, but you can’t ignore physical needs. Being sick is draining, financially, emotionally, and physically. If you truly want to support someone, you need to be willing to support them completely, not just in some metaphorical way that makes you feel like you’ve done enough.

I joke that I was a sloth in another life and I take sleeping very seriously! • Can’t forget my sweet dreams pillow spray and some calming essential oils rolled on the bottoms of my feet and wrists to promote rest and relaxation. My kids are hooked too and we always make sure to incorporate these into our bedtime routine 😴 Black out curtains drawn, box fan blowing, sound machine on, a few spritzes of our pillow spray and it’s off to dreamland for us! • What does your bedtime routine look like? . . . . .

Valor.

I can’t describe my love for Valor to you.... As the name would indicate, it was formulated to balance energies and instill courage, confidence, and self-esteem. ➡️ It’s also been known as the ‘chiropractor in a bottle’ because of its abilities to help the body self-correct alignment and balance issues. 
New job.
New hours.
Stress overload. 
Then, I started using Valor daily! 
My worries diminished and I was able to just enjoy things! Eventually, I started wearing Valor everyday as my perfume, and got so many compliments from coworkers. 🙌🙌 This lovely oil comes in the Young Living starter kit, or can be purchased individually!

Made another vest like this. Everyone seems to really like this style. Especially when combined with the WM Bandana and Traffic Lead.

Oh man. Today started with spilling coffee, deodorant on my dress (which I didn't notice until about an hour ago) and me being the only one in the office to handle everything. || Safe to say, I am looking forward to tomorrow being Friday and in the meantime I will be rolling this blend I got from @ashleydenise38 all over me, inhaling this perfect inhaler from @kaili.boos and thievesing it up because in stressful situations, I always get sick.🤦🏻‍♀️ Happy Thursday y'all- we are almost through with the week!💗🌿🙌
