Pure Magic in a Bottle

Why I have started using essential oils to improve my well-being

Tired and exhausted mummy just wanting to keep up with my pocket rocket toddler! I bet so many of you can relate.  Luna has been a breath of fresh air into our lives but oh my, for an individual usually full of beans and bouncing with energy, motherhood really did show me a whole new meaning to being tired.  Running out of ideas and really not wanting to rely on the good old constant cups of coffee, one because I didn’t want to be drinking tonnes of caffeine but two because how often as a parent of a toddler do you actually get to drink a hot brew while it’s still warm?
Something needed to be done.  Reaching out to a friend I had connected with through sharing common interests, I started asking about essential oils.  Being the awesome lass that she is, Natasha kindly sent me some samples over to start trying, Wild Orange and Peppermint.  Both of which have natural energy boosting effects when used in a variety of ways.  I began by diffusing a mix of oils together, making my house smell incredible (totally safe for the doggies too as well as promoting a calming atmosphere!) Alongside this, a couple of drops of orange in my water¹ and wow what a difference.  I was no longer feeling like I needed match sticks in my eyes and finally felt I could actually keep up with Luna.  These little bottles of pure magic have totally built upon the way I promote well-being within our home.
Intrigued by these wonderful little potions (being a huge Harry Potter fan I was definitely excited!) I began to find out more about how they can benefit our overall health.  Being a Children’s Empowerment Coach and pursuing my dreams of inspiring children to unlock their inner superheroes I was especially interested in how essential oils could benefit our children.  This is when I stumbled across the DoTerra Kids Collection…
