Are you a lover of essential oils?
If yes keep reading as I share an amazing Face Tightening Serum, all natural below.
But first did you know that doTERRA essential oils come from parts of the world where they originated? Lavender from Bulgaria for example. Why does this matter, because those soils are rich in minerals and nutrients that you cannot get from just growing your own here in North America. This alone sets doTERRA apart for the others, but wait there's more.
Anyone can label an essential oil as "therapeutic" as there is no regulatory board for essential oils. Due to this doTERRA has implemented rigorous testing standards to set them apart. First, before it leaves its country of origin; 2 - as it enters the USA by an external source; and 3 - in the doTERRA lab, every batch, not just a sampling from the main batch, is tested and once it meets standard, it is bottled at their site in Utah. There are now warehouse in Canada...
Getting back to routine can be challenging, but it's essential for productivity and overall well-being. It's a huge part of self-care as you schedule it into your life.
With the planet heating up, so are we! Many places are hitting temperatures and breaking records. The sad part is, this is our new norm, so we need to learn to cope accordingly. This is a very important part of our self-care.
Feeling stressed and can't seem to find a remedy?
As I have been creating content for the self-care membership, it reminded me of the importance of "mind care" for our mental health. You see in the membership I focus on all parts of us, meaning, the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual. If we can maintain those four areas, we have a better chance at achieving balance in our life as we care for ourselves beyond the physical.
But first what do I mean by "mind care" and "mental health"?
When I was a kid (with transparency I'm mid-50's now) the term "mental health" was not used in my circle anyway, it was "mental illness" which through my limited paradigm back then, meant something was seriously wrong. I really did not know anyone who experienced it, so had no idea of what it meant. In fact the term scared me, as I figured it meant someone would be locked up or put onto some serious medication. Aaaahhh ignorance...
Let's zoom ahead to present day where the term "mental health" is used frequently, and...
The Art of Giving and Receiving
You know I used to think it was kind of a funny expression "The Art...", why on earth would anyone call it an art? Don't you just give and receive? Well let me share an epiphany with you that I recently had and why I now believe it is an art.
Growing up I was raised in a family where we followed my Mom's wishes of the Jehovah Witness, and did not participate in any holidays, Christmas, Birthdays, Easter, Halloween... all of them except for two occasions, a Wedding or Anniversary, then it was ok to give or receive gifts. Other than that there was no gift giving going on. So if you never married, you were SOL (sooo outta luck)! My gift giving and receiving "skills" were zero to none.
Now I'm not telling you this from a place of a victimhood as an adult, as it was what it was, however as a child I would say I felt like a victim because why was it every other kid got gifts, but I was not allowed to receive gifts?...
