So many times, when we are hit with loss, it may not be recognized as grief.
Any loss or change can trigger these feelings and leave us confused, lonely and scared.
Before I knew about essential oils, there were a few things that I knew could help over time (counseling, exercise, perhaps medications) but none that have helped as fast or effectively as when I have used doTERRA oils. Seriously!
Clearly, a death in the family would be considered grief. Here's a powerful example: When we got news of my mother-in-law passing away quickly, we were literally packing the car to head to the airport to be at her side. Unfortunately we didn't make it in time. My husband broke down and cried uncontrollably. I saw my young children trying to console him, but it wasn't helping.
I ran for my Emotional Aromatherpy kit and pulled out one that I knew had worked for me in the past. A few sniffs and swipes on the neck and body, and the harsh, uncontrollable sobs shrunk within minutes! Breathing and talking came back to normal and we were able to continue on to catch our flight. If I hadn't had this in my home, I know that getting the family to the airport in time would have been impossible, and our trip unbearably harder than it already was. I felt empowered to help my family deal with some of the most powerful emotions simply and naturally.
These oils are what I gift others when working through the deep feelings of loss, and what I continue to lean on for the ups and downs that occur in daily life. My oils are a crucial part of any First Aid kit, and I have learned to use them for emotional as well as physical needs. I am needing them a lot these days, having lost one of my dearest friends this week who loved these oils and all things powerful and natural in her passion for holistic wellness #mightymo. Keeping a balance in my day-to-day work and life calls for tools that are fast and effective. No side effects or addictions make these my go-to everytime.
