Who isn’t stressed when it comes to the holidays? Planning that perfect gathering for your favorite and not-so-favorite relatives, especially that one who was weaned on wild ponderosa lemons as she grew up (or four ... if you were raised in an Italian family like I was).
What about holiday shopping? The crowds, the parking, the terrible traffic, the seemingly endless search for the perfect gift that sends you to Toys R Us for the 8th time; oh and don’t forget that white elephant and Mommy gift exchange that you signed up for.
How about cleaning because it is your year to host Thanksgiving? Or stringing lights when you live next to your communities’ reigning yard decorating champion? Nothing like the pressure to keep up with the Jones.
Then, add your corporate job stressors: deadlines, end of the year craziness, co-workers gone for a week or more and yet a client still wants or needs something that your co-worker is the subject matter expert in …
How Do You Spell Release?
This year my family and I are incorporating a few extra essential oils to help us cope with this hectic and potentially stressful time of year. Cue the a little Frozen inspiration from Elsa ...
*singing* “Let it go, let it go, can't hold it back anymore.”
If you are a mommy like me, you have learned to embrace that song and wear it like Queen Elsa cloak!
It’s time to “Let it Go” and release all of that stuff that can put a damper on your life, and I will tell you a secret *whispers* this oil is fantastic for the other 10 months of the year, too.*end whisper* *meaningful wink*
The oils that comprise this phenomenon in a bottle are:
Ylang ylang, Olive oil, Lavandin, Geranium, Royal Hawaiian™ sandalwood, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Spearmint, Lemon, Blue cypress, Davana, Kaffir lime, Ocotea, Jasmine, Matricaria, Blue tansy, and Rose
Release™ is a blend with a relaxing aroma that facilitates the ability to let go of anger and frustration. It also promotes and maintains harmony when diffused.
Be sure to put plenty of your release oil in your diffuser for when your sour and sarcastic Auntie Agnes comes over to your house for the holidays. (And maybe place your diffuser right behind her on the buffet, it couldn’t hurt right? I’m just saying!)
Helpful Hints: How do I use it?
Where can you put it? I always tell people in my classes there is no wrong way to use an oil, only a better application.
- Apply a few drops (2-4) to the wrists, edge of ears, neck and feet. I enjoy wearing it as a perfume too.
- Add several drops (6-8) to ¼ cup of bath salts (I prefer Himalayan pink sea salt) then add to your bath water.
- Apply to your vitaflex points.
- Inhale from the bottle, or your hands.
The Release Effect
Now that you have inhaled in all of the good and exhaled the negative out of your body you may wonder what are the side effects from using this oil? Release oil has a calming effect and when you are calm and in balance it will seem that those normal stressors no longer affect you like they once did.
So, bring on the holidays and bring on that sweet ole bitty Agnes because you have your secret weapon. Whatever is holding you back, or stressing you out, just grab your bottle of Release™ essential oil and “Let it Go...”!
