Sleep is important. I think we all agree on that.
But what if you're not getting enough? What if you wake up all night long? What then?
Studies show us that sleep affects our neurological function, decision making skills, immune function, hormone balance, and more. It's crucial!
Doesn't that yawn make you feel sleepy?
Well, if you're struggling with sleep in any way, here's a product that has SAVED THE DAY for our family...
Serenity Essential Oil
Serenity Restful Complex soft gels
The aroma of Serenity essential oil is light, relaxing, and soothing. It instantly makes you feel calmer and more at ease. When applied to bottoms of feet or back of the neck, it brings feelings of peace and rest.
We diffuse the oil in all of our bedrooms at night. Then Michael and I take 2 soft gels before bedtime. We also learned from product support that the complex was formulated for a 100lb adult, so our 12 year old, who used to struggle to fall asleep, now takes 1 before bed.
Sometimes we will add in other oils if there's congestion or drainage going around... Or if someone is having bad dreams at night... or we want to switch up the scent! Here's one of my FAVORITE night time diffuser blends for you all:
We are about to enter a busy season in our lives. We have been accepted into doTERRA's Diamond Club for the 2nd time. It is a leadership program that doTERRA offers for their Wellness Advocates that includes travel reimbursement, incentive for new members, the ability to support out of town teams, and rapid growth for teams, while wrapped up in a competition among Diamond Club participants.
What that means is our life will be all doTERRA, all the time, for four months. We will be traveling all over the country. We will be growing out of town teams, in addition to our in town team. This will all be taking place at the same time as our kids wrap up second semester, our baby turns two, our hurricane child turns four, baseball season begins, gymnastics seasons comes to a close (until summer), our son on the spectrum faces lots of health and educational testing, and life continues at the same pace as it always does. Boy does it feel like we need some balance in our life!
There are seasons where it's time for a push though! And that's exactly where we are at! It is time for a push... it is time for some intense focus... it is time to run as fast as we can.
In times like this, where I feel overwhelmed with everything on my plate, desperate for some balance, I reach for an oil that brings exactly that.
I'd like to introduce you to my VERY FAVORITE essential oil:
This oil is one I typically apply to the back of my neck and/or wrists. I also love to diffuse it! It brings grounding, balance, and relaxation to my whole body!
Some of my favorite oils to diffuse or combine with Balance are Citrus Bliss or Wild Orange, Copaiba, Lavender or Serenity, and Siberian Fir.
In fact, this is my absolute FAVORITE diffuser blend. Enjoy!
I am a mommy of SEVEN (yes 7) beautiful kids! They are amazing, wonderful, hilarious & the greatest babies I could ask for! I am married to my best friend & high school sweetheart, Michael.
I love to craft. I love to decorate. I am passionate about natural living & natural birthing. Sometimes I write stuff. I plan parties like my life depended on it. My favorite color is pink. My house is definitely NOT taupe. I typically cannot keep plants alive. I am only allowed to have dogs as pets because all others tend to have the same end result as the plants. Luckily my track record with kids is pretty good! Also, I drink a lot of coffee. And I really like tacos.
