A Balancing Act and you are not an Acrobat!

by Penny Keay

Running here, running there, fixing meals, keeping house, going to meetings, exercise, social gatherings, kids in school, in sports, church or other commitments, and phew!

Stacked stones - balance

If your daily routine is making you jump through hoops, when do you get a chance to take a minute for yourself?

Balancing life between work, family and recreation, taking time for you can be a big challenge.

However, essential oils can help you to focus on what is important for the moment and take a few minutes each day to rejuvenate and refresh your mental state.

Remember the ‘lock and key’ mechanism in your limbic brain that is triggered by various scents and smells? Well, this is a good place for you to use your favorite essential oils.

Anything that can help you cope with the day-to-day commitments and let you take back a little time for yourself will help you balance the day. 

Essential oils are those subtle little things you do for yourself that might make all the difference in your life, to help keep you sane.

So to start the balancing act here is a fun little blend – easy to make that will help brighten your day. Diffuse it by your desk on a terra cotta diffuser or diffuse in your car while you are commuting. If you like, you can even put on/in an aromatherapy necklace.

The lemon is a bright uplifting scent, Peppermint is energizing and Rosemary will help with clarity, memory, and all together with concentration!

Balancing Blend

Lemon – 10 drops
Rosemary – 10 drops
Peppermint – 8 drops

You may need to adjust the Peppermint – add more if you like it minty or use less if it seems too over powering. If you don't like strong mint - try Spearmint. It too, will energize you.

Blend all in an amber bottle and mix well. Use as desired. Diffuse in any room or use in any personal diffuser – nasal inhaler or jewelry, etc.

Now, if life is causing you more stress you may need to use some special essential oils to deal with the anxiety and panic that can sometimes creep in.

Neroli, Jasmine, Rose all help with stressful situations. These florals all work on the emotional centers of your brain and help you to calm yourself from within your mind. As a result, you will see it change your physical tensions as you become less anxious.

Anxiety Stop blend, Beautiful blend or Calming blend may be added to your daily routine especially if you have more on your 'plate' than you care to have on any given day.

Inhale, breathe deep, essential oils are pleasant and helpful. Give them a chance to make your life more enjoyable and less stress-filled.
