Anyone who knows me understands my struggle of work and sleep. I go through spouts when I'm cranking out hard work and am fine with very little sleep. Then it catches up with me and it feels impossible to get out of bed and get moving. This is particularly hard for me on rainy or snowy days. My first go to to get myself moving in the morning is a kick to my senses using some of my favorite DoTerra Essential Oils. I throw a few drops in my morning shower or bath and turn the heat up! 

Why I choose lavender. 

Lavender is well known for soothing skin irritations and relaxation purposes. The reason I use lavender to get me moving is it aids in reducing stress. When I can't get out of bed or get going it is linked to not wanting to deal with the stressfulness of my day ahead. A few drops of lavender essential oils, deep breaths and mindful productive thoughts is just the kick I need.

Little Boost of Lemongrass

Lemongrass essential oils is one of my all time favorites. The majority of the time it is the scent I choose to use in my massage space as well as at home. Lemongrass has a pungent, herbaceous aroma that can heighten awareness and promote a positive outlook. I can feel my mood and motivation heighten within seconds after using this oil. I recommend putting a few drops on your wrists and neck as well as defusing it in your office to keep your mood up all day!   

 

Fresh Start with a Fresh Face! 

On these stormy weather days I always make sure to pay a little extra attention to my skin. Orchid Facial Oil is my go to, it contains lush, exotic floral oils that provide skin with dewy hydration and glow. Formulated for all skin types in need of hydration and protection against visible signs of aging. I put my Orchid oil on first thing after washing my face and then continue to mist my face with Rose toner throughout the day as a little refresh.

Crystals all have unique properties that can help you on many levels. Every time I'm in need of a little boost I refer to my Crystal Bible and see what pretty crystals I need more of in my life. The three I've listed below are my all time favs! 

Quartz crystals are known as the "master healer" and will amplify energy and thought.
