Why Self-Care is the Key to Your Success

Most women I talk to about their self-care routines laugh at me.  “I can’t even get 5 minutes alone in the bathroom to pee!” they admit.  It’s laughable, but also tragic…and I was one of these women for years.  In a world where those with the most energy garner the rewards, we women can sabotage ourselves by directing that energy wholly outward instead of balancing it with inward attention.  While energy created by your mitochondria drives your life force, it can also become easily sabotaged by neglect. Your energy is a direct response to how your nourish and care for your mind and body.

How do essential oils factor into your self-care and healthcare routines? Let me know in the comments below!



“Stress was always a factor for my hormone issues, and I can admit that. I just didn’t have the right tools at the time, when I was younger, to support me. Until I found oils, and they literally changed everything for me.” (5:50)

“By negatively labeling our hormones as the bad guy, we automatically dismiss our role in the ways that our body functions. It’s so easy to place blame on our hormones but we can’t act like we have no control over our bodies. Hormones are simply chemical messengers, and they are acting in accordance to our behaviors and our environment.” (9:08)

“When I began to see the essential oil and stress connection, I was just so excited at this beautiful solution that works instantaneously. So essential oils are the golden ticket to supporting this transformation in your life as they can bridge the gap from imbalance to balance while you work at recharging your systems by taking care of your overall health first and foremost. (15:45)

“As you are listening to the benefits of all these oils, you can tell they have all been proven for reducing stress levels in the body, and can be used for many other hormone-related concerns. But again they don’t work unless they are in conjunction with other healthcare and wonderful self-care habits. And, most specifically, if you are not using them consistently enough.” (24:18)
