We could all use a little more of that, right? And with the big FIVE O approaching, I need all of the help in that department that I can get.
As I reached into my mailbox today, my hands grasped a package mixed in with the bills and junk. Oh joy! An unexpected package is even more delightful than a hand addressed envelope or a glossy new magazine.
My sweet cousin (you can find her blog here: http://rachelleann41.blogspot.com/) had sent me a bottle of Peppermint Essential Oil from Young Living! Oh my, it smells SO GOOD, and I swear I instantly felt a little more focused. According to the accompanying information, Peppermint oil can boost my mood and reduce fatigue. I can put it on my neck and shoulders to boost my energy levels. I can add a drop to tea to help aid digestion. I have already put it to use!
My cousin has started her own business, called Cottage Essentials. (here is a link to her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CottageEssentials ) You can find a wide range of all natural essential oils to enhance nearly every aspect of your life. Here is the website where you can learn more: http://www.youngliving.com/
I have a little experience with oils, I keep lavender on hand for calming, and eucalyptus that I use in a steam facial when I get sinus infections. I can't wait to learn more, and add to my collection from the Young Living offerings. The toughest part will be choosing them, but I see they offer assortment packages, that may be the way I need to go.
Do you use essential oils at all? If so, which ones and what do you use them for?
And to my sweet cousin, thank you so much for making my day! Hugs to you for the love you sent my way.
