Natural Emotional Support
Oh my goodness, friend! Look at these oils I am LOVING to help me with both relaxation and emotional balance (I sure need those pretty often).
Lavender and Peace and Calming---Both of these oils are perfect for calming and relaxation when you really just need to chill out. Lavender is most popular for its ability to bring feelings of tranquility and Peace and Calming naturally relaxes the nervous system, allowing both your mind and body to take a break from the hustle of life.
Stress Away—This oil blend is pretty self-explanatory. It’s a combination of both calming (Copaiba and Cedarwood) and uplifting (Lime) oils. Stress Away works well when breathed in and also when used topically for physical stress as well.
Lemon—Lemon, like most citrus oils, is perfect when you need a lift in mood. It will help bring feelings of contentment and happiness.
Frankincense—This is probably one of the biggest emotional heavy-hitters. Frankincense is extremely versatile, but is particularly good for emotional grounding and often used during study, meditation, or prayer. Frankincense is a go-to for anxious feelings and helps re-center the mind and body. It’s been used in these ways since ancient times.
Valor—Valor was designed to help when we are feeling defeated, insecure, or frightened. This oil blend helps us feel more confident, giving us the courage to take the next step during big transitions or during emotional periods of life. You are going to love putting this one in the diffuser or simply wearing it as your daily perfume.
I've also benefitted from adding in a B complex supplement and an adaptogen called Ashwaghanda. During times of emotional stress(or any kind of stress), our body will benefit from the spectrum of B vitamins available. My choice is Super B from Young Living. I use the KOS brand of Ashwaghanda capsules and they also have a product called At Ease, Soldier that I keep around for occasional use. Exercise, eating whole foods, being intentional about rest, hydration and relaxation are also keys to managing our emotional health.
There is also the option of talking to a life coach, therapist/counselor or both. I am a certified integrative health coach and my focus is helping women who feel like their responsibilities, time and the hours in their day are spinning out of control and they are not really in charge of their own lives. Please don't hesitate to reach out for help.
Which of these do you need most in your life?
