Mothering twins has brought me to my knees, over and over again, in utter devotion to the miracle of living.
It has shown me how much I love, how much I care, and how closely I stand in awe of the Mystery.
It has also shown me how disconnected we've become from the earth, from each other, and from our natural rhythms. We are of the earth, and she needs us as much as we need her.
In my home, we cultivate an ecology of clear presence, loving connection, and alive energy with meditation, yoga, open communication, and the incredibly powerful products from Doterra.
I have been using essential oils for skin care, house cleaning, emotional support, natural beauty care, and overall wellness for 20 years. I have recently started using Doterra, and my kids and I love learning about all of the useful solutions to many of our modern problems.
Essential oils are distilled from pure and alive plants beings. They hold the essence, or soul, of each plant. Our sense of smell is connected to the element of earth, it is our most primal and deep sensory connection to our mothers, and to our human-ness.
Smelling these oils can shift our energy, our mood, and they can help us to ground ourselves more fully in the present. I use essential oils in many ways around my house, but primarily they are part of my deepening relationship with our earth. It is my daily practice of reverence for being alive on this planet at this special time.
Years ago, I stopped buying conventional skin care products, and started making my own at home. I use oils to wash and moisturize both my body and my face, and my skin loves me for it. Our skin is an organ, and she needs to breathe and feel. So many of the harsh and toxic chemicals that we put on (and inside) our bodies are making us sick, and we are ready for a better way.
My Daily Face Oil:
Wash face and remove makeup by putting a few drops on a warm and wet washcloth, and gentle massage away makeup and dirt. After rinsing, put two or 3 drops of oil on face, carefully avoiding eyes. Use morning and night.
Soul is your deeper self. It is your deepest wisdom, your most true essence. Your body is soul enfleshed. Soul is beginning-less, timeless, endless- it is THE MYSTERY.
Your soul, in its inherent wisdom, created your body, chose your life situation, and placed you here so that you can grow. Only your soul knows the way. Your speaks through your body. It is your sacred avatar that is utterly devoted to supporting you in living out your purpose for this life.
The natural scents and healing properties of essential oils speak directly to the body and to your intuition. It is a relationship that is deeper and more intelligent than your mind. It is a relationship of soul.
My favorite oils for Soul:
Beauty is who you are. It is not something you can make. It doesn’t come from outside. It is your essence, and when you let your essence shine forth with natural ease, you FEEL beautiful. Years ago, I had a realization that beauty is sacred. It is holy. It is not something that be bought or sold or broken or removed. It is your natural aliveness, and your unique expression. Essential oils work in harmony with your essential nature. They are co-collaborators in your soul’s evolution and your body’s beautiful vitality.
My favorite oils for Beauty:
Spirit is your highest self. It is your shining and expressive loveliness. It is your passion that carries you forward, and uplifts your life. It is your sacred impulse to create, to play, to dance, sing, and breathe.
I use essential oils for inspiration to work, to play, and to align more fully with my deep desire to share my light with you in ways that are useful and uplifting.
