Day 182

I was feeling a little flat today. Some of that was probably the late night I had celebrating a soul sisters birthday. I am feeling fragile. It is my mum’s birthday today so we are heading out tonight for dinner. We are also having an afternoon of playing with essential oils as my friend Bree is over from Perth and she running a class for us. It was interesting to see how I can use these oils more in my everyday life. They have supported me on my grief journey and now I use them everyday around the home. I really feel into the power of plants and nature. I see essential oils as an extension on this. I use them to help to connect to my body and keep calm each day. I use them in my meditations and in my cleaning products. I am pretty obsessed. I find that anything natural that I can use to assist me I love. I don’t like having any nasty chemicals around the house and the day I found out I was pregnant last year I became pretty ruthless and threw out most of our cleaning products. I now make most of my own cleaning products and even deodorant! For emotional support I used lavender for calming, wild orange for uplifting, rose and other floral oils to connect into my womb and heart space, frankincense and peppermint to support me to get moving more and eucalyptus and Manuka as I just love the smell of  them together. I love how these oils can support us emotionally, mentally and physically.

Hamish I love you
