On Self Care Tools:
We all need to find our anchor points.
The ways we ground and take root, where the softening happens and the clarity appears, make the hard, hard work of continually showing up in motherhood possible to sustain.
There was a time when these feelings were easier to access for me, usually by my favorite means: movement. Movement gave me space and a chance to flee under the guise of freedom, where I could swing my arms or twist my limbs or run free through a forest and secure that I was forever free from perceived threat.
Becoming a mom, however, changed everything. My main coping mechanism was harder to access the more babies we had, the more that responsibilities piled, and the more sleep that was lost.
I had to find new tools.
The journey of developing myself as I mother over the past ten years has been revelatory. Many incredible tools haven been learned along the way.
The most surprising tool for me, with a profound impact for my sensitive system, is all the good that keeps coming from the pure plant medicines that dōTERRA provides with their therapeutic grade essential oils. These beauties have assisted in laying down whole new circuitry in this mama mind, with a nervous system rebuilding around the very truth that we can each choose our calm.
For tonight’s dose of aromatic self-care in the diffuser, I’m combing a fave mix of mine:
💧💧Juniper Berry - to face what lies in the darkness
💧💧Clary Sage - to continually develop the gift of feminine intuition 💧💧💧Lime - to celebrate this mothering life
These oils are anchor points for me on this journey. I’m confident they will provide the same influence for you, mama.
Join me in integrating this kind of subtle yet powerful connection of plant chemistry to your limbic system via all the pure smells that unadulterated essential oils provide.
Shift your mood.
Be your best version of you.
The way your kids need you to be.💗 We all need to find our self-care tools to sustain this mothering life. If you’re called to integrate oils, find them discounted here and we’ll stay connected on your oil journey, too: www.mydoterra.com/sacredrootmedicine
