Time. I struggle with time. One second my son is 9 months old, the next he is 9 years old. One second a loved one is there and then you blink and they are not. Worst, you blink again and it’s been 4 years since they have passed. I started to struggle more with time when my son, at the age of 25 months old was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and his life depended on me keeping track of time. Our life was ruled be time. Time is one of the challenges in my life and I have been working hard at trying to release my anger towards it and to accept it, and enjoy every minute of it.
Another struggle I have with time is that there is never enough of it. Day in, day out, I have lists that need to be done and there is never enough time to accomplish these lists. So when the time springs forward and we loose an hour of our day it really gets me. Today is no different. To help me release my negativity towards time I am diffusing my essential oils today. I am visiting my step-dad and didn’t bring all my oils with me so today I am diffusing, marjoram, bergamot and german chamomile.

I find that when my mood is off, diffusing essential oils really help. They help me to let go, to accept and to enjoy my day. When I diffuse within minutes of taking some deep breaths, I am reconnected with my heart and my moods change for the better almost immediately. I am so grateful for discovering essential oils and how they come into play every day in my home. Body, mind and soul. They all find a way to soothe, comfort and improve.

As always, please be cautious with the essential oils you use. Not all are made equally and some are NOT intended for topical use. You must be careful with exposing your skin to low quality essential oils as your skin absorbs the oils very quickly.
