The Essential Lifestyle is about focusing on the core elements of amazing wellness, and YOU hold the power to create this into your reality!
To achieve this type of wellness, first understand the components that contribute to wellness, or if neglected, lack of wellness. The tools in this blog can get you started.
I have really come to understand how these 6 core areas really work together and if one of them is off, it effects the others. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming, taking small actions everyday will turn into a compound effect of new healthy habits and overall better health in no time!
Quality rest is necessary for your systems to reset and regenerate. Commit to giving yourself time to refresh and renew through appropriate amount of sleep every day. Learn the oils that your body responds to for great sleep. You may be like me, that when I hit the pillow, I am out in no time, but for others that isn’t the case.
Here are some essential oil suggestions for sleep:
Lavender, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Roman Chamomile, Serenity Restful Blend, or Balance Grounding Blend. There is also a Serenity Restful Blend Supplement that you can take in addition to using an essential oil.
Your body was built to move. As you keep moving, your body systems will stay active and healthy. Enhance activity with essential oils for muscle, joint, and respiratory support.
Here are some essential oil suggestions for active muscles:
Muscle Discomfort/Spasms/Stiffness: Basil, Lemongrass, Frankincense, Peppermint, Marjoram, Wintergreen, Deep Blue Soothing Blend or Aromatouch Massage Blend.
I really enjoy putting Breathe Respiratory Blend oil or Vapor Rub on my chest prior to exercise. It opens my airway and helps me breathe better. I also use the Deep Blue Muscle Rub to reduce inflammation and helps promote tissue repair on any sore muscles.
Stress Management: ?
Emotional and physical stressors are at the root of all illness and disease. Create time in your schedule to take a “breather”. Pause briefly throughout the day to enjoy emotional balance with your essential oils.
Here are some essential oil suggestions for stress management:
Lavender, Wild Orange, Frankincense, Bergamot, Elevation Joyful Blend, Balance Grounding Blend or Citrus Bliss Invigorating Blend. You can also refer to my last blog where I wrote about the six emotional aromatherapy oils; Peace, Console, Forgive, Passion, Cheer and Motivate.
Toxic Reduction: ?
Toxicity can be found in our water, air, household cleaners and chemicals, and many things that we put on or in our bodies. Minimize toxicity to create a clean envirmoment inside your body. Use essential oils to safely clean your home and detoxify your body.
Here are some essential oil suggestions for reducing your toxic load:
Lemon, Clove, Lemongrass, Grapefruit, Zendocrine Detoxification Blend or Slim and Sassy Metabolic Blend are great essential oils for gentle internal cleansing.
For house cleaning I suggest Lemon, Wild Orange or Onguard Immune Protection Blend to knock out those germs!
Pro-Active Self Care: ?
Knowing how to use safe, effective natural remedies is empowering! It allows you to restore health, prevent unwanted issues, and be prepared for the unexpected!
I have found that using natural products are effective, make me feel better and saves me money!
Here are some areas in your daily life that I suggest learning about your safer options:
Your toothpaste, deodorant, skin care, body soap and lotions, shampoo and conditioner, your pampering spa products and cleaners can all be natural, safe and effective! The less chemicals in your life, the better you will feel!
Body Fuel: ??
What you put into your body becomes your body. If you want high-energy, vibrant, high-functioning body, then put high-energy, vibrant, high-functioning food and fuel into your body! Add proper supplements and energizing essential oils to a great diet and you will feel amazing!
Here are some suggestions for body fuel:
Water, Water Water!!!! With dōTERRA citrus oils, they can be added to your water for an added benefit and taste! Ideas would be Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, and Wild Orange!
The LifeLong Vitality Supplements are the perfect combination of omegas, essential oils, vitamins, mineral, and antioxidants that your body needs to support every system in your body down to the cellular level.
