Here’s the deal. I know very little about essential oils. In fact, I can hardly pronounce the names of several of them. One thing I do know is that I have always wanted to know more about them. I’ve been wanting to try them for the better part of three years now. But have always felt slightly unworthy to use them. Like, I am not hippy enough to use them. 😂 😂 I have like .. zero ounce of hippy or crunchiness in me. I don’t eat organic (I can hardly even say that I eat healthy). I had an epidural with both deliveries. I immunize my kids. I’ve never touched a cloth diaper and the one green smoothie I did try tasted like dirt. I threw it away and promptly went to Jamba Juice. The crunchiest thing I’ve ever done was breastfeed my babies. .. (Unless you count not shaving my legs throughout the winter). I think crunchy moms are the bomb.com. I wish I was as cool as you guys. I am a whimp who would rather use toxic western medications to drug my baby for my own selfish comfort. But you know what, we are both awesome in our own ways! Embrace it mommas! You do you!
Thankfully sweet sweet Karli sent me some essential oils to try out and said, you don’t have to have long armpit hair to use essential oils girl! Thank goodness for her. Because I have loved the oils she sent me.
When Karli contacted me, I was having some hard times emotionally. We had just moved to a new place, we didn’t know anybody here, and my husband left for 4 weeks. And I am just going to say it, I am not a perfect mom. I have plenty of good days full of fun and smiles. I also have terrible days where I feel like I am failing at everything. I would dare to say I am not the only one who feels this way. I have had issues with anxiety and accepting anything less than perfection. When my husband is gone, I feel the pressure to perfectly handle everything thrown my way even more. And the only one putting that pressure on me is myself. It’s just a part of who I am and I can’t explain it or reason with it.
So I felt easily frustrated and then consequently, I felt disappointed for feeling such a natural feeling. It was hard for me emotionally. But thank goodness for Karli. She sent me the dōTERRA Emotional Aromatherapy™ System. This system consists of six blends for emotional well-being. Each blend contains CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils that can be used aromatically or topically to help counteract your negative emotions and unwanted moods.
The six oils included in the kit are:
You can read more about these oils and the moods they promote by clicking on their individual links but I think they are pretty self explanatory. My favorite blend is Peace. It helps me to feel, just that, peace. I feel more at peace with my imperfections, and more content with myself. These oils definitely came at a perfect time and they were wonderfully welcomed.

Thanks for reading everyone! I would love to hear some of your experiences with essential oils! I am so happy to have them as a part of my life now!
