Using Essential Oils to Heal Emotionally from Sexual and/or Ritual Abuse

I debated whether or not to share this online, because it’s deeply personal and I’m usually one to shy away from certain topics on social media. As much as possible I try to keep things light and positive, because while I acknowledge that there is pain and darkness that cannot be avoided I prefer not to marinate in it. (I believe that what we focus on expands, another topic for another day.) However the overwhelming number of posts I’ve seen on Facebook over the last few days from men and women alike have inspired me to open up (a little) and share my #metoo

I’ve dragged deep, heavy shame around with me since early childhood. I didn’t tell a soul until I was 17 years old. My abuser walks free in the same city I’m raising my own babies in.

When I finally had the courage to speak up, the police department said it was too late. My parents sent me to several different therapists. The last I went to was cold and dismissive. She basically told me not to feel special; 1 in 3 women have been or will be sexually abused. Here, have some Zoloft. 😡

I’m now 34 years old and only in the last couple of years have I found coping mechanisms that actually work for me. SARA essential oil blend is now one of them. SARA is an acronym for sexual and/or ritual abuse, something that is clearly more rampant than many of us ever imagined. 😔💔

I got this oil last month and I am very glad that I did. It’s a very powerful tool for recovering from painful experiences because it opens up the root and sacral chakras, balancing emotions and relaxing you into a space where you can deal with past traumas. It allows acceptance of the memories so you can release them and move forward. This also works with repressed memories that are literally stored in your cells. It plants the seeds for emotional freedom and peace. I am using this essential oil blend in conjunction with the oils in Young Living’s Feelings collection (especially Release, Forgiveness and Inner Child), frankincense, prayer, meditation and a supportive network of healers and friends who love me. To everyone out there suffering silently there are many tools and healing modalities available out there that can help you when you’re ready. Oils just happen to be one of my favorite. 💖 Love to all of you!

Stay Above the Wellness Line with Young Living’s October 2017 Promos

****** US OCTOBER PROMOS ******

Happy October, friends! Wooohoo, it’s FALL! The leaves are showing signs of changing and crisp mornings and cooler weather are rolling in, finally. Before we know it, it’ll be Christmas, but let’s not even think about that yet.   Instead, let’s take a look all the products in this month’s promos, which are geared towards keeping us all well and happy during this cozy season.

Cinnamon Bark Vitality 5-ml* (100 PV): Aside from pumpkin spice (obvi), is there anything more Fall than cinnamon? That’s why this Cinnamon Bark Vitality is the perfect promo for this month. Add a drop to your oatmeal or incorporate it in your baked goods to enjoy its spicy, delicious flavor, or add it a vegetarian capsule and take it as part of a daily health regimen. As an important part of Thieves and Inner Defense, you probably knew that it supports a healthy immune system, but did you also know that it helps support healthy digestion? That’s a fun Fall fact. 

Raven 15-ml* (190 PV): It’s inevitable; as the cooler weather comes in, our respiratory system takes a hit. So for those times when you’re in need of support in that area, or you just want to enjoy its refreshing aroma, put Raven in your diffuser and breathe freely. A blend of Ravintsara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus Radiata, it’s also great when applied topically to your chest or throat, where it will provide a cooling, comforting sensation. For those of you familiar with Raven, what’s your favorite way to use it or the diffuser recipe we all need to try with it this Fall? Let us know in the comments!

DiGize 15-ml (190 PV): Remember when I mentioned baked goods when I was talking about Cinnamon Bark Vitality? Well, sometimes the richness of the food we eat during Fall can be a bit taxing on our digestive systems. DiGize to the rescue! Rub a few drops of DiGize on your stomach to help ease digestive discomfort, or do it right after a meal to support healthy digestion! Seriously, I’m sure I don’t have to tell all of you how amazing DiGize is. 

Breathe Again Roll-On (250 PV): Ahh, Breathe Again. This roll-on is a must have for Fall (and as we roll on into Winter – pun slightly intended). With the shift in seasons and our immune and respiratory systems working overtime, the invigorating and refreshing aroma of Breathe Again will help you be at ease in cooler weather. Not only that, it’s great to apply on your chest before a workout or any other strenuous physical activity. I always keep a bottle of this in my purse during Fall and Winter, so I’m pumped that it’s part of the promos this month. Who else loves the Breathe Again roll-on? I know I can’t be the only one! 

Super C Chewable Tablets (300 PV): Our immune system needs all the support it can get, and even though we’re diffusing Thieves and doing our normal wellness routines, we still need a little extra help sometimes (especially as it gets colder). That’s where Super C Chewable Tablets comes in. Let’s take a look at the technical description from Young Living: “Super C combines pure Orange essential oil with a proprietary blend of camu camu, acerola, cherry, and rose hips fruit powder to create a powerful immune-supporting supplement. Together, these premium ingredients deliver desirable polyphenols, carotenoids, and optimal amounts of vitamin C in a convenient chewable tablet.” Basically, it’s really, really good for you and will give your immune system that extra boost it desperately needs this time of year.

To earn these FREE items, you simply need to place an order that meets the PV (point value) amount for whichever items you want. Note, you have to hit these PV totals ***in a single order***.  So one order of 100 PV, 190 PV, 250 PV or 300 PV. Generally speaking, 1 PV=$1 for most things. I recommend doing this on Essential Rewards so you also get points back for your order in addition to your freebies, so that next month you can get even MORE freebies!

The extra bonus of meeting these PV amounts with your ER order is that you get even more ER points to spend later.

So there they are, the fabulous Fall promos for October. What are you most excited about getting? Are there any of these promos that you haven’t tried before? I’m stoked on the free cinnamon vitality, since it’s one of the spendier vitaity oils! I have been diffusing this one like crazy!
