Why Essential Oils Need to be in Your Wellness Plan for 2019January 29, 2019 BY Rochelle Clark
Living your best life is possible, and it all starts with the first step! It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind and forget about our internal and external wellness. But the key to success is to care for ourselves first.
One way to do that is to start with a blueprint. That blueprint is your wellness plan in 2019. Sure, exercise and a healthy diet are an important component of that blueprint, but so are essential oils. Yes, essential oils!
Essential oils can help with your physical, emotional, spiritual, financial, and environmental wellness. Here’s how they do that.
Essential Oils and Emotional Well-Being
Our olfactory system is the most powerful way to use essential oils. One inhale of essential oils can change your mood or emotion within seconds and can promote a sense of well-being within yourself. If you need a self-confidence boost, certain essential oils can help. Enhancing your moods in ways you never thought possible can push you toward a new and improved mood.
I personally love to use essential oils to enhance my mood when I feel overwhelmed with life’s big responsibilities. Sometimes just one inhale is all it takes to get me back to my “happy place.” It can do the same for you.
Essential Oils can Support Your Healthy Lifestyle
No doubt your wellness plan in 2019 includes incorporating a healthier lifestyle. Whether your goal is to exercise 3 x per week, add more veggies and fruits to your meals, or if you’re just wanting to invest more in your health, essential oils can support your goal.
Essential oils are nature’s way of supporting your immune system, for example. Two ways I love to use essential oils in my day-to-day life are diffusing them with an aromatherapy diffuser or applying them to the bottom of your feet. Yes, your feet! You might not know that your feet have reflexive points that are connected to all systems of your body. But they are. This makes your feet one of the best ways to soak up the benefits of essential oils.
Ward Off Sickness with a Wellness Plan in 2019
No one likes to be sick. The flu, sinus issues, and allergies can all make it difficult to reach your wellness goals. While a healthy diet and exercise routine and hydration are the most important factors for health and fighting off illness, essential oils can offer support.
For example, certain essential oils can help to open your sinuses and lungs during cold and flu season. And if you suffer from dry skin as a result as your flu and sinuses, then try adding in some of your favorite flavors of essential oils to your creams or coconut oil to nourish it.
Spiritual Wellness Plan Support
Essential oils are well known to assist in relaxation and aid in meditation and sleep. If you want to get more rest in 2019, then take up some essential oils. And if you are looking to learn more relaxation techniques as you enter the new year, then think about adding a relaxing essential oil to your meditation routine. Trust me, it works!
Improve Your Skin Care Routine in 2019
Looking for a way to spice up your skincare routine? Then it might be time to think about infusing essential oils into your skin care products. Not sure how to do this?
Well, fortunately, I created a blog post with some of my favorite skincare recipes including essential oils. Check out this post to read my recipes!
Make 2019 the best year yet by adding high-quality essential oils to your life. It’s made a difference in my own wellness, and I know it will do the same for you!
