My interest and curiosity about essential oils started 9 years ago when my son Marco was a new born and my mother was visiting from Costa Rica.
She mentioned lavender essential oil as a way for me and my baby to sleep better at night. I boughtmy first bottle of lavender oil the next day and added a couple of drops to my pillow and to Marco's pillow once in a while.
For a few years my knowledge and use of essential oils was limited to lavender and I was pretty happy with that, until 3 years ago I listened to an episode on the documentary The Truth About Cancer that was all about Essential Oils and I was fascinated not only by the prove and documented benefits shared by others but also about the variety of oils and uses.
My children have been witnesses to this increasing passion for learning more on how to use essential oils for wellness in our home, bodies and life and I love that both of them have found some favorite oils for their own use. Lavender is still Marco's favorite. He often asks me to put some drops on this pillow before sleeping.
Today I feel very happy to share with you my daughter's favorite oil. This oil is not only called The Happy Oil but it is also the oil of Abundance. And talking about Abundance, if you want to know How my daughter manifested money with joy (and changed the weather too) go ahead and read the blog HERE.
Lucía is a very steady happy little girl. She's not afraid of saying what is in her heart and she is also very emotional, sharing her feelings. Learning how to be a good mother for her has required supporting her in knowing that she is very powerful and that what other people do and say about her can only affect her as much as she allows them to.
I often say to her, that it is what it's in her heart what makes her a beautiful girl. She is one that goes around singing, dancing, jumping, skipping, picking her nose and lately giving her big brother a tough time too. :-)
So no wonder to me that she loves The Happy Oil. Lucía's favorite oil is WILD ORANGE. An oil that energizes you and uplifts you. You can rub one or two drops in your palms and inhale deeply for a boost of energy, creativity and inspiration. I do this often in the mornings before starting my working day, especially if I am feeling overwhelm about the day ahead and wondering if I'll have enough time for all that I want to do. When I inhale the oil I do it with the intention to connect with the energy of abundance. Abundance of time, of inspiration, of trust, of love and of resources to be able to do what I want to do.
It is also said that you might not be able to maintain a cranky thought while you're smelling this delicious oil.
Here are a few more ways you can use Wild Orange Essential Oil to energize and uplift your body and life.
- Add a drop to a smoothie or to your water for a burst of flavor.
- Rub a drop or 2 of wild orange in your palms and inhale deeply as you begin your day to connect with abundance.
- Diffuse to uplift mood and energy levels and to freshen the air.
- Add a few drops to a glass spray bottle with water and spray to clean counter tops.
- Place a few drops in your air filter to improve home's scent.
- Before a stress-filled day, diffuse for an energizing and revitalizing aroma.
- Carry a small bottle in your purse to smell for an energizing boost when needed throughout the day. Both for you and your children.
- For an extra energizing boost, dispense one to two drops in the palm of your hand along with equal parts Peppermint and Frankincense. Rub palms together and inhale deeply from palms, then rub on the back of neck
