As a Mom of three I know there have been so many times I have felt anxious. It is such a terrible feeling. I honestly greatly dislike to feel anxious so I knew right away this was one battle I wanted to learn to win.
Essential oils were a huge part of this journey. But before I started using natural products, I needed to journal what my typical week looked like and when anxiety was sneaking up. I needed to assess the triggers. I needed to know time frames and exactly how long and what would help me to prevent having an anxiety attack in the first place, and what I could do to kick it.
I created a framework to use and looked at it daily, then weekly, then biweekly and so forth. I updated it as needed. This helped me to stay focused and keep on track with my self care routine to prevent anxiety attacks. Hey, P.S. - I teach this exact framework to create balance! It can be used over and over again! You can book a call here to get started!
I made sure I was doing all of the basics too, like staying hydrated, started a sleep schedule, started waking up an hour before the little's, amped up my diet, and went for walks and stretched more regularly.
I then started to experiment with which essential oils I could use that were safe to use around the little's. Mandarin (Citrus reticulata), Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis), Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), and Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) became my go to's. I found that if I diffused Lavender and Mandarin when I felt like things were getting a bit chaotic, I was able to create a calm and uplifting environment which preventing anxiety from sneaking up on me.
I found that if I was already becoming anxious, using Lavender, Frankincense, and either citrus above helped my nervous system calm down faster.
I found that I could use these oils prior to certain occasions or events, or even certain times of the day to help keep us all on a calmer and much more pleasant level! Win Win! This wasn't just working for me, it was helping my children stay emotionally balanced as well. I was creating a more peaceful, fun, happy, and relaxing environment for us.
Now I am not saying that you have to use these exact oils, but I am sharing a few of my first favorites to promote calm, relaxation, and ease anxiety. You will have to do the research and check precautions of course! Especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or in regards to your child's age and health profile.
So how did I use these oils... well there are many ways one can use them. Here are some suggestions that might work for you:
