Remember: you were the only one truly invested in the good times. For your abuser, those good times were simply a form of periodic love-bombing, a form of intermittent reinforcement that kept you under their control while feeding you crumbs.From the website: Thought Catalog
Abuse recovery can be difficult, to say the least. Your mind begins to wander over every word, every argument, every holiday, every gift given and hateful thing said to you. It can be a long, arduous process. Essential oils might possibly be able to help you manage your healing process.
Vanilla essential oil by Young Living is a great start, or addition to, your essential oil collection. Vanilla essential oil has relaxation and calming properties which can possibly help ground you and quiet down those whirling thoughts we can get when we are trying to make big decisions, and drastic changes.
If you wish to you can purchase just the vanilla oil. If you would like to exercise some creativity, you can purchase additional oils and create your own exciting blends to diffuse, wear with essential oil jewelry or rub on your hands and pulse points.
Here are some recipes to use with your vanilla essential oil. While I am always happy to add new customers to my business, these oils and recipes can be used with your favorite oil brands. I hope one day one of those will be Young Living.
Vanilla oil blends to try at home:
You are not alone. You might feel alone but there is always help available. Please look up resources in your area that can help you leave a dangerous situation and/or help you begin, or continue your path to wellness.
The more you love your friends and family, the more intertwined you can become in their lives. Drama can often lead to intestinal issues; stomach pain, poor digestion, etc.
Today I drank a warm mug of lemon ginger tea with honey and a drop of Digize Vitality by Young Living. Within a few minutes, my stomach had calmed down and I was able to finish digesting breakfast with little discomfort.
The greater of Young Living company and their essential oils blends, Gary Young, masterfully created several blends to help people cope with the emotional upheavals that can occur when we are too busy, stressed out and not eating as well as we could.
From Digize Vitality to Feelings there are several ways you can use Young Living essential oils to help you calm down, deal with overflowing emotions, and correct digestive issues brought on by life’s imbalances.

“Before you heal someone, ask him if he’s willing to give up the things that make him sick.”― Hippocrates
The other day I was on Twitter and saw a tweet someone had posted about trying to get their daughter to realize she is overweight and needs to do something about it. The parents had taken her to the doctor and she has obesity related health issues. The daughter’s response when told she needed to lose weight? “You’re fat shaming me!”. Since when did we start calling concern over obesity and poor health ‘fat shaming’?
Fat shaming: ‘You’re fat, stupid and worthless!”
Not Fat Shaming: “You are morbidly obese and you will eventually die, possibly after a lifetime of illness and reduced quality of life if you do not suddenly drop dead at a young age, if you do not lose weight.”
Obesity is not JUST being fat. It is another way of self medicating for a variety of issues, and it is incredibly popular.
There are ways of feeling better, of dealing with all of those swirling thoughts and emotions, that does not depend on food for grounding. What’s grounding? you ask? Grounding is where you are trying to stop feeling as if you are about to explode, or ‘float off’ into the vastness of space. because of your heightened state of emotions.
when our emotions are off balance it can lead to what is commonly joked about (but is not funny) as; ‘self medicating’. Self medicating can present itself in many ways; over eating, sexual promiscuity, drinking, drugs, even violence against others can be used as a way of feeling more in control and releasing those pent up feelings.
Healthy alternatives to self medicating include, but are not limited to; meditating, going for a walk in nature, working out to release tension out of your body and increase serotonin and endorphin levels, practicing deep breathing, and yes… using essential oils.
Many studies have been done on the healing benefits of essential oils. Advance oil blends go beyond lavender for calming or peppermint for boosting oneself into a good mood. From helping people to focus, to combating viruses and killing bacteria, essential oils can be used in almost every aspect of our daily lives for improved health and wellness both physically and mentally. While these claims have not been approved by the FDA, there are studies showing the efficacy of essential oils.

Remember that old saying, ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!’? Learning how to deal with life without the use of addictive foods and chemicals now, means you will not be dealing with the expense of trying to fix the damage from all of that later.
p.s. the book ‘The Four fold Path to Healing’ has nothing to do with Young Living and is not endorsed by them. It is full of great information and I placed it in the post in hopes some of you might be intrigued enough to purchase it and explore some different ideas about what it really means to heal.
p.p.s. The informaiton in this post is for entertainment purposes only and is not intended to replace the advice of medical professionals. I am not diagnosing or treating anyone. I am merely sharing my personal story of my path to healing.
In my continuing quest for improved health, and to keep myself as able as possible to fend of viruses, part of my health regimen involves a commitment of drinking Ningxia Red everyday and today is my first day.
My bottles just arrived and I am joining the team challenge to drink Ningxia Red everyday. I am also taking the,
For hair and skin health among other benefits. See list in caption.

- It is an antioxidant.
- Supports normal eye health.
- Supports healthy digestion.
- Can boost energy levels without caffeine.
- Supports whole body health and wellness.

This is a 30 day challenge. I still need to take before photos of my hair. At the end of 2003 and into 2004, I became quite ill and almost died. My hair fell out in clumps. It started to recover-ish and then I had cataract surgery a few years ago. The doctor put me on steroid eye drops which caused many issues with my health that I am still working on overcoming. One of which is hair-loss. I sometimes feel little hairs poking me when I rest my arm on top of my head. Either they are breaking off or growing back. I think they are trying to grow back but my hair line looks like an east coast shore line after a hurricane. It keeps receding.

The fact about trying out new plans to improve health is that you do not know if it will work until you try. I cannot make any guarantees nor predict how this supplement will benefit you, or that it will. It all comes down to how ill you are, how much healing your body needs to do and if you are diligent in taking it everyday as directed. In other words, it only works as well as you are committed to being well.
Wellness is not a spectator sport. Contrary to the dictionary, wellness is not a noun… it is a verb. It is a state of being well achieved through active participation. You do not simply read about things to do to feel better, you experiment and find a wellness path that works for you.
I cannot read about supplements and hope that through osmosis they make me well. No, I must work out which supplements are the most beneficial for me and then take them on a regular basis.
If you wish to explore your wellness path, let us do so together.
I started a network marketing career through Young living earlier this month. I decided i would not only use the cleaning products (the main reason I signed up) but I would also select a set of essential oils to try out and track any changes I experienced while using them. I am SO glad that I did.
the set of oils I chose are; Golden touch 1.
The collection includes: 4 oils to use internally, and three to use externally.
Taking these oils, rubbing them on pressure points, the bottoms of my feet and on sore muscles (the Raven oil), placing them in a diffuser and letting it run, had a noticeable impact on me both physically and emotionally. My sugar cravings have been reduced to almost nothing noticeable. If you struggle with sugar addiction you know how forceful the cravings can be. My mood has been elevated. Many of us have been in a perpetual state of stress since this whole ‘pandemic’ scenario began.
Long term stress can have detrimental effects on our bodies.
These oils are designed to work with your endocrine systems.
I cannot post too much about the benefits of essential oils or the symptoms of conditions which might benefit from addressing your endocrine system but YOU can do your own research and determine if using Golden touch 1 essential oils would be of any benefit to you.

PRODUCT RECOMMENDATIONS; THE THIEVES CLEANING KIT AND THE FEELINGS ESSENTIAL OILS KIT
If you have been wanting to begin your own journey toward improved health through nutrition, essential oils, and stones/crystals I highly recommend procuring a copy of this book for your health and wellness library.
This book is chock-full of recipes, explanations, and lists of healing foods and spices.
I have made some of the recipes. They are delicious! Think about what WOULD have been available at that moment in time. what could they have grown and preserved? What spices did they have access to thanks to trade ships bringing spices to them from the tropics? Seasonal eating took on a whole new meaning. Although they had spices and foods available to them that perhaps their parents and/or grandparents did not have access to, they still did not have refrigerated shipping, processed foods, etc. that we have today. Without refrigeration, preservation of foods, how spices and herbs were dried, bottled, make into infusions, etc. at that time are different, but not totally alien, to our way of preserving herbs and turning them into useful tools for improved health and wellness.
St. Hildegard thought highly of chestnuts and certain spices such as; nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, to name a few. She even has curry blends which do not contain any peppers which seem to be how much of today’s curries are prepared. I personally cannot eat peppers. her spice blends which do not use peppers or paprika (made from peppers) are of special interest to me, and other people who suffer when they eat peppers or the spices derived from peppers.
Since many herbs and spices can be enjoyed in food through cooking and infusion into wines and vinegar, it makes sense to become better at cooking if you; hardly, if ever, step into your kitchen unless it’s to toss out the take-out containers used to transport dinner to your door.
YOU CAN DO THIS! You can learn how to cook. You can learn about spices and herbs and how to use them in cooking, preserving, wine infusions, etc.
I will be covering more of this in upcoming blog posts and Youtube videos.

Do you use essential oils? Which oil is your favorite?
Oh, yes I did!
I have been using essential oils for decades. now I can bring their healing, cleansing goodness to people in a new way.
I have been wanting to write more and more about essential oils and their many positive uses for a while now. I started my YL journey with the Thieves Bundle Cleaning Kit. I want effective cleaning products that do not mess up my endocrine system.
