Beat Stress with Lavender Essential Oil

Those of you who know me in real life know that I’m a Type A personality all the way.  I like for things to be a certain way, and I get disappointed in myself when things don’t go as well as I had hoped.  I’m way too hard on myself.  Unfortunately, those of us who are like this have a problem with stress.  Even if you aren’t like me, chances are that you live a very stressful life (because that’s just the way it is now, right?).  I’ll tell you how I beat stress – lavender essential oil!

I recently discovered essential oils.  I admit that I was skeptical, but boy was I proven wrong!  I only purchased essential oils to make a great homemade toothpaste (which I LOVE).  Then a couple of months ago, Sam and I were congested. I used some eucalyptus essential oil, and we were better than if we had used over-the-counter medications.

Since I had found success with essential oils, I decided to try to combat all of the stress in my life.  I used lavender essential oil from Avenir Oils and haven’t been disappointed in the least!  I’m telling you, if you have stress, you’ve got to give this a try!!

I’ll explain the ABC Method, then give a free printable at the end (so stick with me)!

6 Steps to Live an Abundant Life

Life is like a camera.  Focus on what’s important.  Capture the good times.  Develop from the negatives.  And if things don’t work out, just take another shot.

We all want to live a better life…we want to live the life we always dreamed of. That isn’t always easy, though, is it?  If you’re like me, you had a plan for your life.  No matter how much you plan and work toward goals, things never seem to work out quite like we had thought they would.  This post will give 6 steps to live an abundant life, even when plans take a detour.

Live an abundant life

2015 was a bad year for us, so it goes without saying that we were glad to see it go.  We had almost begun to feel cursed.  Sam’s dad was re-diagnosed with cancer, my dad’s health problems (mostly crippling arthritis and severe diabetes) got worse, and Sam felt trapped in his work (he works online from home) and graduate classes.  Continue reading →
