Being a Girl and Dealing with It!

So part of having an organized home is a home that is calm and relaxed. That's a big part of what I strive for when keeping things clutter free and organized. But, things aren't always so calm when Mom is having serious girl problems and is screaming or tense or a mess! Right?

If you've been following me on Instagram, you notice that I often post about how our family uses an all-natural approach to healing - and have had our son seeing a holistic doctor since he was first diagnosed with autism in 2001. 

Today, I want to share remedies that I use for those girl symptoms relief using essential oils. AND, I am having a giveaway of my THREE favorite oils. Yay!! Below are a list of some of my personal symptoms that I get just before my period:

  Fatigue or low energy
  Face break outs, zits
  Feelings of tension or anxiety
  Feeling out of control
  Food cravings or binge eating
  Mood swings marked by periods of teariness 
  Persistent irritability or anger that affects other people
  Physical symptoms, such as bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, and joint or muscle pain
  Problems sleeping
  Trouble concentrating

  I'm going to share some of my favorite essential oils for helping me through girl stuff. Then, give away my three favorites to one of you!!

  For fatigue and low energy I use Elevation {Joyful Blend} and it also helps with my mood swings and irritablity. I can diffuse it or I like to apply it to my wrists and back of neck. 

For the mood swings and that "out of control" feeling, I like to use Grounding Blend and also diffuse it {sometimes together with Joyful Blend}. I might put on the bottoms of my feet

For my physical symptoms like breast tenderness {oh I pray no lunatic spammers find this post and leave crazy messages} and other cramping, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Clary Sage, which is every women's wonder oil! It smells amazing and I diffuse it and I can rub right onto where I have tenderness or cramps and it almost immediately takes that away. 

For break outs and zits, I like to use Purify and Melaleuca. I can apply those directly on the blemish - one or both. 

For everything else, I love Calming Blend. This smells so good, too! It's so calming. It really helps to keep me calm and less stressed. Again, I apply it to my chest, over my heart, or on my wrists - layering with the other oils OR I like to diffuse this one {especially at bedtime}.
