Self Care and Aromatic Dressing.

One of the things I love MOST about doTERRA, is all of the opportunities essential oils provide for self-care.

Whether it’s stopping to breathe in the aroma of a calming or grounding oil, applying purefume to my wrists or aromatically dressing after a shower, there are lots of ways to check in with how I’m feeling and choose an oil to support me.

Frankincense is a really beautiful oil that is used for Its soothing and beautifying properties. It can revitalise the appearance of the skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections when applied topically. When inhaled or diffused, Frankincense promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall spiritual and emotional wellness.

I don’t know about you, but Frankie is an oil I reach for A LOT! So grab this baby and support your skin and emotions in an epic way.

An Aromatic Dressing is a really beautiful way to connect with your body, to slow down and treat yourself at the same time.

It’s as simple as getting 10mL of carrier oil [Fractionated Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Almond Kernel Oil etc] and start with adding up to five drops of Frankincense in a bowl.

After your shower or bath, you’ll lock the kids out of the bathroom and spend ten minutes nourishing your skin, body and soul.

Start with your feet and toes and with slow, circular, upward motions massage the oil all over your body. Remember, this mix is safe for your face, so once you are literally covered head to toe, you can float straight off to bed feeling like an absolute goddess!!!

Bonus tip: One of my favourite combos is 2 drops Frankincense, 2 drops Lavender and 1 drop Wild Orange!

Will you commit to feeling like a goddess and aromatically dress yourself tonight?
