Stabilize Your Energy for Improved Mood, Clarity of Mind & Hormone Balance
doTERRA Balance Grounding Blend | dōTERRA Essential Oils
I like to think I recalibrate by settling into my "chill" setting. Aromatherapy has many benefits. When it's time to let some things go (like the day, the week, everything that has ever happened in existence....etc) or I need a time out from overthinking, overachieving and over...everything, this blend takes me there. doTERRA’s oils are harvested with integrity and are of a therapeutic grade. They are healthy enough to take orally (though this blend isn't suggested as such). I aim to take care, totally. That means that if it goes ON my body, I'd better be able to have in go IN my body because that's how absorption works - things from the OUTSIDE cross INSIDE - and absorption is what my skin does! This blend applied to pulse points has a grounding effect within moments. It's in my bag for subway rides, meetings, first dates and pretty much everything I prepare for. BONUS: The scent is also soothing to others so I get a lot of compliments while I'm publicly de-stressing with this product.
WHITE CERAMIC ULTRASONIC ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER
I have a diffuser in every room of my apartment. When I get home from my day, I smudge myself and my space and then, its time to start the misting engines. I love building blends that support balance and positive, calm mood. On the rare day I spend home, this process happens 4 times! (I value consistency). This diffuser is a solid piece of equipment. It's look is elegant, compared to the clunky plastic ones I've had in the past. I love Campo's ethos and design. An added bonus: the consistent bit of moisture added to the air benefits against the drying heat in the wintertime.
SNOOZ - Real Fan White Noise Sound Machine
Having soft, unobtrusive sound occur at the same frequency, consistently, for an extended period of time, balances. Sound waves are vibrations, your emotions are vibrations, your brain and your nervous system and body are run by vibrations of thought. Settle the vibes down, ladies. This sound machine is nice to look at and so relaxing. My heart rate begins to slow as I go to turn it on. It's just so easy to let up knowing I'll have the comfort of this sound in the background. It doesn't disrupt. I hardly notice it, consciously. But subconsciously, it works wonders.
Yin Power - Tonic Herbal Formula for the Feminine
Yin Power is balance. Most of my patients (and myself too!) are A-type, perfectionistic and DRIVEN. That's a whole lot of "yang" and it's taxing on our adrenals. When our stress levels go through the roof, we suffer. Mood swings, acne, aches and pains, lack of focus, weight gain - all of that can happen because stress takes us out of balance. Yin Power is a perfect blend of adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms - REAL FOOD, that support a better stress response. This is the real secret to being calm, cool, collected, SEXY and at peace while we TAKE OVER THE WORLD!
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping)
I met Sonya Sofia at Burning Man in 2015 when I attended a workshop on EFT. I didn't go to the workshop to learn "tapping". I went because I was told I would be able to be with anything and anyone, wholeheartedly as a result of attending. I am very intuitive and get absolute bliss out of being present and sharing love. A few too many bumps and bruises had me feeling like, perhaps I love too much and I'm TOO open. I felt shut down when I got to the workshop. Learning EFT and doing it for an hour that day forever transformed my life through a profound understanding of emotions and energy that gives me freedom in my sensitivity. The World Tapping Circle is a live webinar Sonya hosts Monday at 9PM EST where she takes participants through workshopping EFT on any topic you choose. You aren't on video, but you are guided. The privacy is great to let go and feel through whatever it is that needs to move up and out to clear your issue. I attend every week and have since I met Sonya years ago. I recommend trying a single circle ($9) and, if you experience the benefit, committing and signing up for the monthly membership ($27) so you can have the video library of hundreds of topics to practice with.
