I need to remember that the Lord is always holding me. He will never let me down and all things work through him. Every day is a blessing because this is the day the Lord has made.
I suffer from a lot of anxiety. The times I suffer most are out in public. Whether it is going to the grocery store or the post office. I constantly feel like the world is watching me, waiting for me to make a mistake or parent the wrong way. This causes me a lot of anxiety. I literally start to have the racing heart beat, and shortness of breath when I am out in public.
To bring myself back to reality I always turn to His Word. I need a constant reminder that He will never let me down and that I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. If I did not have the strength of Christ, I would not be in this world.
Always remember that He who holds the stars holds you. He will always carry you through the rough times.
I have been using Young Living essential oils since October now. I first started using them to help with my anxiety but I have now found they are helpful for other issues I have. I really thought that mixing the oils with a carrier oil every single time I wanted to use an oil was cumbersome, so I finally mixed up some roller bottles for myself.
The first blend I made was for my Dragon Time. Dragon Time needs to be diluted to a 1:1 ratio with your carrier oil. To make the roller bottle I put in 10 drops of olive oil and then 10 drops of dragon time and I did this several times. I have not figured out the measurements yet to use teaspoons.
Dragon Time is a daily oil for me. Usually in the morning I apply it to my ankle. This is the first month I am using Dragon Time. I am hoping with will really help with my monthly cycles which are horrendous.
A word about Dragon Time from the Young Living Website:
Dragon Time™ is a blend of calming and soothing essential oils, including clary sage, which contains natural phytoestrogens – the perfect choice for women’s emotions during special times and needs. Its balancing properties make it a perfect choice for supporting normal, healthy emotions during the female monthly cycle. Dragon Time is recommended for young and mature women.
The next roller bottle I made was for my DiGize. I use DiGize daily. I apply it at night before I go to bed. I supper from Ulcerative Colitis which is an autoimmune disease that can cause very painful cramping and other not so pretty things. DiGize helps keep the inflammation in my colon in check. If I am having cramping I can apply this on my belly and the cramping usually subsides within 30 minutes. DiGize requires a 1:4 ratio. 1 drop of DiGize to 4 drops of carrier oil. Again for the roller I put in 4 drops of oil and hen 1 drop of DiGize. I alternated until my bottle had enough to last me awhile.
A word about DiGize from the Young Living Website:
Di-Gize™ is a dietary supplement that provides valuable aid for digestive concerns and helps support a healthy digestive system.* The ingredients in Digize are as follows: Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus), ginger (Zingiber officinale), peppermint (Mentha piperita), juniper (Juniperus osteosperma and J. scopulorum), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), anise (Pimpinella anisum), and patchouli (Pogostemon cablin).
I am really hoping that the roller bottles are going to make applying these oils a lot less cumbersome.
