Tips to help you get through the Holiday’s Festivities

Donna Wagner of Welcome to Essential Oils

The parties, the drinking, and the food can have your stomach doing summersaults during the holidays. Here are some tips to help get you through the festivities using essential oils.

Avoid overeating- Let’s face it, food is a major theme of the holidays. Between Christmas and New Year’s Day, food excesses can lead to digestive troubles. Try to eat slowly as the brain takes about 20 minutes to let you know you’re full.  That being said, in case of gastrointestinal problems, the Spotlight Essential Oil “Digize” supports a healthy digestive system.

Stay Active – Don’t neglect your physical activities during the holidays. It’s even more important to stay active during this period. Exercise can help you get rid of stress and forget about your worries for a while. If you feel like you are lacking motivation Peppermint Essential Oil will get you going, help boost your mood, and supports healthy breathing during exercise. Inhale prior to your workout for extra energy, and try rubbing a few drops on your wrist. Be careful..you don’t want to get in your eyes!

Prevent infections – Handshakes, kisses, and hugs are great ways to spread infections. Washing your hands often and keeping your hands away from your eyes, nose, and mouth. Always keep a small bottle of YL Hand Sanitizer — Contains no petrochemicals, mineral oil, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, dyes, preservatives, or toxic ingredient  – even better, leave a big bottle out for everyone to use.

Take time for yourself – Between shopping, cooking and hosting, make sure you take a moment each day to just relax and clear your mind. A few moments are all you need to unwind and recharge. Take an evening walk, listen to relaxing music, lose yourself in a good book and Diffuse, Diffuse, Diffuse  Stress Away is naturally delicious scents like Lime, Vanilla, Lavender, OR Peace and Calming is a gentle, sweet blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy.

Spotlight Essential Oil “Digize” is one of Young Living’s exclusive blend and is my must-have for fall and winter wellness and I never, ever travel without it because of how well it supports a healthy digestive system. This is a spicy, exotic aromatic blend. It contains Fennel essential oil, which people have used for a broad range of purposes since the ancient Egyptians.

Permeate the family room with this sweet and earthy aroma for a moment of togetherness after dinner.

Apply a few drops to your hands and inhale or Rub a drop of DiGize on the stomach clockwise to calm intestinal discomfort.
