No Drama-Llama

Do you ever have drama in YOUR family?? I would not be surprised- there seems to always be that ONE person at least that seems to create some shift in the family dynamics. Well, my family is not any different. I have two brothers, both older than me, but sometimes you might not know it. My one brother seems to be the drama-loving one. He is charming and funny and has a great personality. He can be a really nice guy- but he tends to be the one who also knows how to manipulate or create the drama in my family of origin. The drama-llama. 

Recently, I had to travel to take care of some family property. The drama came unexpectedly. Well, it was in some ways expected. Just drama never is what you anticipate. I won't go into my family dealings here but I say this to point out that drama and ultimately the STRESS of the situation was quite large. Disappointing. Hurtful. 

Luckily it is not in my nature to retaliate with negativity but I always attempt to reach out in love. Setting boundaries and responding with love takes a lot of practice but I have had a lot of opportunities in my life to practice being firm but loving. I admit that I am not always flawless in this area, but I certainly know that I need to step back, out of the negativity and be thoughtful about my response. Oh, and ALLLLLLL the oils. Yes. 

The oils that have helped me in times of stress to support my emotions and my body systems are super important. I had my grief roller ball with me on this trip, as well as Valor, which is not only a powerful oil (and also called the "unicorn oil") but the definition of Valor is "great courage in the face of danger, especially in battle." Do you also think WARRIOR??? Man. 

Valor supports the body by promoting feelings of strength, helping the body be in balance, empowers self-confidence, and is emotionally balancing, supporting the body with ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, EMOTIONAL TRAUMA and ANGER, as well as being helpful with calming properties, reducing tension headaches and joint pain. This oil is a great one to bring to your chiropractic or massage appointment! Not to mention the other cool properties, like it reportedly helps relieves snoring (any one struggling with their husband in this area????) and aids in focus and attention.
Millions of US children have been diagnosed with ADHD: 
  • The estimated number of children ever diagnosed with ADHD, according to a national 2016 parent survey,is 6.1 million (9.4%). This number includes:
    • 388,000 children aged 2–5 years
    • 4 million children aged 6–11 years
    • 3 million children aged 12–17 years

Valor has 4 main oils in it: 
-Rosewood which purifies and supports a healthy immune system. It is emotionally grounding. 
-Spruce which opens and releases emotional blocks
-Blue Tansy which supports healthy muscular and lymphatic systems as well as combating anger. 
-Frankincense stimulates the limbic part of the brain, elevating the mind and overcoming occasional stress and despair. 

Does this oil seem to you that EVERYONE could benefit from this special oil?? 

Valor is amazing. It is one of my FAVORITES! It is a blue oil and you can tell that is is special. Can you see why? Now if only we can send the drama-llamas to bath in Valor....
