I love my job. I have variety, autonomy, and a sense of accomplishment at the end of every day. My employers trust me implicitly and that is not something I take for granted.
However, no matter how much I love my job, sometimes I just have a rough day—and sometimes for no real reason. So for those days when I need a little extra emotional support, my Young Living Premium Starter Kit keeps me going, helps me make sound decisions, and puts me in a positive frame of mind.
So how do I use my PSK at work? I use specific oils that are tailored to give me what I need to get through the day.
I can’t tell you how much I love this oil. It smells amazing—woodsy and fresh. But I find that it’s very grounding, and it helps me to maintain a positive attitude.
No matter how much you love what you do for work, I am sure you would agree that some days you just don’t want to be there. On those days, I put a couple of drops of Frankincense on my wrists and on the back of my neck, then take a few moments to breathe in the aroma deeply. It’s very uplifting and helps me get past the slump so that I can stay motivated for the rest of the day.
For those days when coffee is just not doing its job, I pull out my bottle of peppermint. It helps energize me, providing that little extra boost that I need to do my job well.
As you know, I use peppermint all the time. This is the Swiss Army Knife in my PSK. There are so many different ways I utilize this oil, as the previous five blogs in this series can testify, and I never get enough. I love it!
Peace and Calming
Do you ever wake up on the wrong side of the bed? This oil is great for when I wake up in a bad mood or just feel stressed during the day. It has a deep green color and a lovely sweet aroma—it is liquid positivity!
It’s a blend of Ylang Ylang, orange, tangerine, patchouli, and blue tansy, and it doesn’t take long for the benefits to take effect. I feel a sense of peace and emotional well-being. As my mood begins to improve, my outlook on the day goes from black and gray to bright and sunny.
I can’t believe this is the first time in this series I am talking about this amazing oil! This is a blend of black spruce, blue tansy, camphor wood, geranium, and frankincense. It has a semi-sweet woodsy scent that is uplifting and empowering. This is specially formulated to balance energies and to instill courage, confidence, and self-esteem.
If you need a little burst of courage to give a presentation, or deal with an issue at work, or to overcome the fear of failing at the task in front of you, do not underestimate the power of this essential oil blend. It can give you exactly what you need—courage and strength—when you need it most.
I use Valor for this purpose and a little more. I helps me balance my emotions. And when my emotions are balanced, I can think much more clearly. If I am at work or in any situation where I need to make good, level-headed decisions, I make sure to use Valor. It truly helps give me the clarity I need.
So there you have it—Frankincense, Peppermint, Peace and Calming, and Valor—oils in the PSK that get me through my workday. What do you use to give you a boost at work? Leave a comment below, I would love to know what helps you.
