First Quarter Reflections and Essential Oils

I woke up this morning with a realization that the 1st Quarter of 2018 is almost over.

Well, sort of midway through, but it made me reflect about the months that passed.

Planning wise, I have switched from one planner system to another, destashed some items embracing KonMari Method of clearing clutter and creating calm. I have designated “jobs” for my planners; TNs for tracking, Hobonichis for journaling and Rings for projects.

Projects wise, I worked on some articles and had a short writing gig for some website and created some for my own sites. I also decided to let go of some endeavors and ventured into ones that interests me and what I see as constant is my quest for health and wellness.

I got interested in Essential Oils.
Specifically, Young Living Essential Oils.

I got curious wondering what is this thing that is taking social media by storm? Was it all hype? 

My package arrived!
So I decided to get my own Premium Starter Kit from the pioneer in the essential oils industry, Young Living.

I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to order online.

My friend, Vanessa, gave me her wholesaler link and I was able to get my own Young Living Premium Starter Kit at more than 50% discount. The shipping fee was not bad at 14$.

I have always been wary about US shipping to our country, so, imagine my surprise when, after 5 days, DHL was already knocking at my door with the package!


I was so excited that I immediately shared it with my friends and diffused Young Living Essential Oil Blends for a much needed relaxation after a stressful day.

At first, I was just enjoying the fact that it aromatically uplift the spirits. 

After a few days, I tried using it topically. For the longest time, I have been bugged by an annoying ankle injury that I used to have three years ago. It healed after weeks of nursing it, but last year, it came back.

August of last year, the pain started creeping in again.

It was manageable but really annoying… but, last month, it progressed. The pain went up my thigh and up my lower back – so bad that I have a hard time walking “normal”.

I tried everything, from warm compress, to cold compress, etc, nothing worked.
After researching about the science EO, I learned about Young Living's Panaway Blend (Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove and Peppermint) that naturally supports the circulatory system, along with muscles and joints.

Pre work out blend that helped me with my run.
Nothing to lose, I tried it the natural way by combining Panaway with Copaiba and Peppermint, and slowly did a back and leg massage, and was totally blown away!

Now, I can walk without any pain unlike before!

In a few days that I have acquired the kit, it had been really helpful in lots of things (specially my sleep)

Last month, I cannot "run".

The ankle injury that came back to haunt me last August has been persistent in doing so that I limp every time I wake up and hurts every time I walk.

My workouts suffer to the point that I have NOT been working out.

Now I can.

I’m just surprised with how it works and I’m starting to see why people are passionate about sharing Young Living Essential Oils.

Join me in my journey as I tackle these in my upcoming articles and how it is helping me in my everyday lives and the persons who I share this with as part of my fitness journey.
