Calm Me the Frank Down
There’s a moment in every mom’s day when she really needs
a drink a deep cleansing breath, a minute to herself, a millisecond when a child isn’t calling her name on repeat or lists of to-do’s aren’t running thru her head. I know in the real world, friends, that it feels impossible some days to find these little treasures.
When the patience is running thin, when sweat is dripping out of your pores from having to maintain your “I’m not losing my sh*t voice”, but the F-word is about to slip your lip, consider the wondrous, grounding (magical*) effects of Frankincense essential oil instead.
From the YL website: Frankincense essential oil has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Create a safe and comforting environment when you diffuse or inhale this empowering oil—a perfect opportunity to collect your thoughts. When you seek purpose or engage in prayer or meditation, use this oil to enhance your experience.
I admit, at first, I wasn’t really on-board with the way Frank smelled straight out of the starter kit, but now that I know how amazing it is, how great it works for me, how calm it makes me feel, this baby Jesus oil is the first thing I reach for when I feel stressed. Valor is 2nd. And Stress Away is great, but a bit too sweet smelling for me on its own.
This blend can be worn like a perfume, applied as needed to wrists, over heart, on brain stem, or inhaled for a little bit of zen in the midst of chaos. Or like an an armor when you know you’re headed into a hairy situation – but I would still put valor on my wrists in addition to wearing Calm the Frank Down when I need to keep a level head in the midst of a hot mess situation be it home, work, kids’ school, family fun time, mall shopping, etc.
Feel free to adjust the # of drops. Make this your blend, friends. Sometimes I’m feeling more lavender than stress away, sometimes more orange than joy. Try to keep the total # of drops to 40, but mix and match to find what suits you best. How will you know? The nose knows! Just do a sniff test. Start with 5 drops of each and add a drop or two next of each oil in order of your favorite until you get the scent that uplifts you most. The scent that relaxes you the minute the oils pass the blood brain barrier. I’ve had to refill my 10 mL roller so many times and each time it’s a little bit of a different blend. And that’s ok! It’s meant to be flexible. …just roll with it… Get it? Funny me.
*my use of the word “magical” is not meant to imply this oil is actually “magical”. Please don’t assume there is a tiny unicorn living in the bottle or that a rainbow or pot of gold can be found when uncapped. Neither will it grant you 3 wishes. This is just my testimonial for how this oil has worked for me. Not intended to imply this can “cure” “heal” or “prevent” any illnesses.
Starter Kits are honestly the best way to get the most “bang for your buck” and your on-going membership for discounts.
