One of my readers asked me the other day which oils I used for the scent therapy part of Family Hope Center’s program. I figured other people are wondering the same, so here you go. I ordered them from The Essential Oil Company on the recommendation of a friend. The point of purchasing there was you could get samples for a reasonable price. I also used the scent list she sent me that someone else going through the program recommended. Nothing original here. I may have picked up one or two others. I don’t remember.
Most of the samples were $1. Some were as high as $3. The oils came very quickly.
Anise, Basil, Black Pepper, Bergamot
Cedarwood, Chamomile, Cilantro, Cinnamon Leaf, Clary Sage
Eucalyptus, Fennel, Garlic, Geranium, Ginger, Grapefruit
Hyssop, Juniper Berry, Lavender, Lemon, Lime
Marjoram, Nutmeg, Orange, Oregano
Patchouli, Peppermint, Pine (White)
Rosemary, Tarragon, Tea Tree, Thyme
Vanilla, Vetiver, Ylang
Life has still been chaotic around here and yes, I confess I STILL have not started this. My goal is this week. I really want to get into it because scent helps the limbic area of the brain which is where emotional and attention issues stem from.
In other news, I’ve been discouraged trying to figure out how to get all the laps done when the boys are doing them one at a time and they need a large amount because we’re in a small apartment. Most of the time both of them on the mats at the same time doesn’t work. It ends up in a wrestling match or a yelling fight. I think I will cap Meatball’s laps at a smaller number, since Dr. J is the one who needs them more, though Meatball needs it as well. I think I also have to reconcile to focusing on math, reading, Bible and therapy. I have to get rid of homeschool mommy guilt and perceived expectations from outsiders and just focus on what we need to do for now. After all, isn’t that why I’m homeschooling?
I also need to get myself out of bed at 6am, something I continually battle. When I do that, things go much better.
So, there you have it folks. Hope it helps.
