Yesterday I was awoken up unexpectedly and after lying in bed orientating myself I suddenly felt overwhelmed with ‘why bother’. I grumpily did a few breathing exercises and then began spinning my chakras to pull myself back into my body. I felt a bit better and continued with my mental exercises and it was still too early to get up. That was until I remembered that I was going to start dry brushing with an essential oil blend that morning!
The blend I am using is called Smart & Sassy aka as Slim & Sassy. It is a proprietary formula of grapefruit, lemon, ginger, cinnamon and peppermint known as the ‘metabolic blend’. It is unusual as it contains both cooling and warming oils, yet they are all stimulating to the senses and body.
I applied a few drops onto my body brush, the aroma wafted up and if I had any hint of sleepy grumpiness left over, it was a distant memory. Brushing my body with these oils felt as though I was dressing in them. It was lovely! I applied a few more drops to do the other side, got dressed and went to the gym.
I smelled yummy and fresh, which remained as I built up a sweat. I had been away from the gym for a week and thought that would set me back, when in fact I was stronger than when I had last been there!
I arrived home feeling wonderful! Had a shower and washed my hair and still felt rather good so I went live on FaceBook about my morning. After the video I did my oil pulling during which I would normally sit at the computer catching up on emails. Instead I went to put a load of washing on and bottle some distilled water. By the time I came back into the house I was able to brush my teeth. I did the vacuuming, washed the floors, hand ground my coffee beans and got it brewing, went to peg out a mountain of washing, came back in and had the best cup of coffee, and that was just the beginning of the day!
I had woken up rudely and not happy. The change came about when I remembered I was doing something new and exciting with my oils. Everything flowed on from there.
A side benefit to dry brushing my body with this blend is it stimulates the metabolism and I was able to focus on the lymphatic system as well. The past few weeks I had noticed inflammation coming up across my décolletage and up my neck. It was itchy and I had been wondering what angry, irritated emotions and words I had been suppressing.
The sensation took me back to when I was 10-12yrs and I had been taken to the doctor and put on some strong antibiotics. Within a day my body had come out in urticaria, which is a technical term for hives, and I had giant hives as well. Head to toe! The itching was unbearable.
I know that with all the detoxing I have been doing, my body is now releasing those drugs from my system.
Do you believe in coincidences?
