If you’re an entrepreneur, you’re *hopefully* taking some much needed rest from your business to focus on refueling your tank, reconnecting with loved ones, and lavishing on the self care (both mental and physical!).
Since the holidays are upon us, most people are spending a lot of extra time with their family and friends, and even strangers when out shopping for gifts. It’s cold, the days are shorter, and we’re in close quarters with people more than usual. That can be a recipe for disaster, and as an entrepreneur you don’t have time to be down for days at a time, even during the holidays!
What’s an entrepreneur to do?
You have to take care of yourself before others, your business, or anything else. Are you doing the basics to make sure you stay well this winter? Eating healthy, exercising, going outside during daylight hours, sleeping enough, and drinking plenty of water are all things you should be doing to keep your immunity up.
A proprietary blend from Young Living, this is the King of all immune-boosting oils. Named after the Legend of the Four Thieves (Google it, it’s an amazing story!), it contains Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Eucalyptus Radiata, Clove, and Rosemary. It’s extremely effective when applied or diffused as a preventative measure. We recommend applying it to the bottoms of your feet every morning and to your wrists before you go out on the town. It smells like Christmas, so everyone will love how you smell when wearing it!
Yup, the same Eucalyptus used in the Thieves blend. It’s super powerful on it’s own. Eucalyptus probably makes you think of a soothing spa experience, or maybe you’ve seen the Pinterest posts where people have hung the branches of the plant in their shower. Do you know why they do that? The steam from the shower releases the oil in the leaves and helps open you up if you’re having respiratory trouble! The oil is fantastic for rubbing directly on your chest and neck, or diffusing with Lavender at night for stuffy-nose-free sleeping.
Another proprietary blend from Young Living, this one says it all in its name. Orange, Cinnamon Bark, and Spruce make up this sweet and spicy blend of the season. If you read our blog post 5 Essential Oils for Fall, then you know these three single oils are phenomenal for both your mental and physical well-being. You’ll want to diffuse this one in your office, living room, kitchen, car, and walking down the streets! It will keep you above the wellness line and in the holiday spirit all winter long.
One of the oldest known essential oils, Frankincense has deep roots throughout history. One of the most difficult oils to distill, it is highly prized among cultures worldwide, and for good reason. It helps with EVERYTHING. Immunity, skincare, postpartum, eye care, oral care, digestive system, nervous system. It even repels bugs and helps you concentrate better! So yeah, Frank for president.
Is there anything Christmas-ier than pine? That fresh, clean scent isn’t reserved just for Christmas trees. It is chemically proven to boost your mood, improve the appearance of skin, and relieve sore muscles. Anybody else’s legs ache after sitting at the computer all day? Slather that Pine on and get happier while you do! And much like Eucalyptus, it can be used to improve the respiratory system.
