Lavender: The Oil of Communication & Calm
Sweet family, this February, I wanted to share the self-love ritual with you which has been supporting me so beautifully since the beginning of the year.
From your open heart and into your open palms place one drop each of doTERRA Lavender and Spearmint with a dash of fractionated coconut oil. Rub your hands together and breathe in the calming and clarifying vapours deeply for 3 long slow breaths. Now, begin to lovingly work the elixir in upward strokes from your heart chakra to your throat chakra.
Authentic communication is an art form, which removes the need to lash out or leak out unprocessed feelings. In its place comes a more subtle and profound voice which offers kindness and clarity at the level of conscious communication. Transparency, integrity and truth are often intensely provoking to ears not ready for your heart to land. Discernment then is crucial to the way we communicate, for this I have been using this simple ritual creating a direct line from my heart to my voice in order to connect me to the words that are necessary rather than the words that I simply "need" to get off my chest.
When we offer communication, we come from congruence and authenticity. When we off-load as a form of communication it tends to come from incongruence and a desire to be heard.
Noticing where you off-load, over-share or lash out gives you vital signposts back to your heart space and to your unmet needs.
Allow this ritual to hold you. These brief moments of self-love practised with care and consistency bring attention to what you are asking for at the subconscious level, and remembrance to what you truly crave at the heart level.
Lavender Touch is doTERRA's product of the month, available free with any Loyalty Reward Order of 125pv or more. The touch roller is prediluted and perfect for use on the go, and a staple in my handbag for the kids.
If you don't yet have a doTERRA account with me you can purchase the Lavender touch under the "shop" tab at retail pricing for £15.33 or contact me on the booking link below to purchase wholesale for £11.50.
For my children, Lavender is the oil which has invited them into simple rituals of self-love. I always encourage them to breathe deeply and draw love hearts on themselves with the roller whenever they feel challenged or hurt. It's my go-to first aid for any cuts and scrapes too.
The combination of lavender - the oil of communication and calm + Spearmint - the oil of confident speech is so wonderful for our children too as they move through the world. These are potent and practical tools which foster habits of self-love, anchoring the limbic system in feelings of safety and disrupting habitual loops of fear and self-doubt. This is just as true for us whether we need support parentally or professionally.
