The Dreaded Women's Monthly...

Well I don't know about you, but after having 2 children and your monthly cycle over 200 times in your current lifetime - every time its due - I say.... F**k, PLEASE - not again!

My skin would break out the week leading up to - and not just little petite white heads... roaring, angry beasts that have a heart beat of their own.....! My belly would bloat (and no, not just from the over-consumption of chocolate in order to soothe the emotions bubbling up as D-Day draws closer...) - like swollen, tender and.... well fat-looking really...

and as I touched on before - the EMOTIONS..... angry, sensitive, sad, over-happy, over-whelmed and mean emotions... all in the same BREATH most of the time! (and mainly aimed at a spouse or poorly-timed small child, who just asks for an apple to eat...)

So - lets just go back for a second..... I wasn't always like this..... What changed?

Well I got married - had two children and I now have million things to do like most other people....

???

Even as a yoga teacher who meditates regularly and knows 'how' to breath - the fiery short-wick of a strong-willed Sagittarius, still takes the lead! Grumpy cow. <-- mild description 

Until 2 months ago....

I had started using dōterra Essential Oils mid 2015. Just started small and added a few slowly to my collection... On a whim - I purchased a blend called 'Clary Calm' which supports healthy function of women reproductive system for my sister who has a few ongoing issues with her upset angry uterus.

So - the Clary Calm sat in it's box for about a month (waiting for me to post over to NZ to my sister) until last month - DAY 1 struck....

I describe this day - well, as being kicked in the 'gina' - for the whole day... if not 2 days!!

Seriously.... it is shit. This is not an exaggeration ... as a fully grown 32 year old woman - it hurts.

And for some reason - I think of this Clary Calm - I rip into the box like a mad lady and feel the cool roller as I glide and apply it over my abdomen.... and then wait....

Now I did not time the exact minutes of how long - but IT WORKED. The throbbing subsided, a sense of calm came over me - I 'felt' nicer.... - So that was last month...

In the past month - I have just used it also - to help calm my mood mainly. And I love the smell!

Then yesterday - mid afternoon - had friends over and was preparing dinner... 

BAM! DAY 1 arrives....

The only lead up was a slight cramping feeling - where i swiftly applied my Clary Calm (and shared story with my friend...) and the appropriate 'catchment equipment' and continued as per normal with our visitors and my dinner....

No 'kick in the gina' symptoms - no raging angry - ok, I still had chocolate, but come on! It's Easter! ;)

A deeper sense of calm truly fills me - I love my Essential Oils and how they support my emotions both emotionally and physically - but this month - CLARY CALM TAKES THE CAKE....

Check out my new Essential Oils page on this website and see how easy it is to get some CALM back into your monthly cycle.... 

I will no longer be victim to my mood swings, my aching and tired body or my 'kicking of the gina' sensation.... As long as I have my nifty little roller - I will be one SUPER HAPPIER yogi..... :)
