I’ve decided that my oils are to take care of the outside. My environment. To eliminate harsh chemicals. To cleanse my senses. Plexus is to take care of my insides. Together they center me. Make me feel better. I have 3 reasons for starting down this path of good health. J, A and E. I suppose my husband as well. Lol!! I figure that if I’m balanced and healthy my world will become balanced and healthy. There is a lot of stress in a typical family but ours has extra.
I’ve been diffusing a rotation of either joy, peace & calming or stress away. The smells of the oils are natural and not that chemical fake smell that plug ins give. I always used plug ins before I found oils. I even stopped lighting the candles I own because of my diffuser. Today was a peace and calming day.
I’ve started my husband on plexus. Slowly. My husband, I think like most, are skeptical of all things new. Oils are weird. Drinking something pink is weird. So far however, he’s been pretty on board. If I set it out he’ll take it. Because of the nature of my husbands job (military), he’s required to keep a certain body fat percentage. I think there are a lot of people who would agree that the older you get the harder that is. I’m hoping that by taking outside toxins away and cleaning out inside toxins, that he will feel better and have more energy to keep up with the standard. I also have to admit that I have not been helpful with some of the food choices. This path I have started is out on is going to take time. Lifestyle changes take time. I think I’ll ask him in 60 days how he’s feeling and if he notices a difference. I think he will.
My journey will be different. My husbands stress lies with work. My stress lies with the family. Organizing and keeping up with schedules. Our journeys will be different. I have been what is considered obese my entire life, with the exception when I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, Graves’ disease. I am 5’6″ and 210. Now granted I have had 3 children, but that his still heavy for me. My ideal weight would be 170. That’s what looks good, healthy, on me. That is still over what the BMI says is healthu, but I’ve been below 170 and it does not look healthy on me. I am hoping with this journey of detoxification, inside and out, and a healthier lifestyle, I’ll be able to reach my goal. I know I’ll reach my goal. Plus I really want to run some 5k’s for autism, Fragile x and cystic fibrosis. I want to raise awareness. I want to run for health. I want to run for a cure.
You have to start somewhere.
