Lemongrass, Patchouli and Cassia. 3 oils that I diffuse consistently at my desk when I'm working. I love them and honestly can't get enough of breathing them in. It's a little weird, but I know why I crave them so much and I gladly am responding to what my body wants...needs.
Let me give you the run-down of the emotions that are addressed by these 3 oils. If you're anything like I was a few years ago, you will probably roll your eyes and be like "yeah, yeah....voodoo magic and all the oils...". Keep reading...

After learning about the emotions addressed with these three particular oils my mind was blown! I was struggling in ALL of these areas...with decades worth of shame, guilt, hiding, insecurity, and having a toxic mindset that also included hating myself. Even though the thoughts of not feeling "good enough" or "disconnected" show up at times, when I use my oils - specifically these three - they help support me by balancing me mentally, physically and emotionally and give me the reminder to check my thoughts vs. what is true.
