March Madness

If you live in my area (Raleigh, NC), I don't have to explain "March Madness" to you. We are serious about ACC basketball, and everyone has a favorite team. (Go Wolfpack!!) The ACC tournament starts today and the Madness will continue until the NCAA has a winner.

However, for me, the madness began earlier, with one challenge after another. Car problems – yes, plural; clients who missed appointments; the loss of a very dear friend; and feeling so far behind that I just couldn't catch up. Thankfully, I had a wonderful, relaxed week in Sedona the last week of February to "power up."

Times like these are when I especially turn to Young Living essential oils. I not only use them myself, but I give them away like candy on Halloween since everyone around me is also dealing with their own stressful situations.

Don't underestimate their power. To calm frazzled nerves, try Peace & Calming, Tranquil, or Stress Away blends. Or try Lavender (the Old Faithful) for whatever ails you. Valor is good to use every day to restore a sense of balance. I've even pulled out some old friends I haven’t used in a while: Grounding, Hope, Harmony and Motivation, all of which helped me overcome feelings of being overwhelmed.

Some of the madness should calm down after this Sunday, when Mercury turns direct (yea!). Until then, I will keep "anointing" myself and everyone else with whatever it takes!
