In the western world, most of us are fortunate enough to have an abundance of food readily available, the worry about where our next meal is coming from doesn’t trouble most of us. And because of this abundance, we’ve lost sight of the fact that essentially food is fuel and that the purpose of eating is to provide our bodies with the tools they need for energy, functioning, building and maintenance. For many of us food is about pleasure, indulgence (and overindulgence) and we eat for a variety of different reasons, none of which relate to the idea of providing our bodies with quality fuel. We eat unconsciously, we use food to fill emotional voids or to be sociable and we fill our bodies with things that we all know aren’t good for us – in effect, rather than using food as essential fuel, we use it to inflict damage on ourselves.
Learn the essentials to maintaining a realistic nutrition plan that feeds your body and still allows room for fun.
Ever thought about the fact that you spend so much of your life at work? It does not matter what kind of work you do, from the retail environment, to the corporate office or doctor’s surgery, all work places can be enhanced by using essential oils. Physical, emotional and business health can be weakened if teams of people are working at levels that are taxing them. It is pretty hard to find nowadays, anyone working with a lighter workload than they had five years ago. I know myself; the demands of owning a business are enormous. However, with a little thought you can bring a relaxing yet productive environment into the workplace with the help of essential oils.
Picture this: you are at a networking event; there are 50 people in the room, including you. You are all there in the hope of expanding your business by meeting someone new or catching up with someone you’ve met before. You are all there to make an impression. How will you make yourself stand out in the minds and memories of everyone who meets you?
I wrote this book primarily for people to have for a quick reference to the emotional benefits of the essential oils. These recipes and ideas can be useful in business and in personal life. It has been designed so that you can open it at any page and get something relevant to your life at that moment. You may open at a page and find an essential oil compatible with an emotion that you are, or have been, experiencing. You could then take the opportunity to use that oil or combination of oils to re-balance yourself.
I have also incorporated ideas, on what I see as the influences and causes of imbalance in people’s lives. This comes from personal experience and through working with my clients. You may turn to a page where the topic may “push your buttons” emotionally, and from that you will derive whatever message or relevant information you require. Use the book as you wish. I have written it in simple language, and have strived to make it as user-friendly as possible. I hope you enjoy it, realise the benefits of essential oils and their subtle talents, and learn to start living again.
