December a Time of Giving

Following the month of giving thanks (November), December comes around and we are giving gifts to those we love. I can’t be alone here!? Whether you grew up celebrating Hanukkah, Christmas, Yule any other annual celebration, we all seem to find ourselves gifting others in someway as a “closing gesture” to another year gone by.

What a crazy year 2020 has been, with a Global pandemic of an never before experienced virus that overwhelmed our health system. This year has been fueled by the unknown and unfortunately at times it has manifested into fear for so many. Not a healthy way to live at all.

We huncered down with everyone else early in 2020 as we all listened to the media and local officials define our lives and offer their guideance. But I am telling you now, my family refuses to live in fear. We will continue to fight to stay healthy, by eating right, managing stress, getting a proper rest and sleep and supporting our immune health while we continue to support our family. We have never felt more healthy. We are diffusing daily, taking our supplements and yes I am sharing and helping others learn more about what we are doing so our friends can stay healthy too.

Initially I hesitate to share with our friends in the Motorcycle community, they may think me a little strange at times, but they are starting to appreciate the benefits of these alternatives for their health and wellness. And the business opportunity to help others has been thriving. I absolutely love what I do!

Now, as you know I love our essential oils and you are probably here because you love them too or at least want to learn more about them! So join me here for 25 DAYS of Gift Giving ideas with some daily recommendations of some of my favorite oils and products I give to my family and loved ones.

With the help of our resources and our friends at Essential Oils Academy for these beautiful info graphics, I hope you find some inspiration in these gift ideas. May you have a Happy, Healthy, and Strong Holiday season and may your New Year be Blessed with Health and Joy.
