The Oil of Shielding
As I am packing up for a trip back to Ohio I was looking at a few of my oil must haves, you know the usual like lavender, melaleuca, on guard rollers and then correct x because we are a clumsy family and with most def have some scratches! Then I grabbed my bottle of terrashield and made up a bug spray which we will for sure need, mosquitoes back home are vicious. And my kids swell up when they get bit, we don’t want that! So made a DIY spray to pack with us to keep them away. It’s super simple and I love that I can control the number of drops I put in I also add Rosemary in this for ticks and I like filling it with witch hazel so I can spray down all the things without fractionated coconut oil getting where I don’t want it!
Fun fact though, oils can be used for more than just bumps and scrapes and bugs!
They can be used for emotional benefits also, which is super amazing and I love how they work for practically EVERYTHING!! Like TerraShield, it helps keep pesky bugs away from us, but it also helps us create strong and sturdy boundaries. When you’re feeling emotionally attacked, you can apply this topically in your hand and rub it on your clothes and over your heart. This helps strengthen the shield around your body, helping you feel safe and protected. In order to be happier and live healthier emotionally we have to protect our boundaries. Hold strong to them and when you are needing a little more help standing strong use this blend for extra help! I started using this blend right before I went around certain people who made me feel gross and uncomfortable and at first I didn’t notice how it was working, but about an hour later I realized I wasn’t as anxious and I was able to just get through whatever it was. Here are a few ways you can you this outdoor blend:
Next time you're out and feel the need to protect your boundaries a bit more, try this blend!
Have a happy week- Amanda
