Restorative Ylang Ylang

Lately things have been mildly chaotic. Within the past month we have gotten a new kitten, taken our first ever overnight hotel stay with Munchkin, started planning and preparing our Thanksgiving vacation, fixed Munchkin's sleep schedules, went trick-or-treating for the first time, threw our first Halloween party, un-done Munchkin's sleep schedule, fought off sickness,started planning my SodaStream Houseparty, took up an exercising routine, had six little puppies born, Munchkin destroyed a cell phone, computer got a virus, and planned for two birthdays. It's been a little crazy.

I'm sure you guys have all been there and I bet there are some of y'all out there who read that and prayed their month had been so easy. The point is that I was getting ran down. I felt like Hubby and I haven't had any time to catch up and be together, that I was constantly chasing after a little tornado that is threatening to take down my house one day at a time plus seven new little additions. I was getting a little frazzled, stressed, and just not feeling like myself. That went on for about three or fours days when finally last night I had Munchkin in bed at a decent hour and decided to take a nice long, warm bath ( which I haven't gotten the chance to do in WEEKS)

So I got the water running, and thought " Hey...I'll put some essential oils in" but I didn't want Lavender like I normally put in, I wanted something new so I dug through my little bottles and AH HA! Ylang Ylang.
 I ordered Ylang Ylang because it was hailed as an Anti-depressant, Sedative, and even Aphrodisiac..hello! It has a rich, floral aroma and when applied topically it balances the skin and relieves nervous tension, exactly what I was needing.

I put two drops into the warm, running water and the scent immediately relaxed me. It was like I was in a warm little cocoon of peace. I was taking deeper breaths, and leaning forward to stretch my back and relax deeper, it was Heaven you guys!

I don't want to go into detail, but this stuff was like a calming, aligning, stella got her groove back sort of magic oil in the tub if you know what I'm saying. It's amazing.

Fun Facts:

Ylang Ylang is actually a floral fragrance that has been used by romantics for centuries.
