As a wellness advocate with doTERRA, I have found empowerment through the use of essential oils.
Empowerment, we hear it all the time now but what does it actually mean? It is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights.
In my life personally, I’ve realized it is important to remember the key word, process rather than achievement. Whether we are striving for empowerment physically over our body, emotionally over dealing with difficult situations or over the direction of our life, we can only become empowered over ourselves, not others, so keep the focus inward. We fundamentally are who we are at the core but also become and take on traits from people we surround ourselves with. so choose wisely. Let’s not be afraid to reevaluate our circle, loosen ties where needed and develop new relationships so we can become the best version of ourselves.
I want to go back to our definition again.
“Controlling one’s life.”
We have control over our own life. Not the lives of others.
Essential Oil Benefits
And here’s the exciting part where essential oils can have a major impact! For those days when we struggle with our personal empowerment process and need a little “pick me up” to face the day with a smile…or as we need some extra strength, we can turn to essential oils. Not only do they smell good, but they work with our body on a cellular level.
They are easy to use! Just apply your favorite doTERRA essential oil(s) to the bottom of the feet, wrists and under nose and/or put a few drops in a diffuser and breathe in throughout the day. In addition to how they make us feel, they also help to support our bodies in healing from just about every condition we might be dealing with.
Essential Oil Mixes:
Try some of my personal favorites below!

Wear Your Oils!
Did you know you can take your favorite essential oils everywhere you go? That’s right! A unique way to “wear” them is inside the Cassiano Designs’ Haley Necklace. Simply add a couple drops of EO on the inserts and enjoy the aromatherapy all day. The beautiful stainless steel tree Locket hangs from a sterling silver chain, with your choice of black onyx or clear quartz beads. Wearing your oils never looked so chic!
