Release Essential Oil Blend
Release Essential Oil Blend from Young Living
When I first purchased Release, I was visiting with a friend about the blend and she told me she was afraid to use it. She was thinking of the word “release” in terms of letting go of inhibition. Specifically, she was thinking of releasing those buffers that stop us from unleashing our pent-up anger and frustration on those around us.
I don’t think of “Release” that way at all. To me, it’s about letting go of those little or big things in my life over which I have no control. Things that frustrate me or get me a little angry. Things that may even turn out to be for the better good if I give them time. Release is a blend I reach for when my intention is to let go of those things, when my intention is to let go of my anger and frustration.
Why I Need Release:
I’m sure you can think of things that get to you. My list includes seemingly random policy changes at work. It includes road construction and that guy at the Recreation center who won’t walk the right direction on the track. My list is mostly a lot of little things that I give far too much importance to.
In the past, I used to let these things get to me. Thinking about them grew into repetitive negative thought patterns that became a habit for me. One negative, unhappy thought led to another, and then another. I was miserable and perpetually stressed.
These days, if I’m unhappy about something within my control, I address it. Overweight? Clothes not fitting right? I can take care of that. Main Street under construction, making it difficult to get from here to there? Gotta let that go. Favorite supervisor moving on to a new position in another district? Gotta let that go. This is when I reach for my Release.
I put a drop in my hand, rub my palms together, then cup my hands over my nose and mouth. Next I breathe deeply, exhale, breathe deeply again. Finally I rub the oil from my hands onto my wrists, back of neck, and around my ears. Aaahh. If my feelings of anger or frustration are still lingering, I will apply again half an hour or so later.
