How essential oils can help you kick your problem to the curb!
Can essential oils really help us deal with the doubts, the toxic loops of self-loathing, the second-guessing, the feelings of helplessness?? In my experience, yes, they can. I’ve been working with the Goddess-ence blends for almost a decade, and have seen them change lives, transforming women from a place of “lost-ness” to a place of confidence, self-assurance and trust.
From time to time, we’re all burdened with questions that express our discontent with life… We roll our problems and doubts over and over in our heads to the point where we can’t see straight any more.
Don’t worry – you’re not alone!
Herewith are several dozen questions that I often hear in workshops or via email, and suggested tools to help you gain strength.
One of my favourite tools for bringing me back to centre (and therefore the perfect place for dealing with problems), is a combination of Goddess-ence 100% pure essential oil blends.
You will find my suggested combinations below, where I’ve also suggested some ways to use the oils, and an appropriate affirmation to help put you in a positive mindset for finding inner peace.
Combined, these power tools become Killer Kits so you can kick the problem’s a** to the curb, sister!
