Why is it that once December arrives, we try and squeeze as much in as possible before the end of the year? Is it just me, or do you too try and catch up with all your friends for an “oh we must catch up before Christmas!” drink? It’s kind of like the world is going to end on December 31 so we had better catch up beforehand or who knows what will happen.
And the to-do list … as each day ends my to-do list grows and grows. All those things to do before the year ends! I can’t work this one out either… all those things that I have been meaning to do for months somehow in my mind must be completed before Christmas. What’s that all about?
Lucky I’m not a stress-head or all this self-inflicted pressure would be enough to give anyone a mini meltdown. Which has got me thinking… how many of you have mini meltdowns around December and Christmas time? I have two words for you (and me) SLOW DOWN!!
Your entire world is not going to come crashing down upon you if you don’t catch up with EVERYONE, or go to EVERY event that you’re invited to, or if EVERYTHING on the to-do list doesn’t get ticked off before December 25.
So, how about taking it nice and easy this December and make it a priority to be kind and thoughtful to yourself. What if you made this the year to start treating your body with a little more respect and not drown it with alcohol every night, over indulge in Christmas cakes and other goodies, forego exercise due to hangovers, and create a whole lot of stress trying to please everyone but yourself.
What if you shopped online, avoided the crowds and got all your Christmas shopping done weeks in advance? What if you stayed in and kept the scales balanced by treating the holiday season as a time to relax as well as party? What if you were more conscious about treating yourself like someone you really love and not place such stress-inducing demands on yourself? What would that look like? Sounds good to me!
The Be Genki Sensuality range was designed exactly for these moments – a blend of luxurious oils to help evoke nurturing feelings of love not only with others but more importantly your Self. I especially love filling my home with the Sensuality Oil Blend by burning the oils in an oil burner and will be giving my friends Sensuality Candles to help spread the love.
All Sensuality products contain the following essential oils:
Rose Otto is regarded as being a gentle aphrodisiac which helps to spiritualise sexual relationships and is reputed to help with refreshing a sad heart, and opening the doors to love and friendship. It is renowned as being the supreme oil of the heart chakra, which is the centre of love, whether that be love for one person or universal love.
Ylang Ylang and Jasmine are associated with evoking passion and confidence, releasing inhibitions; and are believed to have an erotic and sensual nature.
Lavender is reputed to act as a sedative in conditions of mental and emotional agitation and unrest, calming the mind, comforting feelings and alleviating fears.
Bergamot is renowned as having relaxing and calming qualities, as well as being uplifting and enhancing circulation.
Best wishes for a happy, healthy and loving December.
