I was laughing inside when I read my email on Sunday that the free oil this month was BREATHE! How absolutely fitting because here I go with Chapter 1!
SINS OF THE FATHERS
Before I get into my own trauma I want to share with you: I do NOT blame my parents. They did the best they could with what they did have. They didn’t have resources and amazing things like Christopher West teaching Theology of the Body. Because well honestly Saint Pope John Paul II’s Wednesday teachings were barely taking place. And they were being sucked into the lie of the sexual revolution. And as many good wonderful Catholics, they were taught to suppress, ignore, and hide your sexual desires. After all good Catholics, good Christians, didn’t think about our sexual health. Thus, HOW could sexual health, non-the-less true sexual understanding of how beautifully wonderfully made we are, even be understood!
Then you compound it with their own traumas, wounds, distortions, and missing the mark of what Eros and our sexuality is really all about, it was a recipe for disaster. But I am not here to tell their story. It is not mine to tell. Yet their story did have an impact on my life. Therefore sharing this part is important to understand because their story does matter. Stories they hadn’t even shared with me until I was much older. Now I do believe there is a time and a place in sharing our stories with our children. I also believe there is a matter of the extent of the information. But there is a problem when we don’t share our journey with our children. We think if we don’t talk about it, well it won’t affect or impact another person, but it does.
A baby in the womb hears, feels, senses EVERYTHING! Our spirits are connected. So my mind may not have known what my father was struggling with but my spirit knew. It impacted me. My mom may have thought she was shielding me from the ugliness of how evil had touched her in a profound way by not sharing it. But my spirit new and it impacted me.
Again I say, because my parents didn’t have the equipment of TOB (Theology of the Body) to help them remember how beautifully wonderfully made they were, they chose to believe the lies from the enemy that they were ugly, they should hide in shame, they should NEVER speak about their sins, their wounds, their experiences to their children because that will cause sin within them. And that is exactly how the enemy likes it. He likes our hurts, pains, and sin to be in the dark. Therefore when we don’t communicate (communion), we divide. Think of Adam and Eve.
Now let’s take a journey with an oil blend to help you on your own healing and hope journey of sexual abuse, trauma, and/or past choices of sin.
BLEND: Patchouli, Eucalyptus, Lemon
Patchouli is the oil of physicality. It reminds us to become fully present in our physical body. It aims to connect our spirit with our body, to appreciate our body. We can’t get more disconnected with our spirit and our body than through sexual trauma and sin. If anything we have a raging battle within us to not connect because when we connect we will hurt, we will sin.
Eucalyptus is the oil of wellness. This oil encourages us to be responsible for our health. This means our spiritual health as well. Do you ever find yourself feeling a shortness of breath or a tightening in your chest when you have a flashback of a trauma? Do you find the same sensation when you think of all the missed mark choices you made concerning your sexual health? Those are promptings of your spirit to stop hiding from your sexual health and start healing. To seek out the hope and promise Christ gave us.
Lemon is the oil of Focus. The only way we can truly heal is to be mentally present. Lemon strengthens us to calm our fears of not feeling good enough. It will cleanse your negative talk of feeling tainted and dirty.
Two great ways to use this blend is topically or aromatically. You can just use the diffuser alone for inhalation, but when you use them topically as I am going to share, you will experience them in both ways: topically and aromatically.
Place one drop of each in your palm with some fractionated coconut oil. Rub together cup your hands together, bring to your nose and inhale a deep breath. Experience the scents together. Feel them enter into your cells, your mind, and your spirit. Do this 3 times. I always like putting the remainder of the oils on the bottom of my feet and on any body part I feel is holding onto negative emotions that day. Usually I know this by what body part I feel drawn to rub the oils on. Examples would be my adrenals, my heart, my thyroid and even my breasts.
Let’s end this chapter with prayer:
Heavenly Father…what trauma or past sexual choice have I made that I need to bring to the light, that I need to become fully present into my body and spirit to bring about true healing. Help me to be responsible with my health and cleanse me of all my negative talk. Help me to have the courage to visit with my parents and ask them about their sexual past if I don’t know anything about it. The more I bring my stuff to the light and encourage them to bring their stuff to the light, the more I will defeat the enemy.
Thank you Lord for being there always for me, for sending me your Son to remind me how beautifully wonderfully made I am. Thank you for the Holy Spirit’s constant prompting and guiding me on this journey.
I end with asking my guardian angel to continue to be by my side, for Saint Michael to continue to protect me from the snares of the enemy, and for our most precious blessed Mother to wrap me in her mantle to make me invisible to the enemy. In Jesus’ most precious body and blood I am strengthened and set free each and every day…..AMEN!

Sugar is such a mixed baggage of yuck! And at this time of the year it makes it especially difficult to try and avoid for everyone.
So I am going to confess. I was trying to figure out what to write tonight. I don’t normally have a brain block. Well life has been full (probably too full) and I was struggling with a thought. I posted on FB idea suggestions. And I received lots of great ideas. And the one that really stuck out for me to write about tonight was SUGAR!
It is that time of the year that everyone is going to start really struggling with it. It is going to be EVERYWHERE!
Now for me…
Growing up sugar was almost equated to “sin”, “evil”, “bad”. My parents knew it wasn’t good for us but they just didn’t know how to really express it and reinforce it in a healthy way. So for me unfortunately it was another thing that added to my baggage of dysmorphia and shame….especially if I chose to eat it away from them.
I fortunately don’t really crave sweet things. My cravings are salty, creamy, cheesy….lol. But I do love ice cream and chocolate. And even though I will find some really great vegan and sugar free options just the sweetness can trigger me into feeling like I am doing something I am not suppose to be doing.
The problem with sugar period…set aside any of us who have an emotional tie to it….it physically IS addicting! It messes with our hormones. It messes with our insulin. Which in return messes with our emotions.
How can we overcome any shame and “ick” with it!? Keep it simple….especially this time of the year! So many of us try to replace the candy and pies with alternatives that are “healthier” versions but they can still create emotional baggage.
Instead enjoy LOTS AND LOTS of fresh fruit and veggies! I am totally serious. The more we reach for these the better we will feel. Don’t be afraid to enjoy all of these. And truly keep it simple. Just cut them up. Crunch is wonderful and satisfying. And its actually quite healing! I also use lots of different essential oils to either soak my fruits and veggies in or just in my water to help me with cravings and add some fun flavors.
We can get stressed during this time of the year with family. When our hormones and emotions are out of whack it can make things even worse. It can cause us to feel even more shame, hurt, frustration….you name it!
Some tricks I use especially during the holidays but year round when it comes to sugar:
- A note in my frig that says “what do I really want?!”
- Lemon and orange essential oil at eye level in the pantry.
- Pausing to ask myself “what am I FEELING right now?”
- Will I feel shame?
- Drink 2 glasses of lemon/peppermint water instead.
- Remind myself I love myself too much to go through the roller coaster ride.
- Remind myself I love my family too much to put them through emotions.
- Remind myself: I AM A TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT….to be honored and respected!
But the biggest and best thing to overcome sugars seduction….keep it out of the house! We don’t have it in the house. And anything we have that is made with natural sweeteners I ask the above questions to myself.
What is your relationship with sugar?
Sit with this….pray about it…write….oil…and tap….I am truly serious :)! This seductive “drug” needs all the tools in our tool bag to resist.
Oh but finally…..if you do give into it…..don’t shame yourself….love yourself….give yourself grace and know that you can start all over that very moment!!!!
Because GOD LOVES US NO MATTER WHAT!!!
Many drops of blessings and prayers dear one!

Sometimes our energy is lacking. Our focus is fuzzy. And our mind needs to detox.
Lemon Essential Oil is helpful with cleansing the gut, cleansing our kitchens, and amazing for making lemon-blueberry muffins!
BUT…..it is a great oil to support focus….mental clarity….energy. What happens when we don’t love ourselves properly we lack focus. Focus on the things that are important like being able to be present in the moment. Self love needs clarity that we ARE WONDERFULLY BEAUTIFULLY made. When we focus our energies on self-love then we can find the joy in ALL situations.
Does your self love need a little bit of focus and zest?!

Today is not only the first of March but it is ASH WEDNESDAY!
What better day to start really assessing which essential oils can support us to break free from our addictions! The next 40 days you can experience lent like you have never experienced before!
First assess why you might have an addiction? What is the root? Besides FEAR! What emotions are branching off of fear?
- Fear of letting go?
- Lack of loving yourself?
- Trying to escape from deeper emotions?
- Deep anger?
- Lacking trust with God?
Whatever the branch or cause of your fear there are many essential oils that can support these emotions and help you reach a greater sense of peace to break through your addiction.
There are many oils and blends that assist with addictions but my favorites are:
- Bergamot: This oil supports all addictions, regulates appetite, relieves tension, helps break relapses.
- Black Pepper: Reduces craves, calms withdrawal anxiety, increases serotonin levels.
- Grapefruit: Reminds me I am beautiful NO MATTER WHAT!
- Lemon: Detoxifies the liver and the mind.
- Metabolic Blend (Slim & Sassy): This only only uplifts the mind and spirit it reduces toxic build up in the body and the mind.
- Rosemary: Helps me concentrate on my overcoming my struggles with God’s Will not mine.
- Soothing Blend: This blend reminds me this too WILL pass!
What addiction do you need to break from from!? Which essential oil resonates with you!? Sit with this…pray about it….write about it…
