I developed this 10 Steps to Wellness as a template for my wellness coaching. You can see that essential oils top the list. As a psychotherapist turned coach, and now as an essential oils educator and aromatherapist, I needed to create a visual for myself and my clients that reflects a wellness lifestyle. And I have gone a step further, creating my Essential Wellness Wheel which encompasses these ten steps.
Essential Oils are vibrant and terrestrial. Oils offer physical, spiritual and emotional support. Use them daily.
Food for the Body
The right food is vital. Know what foods nourish and keep you whole. Your body is your temple.
Food for the Soul
Self-care keeps you balanced and grounded. Find the right care for your soul. Be spirited and spiritual.
Your body wants to move. Exercise simply. Keep your body limber and flexible.
Touch can heal. Engage in a type of bodywork. Experience the mind-body connection.
We are of the earth. Use non-toxic products on you and around you. Feel energized and breathe well.
Your belly and your brain are connected. Support your gut. Ease your brain fog and stop irregularity.
Gratitude is contagious as are random acts of kindness. Learn to accept what you cannot change. Be graciously worthy.
We are all intuitive. Set your intentions and be mindful with your intuition. Listen and pay attention.
We gravitate toward others. Lean on those who love you, offer support to others who are in need and find a way to be of service.
Incorporating essential oils is a lifestyle change. Overall wellness involves changing our habits from food to cleaning supplies; from exercise to self-care. I believe that essential oils can support health and wellness and enhance our everyday living.
