Here are some oils I use to get me through this part of Winter. In Minnesota it has been mostly below zero since before Christmas. If it is sunny outside, then it means it's even colder. The chances of getting much sunshine are slim to none.
I made an essential oil + crystal grid this morning focused around my February Bullet Journal Spread and center Sunstone.
I've encircled this month with sunny vibes and cheerful crystals. I've even added Vitamin D Gummies to this grid to ensure maximum sunshine and joy absorption.
In the center is my February Bullet Journal spread and my Sunstone. Citrine and Rose Quartz point towards the center to charge up my sunny intentions for a happy and cheerful month ahead.
Creating a crystal grid helps charge an intention. Use crystal grids for healing, meditation and to achieve your goals. All the crystals I have chosen are helpful in manifesting positivity, abundance and cheer. Each essential oil I chose to include in my grid helps with physical, and emotional healing.
I have been using each of these above oils a lot this winter. Some of the benefits of the above oils include happiness, creativity, uplifted mood, elevated energy, zest for life, and are the perfect antidote to SAD and depression.
Here is a brief description of why I use each oil: I use Rose for self-love, and Jasmine for happiness. I enjoy Citrus Bliss for welcoming guests into my home with happiness and for uplifting my mood and creativity. I use Lime when I am really feeling low. Lemon is wonderful so so many things including focus, air purification and cheer. Wild Orange is one of my all time favorites for feeling abundance and uplifting my spirits while simultaneously calming any anxiety I may be having. Tangerine is newer to me -- it feels like liquid joy!. Bergamot is another all-time fav! I use it to feel my best -- to increase my self-esteem and as a perfume -- it is one of my favorite smells. Slim & Sassy makes my tummy flat and helps with my digestion and self-image. Petitgrain wakes me up a makes me feel alive. Melissa is the oil of light -- it is the quintessential depression fighter!
I wish you all a happy February! May joy be with you!

When I was approached to write an article about what yoga is to me, I immediately thought of a recent conversation I had with a friend regarding cultural appropriation, capitalism and fitness yoga. You see, it’s easy for me to distant myself from a topic by intellectualizing it. However, underneath the academic catchphrases and meta-theory, there was a deeper story of the meaning waiting to be told.
In my junior year of college I was diagnosed with severe clinical depression. I say ‘diagnose’, it’s a neatly packaged term, when I really mean to say my life was turned upside down, violently shaken and put on hold for the next three years.
