You are capable of achieving anything you put your mind to. Every day- every minute- you stay clean and sober from drugs and alcohol, you are achieving something miraculous. Throughout recovery you will be presented opportunities to continue growing into greatness. You will have to face your fears, overcome your anxieties, and find the empowerment you need to move forward. From difficult conversations to difficult decisions, your strength and confidence in who you are will continue to build. For those moments when you’re looking upon another opportunity to grow, evolve, and be empowered, Rosemary oil can be helpful. Smelling good always makes you feel good, so try rubbing some on your most active pressure points like the underside of your wrists or your temples on your head next to your eyes. If you’re giving yourself a pep talk, put Rosemary in your aromatherapy diffuser to breathe in the empowerment you need. Using Rosemary in a diffuser during meditation can help clear the mind of anxiety to find strength in tranquility.
