I carry Trauma Life Blend around in my purse every day. No, I’m not a hysterical person, and I don’t live in a war zone or in eminent danger of any particular kind. Be careful how you respond to the word “trauma“.
The word originally implied “unpleasant experience which causes stress.” (dictionary.com) Having teenagers constitutes trauma. My kids will certainly tell you that an upcoming oral report or exam constitutes trauma. When my kids go to summer camp for a week, our dogs most definitely experience trauma. Recently, my friend Reggie was nervous beginning a Young Living workshop meeting, and I grabbed the Trauma Life Blend. What was funny was her demanding to know which oil I was giving her, because she wasn’t THAT nervous…. you know, to need something-heavy-duty-for-people-who-are-facing-life-or-death like Trauma Life Blend. While I do know Trauma Life Blend may seem extreme, my grad school training also taught that crises are perceived, they are not objective. We are sensitive to what we are sensitive to, period. It differs for each individual. I encourage you to break out that Trauma Life Blend and use it as desired for situations that impact you and your family & friends. Don’t question whether the situation is “worthy” of being labeled a trauma, just enjoy the supportive aroma of the essential oil blend.
