I told Skye she couldn’t run around the house in just her underpants.

She looked me dead in the eye and proceeded to take her underpants off.

Without missing a beat, she continued playing the game where she dropped her brother’s parachute men from the second story to the family room below.

Not only was I stressed because I hate games that involve being near the open balcony and stairs, now I had a naked three-year-old running around

She does this often, taking what I say literally and using it to her advantage.

She is also wildly unpredictable, vacillating from wanting to spend 45 minutes selecting the perfect outfit and acting like having to wear clothes at all is worse than eating vegetables while walking backwards through the snow.

Clearly, I had to tread lightly. Because we all know no one can throw a fit like a threenager.

It took a while.

But after some careful negotiation, (if that is what you can call it when there is a three-year-old involved) I finally got her clothed.

But not before the neighbors walking by our kitchen window saw me chasing her, underpants in hand.

By the time she was clothed, and I’d talked her down from the balcony, I was frazzled.

I’d told myself I was too old to be dealing with this at least three times, and I’d vowed to up my work-out routine.

I needed to unwind.

Unfortunately, a spa day was not on the agenda, so I pulled out my essential oil diffuser and settled for a five-minute meditation.

It always amazes me how something as simple as smell can transform my mood.

The reason for this is because of the olfactory system – a fancy word for our bodies “smelling system.”

The olfactory membrane recognizes individual molecules and sends this information to the brain almost instantly. The two areas of the brain that receive this information are the limbic system and cerebral cortex.

The limbic system is part of the brain that holds our instinctive behaviors and automatic emotional responses. It facilitates memory storage and retrieval, which is why certain smells can take you back to childhood.

Since the limbic system establishes emotional states, our overall mood can be impacted by smell.

This is why essential oil diffuser blends are such a powerful tool in the crazed-mama arsenal.

Need to unwind?! Pull out the lavender! Need energy? Bring on the peppermint.

There is a smell for just about every need you can imagine.  Are you beginning to see why essential oil diffuser blends are one of my secret weapons?!

When we inhale essential oils, the olfactory system and therefore central nervous system is impacted.

In addition to affecting our moods, inhaling essential oils can have other benefits. They can cross into the bloodstream from our lungs, making it a quick way to deliver essential oils to the whole body. Additionally, inhaling essential oils can help combat respiratory infections like colds, flu and sinus congestion.
