Losing three family members and one being my father, I have been really sad. The doTERRA emotional blends have been a great tool for my family and me. We love the Console blend, diffusing it, using the Console touch topically. Our emotions have been all over the place this year. Just when I am getting out of my funk from my husband's accident three years ago and ready to get back to life and feel good, move forward. My kids have worked hard and they are doing great and ready to move on too. Then we have more loss to overcome and process.
I know everyone has their hardships in life and things can happen in a second. We all take so much for granite. Why does it take the tragic things to happen to wake us up? Why is life going so fast and why are we all so busy. I know I have slowed down and really worked on being present with my family. The most important thing to me is to spend time with my kids, husband and mother and be present for them.
We have used the Console blend for about three years now. When I am impatient, angry, sad, guilty and negative which I have definitely been the last three years. I grab the Console blend. I diffuse it a ton and I love using the Console touch on the back of my neck and on my family's neck. The Console Touch has been wonderful to rub on our feet for foot rubs before bed. Thank you doTERRA for this blend. It has been very supportive in our household.
Making sure you get some self-care and have a good support group. Let someone know you need some comforting and consoling, just someone to talk to and take care of you for a moment. If you can't find anyone, I recommend going get a massage. It is good for the mind, body and spirit and they are usually good listeners and then you can relax. Don't spend the whole massage talking. get it off your chest and then enjoy the massage. If you or you know someone who needs comforting, try the Console blend.
Here is some more information on the Console blend
doTERRA Console Comforting Blend of floral and tree essential oils will help you close the door on sadness and take your first steps on a hopeful path toward emotional healing. Bind your broken heart with doTERRA Console Comforting Blend.

Wild Orange, it is a great essential oil to share with others.
How we use Wild Orange
Not only do we diffuse it a lot. I love dropping it in the toilet and drains after cleaning. It smells so good after sitting there all day. My kids love coming home to a uplifting smell after a long day at school. This morning I used it on my oven, it is a great de-greaser and also gets stickers or sticky stuff off. I love to diffuse wild orange and enjoy a couple of drops in my water. I always have this oil with me. We have used for anxious feelings, stomach issues, calming and relaxing before bed, and foot rubs. I have made several DYI projects, it is great in your morning smoothing, vanilla or chocolate. A fun family project was making homemade ice cream with wild orange.
One of my favorite things to do with the kids is to make homemade soda's with a variety of essential oils. 2-3 drops of Essential Oils in Sparkling water with honey or agave to sweeten. You can also make tea with any essential oils of choice, just make sure they are okay to take internally. We also love a drop of citrus oil of any kind in our fruit salad
Cooking and Baking with Wild Orange
So many recipes to add this oil too, from fruit salads, chocolate drops, chocolate wild orange truffles, cranberry dressing, a drop in your water, french toast, breads, salad dressings, smoothies, stuffing, anything you would put orange in. I love being creative with the oils in the kitchen. It is rather refreshing to drop a few drops in just a glass of water for healthy immune support.
Other great oils for cooking are cinnamon, thyme, oregano, cumin, cardamom, Ginger, Lemongrass, Basil, Lemon, Marjoram, Rosemary, Lavender, Fennel, On Guard, Rosemary, Cilantro, Coriander, Bergamot, Cassia, Clove, Grapefruit and black pepper.

Diffuse, Diffuse, Diffuse
Wild Orange is also recommended to diffuse well with Clary Sage, peppermint, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Geranium and Lavender. I must say I have not tried the Clary Sage yet, but I am going to. Putting a few drops of Wild Orange in your diffuser to purify the air and feeling of energy.
