We’ve all had the moments when we look at our home and see messes in every direction, when kids are simultaneously melting down and somehow dinner still isn’t made (because the meat is still in the freezer ;)).
Moments like these make me thankful for worship music and essential oils! And when paired together, magic happens in my home.
We’ve all heard some explanation of what music does for our mind and soul – it can transport us back in time, reduce anxiety, strengthen our memory and even empower us to process emotions. But have you heard about the power essential oils have on our brains?
Essential oils, when used for therapeutic means, stimulate the olfactory system (our sense of smell) which is connected to the limbic part of our brain which controls our breathing, blood pressure, memory, how we respond to stress and many more important functions of our body.
Essential oils can penetrate cell membranes and cross the brain-blood barrier within seconds. This allows them to reach the emotional center of our brain, where all of our emotions are stored. Essential oils support the body to come back into balance without harmful side effects or chemical-based products. They can have a powerful influence over how we think, how we feel and how we behave. Because oils bring balance to our emotions, we can do that simply through smelling them.
If essential oils have the power to do all of that, we should be bathing in them! And allowing our sweet kids to benefit from them as well.
When I’m having an overstimulated afternoon with my kids at home, I turn on our favorite kids worship playlist, drop some oils in the diffuser, and watch how the two transform our home.
Since music can empower us, I choose Christian kids music because I want my home to be inspired to worship, and when our minds are filled with worship of God, it naturally inspires us to serve others.

So mama, turn up the worship music and get those oils pumpin!
