Personal growth plays an important part in keeping emotions, self-esteem, and confidence in balance.
For me, personal growth means so much; being authentic and real is a big part of that. If I am not authentic, how can I personally grow? I suppose I can but not in the way that will empower me or help me grow my confidence in myself and my gifts. I feel personal growth is also listening to our bodies, and what they are whispering. That all knowing and intuitive part of us, like a muscle, needing to be used to become stronger each day. Self-acceptance must play a part too. Without this, what are we growing? Perhaps an inauthentic version of ourselves?
When thinking about personal growth, there are so many avenues and interpretations of what this means. I feel that each one of us may feel a different connection with the term. Really though, it is about our own personal growth, so it is about our perception of this. I am going to look at this with my own interpretation and what oils I feel can help and have helped me.

Books to Support Essential oil usage and Personal Growth
My favourites to really delve into using oils to support emotions when working on our personal growth are the trio from Desiree Mangandog. Their titles give away the content and the type of blends and actions you may see. ‘I am Fabulous’, ‘I am Worthy’ and ‘I am Magnetic.’ All have a place along this personal growth journey. The other trusted title is ‘Essential Emotions’ – Its like my go to bible for supporting my emotions as I work through the next layer of self-discovery.
I hope you have found this a useful blog to help you experiment and use essential oils as part of your personal growth.
Remember, three ways to use:*
Topically – Diluted with a carrier oil on your skin
Aromatically – inhaling from the bottle or using a small number of drops in a diffuser.
Internally – Only some essential oils and only pure tested grade oils. My choice is doTERRA, and only them. I know where they have been sourced, bottled and that they are pure and unadulterated.
