During the transformative stages of ones's 50s and 60s, marked by shifts in hormones and emotions, the importance of self care cannot be overstated.


Achieving emotional well being becomes a priority. It did for me. Sufficient restful sleep, nourishing food and drink, and minimizing or eliminating alcohol intake all contribute significantly to both your health and skin.


But what role do essential oils play in this journey?

This piqued my curiosity.

Here is some of what I've learned.


Some research as shown, certain essential oils, such as lavender, chamomile, bergamot, and frankincense, offer potential solutions for managing stress, anxiety and mood swings. Their therapeutic properties may prove invaluable during this stage of life.


SKINCARE AMD ANTI AGING

We wonder how to look and feel our best, have healthy glow as we age by using natural means.


Oils like rose hip, frankincense, geranium and carrot seed are known for promoting skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines, and improving overall skin texture. This is due to the antioxidant and anti inflammatory and anti-aging properties that can benefit our mature skin.



JOINT AND MUSCLE SUPPORT

Discomfort can become more common as women age. Joint and muscle discomfort can be helped with use of oils like peppermint, ginger, and eucalyptus. These may help provide relief when used in massage blends or added to baths.



SLEEP AID


Disturbed sleep can become more frequent with age. Essential oils like lavender and chamomile are known for their calming effects and may help improve sleep quality when sed in a diffuser or added to a pre bedtime routine.


MENTAL CLARITY AND FOCUS

Women managing busy work schedules, family life and other challenges can enhance mental clarity, concentration, and memory with essential oils like rosemary peppermint, and lemon.



HOLISTIC WELLNESS

Essential oils complement holistic wellness practices like yoga, meditation, tai chi, and mindfulness.

I find it truly beautiful how nature provides us with what we need for well being as we age, and one of these ways is through the use of essential oils.


Note: essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts and should be used with caution especially for individuals with sensitive skin, allergies or certain medical contains.


Tips for using essential oils safely:


Patch Test: Before using a new essential oil perform a patch test on a small are of skin to check for any adverse reactions.

Consultation: If you have any underlying health conditions or are taking medications, it is a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before using essential oils.

Moderation: Use essential oils in moderation to avoid overexposure. More is not necessarily better.

Avoid Ingestion: It's best to avoid ingestion essential oils, as they are highly concentrated and can be toxic if consumed inappropriately.

By following guidelines and considering individual needs and sensitivities, women over the age of 50 can incorporate essential oils into their wellness routines to potentially support their physical and emotional well being.

"EMBRACING THE UNCHARTED


It is beautiful how as we journey through life, each phase presents us with unique opportunities for growth and self discovery. Yet, when it come to aging, many women over 60 may not have considered it as a time of curiosity and self exploration. You may not have reached this milestone in life, but perhaps your mother, sister, other loved one has and so you can share these little wisdom gems.


There are new perspectives, wisdom, experiences that come with the passage of time, and they are waiting to be uncovered.

Let's delve into the inspiring concept of aging with curiosity and self discovery and how embracing this mindset can lead to a fulfilling transformative journey.


Aging is often accompanied by societal expectations and stereotypes, which might overshadow the wonder of this new chapter in life.

Curiosity encourages us to ask questions, try new things and remain open to learning.

Embrace the unknown with a sense of adventure, much like embarking on a new journey or voyage into self exploration.


This can also be a time reflect on your past accomplishments, setbacks and moments of personal growth. Consider the journey you have undertaken, the strength and resilience that have guided you through life's twists and turns.

This is a time for redefining priorities. Consider what truly matters to you now and how you want to shape the years ahead.


Embrace the freedom that comes with age to pursue passions you might have set aside earlier. Self discovery around aging with curiosity also involves connecting with others who share similar experiences. Reach out to friends, join social groups, or engage in community activities that resonate with your interests.


Revisit your health and your wellbeing. Aging is not a static process, it is a dynamic journey filled with potential for growth and self realization. For women over 60, embracing this phase with curiosity and self discovery can lead to a profound transformation.



For me personally, aging is offering a unique opportunity to delve deeper into the mysteries of life and spirituality. Curiosity allowed me to explore the metaphysical questions that have intrigued me.

To explore the connections of mind, body, spirit, and the dance with the universe. To live with gratitude and purpose fully aware and awake to the blessings around me.


Consider the spiritual dimensions that infuse this phase with profound significance. Embrace this sacred journey with an open heart and a mindful spirit.

Approach each day as an opportunity to learn and explore the beauty of the years that have shaped you into the remarkable person you are today.




"As a woman gathers more years she becomes more bold, which is not the same as brave: brave is jumping in.

Bold is jumping in led by angels.

In age, we learn to know the difference for certain. Older is Bolder."

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
