Guys are fortunate. They carry a billfold, possibly a hat and keep their lives simple. We women carry an armed tank on our shoulders filled with tidbits from every room in the house. And we wonder why our shoulders and necks ache. The weight of these gorgeous bags continue to add up though we are loathe to shift to a smaller purse on the chance we might need something, sometime, somewhere.
Having taken notice of what it is I do transport from bag to bag I realize just what is truly important to me. First thing of course even before the billfold is my cell phone. Thank god too they now have cameras as I used to carry a camera regularly. Year-round sunglasses of course to protect the eyes and a fingernail file. Comes in handy too as cross-over screw-driver in a pinch if you use a metal one.
I do admit I always, and I do mean always, carry bottles of essential oils of lavender and peppermint. Lavender for calming, but more importantly for muscle aches from carrying that heavy purse. Peppermint is my number go-to oil for about everything from upset stomach, to breathing difficulties to sore and achy muscles. It’s your all around ubiquitous oil. Truly awesome. I sometimes have in a homeopathic vile of apis mellifica on the off chance someone has an allergic reaction and/or arnica for accidents. And then of course there is the Larabar for protein. Too many blood sugar issues these days.
Being in the healing field these essential items truly do come in handy. If you have a little extra room in your handbag, I invite you to consider adding these small vital things for those ‘in case’ moments. You’ll be glad you did.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
