You all might not know, but I’m a big believer in essential oils. Those that do know, probably call me the crazy oil lady behind my back, which I’m cool with. My love for oils started a couple of years ago, and my essential oil game became pretty serious about a year ago. My son, Jett gets chronic croup since he was born. In the beginning, not having a lot of knowledge about croup, we gave him what the doctor advised us each time. Well, you could only imagine how many steroids that little man received. Finally, about a year ago, I had enough and did some research on my own. Turns out steroids, are horrible for you, shocker. Now, of course, they helped him, there is no debate in that. But I didn’t want to give him them forever. This is where essential oils came in. Since that day, I can happily say we have had not to give him one steroid treatment since. On that very day, I changed our families lifestyle and started to use all natural, non-toxic, organic, granola, call it what you want, products in every part of our life.
Tune in tomorrow for a pretty rad giveaway with all my favorite essential oil goodies!
With school approaching, I had to get my weaponry of essential oils ready for action. I love to do roller and diffuser blends for both my kids and myself. For back to school, I wanted to create some blends that will help all of us get thru the school year, and especially those 1st-day jitters. We are at a new school this year, and I think we all are pretty nervous about that.
With the help from Melody, my essential oil guru, she came up with some excellent blends for back to school. Melody has helped me with knowledge of oils for a couple of months now, and she is the best! You might remember we did a feature on this super mom this past year. Read it here to learn how she started with oils, and some her favorite blends. Any question, any concern, small or large, she has the answer for it. If she dosesn’t, she will research it and have the answer in a flash. She is pretty much the shit. Melody just started an Instagram account that is all about oils, check it out!
Balance is a blend by Doterra that has their top oils in it to help with grounding of the emotions and also anxiety. Citrus oils in general smell amazing and are great mood uplifters, energizing, and refreshing.
