This past holiday season I decided to take the plunge into the ever popular essential oils. I have seen this little revolution happen all around me for the past 5 years and little by little it peaked my interest. I never bought into it though until I started seeing for myself the incredible benefits that can be had from using these all natural resources. Some of these stories include avoiding sickness altogether, most commonly the cold and flu virus, headaches, anxiety, allergies, receiving natural boosts energy, getting a good nights sleep and the list goes on!! You mean I don’t have to medicate myself with over the counter drugs constantly when one of my family members or myself is experiencing these common ailments?? All natural did you say??? Ok I want to know more….and although I felt late in the game when I finally invested in this fabulous phenomenon, I felt the need to share all the knowledge that was at my fingertips. This was all too good since we live in a world where we are constantly striving to use only the best to promote health and wellness for our loved ones. It’s what it’s all about right??

So like I said this past holiday season, I told the hubby I wanted some oils to jumpstart my collection. He was all for it, so I went the guru herself. She is a dear friend of ours here at Beijos and we recently visited her lovely home so she could educate us a little. It’s the wonderful Melody Brandon, who also co- owns the ever popular and yummy Sweet & Saucy Shop!! How does she have time for this being a bakery owner, a mama and investing her time into her newest passion with these essential oils?? Who knows…she’s what we call a super mom!! You need to follow her instagram feed over on Life on Loma to see this super mama in action. Anyway, here is what she has to say…
