So, it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. We’ve been super busy, and I just haven’t been baking and cooking as much as I used to. Now I’m going to get back into the swing of things. I find that it’s really key to have a meal plan if you want to be successful in making food and not being lazy. lol. So, what we’ve been up to:
So, a little bit about essential oils. If we’re friends on Facebook, I’ve been talking about them kind of a lot. And the reason is because they’ve changed our lives. Awhile ago a friend (my BFF!) of mine gave me a bottle of Purification and Thieves and about 6 months later I found myself buying the kit that came with a diffuser and the oils you see in the picture above. The rest is history.
I’ve found that Aaron and I haven’t been sick since using Thieves and Purification. And the best part? Emma had an ear infection a few days ago, I put a drop of Purification on a cotton ball and put that in her ear and she was better that night. Seriously! A miracle!
We’ve been using what is called the “Medicine Cabinet Makeover” for awhile now. You basically can say there’s an oil for everything. When I get a headache I use Panway or Peppermint and my headache is gone. And I have to say, I feel a lot better being able to give myself and my family things that are all-natural and healthy for you. Wow, never thought I would say that. I can see we’re going down an all-natural, healthy path for our family and I never really thought this is where I would end up. But here I am. And it’s good. God is really good!
Now, I’m sure some of you are even curious about what do you do with the oils? Some of them have to be diluted (like Panaway), so what I do is put a drop of Panaway in my hand and a drop or two (or four depending on how sensitive you are) of olive oil in my hand and then rub that on my neck if I have a headache or on my temples. Pretty easy. When the kids are sick I put a couple of drops of Thieves in my hand along with olive oil and then put that on their feet. Aaron even goes as far as brushing his teeth with Thieves. Crazy, right?! Haha. Seriously.
One of the things I’m most excited about (and I posted this on FB this morning) is the three Essential Oils for allergies. I’ve had seasonal allergies for years and nothing ever helped 100%. So, you can bet I am excited to see how these work!
So just a brief explanation of what’s been going on. If anyone has any questions, feel free to email me or leave me a comment!
