It's coming.... Even though the high today is 95 degrees in September, cold and flu season is on it's way!  I've been an essential oil user for about 7 years now but I must admit, sometimes I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to fighting illness.  Luckily, Spark Naturals-my oil company of choice, offers several products that are all you could possibly need to get you through the winter and prepare your family for what bug may come!  Let's break down each product today and with the help of … [Read more...]

A Ringworm Remedy Among Other Things….

My girls and I got ringworm.  How's that for transparent?  Back in October we bought two kittens and they ended up giving us ringworm, or so I think.  Now, let's get one thing straight-ringworm is not actually caused by a worm.  It's a fungal rash very much like Athlete's foot and jock itch.  Awesome.  It's a round rash that is crazy hard to get rid of and very contagious.  First Heidi got a patch on her back.  Then I got a patch on my arm and next Sofie got one on her arm as well.  I knew it … [Read more...]

The Power of Diffusing Essential Oils

I love diffusing.  I diffuse daily for several reasons and I believe it's a healthy habit that can enhance your overall being.  There are many benefits to diffusing that I'd like to shine a light on in case you're on the fence as to whether you should use essential oils in your home. When you diffuse, you add filtered water and 8-10 drops of essential oils.  I typically run mine for about 2 hours at a time.  The diffuser creates a mist that becomes suspended into the air for 2-3 hours after … [Read more...]

What’s In My “Just-In-Case” Vacation Bag…

We recently went on vacation and as I was packing my "just in case" bag, I thought it would be fun to share what exactly I pack just in case one of us comes down with something while on vacation.  It's just not an option for us to run to a local pharmacy and load up on allergy, cold or stomach bug drugs-not when there's a safe, natural remedy. I'm a very light packer.  I'm the person who packs way too light then ends up going shopping mid-way through the trip for sensible shoes and extra … [Read more...]

A Natural Protocol for Bites with Melaleuca

Spring is officially here for most of us and with that comes all kinds of creepy crawlers.  If you all keep up with my Facebook and Instagram page you might know not many days go by without me experiencing nature in a very intimate way.  For example, a couple of weeks ago I got bit by a mouse, a big one.  Yesterday I carried 2 baby snakes out of the house.  This spring we also have a resident tarantula living in a flower bed very close to the front door.  I realize I'm giving you the impression … [Read more...]
