At Home with Essential Oils


A few months ago I was at the end of my rope with Henry’s sleeping… or lack there of. I sought sleep consultants, read all the articles and did at the things to get him to sleep through the night.  Once he started to, another milestone or regression would occur and he would go right back to his old ways, waking up throughout the night. I was willing to do anything to help not only Henry but me as well! That’s when I discovered Essential Oils.

Honestly, I was totally skeptical at first. Am I falling for another marketing scheme? Will this really work? But it has proved me wrong and now I understand why I was being influenced. The essential oil users are passionate about the products because they are beneficial to both the mind and body.  Not only do the oils make my home smell so good, they enhance your physical wellness, purify your home, refine your beauty routine, and inspire a positive emotional state. Check check check!

With essential oils being in our home for a few months, I wanted to share how it’s helped us. I purchased the starter kit which includes 11 basic oils and diffuser. In the beginning I was getting headaches from the aroma. My body wasn’t used to the strong scents but now it craves it.  We fill the diffuser throughout the day with various mixes. When it’s not running, I notice a difference in my wellness. It’s truly amazing! There are so many more ways to use essential oils that I need to explore like rollers, digesting and cleaning.  I’m looking forward to sharing my journey! Here are a few of our favorite diffuser blends:

Immunity Boost : 2 Drops Lemon + 3 Drops Thieves

After a sleepless night as a mom, I need all the boosts I can get.  When it’s diffusing it makes me feel so much better and makes me feel like I am on top of the world.

Sleep Tight : 2 Drops Lavender + 2 Drops Copaiba

At the end of the night, I will make this combination to allow for relaxing and unwinding. Lavender is known for calming and fighting nervous tension and it’s such a classic smell.  Brings back memories.

Fight The Cold : 2 Drops Raven + 2 Drops Thieves

The cold has already hit our home this season and this blend helped to nip it in the bud!
