Parenting!

I have decided to leave the actual title of this post at parenting! This is because I keep typing things I know I will regret once I have calmed down and my little "cherubs" are being little cherubs again. Hopefully this will be soon, because right now all I can think is - 'How long until they are 18? FFS!'. **Edited to add that FFS is 'internet speak' for (say out loud): Things were going pretty well for me this morning. Dave g...

Ice Blue

This last week has been a challenge for me. I have been struggling big time with my anxiety. A lot of it is situational, a  lot of really stressful things happened in a row- which is always the way right? It's never a shit day it's always a shit-storm. Anyway I have been grateful for my essential oils. I made a blend of lavender, frankincense and fractionated coconut oil and have been applying it whenever I needed. When I got super anxious I didn't dilute it, just layered the lavender and frankincense on the soles of my feet. It has definitely helped but it wasn't enough to keep my tension headache at bay. My headache started on Friday afternoon. It really set...

Break Glass in Case of Emergency - Morning Energiser Blend

Yep it's an emergency alright! The rest of us are over our bugs but little Chloe still has a lingering cough. During the day I feel sorry for my little love, but sometimes in the dark hours of the morning all I can think is "Ahrrggghhhhhhhh". It's cold in her room and I don't trust the portable heaters, so she is in our room where it's warm and we have a vaporiser going. Obviously this is the best thing for all of us, but it doesn't make getting a good night's sleep easy. Little Miss was awake at 5 am again this morning and in an effort to try and save one of our sleep, I got up...

It's Here! My Essentials Collection Has Arrived

It's here, it's here, it's here!! I am so excited. It's like being a little kid on Christmas morning. I don't know where to start. I want to make a nappy rash blend for Miss Cookie, we can all be using the easy air right now with our colds and the OnGuard protective blend. I also want to make a sleepy blend so that I can finally get a good night sleep. So many options!! Anyway no time for blogging, I have oils to play with 😋

Serenity Now.... Seriously!

Today was a challenge. Well actually, that's putting it mildly, today was a freakin' shit show. My day started with a sick feeling in my stomach, you know the one you get when you realise your darling 10 month old daughter has been blowing snot bubbles in your porridge? Yep, that happen...

A little bit of focus

I am starting to scare myself. I am not one to be talking about intuition or things being meant to be  very often- yet here I am. Oh boy, soon I am going to be talking about energy vibrations and the like. However, as much as it irritates me, I feel like we had a little bit of that happen in our hous...

BlogLovin!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I guess a blog without readers is kind of like writing your diary on the internet. Anyway, it's easy to follow with Bloglovin and if you've got kids and want some natural options to soothe their health issues then follow along- I'll be sharing my progress as we go.

And the journey begins

Do you ever feel like sometimes things in life keep coming back to you? Especially when you ignore them? I think this is what has happened to me when it comes to essential oils. Around 13 years ago I was studying a Diploma of Beauty Therapy and part of the course focused on aromatherapy and how essential oils can add to massage, body and skin treatments in beauty therapy. This was a very introductory module, however we got to learn about the common effects of ...
