catching up + essential oils

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re all doing well! The last couple of weeks have been a little crazy around here. I came home from Canada and hit the ground running, literally! We had family in town the weekend I came home and a full schedule ever since. We’ve also been a little under the weather! Mainly allergies and just some sinus issues but you know how those things can affect you! When it first started I was convinced I had strep throat. My throat hurt so bad and I felt icky all over! I immediately started using essential oils to see if they would help before going to the doctor.. Let me tell you, I started feeling better right away! My sore throat was immediately soothed and after a few days I knew I was on the mend! I haven’t taken any other medications or gone to the doctor.

Essential oils are amazing and they’re now second nature to me! I started using them a few years ago and I’m so glad I did! My hubby thought I was crazy at first…and did not let me live it down! Then one day he needed an oil, tried it, and it worked! He’s still picks at me for being a “hippie girl” but he uses oils and that’s all that matters!


It’s a little hard to train yourself to grab an oil instead of a pill. It’s hard to trust that they are going to do the job but if you learn how to use them, most of the time, they will do the job and more! I used to go to the doctor every time I was sick or go to the drug store and stock up on every allergy, sinus, and cold medicine I could find. Now I grab my oil box and start reading my book on how I can help my family and I stay healthy, a natural way! If we are truly sick and need a doctor, we go! We aren’t that crazy! Haha. However I do feel I should try to treat whatever is going on naturally before we use other medicines.

It can be very overwhelming if you’re new to the world of essential oils so I thought I would share a few of my favorite oils for the issues above and let you try it out for yourselves! I will share more tips over time and if you ever have any questions or just want to talk oils, message me!

The below information is not guaranteed to work for you or your family. It is simply me sharing the way I use oils. This is not backed by any company or guarantee.

What I use for a Sore Throat:

  • Lemon
  • Lavender
  • Peppermint

How I use them: I simply dilute these oils with a carrier oil and rub them on my neck to sooth my sore throat. I also mix 1 drop of each oil in hot water…I breath in the steam and drink for a soothing coat over my throat. This blend also helps my husband and I fight allergies. I adjust how many drops I use in my water at times. I also diffuse these oils and many others in our home!

There are so many oils I could share with you but we’ll save them for another day! I am getting back in the swing of things and trying to get lots done! We’re working very hard on our upcoming announcement and we can’t wait to share it with you all! Hope you all have a great weekend!
