Let’s be honest. The more structure in my life, the better. I need structure in my life, and I thrive off of structure. So, one of my sisters gave me the idea of having the weekly giveaway on the same day every week and then giving my readers a week to participate. I thought it sounded good, and it had structure, yay! I know, I’m a bit nerdy, but how do you think I got through grad school with two toddlers and one more baby on the way? Structure, people… and schedules… and Jesus. A whole lot of Jesus.
So, today I am going to give away a roller blend that I make and use on my family when those Texas sized seasonal threats begin. It’s also great to have on hand to help soothe skin irritation (like mosquito bites. Can I get an “amen!” from my fellow Texans?!?). This roller bottle is a blend of lemon, lavender, and peppermint. Lemon essential oil helps support a healthy respiratory system and helps to open the airways as well as acts as a natural detox for your body. Lavender essential oil is a natural soothing oil and helps soothes skin irritations. Peppermint supports healthy respiratory system and promotes clear breathing.
This blend has helped my family tremendously. A couple of years ago before I started using the oils, I had taken Noah and Timmy to the doctor for what I thought was a terrible cold. Turns out it they were just having a flare up to seasonal threats around them. This is a reoccuring theme for them: weather change? Flare up. Spring time blossoms? Flare up. Tons of rain? Flare up.
We had mixed luck with other methods to try and find relief . So, I went out and bought some roller bottles and mixed up equal parts of lavender, lemon, and peppermint oil and then diluted it with coconut oil so I could even use it on my baby. I like to roll it on the bottom of their feet and the back of their neck. It provided so much relief, and as long as I am consistent with putting the oils on them (sometimes I forget!) it helps so much at supporting their bodies when those seasonal threats are in the air.
