Now Diffusing

Tonight I'm diffusing doTerra's Balance and Serenity together. I need to de-stress this weekend. It was my first week back full time at work and Friday was extremely stressful.

Yes, I use this brand of diffuser. Easy, light, and effective. 

Balance and Serenity is exactly what the stressed out person needs.  Why?

Balance is a Grounding blend.


Blue Tansy
Fractionated coconut oil

Spruce is a woodsy smell that will keep you grounded and relaxed. Rosewood calms nerves and increases mental focus. Frankincense relives anxiety and has antidepressant properties (I will definitely be getting Frankincense by itself right off. lol). Blue Tansy helps with agitation, anxiety, frustration, depression, and irritability. Wow! 

This is mixed with fractionated coconut oil to help balance and mix the oils. You can use Balance for diffusing and / or using on the skin. I have done both. I try to rub Balance on my feet every morning and when I get home if I need something, I will diffuse it.

Honestly, this alone has not helped me. I guess I'm a basket case. That is why I finally bought Serenity. It sounded more like what I needed. Together, I think it has helped a lot. Because, I do need grounding.

So, on to Serenity.

Serenity is a Calming Blend. You know, keep calm and carry on..... Yeah right! As soon as I got this in the mail, I opened it up and smelled it. I knew it was for me. In fact, I just now opened it up to smell it again as I'm writing this. lol


Sweet Marjoram
Roman Chamomile
Ylang Ylang
Vanilla Bean

Lavender, of course everyone knows the calming properties of this, right? It helps with anger, anxiety, depression, irritability, and frustration. Sweet Marjoram helps with agitation, anxiety, emotional exhaustion, frustration, mood swings, and stress. (I now realize I need to bring this to work).  Roman Chamomile  you just need to go get a bottle of this alone. It helps with everything stress and depression related. Agitation, anger, anxiety, depression, fear, stress, and mood swings. Ylang Ylang helps with mood swings, anger, depression and forgiveness. Sandlewood helps with agitation and mania. lol. Maybe I'm manic. I do go from one extreme to the other. Vanilla Bean. Awh, vanilla, who doesn't love the smell of that. 

I have just diffused the Serenity so far. I haven't had the time to put it in a roller bottle yet. (I better do this before Monday morning). I just love the smell. Putting it with the balance smells wonderful. 

Essential oils are natural ways to treat ourselves. We don't always need a pill prescribed to us. Also, you will find that one essential oil is good for so many different things. They have a lot of uses. For example, lavender can be used for burns and eczema. Frankincense is good in beauty products. Also, you can put them in homemade cleaning products. That's how I started. Not the above mentioned though. 

Balance and Serenity are offered through doTerra. You can visit them HERE.

I have no idea how much of each EO to use to make my own blend and some of them are very expensive and hard to get. That is why I just purchased the blends through doTerra. 

Happy Diffusing!

Early this morning we had an eclipse of the moon. It was a full moon and the eclipse turned the moon red. I have been noticing the effects of the moon on my body and mood since September when I had a return of my panic attacks.I finally feel that I've conquered that with the help of meds and meditations. Lot's of meditation, relaxing music, plenty of spiritual reading, and soul searching. 

Everything isenergy. Even us. So when I get anxious and nervous now, I try to remember that it's just energy. That what I'm feeling is the energy in me and all around me. I'm fine and everything is okay and as it should be. I take deep breaths and make sure I work on clearing my chakras everyday and do my meditations at night. I want to get off the meds, but my intuition is telling me to wait until I am whole. I don't feel whole quite yet. But, everyday things are getting better. I'm feeling a calmness and serenity in me. I'm feeling happier and more joyful everyday.

Conflicting Feelings

My fingers are itching to type and my mind is in overdrive again. It's scary to pour your heart out. But, I did get a good response on my last post. The response was on Facebook. I really really wish people would comment on the blog post itself also :)

Well, maybe I should explain why I am so upset with religion??

Religion specifically Christianity;

We are taught:

To be separate from the world; to not mix and mingle with the world; if you do you will be influenced by them for the badTo just listen to God's laws and if you don't you are a problemThat we are not to believe in rituals and spiritualism  To listen to God and not ourselves; we just can't be trustedTo look down on people who are not us or who think and act differently (yes, I hear your protests that this is not so)That we are sinners who can never measure up 
Why is this bothering me so?
It has caused me nothing but anxiety attacks and low self-esteemIt has inhibited me from further progressing; my mind has never …

The Best Darn Stain Remover

I got this recipe from Pinterest. This is great for any stain you might have. It's the only thing I use. And it's easy. Easy is my middle name. In more ways than one lol.
In a Spray Bottle mix:

1 part of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent (the old blue kind)
2 parts of Hydrogen Peroxide

Shake. Spray. Throw in the wash.

That's it. It's stinky. But don't let that stop you. It works and it's easy. When you put it through the wash you can't smell it anymore. I promise.
