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!

Face Wash

Why have I not ever heard of this before? I have acne prone skin. Had it every since I was 9. I've tried every freaking acne face wash there is and nothing has ever worked. So, here I am in my 40s and finally my skin looks good. For three weeks now. I love it! No acne. No dryness. Smooth and healthy complexion. I really do look younger. So what is this? I don't know if I dare say. I mean why would I want others to look good too. lol. Oh, it is:

castor oil and olive oil
What!! Why would you put more oil on your face to help with oily skin, you say. I thought it was gross too. But since I have tried everything anyway, I gave it a shot. And I was sold on the first "washing".

I found this on a blog that I follow: Simple Organized Living. I think I found the blog on Pinterest. You find so many neat things on that site that you might otherwise never have found. On Simple Organized Living, the oil cleansing method was linked and referenced too.

Thank You, Hubby!

As I was reading my posts in FB this morning, I ran across a link about dads and I was thankful that I have the husband that I have. The link was to a blog post, titled, Calling all Dads, from the blog, Dad Revolution. The post was about how the government census classifies dads and how society still thinks of dads as babysitters.

I am thankful that my husband has changed plenty of diapers for all four of our kids. He has made bottles, gave them baths, walked the floors with them. He cooks, does dishes, and picks the house up. He will do laundry also. He does have many faults, but, all in all, I choose to put up with them in order to experience all the goodness that I do get. Also, now that the kids are adults, they have a great relationship with their dad still.

Now we have 6 grandchildren and they all love him dearly. He gives them plenty of attention, kisses and hugs, and shares his coffee with them. Also, when I watch the kids for my daughters, I can count on him to help me take c…

Anger Management

I must confess that I have a problem in becoming angry and belligerent to people. Innocent people that have nothing to do with why I am angry. And there never is just one reason for the anger. It's an accumulation of irritations and obligations, etc. I have behaved badly at stores in front of customers and especially to the cashiers. I have yelled, cursed, and threatened many customer service reps on the phone whether it be the phone company, the electric company, for myself or for my mother. I take things out on anyone near me. Last Friday, I had a problem with my virus protection program on my computer through my cable service provider and did the chat thing with a customer service rep. Yes, I typed plenty of inappropriate things to let him know the depth of my annoyance.

Don't worry, karma did bite me in the ass today at work. A patient treated me in the same exact way that I treat other people when I'm pissed. No, it did not feel good and I did get angry at them. So, …
