Hi friends! I’m Tatiana and I live on the Eastern Shore of MD with my husband and our three kiddos. I’ve been using essential oils for over five years. When I began my journey I was frustrated with our family always being sick, with my lack of energy and general lack of well being and I knew I wanted a change for our family. Now everyone in our family uses oils on a daily basis and everyone has their favorite go-to blend. I’m excited to share a few with you today!
Supporting Allergies With Essential Oils
This time of year can be hard on those of us with allergies. My husband has them especially bad but we all suffer from congestion, sneezing, runny noses and itchy eyes. I’ve found that using this roller blend first thing in the morning really helps to open up our sinuses and have everyone breathing easy.
Schooling At Home with Essential Oils
Like many of you we have been homeschooling the last few weeks and just got word that we will be finishing the school year at home. I have a 7 year old and a 5 year old and keeping them focused and happy during the school day is not always easy. However, there are 3 oils that help us and keep a good flow of learning and studying going. I love the combination of Frankincense, Balance (Doterra blend) and Ylang Ylang for focus. We use it in a 10 ml roller bottle and rub on pulse points. It’s also wonderful in the diffuser.
Sleep Support with Essential Oils
Between two young kids and a baby, sleep is really important and often hard to come by at our house. So we not only have a sleep roller blend but also a sleep spray on hand. Used in combination they seem to have a really calming effect both on my big kids and our 4 month old. The sleep spray we use by spraying the pillows or the crib mattress. And the sleep roller I like to use on the bottoms of their feet.
Skin Support with Essential Oils
When it comes to beauty care I have really pared things down. I use a very simple balm around my eyes at night, and after washing my face (morning and night) I love massaging a bit of this serum onto my face and neck.
