Snoring and Essential Oils

I’ve recently started using essential oils more regularly now and thought I’d share some of the ways they’ve worked in our home. I’m going to start with snoring. As this was the first thing that finally sold me on EOs. I had seen them around, and didn’t doubt that oils helped in healing the body, but I was sort of a skeptic. I agreed to attend a class taught by a friend as everything just seemed overwhelming. What do I use for this? How do I apply it? How often do I apply? It was all confusing. It still is a bit confusing but I’m slowly catching on.

It interrupts my sleep (in addition to my babies) and then I’m usually up all night. There were a couple success stories of using Thyme essential oil  to help stop snoring. I couldn’t believe that applying an oil would help stop snoring. However, I decided to buy some anyway to see what happens. If it didn’t work, I’d find other uses for it. That night I signed up with DoTerra to be able to get my oils on discount. I had been wanting to try them and the Family Physician® Kit seemed to be a good set of oils that I would need for daily use or for those normal issues that come up. So far, I have found that to be true! (more…)

More harvests!

The small picture to the left was our harvest from a few days ago. Today, we got even more tomatoes, a carrot that was pulled to see where we were at (and then was promptly taste tested…mmm), and some peppers....

And we have eggplant!

I have been watching the big purple one emerge the past few days, but I didn’t notice the striped ones that had shown up! Aren’t they gorgeous? Both are different kinds. I’ve never had eggplant but I thought we’d try...

Our Homebirth

I’m going to post our birth story of our 5th baby, Elijah Judah. Not just because I want to be able to come back and remember all the details years from now, but to help make home birthing more “normal”....
