A Cold in May

It is never fun to come down with a cold, especially in the warmer months of the year. Most all of my colds used to turn into sinus infections until I started using doterra oils.

How I have beat my colds with homeopathic treatments:

  1. On Guard – this is doterra’s proprietary blend for immune support
    • I take the beadlets.
    • I use my own homemade toothpaste that I made with the On Guard oil blend and lemon oil.- Recipe Here (This toothpaste is for oil pulling.)
    • I also use doterra’s On Guard toothpaste.
  2. Oregano oil capsule – I take twice a day.
  3. ZICAM
    • I take the melts every 3 hours.
    • Last dose of ZICAM before bed, I use a swab.

Diffuser Recipes

  1. Cold/Flu Bomb:
    • 1-2 drop of Melaleuca
    • 1-2 drop of Oregano
    • 1-2 drop of On Guard
    • 1 extra drop of Lemon because Oregano and Melaleuca are strong!!

For me, the symptoms that hang on are usually enough drainage to affect my ears, and I get that fun tickle in the back of my throat.

2. For my ears:
– 1-2 drops of Lavender
– 1-2 drops of Melaleuca
– 1-2 drops of Basil

For the tickle in my throat:

  • Peppermint beadlets
  • TriEase
  • Peppermint oil in a roller bottle – I can apply directly to my throat or put behind my ears.

I hope these tips help you to stay healthy all year round!

Happy Mother’s Day

My Mom’s tea cosy was a little worn out so I decided to try and make her a new one for Mother’s Day.

Turned out beautiful! #DIYteacosy


This is what I did to create the tea cosy:

Yarn: I used one skein of homespun cream yarn for the tea cosy. For the flower, I used one skein of a thick red glitter yarn. (I found the glitter yarn at Hobby Lobby.) I used black yarn – Red Heart yarn for the middle pom-pom.

  1. Pattern for tea cosy (used a I/5.5 size hook)
  2. Pattern for petals of Flower – I crocheted multiple strands of flower petals until there was no cream yarn showing through (used an N/9 size hook)
  3. Then I used a tiny pom-pom (in black yarn) for the middle of the flower.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! #HappyMothersDay
