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!

If you have any questions, you can email me through the Contact Us link on my doterra website.

Thank You!

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

All the Colors of the Wildflowers – Part Two

IMG_1270

Yesterday, it was the perfect day to go on this day trip to Fredericksburg!

See part one of All the Colors of the Wildflowers to see pictures of all the beautiful flowers at Wildseed Farms. -> Click Here!

There is so much to do at Wildseed Farms. My family and I spent nearly two hours or more there walking around.

Not only can you walk the fenced areas outside the farm land and fields to see all the beautiful flowers, Wildseed Farms has an enormous selection of plants available to buy. My favorite was looking at all the different succulents.

In their gift shop, you can buy different poppy seeds. I believe they had two or three types of poppy seeds for planting. There was a whole section of the gift stop dedicated to different types of flower seeds. That was fun to walk through!

Also, they have a food specialty shop. Too similar to the General Store in Gruene, Texas (to me). I did not spend a lot of time in there. You can sample some of their jams and snacks they sell. Their snack bar is also in that shop. I believe they had different ice cream, ice cream specialty items, and fudge to buy along with drinks.

If you wanted to make a whole day of it, such as a Saturday… I believe that on occasion they have live music.

Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! – Bethany
