Who is surprised – it’s getting warmer out, and yet again, I’m injured. It’s the same area causing a problem, which to me says I have a chronic issue with tendonitis in my ankle. The hardest part of this all – I knew something was wrong, but ignored it for almost two weeks before resting. Long story short friends, if you notice swelling, get it looked at before it gets any worse. Continue reading “Setbacks”
Next up – lavender. Lavender, like lemon, is a very commonly used oil, and one of the first oils I used when I started. It’s another very versatile oil that everyone should have when they get started.

I started this blog a little over two years ago, with a goal in mind: work through my skin and digestive issues, and share the journey, hoping to reach those those who are looking for solutions and answers. Well, after two and a half years, I don’t know if I have figured out the whole problem yet, but I have found some of the triggers that make things worse. Something is better than nothing, right?

First, thank you all for coming along in this journey with me. So many of you have helped me as I travel down this path, and I appreciate it all so much!
Another year down which means a new set of goals! A couple of years ago, I realized that I prefer setting New Year’s goals instead of resolutions, as resolutions tend to be open-ended and usually end up failing within the first month. Continue reading “New Year’s Goals”
I talk about them quite a bit here, but I realized I never took the time to actually talk about what essential oils are or how to use them. There’s a saying in the essential oil world, “I didn’t know how to use essential oils, but then I opened the bottle!” While it is that easy to get started, there’s a little more to than that.

One of the first foods I changed when I started on this journey was replacing my milk with almond milk. Slowly but surely, I switched to the unsweetened almond milk, and now, I’m fully granola and make my own nut milk each week. A friend of mine asked me about it and said she had no idea how to do it! It’s super easy and trust me, it tastes probably 163x (give or take a couple times) better than what you get in the grocery store, plus! you know all the ingredients in it!
