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?

After talking about the basics of essential oils, I wanted to go into a little more depth into some of the most commonly used oils – what they’re for, how to use them, and a challenge for you to try! Keep your eye out here for the Back to Basics posts over the next few weeks!
Also, be sure to read the Essential Oils 101 post to learn the basics about essential oils.
I hope these challenges will help you get creative in using your oils! Plus, I love seeing new ideas for using oils, so I’d love to hear from you and how you use your oils. Be sure to follow along here and on Instagram!
Happy New Year friends!!
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. Continue reading “Essential Oils 101”
A couple weeks ago now, I had my colonoscopy and upper endoscopy procedure, and I have received the results from the biopsies and all that was done that day. With mixed emotions, I report that everything has one back as normal from that procedure. Much like the last time I had tests done, I didn’t really want to have any of the illnesses I was being tested for. But I was really hoping for some sort of answers or diagnosis so I could have a starting point to start getting better. At the moment, I’m happy that I don’t have a chronic issue to treat, but I’m back at square one again, and I’m just tired. Continue reading “GI Update”
I’ve been stalling writing this post, mostly because I’m pretty nervous. I mentioned before that I finally got an appointment with a GI doctor (thanks for the recommendations, I ended up choosing one you guys suggested to me that was within my insurance network!) and had my appointment a few weeks ago, just after getting back from Scotland. Continue reading “Well, poop (Part 2)”
For those who don’t follow me on Instagram (you totally should, btw @journeytoloving.me), last week, I got back from a 2 week adventure through Scotland! As a military brat, I lived there when I was really young (we left when I was 3 years old), and this year there was a reunion for people who were stationed there, so my mom said “let’s do it!” We stayed in a cute little fishing town on the east coast of Scotland, not far from where we had lived before, and took day trips to see the sights we had done 20+ years ago. And the best part? We ate. A LOT. Continue reading “Traveling Europe!”
