my favorite essential oils: part 3.

Today is part 3 in my favorite essential oils series.  You can read the other posts here:
 
Today I'm talking about Breathe Again roll-on.
 
Here's what Young Living has to say about this blend:
Breathe Again contains four powerful eucalyptus oils: Eucalyptus staigeriana, Eucalyptus globulus, Eucalyptus radiata, and Young Living's original Ecuador single, Eucalyptus blue. Eucalyptus oils contain high amounts of cineole, which has been studied for its potential to support healthy lung function. The essential oils peppermint, myrtle, and copaiba also play an integral part in this blend. Breathe Again is available in a portable roll-on applicator, making natural relief available anywhere.
This oil has been a big part of our treatment with Milo and his asthma.  During the winter of 2012-2013, Milo was doing nebulizer treatments often.  Anytime he caught a cold, it always turned into a respiratory infection.  He just couldn't catch a break.  Since beginning oils in February of 2013, we haven't used any antibiotics, steroids, nebulizer meds...any pharmaceutical for his asthma.  We've been able to control it all with oils.  Milo never needed an inhaler, his asthma came in the form of coughing and heavy/hard breaths when he got sick.  But the constant use of the nebulizer meds, just kept pushing his immune system down, and he kept getting sick.
So, we take this little roll-on around with us everywhere I go.  He is mature enough to grab it and use it as needed.  He will apply the oil to his throat and chest and rub in. 
 
For the uses I listed up above, it can be used in the same way.  Just roll-on and apply as often as needed.

jump for joy.

Can we talk about jumping pics?  They are just so fun.
I took a little road trip recently with some girlfriends and we stopped at all the state signs to make some memories.



After doing this, I thought to myself "self, wouldn't it be so fun to stop at every state sign you ever pass through to get a picture"---so that I could possibly have most of the states one day (assuming I drive through most of the states, not likely though).  Anyways, just a few short days later we drove back home to Texas, and I saw the Oklahoma sign coming up, then looked in my rear view mirror at all my children and realized I would not be stopping.  Eh, too much trouble to pull the car over. So basically, I will stop at any and all state signs when I am sans children, or when they are old enough to unbuckle themselves one day.  I'm kind of lazy sometimes, let's face it.
Also, I was sore for approximately 4 days after doing these jumps.  Mama is not quite the cheerleader that she once was.  But the soreness was totally worth it.
YOLO.
