So one of my things last year was to explore aromatherapy. I am now SO into essential oils. Some might even say obsessed.
When I look back on the things I did last year for the list and realize some of my everyday things in my life now have spawned from some of those simple tasks it makes doing these small things even more rewarding.
Anyway, I have this consistent arm pain and even though I have gone to the doctor various times they can’t seem to figure out what it is. They think it is something with my nerves but the tests are expensive and might not even really determine anything.
So I thought I might try a home remedy- and found this recipe for an essential oil. Wouldn’t you know? I have all the ingredients… with a slight change from the carriers oils… I use fractionated coconut oil.
Here’s the recipe I found on New Directions: Aromatic Blog–
So today I made the blend! I am truly hoping it works, at least to some degree.
The carrier oil:
Off to work now. Will update later with my food log from the day!
Logging food for the day-

Cream Breakfast Burrito
Farmhouse Salad – same as yesterday 🙂
I NEVER take bubble baths and forgot how insanely refreshing a nice bath could be. I modified this one slightly and did not use bubbles but rather calming and hydrating bath salt. It was lovely.
I highly recommend Shea Mountain and particularly the lavender. In all the things I have done so far this year… aromatherapy, plant purchasing, etc. lavender always comes up as soothing or calming.
As for other things… I think I am going to buy some more houseplants! I just love having that in my room… 😀 and I am trying to get back to my reading list. I am only like 20 pages into The Red Tent. I hope everyone is having a blessed year so far, let’s keep the ball rolling!
That is it. Burn incense. Not much more to explain.
So I have been watering my friend Kelly’s plants or the last few weeks and it inspired me to check this thing off my list. It really is nice having plants around the house, so this might not be the only one I get! 🌱
So I googled places to buy house plants and after I went to three places that ended up being grow from seed and professional landscaping places, rather than just a place to buy plants, I headed to Home Depot. They actually have quite a nice selection.
I ended up getting a Pothos Plant. I found this information about it, Pothos Plants, and the upside is, it seems pretty hard to kill. 😂
I got a cut little pot and it fits perfectly on the little table near my bed.
If (when) I get more it will definitely some of the ones on this list – House plants to Improve Your Health.
This was definitely something on my list but suddenly has been thrown into my life and is pretty exciting.
My roommate, Tracy, bought a diffuser,
A book about essential oils,
Tonight when I got home from work Tracy had “Citrus Bliss” going. It has some great benefits.
I am excited to start exploring this and think it could be something I explore all year long!
I am looking forward to exploring it for mental and physical benefits.
