I am so grateful for the opportunity to spend the summer at home with my kids. I know the stress of having to find childcare during the summer, financially, emotionally, it’s rough. Also rough, getting sick during the summer. Thankfully, this summer has been full of healthy fun in the sun and I want to share a few of the tools that have made that possible.
We’ve spent many days and nights out and about, between baseball, swimming, Disney, basketball, and road trips, our summer has been great. That does not mean it’s been stress free. Summer is a great time to clean and declutter. I love the idea of minimalism and am taking small steps towards that lifestyle. So far I have donated and tossed makeup, old broken items, books, clothes, toys, and shoes. Decluttering with children is hard though, the fighting, the inability to toss anything, I’ve wanted to pull my hair out a few times but that’s when Stress Away and Valor oils come in. A few drops on my wrists, a few deep breaths, and it’s all good. I put a few drops in the diffuser and the whole family calms down.
Summer has also been about shaved ice, burgers, pizza, hot dogs, soda, chips, candy, ceviche, sometimes all in one day. Tummygize oil has helped with all those stomach issues that result from our go big or go home attitude about summer foods.
We have had a few baseball games in over 90 degree weather. On those days, peppermint has been a life saver. It helps lower body temperature, so before games, even before my son puts his baseball uniform on, I have him apply peppermint to the bottoms of his feet, and back of his neck. I also add a bit of salt to a small glass bottle, ten drops of peppermint, and top with water. It’s comes in very handy in my bag, I bring it out anytime the kids and I need to cool off.
Thank the Lord we have been healthy all summer. I did lose my voice a few times after getting excited at baseball games. Those days, a drop of Thieves oil over honey, with hot water makes a great immunity boosting, throat soothing tea. A little cough, a little sneeze, THIEVES to the rescue. In the diffuser, or applied on the bottoms of our feet has kept us healthy all summer and we will be using it even more when school starts. Thieves has a big line of products, from cleaners, to hand sanitizer, and we use them all.
