(I totally wrote that to the tune of I’m a little bit country, I’m a little bit Rock and Roll )
So sickness has hit our house , I expected as much the first few weeks back to school. Greg has also been struck down, thankfully not with sickness **knocks on wood** but with the onset of arthritis in his ankle.
When illness hits I admit I turn into a bit of a hippy. Someone has a cold? I have an oil for that.. someone has the start of arthritis? I have turmeric powder and more oils up my sleeves.. I mean I’m all for modern medicine, I don’t believe oils fix everything but I do think they can definitely help in certain places.
So Greg currently smells like a doterra convention and Wesley is passed out. I love Wesley with all my heart but he definitely embodies the phrase ” MAN COLD”
Greg puts up with me but I don’t think he’s on board 100% but as long as I see a little bit of improvement, I’m gonna roll with it .
My main driving force is honestly I hate seeing my kiddos sick. Wes is so pitiful, he moans all day and is really just not prepared for how crappy he feels so he is ridiculously cranky and not easily reasoned with .. being sick is hard when you’re 3!
My favorite thing I like to do is have something on hand we call the “Tickle Roller “. It’s a roller bottle filled with a a blend of oils and of course a carrier oil. I was behind the ball this year , normally I roll it on the kids feet every night before bed. It helps boost their immune system and shorten the length of a cold.
I’m kicking myself for not being proactive but you can bet the brew is made and going on their feet tonight!
Tickle Roller Blend
10 drops OnGuard
10 drops Breathe
7 drops Oregano
7 drops Lemon
Fill the rest of the bottle with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil and your good to go.
Also make sure to use a glass bottle, the lemon oil will eat the plastic ones. This is was a great buy, roller bottles and oil all together!

Anyway, if I can help one person not get sick then this was worth it !
Till next time!
