This week has been a great week! Lots to celebrate!
I am enjoying my new job. The first three weeks have been all about acclimating to the new job. Learning about all the different aspects and responsibilities. This last week, I have been assigned to multiple projects. I am even getting to take part in a workshop this next week, which is a great way to learn more about the company!
Wednesdays are days I have started to look forward to the most! During lunch on Wednesdays, I get to fellowship with other women that are believers. This last Wednesday was a time to get to know one another while we planted herbs. (1st and 2nd pictures above) We got to choose from a variety of herbs. I picked lavender and rosemary.
Did you know that…
Lavender = Devotion
Rosemary = Remembrance
I knew flowers had different meanings, but I did not know that herbs had different meanings as well.
After Wednesday, I got inspired by planting these herbs. I decided that I wanted some greenery for my desk at work. Just a short trip to Hobby Lobby and I was able to get supplies to create a terrarium. (3rd pic) All the greenery is fake. I still think it livens up my desk. A couple of my coworkers made hilarious comments:
- I love young people. They do all the cool stuff.
- Are you moving in?
No, obviously I am not moving in at work. I have lots of stuff on my desk because it can be a great conversation starter. I want to be able to get to know the people where I am working.
Lastly, the bonus to working where I am is there is a Starbucks blocks from the office. When we had a cold front come through, of course I needed to go get a hot drink. (last pic) Lol!
Hope y’all are having a marvelous weekend!
Until next time…
During the summer, my exercise of choice is always yoga. I rotate between YouTube yoga videos and my app by Gaiam,inc.
My two resources for yoga:Yoga with Adriene and Yoga Studio App
Yes, the app is $3.99. Compared to paying for yoga classes, this is a steal! I love how you can schedule classes for your entire week, and it syncs to your calendar.
Also, I use essential oils during my yoga sessions. What essential oils do I use?
For me personally, I put the serenity blend or lavender oil on before doing yoga.
Essential oils for Yoga:
Hawaiian Sandalwood, Sandalwood, or Cedarwood for diffusing in the air
Serenity is a great doTERRA blend for relaxation. Contains these oils: lavender, sweet marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, sandalwood, & vanilla bean extract.

It is never fun to come down with a cold, especially in the warmer months of the year. Most all of my colds used to turn into sinus infections until I started using doterra oils.
How I have beat my colds with homeopathic treatments:
- On Guard – this is doterra’s proprietary blend for immune support
- I take the beadlets.
- I use my own homemade toothpaste that I made with the On Guard oil blend and lemon oil.- Recipe Here (This toothpaste is for oil pulling.)
- I also use doterra’s On Guard toothpaste.
- Oregano oil capsule – I take twice a day.
- I take the melts every 3 hours.
- Last dose of ZICAM before bed, I use a swab.
- Cold/Flu Bomb:
- 1-2 drop of Melaleuca
- 1-2 drop of Oregano
- 1-2 drop of On Guard
- 1 extra drop of Lemon because Oregano and Melaleuca are strong!!
For me, the symptoms that hang on are usually enough drainage to affect my ears, and I get that fun tickle in the back of my throat.
2. For my ears:
– 1-2 drops of Lavender
– 1-2 drops of Melaleuca
– 1-2 drops of Basil
For the tickle in my throat:
- Peppermint beadlets
- Peppermint oil in a roller bottle – I can apply directly to my throat or put behind my ears.
I hope these tips help you to stay healthy all year round!
