Do you use herbs or essential oils in your daily life? I am trying to incorporate them more into my life as much as I can.
I mentioned before I wanted to learn more about herbs and I have been working on that this summer. How has your summer been? I hope it has been good. I have been immersing myself in learning more about herbal remedies. Finding more uses of my essential oils and practicing how to make herbal medicine. All of this is to focus on my number one goal for myself which is improving my health.
I am tired of letting illness control my life and now I am fighting back and taking control and as I journey along I want to share what I learn in hopes of helping someone else who is struggling.

On Etsy I have some essential oil diffuser charms that my daughter and I made. There are some pretty purple and pink ones and there are some brown ones with paw prints. Some of the brown ones have a hint of a camo look to them. There are no two the same.
