The Final Installment // An Essential Oils Series

Happy Friday, girls!! Ahhh! I can't believe this is the final installment of the essential oils series I started back in February.  It's been a wonderful learning experience for me as I have delved deeper into our Premium Starter Kit from Young Living.
Today's post will include just a few uses for a couple blends that come in the kit and a special gift for you at the end of the post!!
 The final three oils that I haven't gone over yet are Stress Away, Citrus Fresh and Panaway.  Since these are more specific blends, I didn't want to stretch to make up 10 uses for each so I thought I would just list a couple ways we use them.

Also enjoy the world's wiggliest vlog assistant ever!! haha!!

Our Favorite Everyday Blends

I thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorite essential oil blends that I carry with me everywhere.  This is what has made the daily use of essential oils an easy transition into our lives.  To be honest, if I have to scoop out coconut oil and measure out the drops of whatever ever I need throughout my day, I am much less inclined to utilize this natural tool for our family's health.

But if I can grab a little pre-made roller bottle from this adorable pouch, I find myself actually using my oils all day long.  We all could use a little more ease and simplicity in our days, right?!

Here are my three favorite blends I always have on hand.
You will need // this post contains affiliated links

Cuts & Scrapes Blend // also great for mild burns. this feels like a liquid bandaid on mild wounds!! so amazing.

10 drops Peppermint
10 drops Lavender

T is For Turtle

One of my favorite things right now is watching Emmett's brain just exploding with growth.  It's almost as if I can see his little mind working and figuring out life.

One of the cutest things right now are the little letters and numbers he has randomly picked up here and there.     He knows '2', 'T' and 'o' and '0' are all zeeeee-roooooow. haha!!  He also is convinced that 'T' is tuuuuuur-tuuule because of an alphabet puzzle he has with 'T for Turtle'.  This kid, you guys.  So much fun!!
This spring, before the days were quite warm enough to get outside and play, we did lots of morning baths to keep Emmett entertained.  Some of his favorite bath toys is are a Nuby fishing set and collection of bath foam letters and numbers.

The letter float and stick to the side of the tub and he usually uses the little fishing net to catch the little water animals and letters alike. haha! This is why we love creative toys that make their little brains work and explore.  Because let's be honest, when Emmett recognized the number '2', my mama heart just bursts with pride. . . even if he sometimes mistakes an 'S' for it instead.

This post is one of a small series I am doing in collaboration with Nuby Parent Blogger.  I am excited to be a on a small team of bloggers that get to share fun ways to use their baby and toddler products.  Even though Nuby supplied these little bath toys, everything I said is my own opinion of course. 

You can get your own fishing bath set from Buy Buy Baby here and the letter and number collection here.
