IDK how some of you got the info, but yes, I was in the army for reservist for the past one week.
Eating the food in camp made me realise how fortunate we are to be able to have really great desserts whenever we want. Seriously guys, 能吃是福 (Being able to eat is a blessing)! 🤤
Wellness Tips ✨ | Stomach Bug? Flu? Feeling Nauseous?
There are lots of natural and herbal remedies to help with symptoms of common illnesses. A sick body could use the immunity boost and healing properties of natural antioxidants. ………………………………………………………………
Nauseous can sometimes be a tricky symptom to treat. Most are familiar with using ginger to help alleviate nausea, but peppermint can also be useful! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
:: 🌿Healing Properties of Peppermint Tea ☕️:: A natural decongestant, peppermint tea can help relieve cough. It also alleviates nausea and aids digestion. Like most tea, peppermint tea can help boost immunity.
The first moment I feel a headache coming on I reach for my peppermint oil. I apply some to my temples and neck. If I feel that I need to go a little more hardcore I reach for my pastense. This bad boy loves to kick the headache where it really hurts. This is the blend that people always contact me to say how amazing it is and how it actually works. pastTense comes in a roller bottle so it's easy to apply and is perfect for your handbag. This can be yours for just $23.50 wholesale. That's way cheaper than over the counter medicine. Want to know how to get this in your hot little hands? Send me a message
This is my tea drinking mug and the mug I use when I don't feel good (I'm feeling fine right now). I have had this mug since I was a little kid. I remember when my mom let me use it for the first time. Keeping cozy with a cup of peppermint tea on this cold night with my most favorite mug ever. #bearmug#tea#peppermint#boyntonbears#special
This week is Caroline's birthday week 🤗 so she chose our theme for school this week. Guess what she picked? Fairies, mermaids, and unicorns 🦄
so while pinteresting ideas for this theme, I found an activity of making and decorating mermaid tails with playdough! This included a recipe for homemade playdough.
Did you know commercial playdough actually contains a lot of gross chemicals? I didnt. I actually bought my girls more of the stuff for Christmas since the bug is a huge fan. Personally I just don't like the smell of playdough so it shouldn't surprise me it has gross stuff in it. Chance I can make my own AND make it smell good?! Yes please. I had seen several pins about sensory playdough, using essential oils, so what better time to try it out? My girls chose peppermint, but you could use any kind you'd like. #birthdayweek#homemade#playdough#peppermint#eo#yleo#nontoxic#mermaidtails#bejeweled#homeschool
We really do use On Guard everything! We’ve been using the toothpaste for over a year ago and we have no plans of using anything else. 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
This toothpaste has oils of 🔸Wild Orange 🔸Clove
🔸Rosemary 🔸Peppermint 🔸Wintergreen
Healthy mouth, clean breath, and whiter teeth. What’s not to love?
FULL DISCLOSURE: long post 😬
So as most of you can guess, i LOVE young living essential oils. I use them pretty much from sun up to sun down and they have changed the way I operate. Lets see...for example, I use a homemade panaway rub when i wake up every morning for my sore hands instead of an ibuprofen (34 going on 85 ☺️). I diffuse in the house when I’m home to either motivate, de-stress, alleviate cold symptoms or purely for a candle replacement. I have roller balls for stomach aches, congestion, muscle aches, and one I personally use as an uplifting scent! I diffuse nearly every night especially in the kiddos rooms whether to ward off colds or simply promote good sleep. My husband calls it getting all hippy dippy but i don’t care, (and neither does
he because he actually loves them too!) I love oils and think they are amazing and life changing and they come from plants that are grown in fields! I mean, why not, right? So with out further adieu ... Send me a DM if you have questions or thoughts or anything! Im here for ya and for the oils 🙃
Where DID this weekend go?? 😩 Started this Monday off with @Doterra Motivate to get going and used my peppermint and Wild Orange throughout the day to stay alert and awake! 😁
What are your favorite oils on a Monday?

Last night, I laid down and got the worst heartburn. Tried waiting for it to go away... a half hour later I decided to oil it up. Digize down my sternum and a drop of peppermint in water. 5 minutes later it was gone! Seriously an oil for everything.
Yes! project Replant from Cuttings is successful. This is actually my 1# or 2# attempt
1) Purple white flower is cekur flower. Cekur/Lesser Gangla/Sand Ginger is a type of ginger but if it's too old usually the sellers at Farmers Market will throw it away or give it for free. Cut to a few parts & this is part of it. So far most of the flower wilted away due to too much water or lack of. Most of compost were discarded tea leaf, tea flowers & earth. Didn't need much attention, just need to control water. The leaf is delicious as dippings/salad. Experiment: 2 months - almost killed it half way & due to cold weather, it was slow a bit but the leaves & flower is a beauty.
2) Pegaga /Asia Pennyworth (Round Petal like plant) - planted this due to it's various benefits for the brain/memory/health. Initially found on the lawn of a neighbor. Took a string cutting of it with only 3-4 leaf on it. Experimented it with water only (3 weeks). So far it's growing very well without much care. Just needed to check on the water & mosquitoes (doesn't even go near it, not sure why...). Will repot it soon on the ground.
3) Mulberry from mulberry stalk - growing well. Another week, will repot it. Those 2 purple objects in water - new experiment with Japanese Sweet Potato:- White & Orange variety.
4) Peppermint plant is so far surviving - got it from a cutting from Cameron Highlands (Yes. LOL. The seller gave for free). Mugwort plant is growing well. Already made several dishes.
If all goes well, going to attempt experiment with avocado & moringa in the future. :) Just need to scout for the seeds. Then later I can join Seed/Plant Swap/Donations :) :) #pegaga#pennywort#cekur#sandginger#peppermint#mugowort#mulberry
Known primarily for its culinary uses, Basil essential oil comes from the mint family and has a variety of applications for the mind and body 🌿
Basil oil is rich with linalool, a naturally occurring chemical, which is beneficial in decreasing feelings of tension. Simply apply to the temples or diffuse, this can also support mental alertness and clarity!
Basil oil also acts as a powerful cooling agent, much like peppermint, and can be applied after strenuous activity to ease sore muscles and bring a sense of relief 💪🏼 This oil can obviously be used in a variety of recipes 🍳 🥘 and is known for bringing the flavors of Spain 🇪🇸 and Italy 🇮🇹 to your table! Try making your own spaghetti sauce with this flavor agent and eliminate the need for preservatives and chemical additives 🚫
Ladies 👑 did you know that this oil can ease menstrual cycle discomfort? This oil is a powerful best friend when it comes to your time of the month! Simply take a drop or two in a vegetable capsule a couple times a day to diffuse the monthly unease 🌞
When diffusing, Basil blends well with Bergamot, Lavender, Marjoram, Geranium, Peppermint, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Ginger, Grapefruit, and Lemon 🍋
My two personal favorite uses for this oil are taking internally to support milk supply when breastfeeding 🤱🏻 and support proper draining of ears during an ear infection 👂
What’s your favorite use for this oil? 🌿💚
Thanks for the recipe @obsessedwithessentials. I made this throat spray for @perikalar since she has laryngitis. I put Onguard - the protective blend, peppermint and lemon - in a spray bottle. I think it taste ok !😁 #onguard#peppermint#lemon#laryngitis#health
