You know, one of the things about being a Spoonie that I am very aware of and yet always seem to forget is how quickly life can go sideways on you. That’s true of everybody but since the topic of this post is Spoonie Life, I’ll stick to those experiences.
I started this series out by talking about my morning routine, and, sure enough, the very next week life went sideways tossing said routines right out the window. Things are looking up in our dual spoonie household. I’m going to tell you a little bit today about one of the techniques we use in our daily health battles, Aromatherapy, specifically diffuser blends
Always remember that these are my opinions ONLY and what works in our house may not work in yours. Always, always, consult a physician, certified aromatherapist, or other health practitioner before starting any new regimen.
When you suffer from autoimmune issues, there are certain oils you should NOT use. This article from our friends at Plant Therapy has some great info.
I use oils in my diffuser pretty much daily. Today I have a mixture of “Energy” a Plant Therapy synergy oil, grapefruit oil and wintergreen oil. 3 drops of each which leaves the rooms nicely scented and makes me feel better. Here are a few of my favorite diffuser “recipes” from the folks at Aromatools.com picture from Pinterest.
A quick google or pinterest search will bring you lots more diffuser blend recipes than I could ever present here so have at it. Also, while Plant Therapy has in no way sponsored or endorsed this post, their website has great information and aromatherapists you can chat with, the blog has lots of great ideas.
Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
