Good morning! Let me begin by saying thank you to each of you who left comments on my post yesterday. I was overwhelmed by all your sweet words of love and prayers for our family.
I say this all the time (and my sister, Traci has even noticed this) but I have the nicest readers and you all not only leave comments for me, but for each other. You are such a blessing!
I shared yesterday about our difficult week because I wanted you all to know that my life is not perfect. I hope I never come across that way. I’m on this journey called life and at times it’s extremely difficult. But I can face today because I know Jesus. I am so thankful for that!
Okay now let’s get on to How To Stay Healthy After 40. Today, I’m going to share about essential oils! I seemed to get the most emails and questions about using them.
I know you all know this but don’t stop taking medications that have been prescribed by a doctor. Talk to your doctor before quitting any medication.
First, I’ll tell you for a long time I thought my friends who used essential oils were a little “koo koo.” But I did think it was interesting and I decided to do a little research into them.
Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They are very fragrant, clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin.
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit.
Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements. I personally do all three!
I have been using essentials oils for 4 months and I am hooked! I love them and use them everyday. Come back tomorrow and I’ll share some of the oils I use most often, and how I use them.

Beauty For the Heart~~ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39
Have a blessed day!
