Personal Oil Diffuser For Personal Wellness

I am all for using an oil diffuser to keep my son and myself healthy! I like to use essential oils to add a natural scent and freshen up our indoor air. I also like to use aromatherapy to improve our health! When my son starts sniffling, sneezing, or even coughing, I quickly pull out the oil diffuser and oils! We found a personal oil diffuser for personal wellness that is compact and packs a punch!

My son has Autism and when he starts to get upset or needs to calm down, aromatherapy really does help! My favorite go-to oil is Lavender! I just add a few drops into our diffuser and it takes about 15 to 20 minutes and my son is calmed down from whatever triggered him. It also helps in the evening if he is too energetic!

Fresh Strawberry Cobbler

berry cobbler

Strawberry season is picking up in our area of North Carolina. My daughter’s favorite snack is sliced fresh strawberries and popcorn. She’s the kind of gal that likes a little salty with her sweet.

I keep several pints of strawberries in my fridge. We even have a field-trip with her preschool class coming up. We get to tour a local Strawberry Farm and pick our own berries to bring home.

The problem with these sweet berries is that when they’re in season, the go bad quickly. When I overshoot my grocery list and bring too many strawberries home, I have to act fast and find other ways to incorporate them.
