Those that have read previous blog posts know that I have some female issues. I have PCOS and this causes irregular menstrual cycles. Most of the time I skip a month or I'm late. Recently, my menstrual cycle has lasted 3 months with a few days break here and there of just spotting. After going to my doctor and finding that nothing major was going on, I decided to change a few things.

First, I cut out soda. This lessened the flow, but it did not stop. Then I added doTERRA's Phytoestrogen on 9/23/2014.

Today, I am happy to report that I have been 5 days free! No menstrual cycle, no spotting, no nothing. It's FABULOUS!!! I'm hoping this will allow my body to adjust my hormones and I can lose weight and feel great!

I'm so glad this has worked for me! I hope it can work for other PCOS sufferers as well!

If you haven't read previous posts then you are not aware that I have PCOS. Well, you are now! :)
I'm currently experiencing some female issues. Basil, Clary Sage, and Cypress were some of the top oils listed.

I always add oils to my bath at night. I grab a book and unwind. Tonight I added Clary Sage (I've used this one in bath water before) and Cypress. It smelled so good and was nice and relaxing. That was until it felt like I was being stung my 100 bees on my legs. It got so bad I had to get out of the water. I guess my body just doesn't like Cypress oil.

From now on I'll be using this oil on my feet only. That was so painful. After I dried off I applied some of my lavender/coconut oil mixture all over my legs and the stinging subsided shortly after application.

Needless to say I won't be doing that again.

When Life Hands You...

LIME Essential Oil... Use it in lotion!

I have the worst nails ever. They are thin and brittle. I have my Granny to thank for that.

I recently purchased Lime EO because I love lime scented and flavored everything. I love the smell, the taste, I just love it. I looked up uses for it and saw that it was good for finger nails. So I added some to coconut oil, put it in a jar, and use it has a hand lotion.

My nails are getting long and they aren't flimsy like they used to be. Before I could bend them downward and the nail would touch my finger tip. They were just so thin, the slightest bump would tear them. Not any more. They seem to be much stronger and are growing nicely.

What's That Smell?

We just recently got new neighbors. They are very nice people and their kids are the cutest. If any of you have lived in an apartment, you know that you can smell your neighbors. Sometimes you smell what they are cooking for dinner, their wacky tabacky, and sometimes you can even smell the laundry soap or dryer sheets they are using as they wash clothes. 

One day I came home from work and I thought something died in my apartment. I couldn't figure out what the smell was. I turned on all the exhaust fans in the house. The smell finally went away. A few nights later we had friends over for dinner. We were in the middle of eating and that smell started filling up my apartment again. That's when I was told that the new neighbors are cooking with fish oil. 

I honestly don't know how someone could cook with that stuff. I don't care how good it is for you, the smell alone makes me gag. Now that I have a diffuser I put that sucker to use. Every time I start to smell that nasty odor I just fire up the diffuser. I have discovered that Purify and Citrus Bliss are a lovely combo. I place 2 drops of Purity and 3 drops of Citrus Bliss into the water and it does a great job of getting rid of the fish oil smell. 

I can live happy again! :)
