Essential Oils | Medical Studies

Cool things I learned today:

The Bible references healing oils over 180 times.

People who are jazzed about essential oils besides Jesus? Doctors. Here are some medical studies on the anti-cancer properties of essential oils and how they’re being used in hospitals all over the world, and in homes to prevent the onset of many types of cancer.

STUDY 1

STUDY 2

STUDY 3

STUDY 4

And obviously, anti-tumoral properties are just one reason to use essential oils.

Matthew 6:30: “And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?”

It makes perfect sense that God gave us what we need to heal our bodies in nature.

Something else! Essential oils are effective against some antibiotic-resistant strains of illnesses.

If you’re nerdy like me and into peer-reviewed medical studies, check these out:

STUDY 2

Our family uses essential oils for just about everything. In fact, they make up our entire medicine cabinet! We have also used them to make items that replace toxic (and known to be carcinogenic) things we were using around our home, like toothpaste, deodorant, sunscreen, baby creams, cooking ingredients, dryer sheets, cleaning supplies, and the list goes on. Here’s a post I wrote outlining some of our daily essential oil use.

 

PS – How cute are the honeycomb shelves Ty built for me?

MOMMY MUST-HAVES | MOUNTAIN BUGGY URBAN JUNGLE – LUXURY COLLECTION

Hola to my fellow baby gear connoisseurs!

As you may know, I cannot stand baby gear that is obnoxiously colored or with characters all over it or that breaks when I need it to work. Enter Mountain Buggy strollers.

Recently, Mountain Buggy reached out and asked if they could send me a stroller from their new Luxury Collection. I WAS SO EXCITED. Strollers are my love language and Mountain Buggy are like my numero uno. My response was obviously yes. It may have been something super unprofessional like “heck yeah!”

Anyways, this weekend I got to take this beauty for its maiden voyage.

Each stroller in the Luxury Collection comes with a matching diaper bag. I am happy to report that Mountain Buggy spared no attention to detail. This baby has pockets on pockets on pockets. You organized people will have a hayday.

For $599, there’s no competition in the market for quality like this.

Also, Ty loves the navy and leather and said it is something he would absolutely carry. I’m pretty sure he’s scheming to claim this whole sweet setup as his “man gear.” We’ll see about that.

You know you’ve arrived when you have aired up wheels. #smoothlikebutta

I am loving all these posts with your babies. I am loving this post and the last two or maybe even three. KEEP THEM COMING!!!!!!

Sweet Springtime | Tulsa Oklahoma Lifestyle Blog

Our neighbor down the street is elderly and has a big ol yard. Ty mows it for him and he lets Ty coach Cade’s soccer practice there. It’s a fun little arrangement, and when daddy mows we hunt for sticks & bugs. I hardly ever haul my big camera out because I usually have one, if not two, babies on my hip. But every once in awhile I do, and I’m always glad. I love these simple times with my babes.

Harbor June | 7 Months

This precious girl is 7 months old, sitting by herself, rolling to get where she needs to go, and scrunching up her nose to give us the sweetest little smiles all day long. She loves her siblings, loves to sleep on her daddy, loves to grab me by the face and make funny little panting sounds, and can’t get enough of the outdoors.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 7 months (and one day) since we watched her come into the world. And it’s hard to believe that the person we shared that experience with is gone.

It’s also hard to believe that, when we were in the thick of those very hard days after she was born, I yearned ahead for the days where she would be happy, pain free, sitting up and smiling, and that those days are here. God is good. Every day I get to snuggle a miracle. A tangible reminder that God can be trusted.

I am so thankful to be this girl’s mama.

Happy 7 months, Harbor  June!
