Spring Discomforts

Easter weekend was filled with a lot of fun in the Totten household. Friday night we had way too much fun! Anyone else seem to get into trouble with their husbands? Aaron and I ended up staying up until 6am talking and indulging in too many adult beverages!!! SIX A.M! I don’t remember the last time I stayed up until the sun started to come up but it was much needed bonding time with my husband. Saturday we spent the evening with my dad’s side of the family & Sunday we had a lunch date with my parents & siblings.


Holidays keep getting better and better now that we have a little one. He loved playing with those colorful plastic eggs!

With spring approaching, we have had some strange weather here in Minnesota. About a month ago we had really warm week, followed by two weeks of cold and snow and today the sun is finally shining again. Talk about spring fever! Since the weather has been funky, my seasonal allergies have been flaring up. One nice day and I’m sneezing and itching my watery eyes out and then it will freeze over night and I am better again. It’s so inconsistent. Today is a bad day so now with April approaching fast, I am going to start taking precautionary steps to ease my seasonal discomforts.

The first thing I did this morning was start diffusing because I am pretty sure little Jase also suffers from the seasonal itchy, runny and sneezes. I added three drops of each Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint oil to my diffuser and am letting it run all day.

Next I pulled out my vegetable cables and made myself a little LLP Bomb! I am going to start taking these daily until summer. If I need a little extra bang, I add Copaiba.

Tip for easy use: Since you can use these oils topically, you can also make a relief roller with these oils. Add 20 drops of each oil to a roller bottle (Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint & Copaiba) and top off with carrier oil. I prefer YL’s V6 oil because it’s non-scented. You can then roll this mixture on the bottle of your feet and the back of your neck for relief.

Happy Monday!
