A nursery room humidifier for your essential oils!

Winter in the midwest can be brutal—everyone gets sick, the house gets so dry, we’re stuck indoors… (ps: there are 26 days until spring). We have a big humidifier always on in our basement to help combat the winter dryness, but I find that it still bothers me at night when we’re upstairs in our bedrooms for 6+ hours.

Holiday Scents to Improve Your Mood

It’s no secret that certain smells can be attached to specific memories. You might remember your mom’s perfume or ex-boyfriend’s cologne, the smell of the ocean to remind you of family vacations, or the scent of pine from camping trips with friends. Certain smells can do more than just evoke memories—they can also help you sleep or wake you up, stimulate the mind and boost productivity, or lift the spirits and and improve your mood!

With winter upon us, many of us get cold weather, less hours of sunlight, and the seasonal blues. So

Building Immune Support this Winter

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

If the cold isn’t bad enough, winter also brings colds and illness to this house!

I am so determined to keep the family healthy this year! I want to enjoy the festive family time, birthdays, and our vacation to CO
