Life is good and so full of goodness! I hope all of you are well. Myself...doing great and love what I am doing....I only wish I could duplicate myself and accomplish all the things I want to do, places I want to go and see and all that I want to learn and look at Pinterest for more ideas that I don't really have time for. Oh my, right???
So since last time...here's a quick update...January came in with rain and more rain and 50 baby chicks for some new laying hens that have just started laying...getting 38 eggs a day now! February we celebrated my husbands 50th birthday with him summiting Mt. Shasta last weekend...something that has been on his bucket list. March, I was able to plant my garden that is producing lots of beans, peas and lettuce. April...it was still raining but attendees still showed up to buy Soaps, Bath Fizzies, Sea Salt Scrubs and Lip Balm at the Roses & Rust Vintage Fair. April concluded with Senior Prom for my youngest and his beautiful girlfriend. May can running in and out with graduation festivities and family fun on the lake. June has been filled up with camping trips, Lake Tahoe and some rafting to come. (See photos)
As for The Essential Olive, the one thing I have been really testing lately is my Female Peace Roll On. I am at that age where the "change" is happening and with some minor cramping, I have been using my Female Peace. I find that within about 20 minutes, my cramping has decreased...this I love! Female Peace is a Synergy Blend designed to ease the discomfort and imbalances of PMS, peri-menopause and menopause and it promotes a sense of well being. It contains the essential oils Roman Chamomile, Clary Sage, Geranium, Palmarosa, Rose and Sandalwood. (At the end of the blog is a list of what these essential oils do.) And with peri-menopause, we all know that our periods can become obnoxiously heavy as I have experienced. Because of this, I felt like needed to replenish my body with some iron and I LOVE molasses. It is like candy to me and so I grab my Blackstrap Molasses and take a couple spoonfuls (only 1 tsp. if you are new to this.) I did some research on molasses as well and found out that it is not only good for iron, but also for the following.
