Hello world!

Why write a blog?  I’ve been thinking about it for a while but I wasn’t sure anything I had to say would be interesting.  Well, there are things I want to write about and things I want to say. And maybe it could help someone. Even if it doesn’t, maybe it will help me.  A lot has happened to me (us) in the last few years.  While I can’t talk about all of it, I have been encouraged lately by the use of essential oils.  It’s an important part of my “survive and thrive” toolkit now.  I’d like to use this forum to talk about how essential oils help me and to spread information about essential oils and how they can fit into the whole picture of wellness.

It takes a whole tool kit to make it through this life.

A Foundation

  • Faith
  • Family
  • Friends

Adding Fulfillment

  • Function – Meaningful work
  • Fitness
  • Fun
  • Finding new interests

These have facilitated Healing:

  • Medicine
  • Essential oils and Herbs

And so as a bereaved parent, griever, cancer survivor, infectious diseases physician, mother, wife, sister, friend, sprint triathlete, and most recently, essential oiler, I’d like to share some of my journey with you.
