Essential Oil Saturdays#2 - Aromatherapy Diffuser


Aromatherapy is defined as the "use of aroma to enhance a feeling of well-being." (Mirriam-Webster).
I'm sure that we can all think of a specific scent that creates a positive emotion or has created a wonderful memory.  Imagine smelling a fresh rose in your garden or maybe it's the smell of the sea that lifts up your spirit.  This is the theory of aroma creating a healthy way of living.
Many people believe that aromatherapy can clean the air and therefore:
- reducing headaches
- boost energy while easing anxiety/depression
- strengthen the immune system
- increase memory
- reduce pain
- and much more.........


A diffuser is an electrical tool that disperses essential oils into the air.  It is almost like a super fine mist or fog of aromatherapy.

I will try to include a Bible verse each week - one that applies to the topic of the day.  This verse below talks about fragrance and mood.  Granted, music had something to do with this "gladness" but I believe it is the fragrance that brought about the joy. 
"All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;  from places adorned with ivory
the music of the strings makes you glad." 
Psalm 45:8

Every Saturday I will share something from my own experience or feature one specific essential oil and share with you any information that I have found through online research.  If you are regular to this blog then you know that I am NOT "pushy" when it comes to selling - I just enjoy sharing anything that I have found helpful.  However, if you are interested in buying from "Young Living Essential Oils" we would be so appreciative if you would use this number: 10283796 (it is my sister's membership number & she will receive a small commission - Thank you)

Weekly Thankfulness & Growth Report #54

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo WeeklyTitle_zps5l1xvjx6.jpg

#54 - Weekly Thankfulness & Growth Report

If you were following this blog in 2015 then you will be familiar with my "365 Days of Being Thankful" challenge.  I have missed reporting on my thankfulness since I finished my challenge last year, so I decided to at least give a weekly Thankfulness Report & include a Growth Report also.  Growth in our Christian walk, growth in the garden & growth on this blog.  Finally, I am also including a "Posts From the Past" feature - ENJOY!

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo WeeklyT_zpstrtwftz3.jpg
This week I am trying to be thankful for weakness because "when I am weak then I am strong" (2 Corinthians 12:10).  I am most thankful for God's strength and support.

"But I tell you who hear me:  Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, pray for those who mistreat you."  Luke 6:27 & 27
One of the most difficult things to do in our Christian walk is to love our enemies. 
Read: Love Your Enemies

We had another record breaking weather week - 70 degrees in southern Michigan in February is unheard of!  I'm seriously starting to worry that the fruit trees will be getting confused.

I absolutely love eggs.  There are so many different ways to cook eggs and four years ago I wrote a series called "Egg Basics".  The post below details how to cook a soft boiled egg:
