Enjoying the Outdoors When Seasons Change

It’s spring! We love the sun, the hope of new life, and enjoying family time!

Yep, we love spring – but what can you do to support your wellness when seasons change? In our home we have a plan and it works great.

It’s LemonLavender, and Peppermint (and sometimes Copaiba too, when we need an additional kick!).

Combating Seasonal Changes Naturally with Essential Oils

Talk about alternatives! You can use these oils either topically, internally, or aromatically – or a combination of it all. Something to remember – essential oils metabolize within two and a half hours, so you will want to be consistent and frequent in your application method.  

For my six year old, I have a mixture of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint diluted with a carrier oil (like grapeseed) in a bottle with a roller ball top, making it is easy and ready to apply even when we are out and about.

There are a few other steps we take as a family too.

We have found it very beneficial to use local honey, even with different thoughts on how effective this can be in the body. I prefer to use local and it fits our methodology.  

We also incorporate NingXia Red into our daily routine and have for over three years.

For myself, I have also added a supplement called Sulfurzyme. It’s a powerful nutritional supplement which has MSM, a natural occurring organic form of dietary sulfur needed by our bodies to help maintain normal structure of proteins. It has pure wolfberry powder in it (NingXia Red is made from the wolfberry) to support joint health.  

Sulfurzyme is very effective in helping to maintain a healthy response to acute inflammation associated with exercise, I use it daily – even when I do not exercise.  I take 2-4 capsules a day and I feel fabulous! Full of life and energy and my skin is vibrant and glowing too. I love side benefits to caring for my body naturally!

So there is our secret. We’ve been incorporating natural methods for over two years to support our body naturally and each year we discover we need less and less. The body is an amazing machine. I also do not eat gluten (which I do feel helps my body function at its best) and I limit dairy (having just raw milk and occasional yogurt). 

So get back outside and enjoy the weather playing with your kids – and breathe easy!

  • Hi Susan! Can you share the ratios you put in your roller ball?

  • It is equal parts of each 🙂

  • Thanks!! I’ve never made a custom roller ball before… So sorry if this is annoying – lol!! Would you do 10 drops each and fill the roller ball up the rest of the way? Or do you just pour and eyeball it? Am I being too picky about this?? ha 🙂

  • You are fine – typically I would use 15 drops of each and then if you want to add a carrier, you can… in this blend I rarely add a carrier, but if you have someone using it who has sensitive skin then you can add it, but I would not dilute a huge amount.

  • Thank you! That is so helpful 🙂
