Relieving Stress

Brad and I have both had a lot on our plates lately and once again I totally forgot to set up an essential oil diffuser which always helps to relieve stress. I found one I really like that is available from Melaleuca and just now ordered another one for the living room and I’ll use Thieves and Frankincense blend in it.

I was using this in the bedroom where I spin and decided to move it into the workroom and use Lemon and Lavender essential oil blend with it.

This is a Ceramic Diffuser that is available from Young Living and I keep it in my bedroom. I find it’s best to have a different diffuser for specific blends of oil. I only use Lemon, Lavender and Valor in this one.

Another good remedy for stress is a cup of Yellow and Blue from Harney & Sons Teas. It is a perfect blend of Lavender and Chamomile and tastes great with a little honey. It also makes a soothing eye wash for tired eyes, sans the honey. Just let the tea steep and pour it off and let it cool, dip a clean flannel cloth in it, wring it out and lay it across your eyes while you stretch out in your favorite chair.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
