Diffusing Oils for Self Care, More Energy and Better Health

Self care february (10)

Today I started our morning out by diffusing Orange and Peppermint essential oils.  After a week of flu, migraine, doctor’s appointments and snow storms, we started our morning by diffusing some oils.

My personal favorite oils, these days, is Aromafloria!  I’ve talked about my love for Aromafloria unscented products before and now I have been given oils to mix.  I am an affiliate* for Aromafloria which means that if you love unscented products and choosing your own essential oils and decide to buy, I will be rewarded for my recommendation.  I hope you love it as much as I do!  I only recommend products I use and today I needed them.  This month I will describe how I use the oils and unscented mixology line in a variety of ways in my self care routine.

This morning I used orange because it is uplifting to the mind and emotions.  After cleaning the house of all the germs, the orange is energizing yet dissipates the smell of any harsh chemicals I used to clean the day before.  I typically don’t like to use strong smelling cleaners, but when the flu hits, I use bleach!  I also used peppermint oil to diffuse because it is known to help clear congestion, reduce fever and is good for the nerves and stomach.

Trying Medications that Fail

I just ran across this article I wrote in 2016 for Newlifeoutlook.

It is just another reminder of all the crazy things I try in order to feel better! I’m constantly trying new medications, therapies and life style changes to fit my individual needs.

Medications are such an important part of fighting Migraine and something that is so personal. There is a lot that doesn’t work and makes things worse or different. This was a major fail!


Best My Migraine Life posts of 2017

Here’s a few of the most popular posts from 2017.  If it’s cold where you are, it’s a good time to cuddle up and catch up on some reading.

How we doctor my dog and she doctors me

This is going to be a short and sweet post. I’ve been sick since Christmas and my brain is feeling less than creative. In fact it’s down right stuffy, pained, exhausted, a bit sad, stressed and frustrated.

So I thought I’d share a fur baby and girl baby story that I think many of you will appreciate….

As I sat with a sinus infection, while experiencing side effects from new meds and my son being sick with constant meltdowns I watched my daughter “doctor up” my dog yesterday.

All she wanted from Santa was a pet vet clinic, she loves animals! I watched my dog wait in the waiting room (yes, that’s my SensaCalm weighted blanket on the couch that I have been hibernating under while I’m sick! Affiliate link)

Then she was seen by the doctor

That evening I missed a big traditional family dinner. As I sat in my dark room, my dog held my hand and kept me company for hours.

The head pain of Migraine is really extreme! All of the other things really suck! And there are a lot of other things (body aches, nausea, cold hands/feet/nose, etc)! One of the hardest things is being alone and missing out though! It’s really hard!

My dog is more than a dog, especially during these times. She is my sanity and a soul that is literally by my side during dark times. Anyone who has cried holding their pet can understand the depths of this bond.

I’m so proud that my daughter is such an avid animal lover. She gives and receives love in the biggest way and has the biggest heart. Seeing her show the love and compassion that my dog shows is something really special! ❤️❤️

Anyone else spending extra time with their fur baby being sick this Winter break?

Am I the only one fighting being sick while having sick children?

A new trial is being done to help medical research for migraines.


Chronic migraine headaches can interfere with work, family, and leisure. Medications may not manage the pain, nausea, dizziness and other symptoms associated with migraines. This trial may help people suffering from chronic migraines maintain their lifestyle better. Please share this study with your community and help medical research for migraines.

Please complete the online questionnaire to see if you are eligible for the trial

Learn more about this trial on the sponsor website.

If you are not familiar with clinical trials, here are some FAQs:

Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans.  All new investigational medications and devices must undergo several clinical trials, often involving thousands of people.

Why participate in a clinical trial?

You will have access to new investigational treatment that wouldn’t be available to the general public only upon approval.  You will also review study-related medical care and attention from clinical trial staff at research facilities.  Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatment for others in the future.

Enjoying unscented bath products to fit my sensitive smell needs with Aromafloria


*This post contains affiliate links. My opinions are my own and I will receive compensation for my referral. I was given the unscented line for review. See disclaimer

I am highly sensitive to scent! Because of this, I am particular about bath products I use.  Fake over scented products make me sick!  I previously reviewed Aromafloria’s Muscle Soak. I love their products!  The bath products were subtle and soothed my muscles.

I keep the inhalation beads in my purse and recommend them for times when the environment is filled with trigger smells.  The inhalation beads are a quick smell for relief.

Recently I have become more interested in essential oils and mixing my own products.  Some days I enjoy a scent, other days I benefit from another oil and some days I want NO SMELL.  When I received unscented products from their mixology line I used them in a variety of ways. Simply,

  1. “Select your preferred base product.
  2. Add your preferred essential-oil blend.
  3. Mix, smell and enjoy.”

The unscented line provides so many options for so many needs.  I keep the bath & shower oil in my shower. It deeply penetrates and hydrates before I step out of the shower.   I love the salt scrub with oils to provide a spa like feeling.  The massage oil works great for my aching muscles and is perfect mixed with relaxing and healing oils.  The body butter is luscious and smooth.  I use it completely unscented and love the hydration it provides without smelly trigger perfumes.

The ability to alter these products with oils and to use scentless is such a luxury! If you or a loved one is sensitive to smell, I highly recommend these products!

Here’s the exciting news…..

Aromafloria is giving away an amazing prize pack just for My Migraine Life followers!
