Springtime Blues

That time of year again.

Trees are blooming.
Flowers are growing.
Grass is shooting up.

Which leads to runny noses.
And general springtime yuckiness.

I'm working on combating that and made, what I call, a Springtime Blues roller bottle blend using my Young Living Essential Oils :

20 drops of Lemon
20 drops of Lavender
20 drops of Peppermint
1 drop of Breath Again Roll-On (this isn't in the "recipe" but I added it for the Copaiba that's in it.)
Top off with fractionated Coconut Oil

And tada! A roller blend to fight the "blues". ☺

I made this mainly for McKayla as she really struggles this time of year. A couple applications and she is good to go. ☺ Whenever she starts sniffling, I start applying. If I know we're gonna be outside a lot or something is blooming, it gets applied. Great stuff. 


  1. Oooo! Interesting! May have to give this a try.

    1. Let me know of you need help! ☺

  2. How interesting! I wonder if it would help me... I have a sinus infection right now. It sucks. Ugh!! I'm used to allergies because I've had them all my life, but the headaches that go with this infection are agony. :( I hope you all feel better soon!

    1. It just might! I'll be more than happy to help you out, just email or msg me. ☺ I'm happy to report that the Springtime Blues are gone from our house......LOVE my oils. ☺

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
