Three Ways I like to Prepare for the Winter Weather! {And the yucky stuff that comes with it}

It has started getting colder here in Kentucky, and I love it!  I admit that I have been listening to Christmas music in the car.  #icanthelpmyself

This time of year is so special, but it also has it downsides, like freezing temperatures, coughs and sneezes, and dry, itchy skin.

Here are four ways I prepare for winter weather…

1.  Thieves, Thieves, Thieves!!!

Using thieves essential oil in my house is the number one thing I do in the winter!  I diffuse Thieves oil in my diffuser by my bed and my kiddos’ beds, I spray the Thieves spray in the back of my throat when I feel something coming on, and I clean my entire house with Thieves cleaner.  To me, this combo is the ultimate triple threat!

I also use Thieves toothpaste for me and my boys, and we have Thieves hand soap in our bathroom.  I’m seriously not scared of anything winter throws at me with Thieves on my team!  :)  

And did I mention how amazing it smells?  Good golly, Miss Molly!  It is amazing!!!  I have yet to meet anyone who does not LOVE Thieves!  

2.  Lotion, Lotion, Lotion!!

I don’t know about you, but my skin gets soooo dry in the winter!  Like itchy and crackly dry.

Until I discovered this little beauty last year….Lavender Hand and Body Lotion.

You wanna feel like your spoiling yourself?…use this lotion!  I feel like I am treating myself to a spa appointment. :) It smells amazing and is so thick when I put it on.  I order a new bottle every two or three months and use it year round.  And even though this lotion is amazing for my body, I still deal with very dry and chapped hands each winter.  So last year, I made my own hand cream with my essential oils, and it was a-ma-zing at giving relief to my dry, itchy hands.

3.  Drink, Drink, Drink!!!!

I only drink about 2 ounces a day of this powerful drink.  I call it “wellness in a bottle,” because that is what it is.  It contains wolfberries.  Have you heard of them?  Look at what these powerful little superfruits do…

Isn’t that amazing?!!!


So those are THREE WAYS I prepare for winter naturally!

I also like to purchase a new pair of cozy pajamas, cute new gloves, and lots of scarves.  Oh!  And drink hot chocolate while sitting under an afghan on the couch.  {wink}

What do you do to prepare for winter?  I’d love to hear it!

  1. Traci, When I click to get the recipe for the Body Butter it goes to just a page about the oils. I’ve tried it a couple of times and it does the same. Would love the recipe.
