He is LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Look to Him for the ALL the answers. He will guide us, if we'll let Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

Ringworm Update--Day 9 and Nose Ouch

Today is day 9 of the Ringworm saga....it's drying up!  On day 7, I added 6 drops of Melaleuca to the blend.  Over the past weekend it was hit or miss (mostly miss) in applying the blend to Judah's arm. 

Here's the new recipe:
"Slip Away" Ringworm Blend
 2 drops Oregano 
2 drops Thyme 
3 drops Lavender 
4 drops Geranium 
6 drops Melaleuca 

Add drops to a 1/3 oz. roller bottle and fill the rest of the way with Fractionated Coconut Oil.  Apply 3-5 times per day.  Remember, ringworm is highly contagious.  Do not share.  If you have multiple people who need to use this blend, make up a bottle for each person.

Remember to purchase quality essential oils from Spark Naturals.  Use code "sonshine" for a 10% discount on your order.

We had to make a quick trip to the doctor yesterday due to a nasty fall and face plant in the concrete (think ouch to the nose).  It swelled up so fast and bled and bled....so we went to have it checked out.  
About 20 min. after happened 
Judah wasn't quite acting like himself either.  A little lethargic and no talking, no noise whatsoever.  If you know Judah...that is NOT like him at all.  Doc was a little concerned also and wanted us to go for a CT Scan.  As he left the room we were in to go and schedule it, Judah started talking again.  Then, he started playing.  When the doctor came in to tell me about the scan, Judah started running around me in circles making noise (like usual).  The doctor said, aha! it was the threat of the scan and now he's acting like normal (lol!).  We say Jesus is a mighty healer!
 At doc's office-Judah wanted to see what it looked like, so I took a pic so he could see
So, we decided no scan after all.  Just take him home and watch him for signs of concussion.  Once we got to Nanny Boo Boo and Poppie's house for dinner, he was totally fine.  The swelling was even miraculously going down.  We prayed a lot and God answered our prayers!  

Rebecca from Camp Wander suggested Lavender, Cypress and Frankincense when I was in a panic and holding a crying child and couldn't get to my books or think straight to decide what to do for his nose.  Thank you, Rebecca!  I do not have any Cypress so used Lavender, Lemongrass and Frankincense in a roller bottle and am rolling it on his nose.
 This morning.  So thankful!  It only looks like a scrape, now with just a little swelling.
So silly!
All of that to say, I had the doctor look at the ringworm on his arm.  He just said "yep, it's ringworm."  I'll call in a cream for you.  

We are going to keep going with the essential oils for a little longer.  Let's get this to clear up without the cream! I've got to stay consistent with this.  So, I'm setting a timer to remind me to keep applying.

It's actually redder than it has been, but it's drying up.  Between treatments of the Slip Away Ringworm Blend it's really dry and almost peeling. 
Day 9
