Essential Oils: The three wisemen were clearly on to something…

A friend told me the other day, “Oh in the end you will fall for that din pala. Sa dami ng tinanggihan mong alternative treatment sa cancer, dyan din pala bagsak mo.” My dear, my stand regarding cancer treatment is still the same. I continue to trust and follow whatever treatment and medication Bianca’s doctor deem best for her. I haven’t abandoned Science, for this same Science has kept Bianca’s health stable all these years. What attracted me to essential oils is the fact that it never asserted itself as something that can replace Bianca’s current treatment and management for her Thyroid cancer. If anything, it only promises to make her, and my family, feel good which in essence is what makes any Science based cancer treatment effective as well. 
  

Eversince we’ve used essential oils, we’ve managed to significantly reduce Bianca’s dependency on chemical drugs for minor health issues such as cough, colds, asthma, allergic rhinitis, migraine, pain, and dysmennhorea. It has also helped boost her immune system and manage her energy and stress levels. She’s been through a lot of medical procedures and huge amount of chemical drugs have gone through her system. When you come accross something safe, aromatic, and topical but gives the same relief as chemical drugs based on experience and research data, won’t you embrace it as well? 

Again, we have not traded Science for “chance.” I still have complete confidence that it will heal my child, but then, I also believe that these essential oils whose benefits and use can be traced back to as early as 4500 BC can also improve the general well-being of my child. The three wisemen had a good enough reason for gifting Baby Jesus the essential oils, Frankincense and Myrr. They were clearly on to something when they did that. I guess I’ll take my cue from them, they aren’t called wise men for nothing. Anything spritual, you have me. 🙏😌

Beat Acne With Proactiv

Filipinos are very particular about the types of products they use on their skin. They like to research about various brands and in their quest for that one product that works best for their skin type, they aren’t afraid to try different ones. Trust me, I know! I cannot count the number of times I did so, hoping against hope each time that it is “THE ONE” that would miraculously transform my skin from flawed to flawless.

Everyone wants to have that, flawless skin, but then, we Filipinos most specially, are forever haunted by pimples. Indeed those little bumps can make or break one’s confidence. In fact, it has been identified as one of the root causes of insecurity among teens. Add to the fact that they are hormonal, pimples are what makes them stay at home and withdraw from any social interaction.

Mindful Mom Re-Treat makes a comeback next month on September 16, Saturday, 8:30 to 11:30 AM, at Makati Diamond Residences.

While it’s almost second nature for moms to help others, it takes a little prodding for them to care for themselves. At the Mindful Mom Re-Treat, moms have a few hours not only to enjoy the company of other mothers but also to delve into their present priorities, past issues, and future goals. It’s going to be a physically, mentally, and spiritually refreshing day as moms take the time to rediscover and re-center themselves. Facilitating the re-treat is Michele S. Alignay, MA, Registered Family Psychologist and mom of two.

We will also be joined by The Oil Natural Project who will be doing a quick talk on the benefits of essential oils in living mindfully and will have samples for you to try.

Sponsored by Belo Baby, PLDT Home & Goodbag, the retreat is a takeoff from Mommy Mundo’s award-winning Mom Manifesto campaign in 2015. It was conceptualized and created by Mommy Mundo Founder Janice Villanueva, in collaboration with Alignay and Mommy Mundo Content Head Jing Lejano.

Birthday Post

39 years of living and loving unabashedly. The blessings continue to flow along with the tears. The plan for the rest of my life is still the same: Live and love tenderly, passionately, and joyfully. Dream fiercely and conquer those dreams fearlessly.

My dear friends and family, I am grateful for the lengths you go to ensure that I am happy not just today but everyday. Thank you for your warm greetings. I pray for more gentle days like this for us that are oh-so beautiful.❤️????????

Happy Father’s Day

I remember how my relatives smiled in amusement when I introduced Nan to them for the first time. Not because his features were funny but because he looked like my dad, the resemblance was uncanny. I was not really aware of it until people started pointing out to me how similar they were in looks.

Funny because when I was choosing the right man for me, I made sure to pick someone who was the complete opposite of my dad, humurous, warm, flexible, and friendly. Later on I realized, these were what made Nan atttractive to me but then, what made me really love him actually was the way he cherished, loved, and cared for me and Bianca. It was the same way my dad cherished, loved, and cared for me. Everytime he looked at me or Bianca, it was always with the same adoring eyes as my daddy.

They may be poles apart when it comes to personality but their hearts beat the same, they beat for family. I am indeed blessed to have been loved by these two great men.

Tonight, I pray for all the fathers. May the good Lord always bless and guide them. May they always set the bar high for love so that when the time comes, their daughters won’t settle for a love less than what they deserve.????????

Good Grief

A random stranger who came across a past article I wrote messaged me today to ask this pressing question, How long will my grief last? It turns out today is the 2nd death anniversary of her husband. For a while there, I was at a loss for words.

The way I understand it is that, grief is never the same for everyone. The amount of grief one feels after a loss equals the amount of love one has for his beloved who passed away. Its been four and half years since Nan died and honestly, I am not totally over the grief and the loss yet.

This grief or sorrow is something that just stays with you. It settles quietly in your heart, unmoving at times, until something triggers it and pushes it up again forward. Usually a memory that would hit you so hard, it would knock the wind out of you, leaving only in its aftermath that familiar painful twist in your heart.

Eventually, you’ll learn to live with this grief and actually welcome it at anytime because somehow it also pushes something good forward, which is joy. Joy that would make you go through life grateful. Grateful that you have loved and been loved by that person. Grateful that you are still alive to celebrate fully for the both of you what is left of life after your beloved has gone.

Today, my prayers are with the widows, orphans, and survivors of all the beloved who passed away.
