Ten People + One Camera + One Tripod + Beautiful Flowers + Essential Oils = Fabulous Memories

On Friday our whole household loaded up in the van to go to the Bluebonnet Trail in Ennis. Even though it was late in the season, the bluebonnets were beautiful.

I love bluebonnets!

The real fun started when we got ready to take a family photo. We had never even attempted a photo of all ten of us at once. To add to the excitement, I had never used the timer on my camera or the tripod before. The first three attempts I didn’t get the timer set properly, and the natives were getting restless! On the fourth attempt, we had sweet success. Everyone was looking in the general direction of the camera with their eyes open and pleasant expressions.

The whole crew!

By the time we finished with this picture, the sniffling, sneezing, and watery eyes had started in full force. Apparently, several of us are allergic to bluebonnets or something else blooming nearby. I was so glad I had brought my Young Living Essential OIls, because I wanted to get more pictures. I put some lavender on the bridge of everyone who was suffering’s nose, and the symptoms stopped. Yay! I was able to get some more adorable shots.

Here in Texas the weather is great and the flowers are blooming, so grab your camera and go capture some memories. Don’t forget to put some Young Living Essential Oils in your camera bag to make the photo shoot more fun. We used Lavender to take care of itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, runny noses, and scrape. When we noticed that Annie was playing in a patch of poison oak in her sandals,  we quickly grabbed the wipes I made with Lavender and Melaleuca Alternifolia and then applied Purification. One uncomfortable, itchy rash avoided. Yay! I also used Purification on the bites I got from stepping in an ant pile trying to get the perfect shot. There was no sign of any bites by the time I got home.
