Do you read a lot of blogs? I do.
What kinds of blogs do you read most? I’m guessing you prefer natural living blogs that teach you how to live naturally. Am I right?
And what are you looking for when you read the posts your favorite bloggers share? Probably well-written natural health information that you can connect with, learn from, implement in your own life, and preferably has some evidence backing it up. Does that sound about right?
Okay, great. I’m right there with you sister!
Well, today, I want to tell you about some of my favorite natural health resources from some of the best natural living bloggers on the web. I know you’re going to like these resources as much as I do because you and I… we get each other. Right mama?
10 Favorite Natural Health Resources From Top-Notch Natural Living Bloggers
So, you know that I’m really into herbs, right? And, you also know that I really like essential oils too, don’t you. So, I’ve decided to break up these 10 natural health resources into two categories… herbs and essential oils. That way, if you’re like me and you really wanna learn how to use herbs, you can go right into the herb section, but if you’re into essential oils more than herbs, then you can skip on down to those resources and save yourself some time.

3. The Beginner’s Guide To Adaptogens: Herbs for Energy, Stress Relief & Immune Support
Mama, let’s be honest with ourselves and admit that there are times we could use a little help. I have four young children, and I’m busy. At times I lack energy, my patience runs low, and I feel worn down and weak. Thankfully, herbal adaptogens can come to my aid and help my body through strenuous times such as these.

5. Common Sense Home Remedies: Skin Troubles
I get a lot of emails every day, many of which are mamas like you who have a question and want to know if I have an answer. One of the most common questions I get asked is about herbal remedies for skin ailments. Seriously! Skin issues can be such a complex matter that it’s hard to give someone a simple answer or a go-to remedy through an email, but Laurie Neverman of the blog Common Sense Homesteading has all of that great information and explanation wrapped up in a pretty ebook. If you suffer from common skin ailments or you know someone who does, this book may have some helpful answers in it for you!
Favorite Essential Oil Resources

Amy Balis has created a set of guides, charts, forms, and other essential oil must-haves for keeping track of your oils and how you use them and bundled it all together in a nice, neat package of printables.

2. 101 Essential Oil Blends for Aromatic & Topical Use
One of the first ways I started using essential oils was to make my home and my DIY body care products smell good. At first, I only used one oil at a time, but after a while, I got tired of that and wanted to learn how to make my own essential oil blends. So, I studied, and I figured out how to do it myself… on a fairly basic level, of course. Oh, how I would have loved to have had a huge list of essential oil blends already laid out, tested, and written down for me. All that would be left for me to do would be to try each one and see if I liked it. Thankfully, this can be your reality as Rachel Zupke of Mason Jar Values has done the hard work for you and created an ebook featuring 101 essential oil blends that you can use for aromatic and topical uses!
3. The Herbalist’s Toolkit: Essential Oils
I couldn’t decide which category to put this amazing resource in because it really fits into both. Marleen Alelmann of the Herbal Academy has written an ebook from an herbalist’s perspective on how to incorporate essential oils into herbal products. This ebook is not only full of great, safe information on mixing herbs and essential oils together, but it’s full of beautiful photos and tons of DIY recipes for you to try. Herbs and essential oils can exist very well together. This ebook can show you how to get them most out of both of these natural remedies!
4. Safe Essential Oil Labels
Have you ever looked at a bottle of essential oil and wondered if it was safe to use topically on your 3-year-old… or to diffuse in your home around your cat… or if it was still good? I have… more times than I can count. So what do you do? You put that bottle of oil down, you go to your computer or you grab an essential oil book, and you look it up. Well, let me save you some time, girlfriend! You need these essential oil safety labels from Lea Harris of the blog Using EOs Safely! Not only do they tell you how to best use the oil, but they tell you what ages the oil is safe for, the latin name of the oil, how to apply it, and how long it is shelf-stable for. These labels are downloadable so all you have to do is print them on sticker paper, cut them out, and put them on your EO bottles. Save yourself some time, mama. I know you have more dishes to wash. I know I sure do!
5. Essential Oils: Separating Truth From Myth
Now, I’ve never claimed to be an essential oils expert, but this is one of those areas I’ve done a lot of growing in over the last 2 years or so. Unfortunately, I’ve not always been safe with oils, but let me tell you, if I’d had this book when I first started dabbling in essential oils, I would not have made the mistakes I did. Kristen Smith of the blog Smithspirations, has written an ebook that dispells 25 of the most common essential oil myths with sound, research backed information. This book is a must read for everyone who uses, or wants to use, essential oils as part of a healthy lifestyle.
