Deserts, Mountains, Oceans, Oh My!

Can you believe I have been sick for 5 weeks! Yep, I came down with something just before New Years when we arrived to Desert Pool Hot Springs.  I used my oils and felt it could have been worse…but the coughing (most likely made worse from my asthma, lingered and lingered on).  Then 2 days ago I came down with a sore throat I thought I was in store for another round of something, but I feel better today thank you doTERRA!  No one else got sick again thanks to the oils, we diffused them as well as put them on the soles of our feet.  Until Doug started with a sore throat 2 weeks ago, our daughter’s bo was fighting something and I suppose he caught it when he let his guard down as I was on the mends.


On the bright side, we spent 3 glorious weeks at Desert Pools Resort, a wonderful little oasis near Palms Springs, Ca. They have Mineral pools fed by hot springs from deep in the Earth.  It felt so healing, wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else during my sickness. The sites were spacious, the park itself had much to offer, with putt putt golf, pickle ball, etc.  Not to mention the heated pool and kids crafting. We explored the desert and enjoyed the Thursday night Street Market, as well as, our trip to Joshua Tree.  Doug spent much of his climbing years there.  Beautiful land formations.
