Focus and Memory Blend

School time is here so I figured this post would be appropriate for those that are in school.

Another "pastime" of mine is going to school. I am working towards a Nurse Practitioner degree, with an anticipated graduation date of May 2020. I decided to take time off from school with my baby being due any day now, so I've postponed my graduation date by another year. Anyways, as I was taking Pathophysiology class a couple semesters ago, I looked up some essential oils to help me focus as I was studying for my exams and writing my papers.

DIY Leave-In Conditioner
