Rediscovering my love for computer games

Okay… sooo! I have been feeling pretty burned out over the past few weeks and I know that I have been neck-deep with the different things I do. I know that I have not been getting myself some relaxation and I have promised myself to cut myself some slack in the next few weeks to come.

I really love computer games when I was a kid. I was addicted to the Sims (who wasn’t?!), Age of Empires, Starcraft (eep, I am revealing my age here) –

With our mobile phones, it has been pretty convenient to play games. I loved Plants vs. Zombies, Sim City, and all those restaurant games. I haven’t been playing for a while though stumbling upon plays.org lately was such a joy!

They have a wide range of free and fun online games which can quickly be played from the browser, either from your phone or your laptop! I explored some of the games and it was very nostalgic!

Here are some of the games I tried! *hope I don’t get addicted to these, haha*

The first game I tried is of course a simulation game that’s patterned after Sim City. It’s called Lego Build & Protect. I love this game so much as it combines cute lego structures (which my kids and husband love assembling) and creating a city! Check out in this video below:

The second one I tried is called Penguin Cafe and is a restaurant game which is similar to the ones I have played before! It is also soo exciting to see soo many food games on this site!

Here’s a sneak peek of their site but best to check them out, really, so that you can see if the games you love are there, too!

Something that I probably want would be some plant games which I haven’t seen yet although Plays.org add games every month so definitely excited for new games to come!

How to ship essential oils from the US to the Philippines

Do you want to purchase essential oils from the US but don’t know how to ship them to the Philippines? Here’s a short video on how much I pay using Kango Express plus the number of oils included in my package.

The only downside I see is that they don’t have upfront indication of how much the package will cost but usually for 2kg and below, I would usually pay a minimum fee of $20 to $30. Hope this helps!

Essential Oil and Chemotypes

Did you know that some plants with the same species and genus(es) can yield two different essential oils that have very different chemical makeup, therapeutic actions, and most importantly, safety considerations?

This is very common for thyme, rosemary, and basil. 

Thyme ct thymol and thyme ct linalool have very different safety considerations so check out the safety data sheet of the oils you use just to be sure. 

Thyme rich in thymol is highly skin irritating at 1.3% max dermal rate according to Tisserand while the one that has majority linalool has no specific concerns. 

Happy oily Monday, loves 🌱💚

Essential Oil Highlight: Patchouli

Patchouli is my favorite oil, although I know a lot who may not be in love with the scent.

To describe its aroma, it smells like petrichor, or the smell of the earth when rain falls on dry soil. This scent reminds me so much of my happy childhood and makes me nostalgic.

Patchouli has the following therapeutic properties*:

Energetically, Patchouli oil is good for those who are always in their head and may need grounding (this is soo me, haha). It also balances your Earth element and I can totally relate with this because as a cusp-Taurean, my other element is the Earth.

How to make an essential oil room spray

Room sprays are amazing when you don’t have a diffuser or you just want to have passive diffusion. I used to bring room sprays wherever I go, and use it also as my car spray.
