Essential Oils

Hey all!

Well February was busy!

We had a birthday party for one of my little guys, Eli.  He turned 7!  Man, time flies!

I had a ton of signs to make to get out in time for Valentine's Day from the shop!

I also have some new signs that I'll be listing in the shop soon!  Here's a little sneaky peak of one of them...

I also signed up as an affiliate for Mountain Rose Herbs.  I have been dabbling a bit in essential oils for our family's health and finding something that was fairly inexpensive, organic, and not cheaply made was something hard to find.  I stumbled upon Mountain Rose Herbs and I'm excited!  They're not only essential oils, though.  They're herbs, spices, teas and supplies for soap and lotions!  A one stop shop for me!  Woo hoo!  If you are interested in supporting our family business stop by Mountain Rose Herbs through my affiliate link on the right hand side bar.  Please and thank you!

Bulk organic herbs, spices and essential oils. Sin

Just a few simple ways we use oils...
A drop or two of tea tree oil in each washer load as a natural disinfectant.  A few drops of lavender oil in the vinegar for a fabric softener.  A drop of peppermint oil rubbed onto the temples to help ease a headache. Lemongrass is great rubbed with a carrier oil like olive oil for aches and pains.  There is so much more that I can't go into today, but I just wanted to share with you the main ways we use them.

I have quite a few recipes to share. Some more are Pinterest wins, too!    I'll try to be back in the next few days to share one with you!

This -n- That

Hey all!  This post is a little mish mash of goodies...

First!  Happy Groundhog Day!  I guess good 'ol Puxsutawny Phil didn't see his shadow so it means an early spring.  Hmm..we'll see.

Valentine's Day is coming soon!  If you'd like to hop on over to the shop HERE and order something for your sweetie (or for yourself!).  Please make sure you get your order in by Monday (Feb. 4th) so I can be sure to get it out to you in time for gift giving!  Here's a sampling of what you might like...

New to the shop is a paint sampler of all colors currently available!

Of course, as always, if you have something else in mind contact me and I'll see what I can do! 

This weekend is the Super Bowl so we'll be having some yummy munchies!  I'll be making a new recipe that I'll share with you this next week!  (And of course a yummy 30 minute dinner roll recipe that we make at least once a week! Deelish!)  We're rooting for the Ravens!! (Our oldest two were born in Maryland and our oldest is a die hard Ravens fan!)

Enjoy your weekend ya'll!
