It is already the beginning of July . . . where is the summer going? We are super busy getting ready for the county fair in August (check out Aubrey and her steer, Trigger) and redoing each room in the house (everyone will have their own room before school starts in September). You can follow me on Instagram or on Facebook for pictures of all the fun we are having!
Along with all the work we have been doing we are getting some play time in too (sometimes this means we get scratches, bug bites, cuts, and too much sun) . . . which brings me to the reason for my post, but you will have to hold on for my SUPER exciting announcement for a bit!
So . . . back to the point of this post “Why I love Essential Oils.”
My mom introduced me to them a couple of years ago and I thought she went crazy. How is rubbing this oil on your feet going to keep you healthy or really rubbing oils on my face to help you breathe or get rid of headaches . . . sounds far-fetched to me. But then I tried them and am hooked!!! My new personal motto has become . . .
. . . maybe I should have copyrighted that phase before I posted it, but remember you saw it here first!!!
Because of my new-found love, I became a Spark Naturals affiliate a couple of months ago because I wanted to share my love for affordable, Certified Pure Pharma Grade (CPPG) Essential Oils with anyone who is interested. This spring I held an Oils 101 class and it went over great! I am thinking about adding one through Community Ed this fall . . . so stay tuned for more information! I also did a post on how to make roller bottles this winter and one about my favorite diffuser blends. Since then I have been using oils for everything and loving the results. I made a killer mosquito spray (25 drop of Nature in a 1 oz spray bottle and then fill with Witch Hazel) that has been keeping the MN mosquitoes at bay.
Look for more frequent posts on Essential Oil uses . . . and always make sure to use coupon code “clotheslinechic” when you place your order for a 10% discount, because who doesn’t love discounts that you can use again and again!!!
Now for my big news . . . Spark asked what oils we would like to see them add to their already stellar line up and the latest addition is Citronella!!!!!
I am so excited for this oil and this week only when you place an order and add Citronella to it you get FREE SHIPPING (ends Sunday). I am going to make some of these awesome Citronella Candles from gardentherapy.ca. I can not wait!!! Aren’t they cute!
Do you use oils? Or are you interested in them, but not sure what to do with them???? Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite use is for them or what you would like to know about them!
