Easter is right around the corner! This happens to be one of my favorite times of year. The Easter bunny will be here soon and watching the kids find eggs always comes with lots of laughs. One thing we don't do on Easter is lots of candy and when the kids already had enough play-doh and matchbox cars I was searching for goodies to put in there!
Last year I tried making egg shaped bath bombs and they were a huge hit with the kids! These bath bombs are infused with essential oils so they come with great calming and immune supporting benefits. The epsom salt helps the body detox and the fizzy citric acid is fun to play with. You can color them with natural dyes by using activated charcoal, pumpkin seed oil or beet powder. They are very easy to customize with what you have on hand.
Diffuser blends to set intention in the new decade!
It's an exciting time of year as everyone begins to look toward the future and set their intentions for the new year. Some like to call them resolutions, but I have never felt good about using that term. Instead I like to sit and meditate during the week after Christmas. This is a good time for me to visualize and set goals. I begin to form a mental picture of what the new year will look like for me personally, with our farm, and our family. I always add essential oils to my routine, whether it be for a specifc meditation or for an intentionial daily support we need.
This new years eve also brings a new decade. What a wonderful new beginning! With all the excitement I decided to sit down and create six special diffuser blends for the new decade! Bring on 2020!
How to keep Real Wood floors clean and shiny without nasty chemicals
When we moved into the farmhouse it was the first time I had real wood floors! We had laminate in the old house and I successfully cleaned them with my steam mop. I knew steam would not be a wood friendly routine so I started looking around for a new routine. Time and again I was faced with the latest and greatest products, chock full of chemicals that would disrupt hormone function, add to indoor air pollution among other things! I set out to create my own line of wood floor cleaners that would be super easy to make and use, sans harsh chemicals.
It's no secret I am a money saving mama! I like a good deal just like anyone else. I saved tens of thousands of dollars by general contracting when we built our house. So when it comes to essential oils, I had to find ways to squeeze every last bit out of those little bottles of goodness.
It takes experience to figure these little tricks out. Let me save you some time and show you my top four ways to put every last drop to good use!
