Spring Has Sprung!

May 25, 2016
Don’t you just love how everything looks and feels like a lovely impressionistic painting this time of year? Beautiful pops of color every where you look.  However, if it’s blurry like impressionism, perhaps its allergies.  Don’t forget to use the magical combination of Lemon Lavender and Peppermint.  Mix with a carrier oil and rub on your neck or the bottom of your feet.  Diffusing is also a great way to deal with allergies.

I love the feeling of garden dirt beneath my feet.  Sometimes I wear clogs, sometimes I go barefoot.  Either way, my feet end up looking like I spent several years living in a cave.  Here is a great skin scrub to get out the dirt and leave your feet and hands soft and refreshed.

Post Garden Hand and Foot Scrub
  • 4 oz jar
  • 1 Part Coconut oil (slightly melted)
  • 2 Parts Brown Sugar
  • Essential oils (10-15 drops)

Mix melted coconut oil and sugar in the jar until it resembles a past-like consistency.  Add to the mix your favorite essential oils.  Here are some suggestions:

  • Lavender
  • Peppermint
  • Northern Lights Black Spruce (good for dry skin)
  • Geranium
  • Any citrus
  • Bergamot
  • Cedarwood

 

After a long winter/spring of having the house shut up, everything begins to smell not-so-fresh and musty, especially our carpeting and mattresses.  Here is a great recipe to get your carpet and mattress smelling fresh again.

 

Carpet refresher  

  • 1 small box of baking soda, or buy the Arm and Hammer shaker bottle
  • 10-15 drops of essential oil (orange, lemon, lavender, purification, cedarwood, etc)

Put baking soda in a bowl, sprinkle the essential oil over the top and mix with a fork.  You can purchase mason jar lids that have a shaker top, or even a screen insert.  Or, refill Arm and Hammer shaker bottle.  Sprinkle mixture over carpet, let sit for 10-15 minutes and vacuum.  This can also be sprinkled on the surface of your mattress.  Let sit one hour, then vacuum off with attachment.

 

 

Soon it will be summer vacation and our lovely children will be home.  Just in case things are not so lovely here is home mood-balancing diffuser recipe to keep the peace.
