How cute are these?! Set of 20 wood slice tags (each is 2-2.5 inch diameter). Perfect for a gift tag or ornament. Add a few drops of white fir or douglas fir essential oil and even your artificial tree will smell like it was just cut fresh from the Christmas tree farm. Add a couple more drops of essential oil every few days as needed. These look great left natural or you can on them or wood burn them with a message or fun design.  Find instructions from Design Mom here on how to make wood-slice ornaments
Regarding sore joints, my husband is a runner, and I have used various concoctions of lavender, lemon, and peppermint for his feet, especially when he was trail running long distances. We would put the oils in an espsom salt foot bath and he would find relief. As a rub, I like adding clove and helichrysum to a mix of lavender and/or peppermint. (Sorry I don’t have any specific recipes off-hand but found or altered many of mine from “The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy” book by Valerie Ann Worwood.) I hope this information helps and doesn’t further confuse.
While it may not look a lot like Christmas around here yet, it’s sure beginning to smell like it! My daughter Britta and I decided to do a little experimenting yesterday to come up with a blend of essential oils for diffusing that would make the house smell “merry and bright!” I’ve been diffusing it non-stop ever since. It has definitely given me a much needed mental boost. My grinch-like mood has been greatly improved….much to the delight of my family. :-)
**Directions: In one bowl, mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl with a whisk until very well combined.  In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Slowly combine wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Note: if the mixture is foaming, you are adding too fast.  Keep whisking together until very well combined.  Using silicone baking molds, firmly pack mixture in each mold. Let air dry for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.  Pop out and keep in an airtight container.
Pour almost 2 ounces of your Castor Oil into your dropper bottle. Add your essential oils. Put on dropper lid and shake bottle. Apply to your scalp each morning and massage into scalp. Wait 20 minutes and then wash hair. You can also apply before bed. If you want to apply more frequently without an oil feel, you can make the serum using almost 2 ounces of distilled water and 1 teaspoon of witch hazel instead of the castor oil.
Truth be told, when was pregnant with my second daughter, my skin went haywire – I was a dried, red, itchy, flaky mess. ON my face.  It was horrible. Fortunately, I concocted an amazing blend of oils that literally transformed my dull complexion into glowing. I still use it every single day {and my mom swears by it too}. Frankincense gives this blend an extra boost of anti-aging awesomeness, cause well, I’m not getting any younger.  Get the recipe here.   
I love the packaging for this set. In addition, the variety of scents is great. I love the strong scents from each bottle although my favorite is the tea tree oil. Lavender comes in a close second. I use this product mainly for aromatherapy. I put a few drops in my oil diffuser and then on it goes...! If you’re looking for great quality and an affordable price, this product is it.
