Why l only use essential oils

eo 1

I once was the person who could spend hours in a Yankee Candle store. I loved all the different fragrances, the strawberry, pumpkin, lemon chiffon, milk and honey, winter snow, ocean mist and baby powder.  And walking into Lush was like walking into heaven. So when I first started to make soap, I used fragrance oils. I had so much fun ordering them.  (more…)

Gratitude List 4.22.13

The bombing in Boston this past week has me thinking that we are all just one phone call away from our knees. Life is so random, we never know what will happen one second to the next. This weeks list is a little somber.

I find it helpful to have this bag packed and when she has a class, I just grab my bag and go.  I keep it filled with everything I’ll need to help Marla and her students.
