The Kristin

I have sons. 3 sons. I don't get girly Time or a girly fix very often.  So it's a rare Blessing for me get Girl time!  My friend Kathleen needed me to borrow her girls while she went to teacher training at her new gig at the girls' school.  We painted our nails.   We watched movies.  I still had Jacob but he was so content to have the girls around, the girls were much more mellow.   I created a facial wash for Emily, who in her early hormone state, needed a good face wash.   So I put a Tablespoon of YL Orange Blossom Face Wash in a small foaming pump bottle and filled the rest with water.  So now Emily had a great face wash, and I gave her a bottle of Tea Tree which I've used as a spot treatment.  Sarah was given her nail polish to take home.  But for Kristin, I didn't know what to do.  She didn't quite have the hormone issues that Em had, nor did she want her nails done with anything but clear.  But she's a Girly Girl like me.  So I decided to make her something.  We decided to make a perfume.  I have some small 5 mL rollon bottles.  So I took her in to look at my stash of oils, and pick something sweet, and we'd make a perfume.  She picked 3 scents she liked, and we put them together with a carrier of sunflower oil.   It was Awesome!

We ended up using: 
10 drops of Joy 
10 drops of Jade Lemon 
5 drops of Coriander

I love how it turned out. The Kristin is a wonderfully refreshing sweet perfume of a blend.  That kid is a genius!

Happy Air Freshener

I have a friend with cats, who blew through her Lemon and Purification in her starter kit.   I was looking for something that may help continue to deodorize her home.  I came across this recipe in my EOPR section on Diffusing.  And I LOVE it!   I happily diffused some myself, and then made her a sample and sent it off yesterday!

In an old Lavender 5 mL bottle, I put

20 drops Lavender
10 drops Lemon
6 drops Bergamot
5 drops Lime
5 drops Grapefruit

I put 3-4 drops in the diffuser, but you could use more.  Diffuse it neat, or put in a spray bottle with 1 cup of water for a deodorizing mist . It's a refreshing citrus that I think you all will Love!
