Summer Craft Night

Well, I have glitter all over the house, leftover brownies and chips, and scrap paper on the floor.  That means 1 thing….a successful CRAFT NIGHT!!  🙂  We had so much fun crafting together.  Below is a photo of what we taught each other and got to take home with us:

  • Modge Podge lantern – mine was an ocean theme with subtle glitter.
  • 2 scrapped greeting cards – perfect when you don’t have time to run to the store!
  • A stamped candle – I added orange glitter all the way around it, too.
  • Glittered clothes pin magnets – perfect for hanging photos or kids artwork!
  • Salt scrub with peppermint or lavender essential oils – smells great & leaves skin so soft!

Depending on your jar/container size, here’s the basic  recipe for the doTERRA Salt Scrub:

  • 1/4 cup regular table salt
  • 1/4 cup coarse kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup non-scented oil (no olive oil, I used sunflower oil but you can choose another type)
  • 6-8 drops doTERRA essential oils, I used peppermint and/or lavender

Mix all ingredients and place in a jar.  To use, simply massage paste into skin, enjoy the aromatherapy session and then rinse.

Pesky Summer Bugs

Itchy Bug Relief

Itchy Bug Relief

Oh my, summer bug season is almost upon us!!!  YIKES!!  I got my first bug bites of the season last night while enjoying the evening with my family in the back yard.  Had a great time until my knee started itching like CRAZY!!  I assume it was a mosquito since my poor knee swelled up as usual.  So I found this little article on essential oils aiding in those pesky summer bugs and thought I’d share with you guys.  May have to bathe in this Terra Shield!!  LOL!

I’d love to know what you use to repel these critters….so please leave a comment!  🙂



Tummy Ache?

Got tummy issues??  Living with a gluten intolerant person has caused our medicine cabinet to explode with all sorts of stomach remedies.  Finally, after exploring all those options, we tried doTERRA’s essential oil Digest Zen.  We take it internally and topically and have experienced WONDERFUL results!  It works really fast and is all natural…completely safe for every member in my family.  We have not taken the PB+ Assist but it is supposed to support digestion and immunity.  We’ve heard good things and plan on trying them soon.

Let me know if you have questions or experience with these tummy helpers!!  🙂

All Natural Dog and Cat Food

Life's Abundance Pet Food

After years of feeding our dogs and cats various pet and grocery store brands of pet food, we finally found a brand that makes everyone happy!  Life’s Abundance!!  It’s an all natural pet food that ships directly to your home.  At first we were skeptical about this online-only brand but now we can sing its praises, for sure!

We love that it’s all natural, of course, so we feel confident feeding our babies good food with no wacky ingredients.  They also carry treats and supplements.  Our cats love the feline treats and their coat look so shiny and soft.  And our dog begs for the pork-hide bones!  They are not soaked in harsh chemicals and easily digestible.  Lastly, all our kids eat the adult feline and canine foods and they lick their bowls clean every meal!!

Finally, all of these tasty pet products are shipped directly to our house!!  We are set-up on an auto-ship option where we can choose the shipping frequency.  And we receive a discount!  It could not be more convenient…no running to the pet store any more!

Go click on the photo above to take you to my representative’s storefront for more info!  Your dog and cat will thank you, I’m sure!! 🙂
