Essential Oil Recipes

Pin to Pinterest

es·sen·tial oil noun  a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted.

I am your pretty typical mother. My home is a mess, but I try to keep it clean. My pantry has processed food, but I also have some organic vegetables in the refrigerator. My medicine cabinet contains drug-store solutions for headaches and other ailments, but I do my best to live naturally and heal my family by other means before running to the doctor or drug store.

Recently the solution of Essential Oils entered my life. They have relieved bug bites, headaches, running noses, cleaned my home, offered relaxation and even aided in a little weight loss. When my husband, my kids or even I have something wrong, I often hit my reference guide and see how I can offer a solution without using modern day medicine (grab a FREE copy of that Essential Oil reference guide.)

Take a look below of some of the BEST Essential Oil Recipes found on the web – Recipes of Food, Beauty Products, Sanitation, and even Homemade Playdough… I think you will enjoy the different ways, you too, can use Essential Oils in your home.

Christian Easter Crafts Round-Up Featuring Resurrection Eggs, Gardens and Rolls

Christian Easter Crafts – Resurrection Gardens

Pin to Pinterest

Why do we celebrate Easter? As Christians, we celebrate Easter because it recognizes the RESSURRECTION of Jesus. Jesus was killed by crucifixion on a Friday (Good Friday) and then actually came back to life on the following Sunday (Easter.) Easter is often adorned with bunnies, eggs, and pretty dresses, but there are many ways we can still incorporate the “cute” things of Easter by not forgetting the reason for this season.

Matthew 28:6 “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”

::Resurrection Gardens:: Using a pot, rocks, dirt and other creative resources, a resurrection garden is a fun way to plant grass seed and remember the empty tomb that lie in the garden.

Prior to blogging, I was a teacher and I absolutely loved it. Teaching brought about some of my most memorable years and I would go back in a heart beat if it fit my life and schedule. One of my favorite time of the year was spring for both teacher appreciation and volunteer appreciation week. It wasn’t getting huge gifts but it was the heart felt wishes my students gave that mattered most. By spring we had built meaningful relationships and when they would write me notes of appreciation, they always brough tears to my eyes. Cleaning out a cabinent with my daughters this past week, I came across some of those notes nad half a dozen years later, they still warm my heart.
