There are days where we could all use a little help relaxing. The grind of life, work, and multiple commitments can catch up with us in no time. Finding a few minutes to unwind and relax can be tough. Whatever the case, it seems as though taking time for ourselves gets put on the back burner. The reality is our needs to be a priority! It is high time we all learn to take pause and...R E L A X! 

With Tax Day coming right up, some of us may be up against a time crunch for submission. This is the perfect opportunity to stop and take a little time to slow down. This year schedule in some extra and much needed relaxation!

Where should you start? Great questions and that is where our essential oils,come in! Just like you, I collect essential oil blends and recipes. I scrapbook them in my Smashbooks and refer to them often. To help us all relax a little bit more, I pulled out my books to see what I could find.

Cleaning Sprays Using Essential Oils

It's that time of year again, to get your spring cleaning done. Sigh! I am not much for spring cleaning, but I know so many people clean their house top to bottom to bring welcome in the spring. I wish I was that motivated. 

Here's a few recipes from Essential Living from Aromahead, to help you get started on your spring cleaning journey! Or If you're like me, a few new recipes to spice up your normal cleaning routine.

Review: "The Aromatherapy Course"

Over the holidays, I picked up the book "The Aromatherapy Course" and began a quest in self-study. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, as I have not taken a self-study course before. Let me break it down for you - who would enjoy this book, what I did and didn't like and where to get it.

DIY Travel Board

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know I have decided to add a monthly CRAFTY post and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Since March is National Craft Month here in the US, this is the perfect time to start. 

Today, we're going to make a framed travel board. It is super simple and you can use it for a variety of things. It only takes just a few supplies to make. Let's get started... 

Story behind the craft: KB and I are always talking about wanting to do more things, but inevitably the weekend comes and we do the "what do you wanna do?", "I dunno, what do you wanna do?" song and dance. We decided keeping a list of places to go and things to do would help us with this issue.
