Holiday guests will soon be arriving. Don't forget to add a drop or two of Lavender oil to the rinse water of the towels and sheets. You can also add a few drops to a terry cloth and throw in the dryer too.

If you use an artificial tree, as we do, put a few drops of pine on an ornament or cotton ball and place in the tree. Most guests will think the tree - just might be real!!
