FRESHEN THE LAUNDRY

OH boy! You did the laundry, several days ago, and they are still sitting in the dryer!

And they now need a little freshening. Simple solution - Just add several drops (about 10-15) of your favorite Essential oil or blend to a damp cloth and toss in the dryer.

Run the dryer on a no temp setting and let tumble for 10-15 minutes. Your clothes will have a nice fresh scent!!

You might want to try any one of the following essential oils. Spearmint, Peppermint, Lime, Geranium, Spruce or of course the old standby - Lavender.


ATHLETE'S FOOT POWDER

1 ounce Talc Powder (unscented)
Lavender - 15 drops
Peppermint - 5 drops

Add drops to a cotton pad and drop into the talc powder bottle. Shake well, several times over the next 24 hours. The Powder will be ready to use.

Sprinkle on feet and between toes after bathing. Dry between the toes well before applying powder.


ANTI-TICKS for Dogs

We are asked quite often on how to help repell ticks. Ticks are tough little insects (bugs) to repell. Especially since they crawl on the tips of their short legs. We have had reports that Palmarosa works great when applied to your Dogs collar.

Even dogs that spend a great deal of time out doors. As for other blends? You can try our Bug OFF Blend. A few drops of that put on your dogs collar may work well too.

Ravensara - 10 drops
Tea Tree - 5 drops
Lavender - 3 drops
Thyme (linalool) - 1 drop

Blend in an amber bottle. This blend should be used throughout the duration of the cold.

Either have the child inhale this blend or place a few drops in any room diffuser. If desired, add a drop or two to a carrier oil and massage on the chest and back.

This blend can be added to a bath tub too!

Please remember - little people - use much less than adults do. Start with 1 drop for every 2 years of age (1 drop for up to 2 years, 2 drops for up to 4 years, etc.)


A SPECIAL FLORAL BLEND for ELECTRIC and TEALIGHT OIL WARMERS

Geranium - 9 drops
Rosewood - 6 drops
Rose - 1 to 3 drops (or Rose 5% in Jojoba - 20 drops)
Clove bud - 5 drops
Vanilla in Jojoba - 15 drops

Unscented Soy/beeswax tart - Place the tart in the Electric oil warmer, then add the drops of essential oils to the top of tart. Turn on your warmer.

Once the tart has melted, gently stir the oils and melted wax together. Diffuse for desired length of time, but please note, these are all fairly strong oils and you may only want the diffuser heating for about an hour.

After that the essential oils will continue to diffuse into the air until the wax solidfies again.

You should be able to diffuse this a couple of times before having to add more essential oils to your warmer.
