Tuesday Tip for Empty Essential Oil Bottles


Just a quick Tuesday Tip!


Don't trash those empty Essential Oil Bottles!

You'd be surprised how much good stuff is still hanging around in that bottle.

When I empty a bottle, I take it straight to the bathroom and set it on the side of the tub.

If it's a scent I'm not crazy about using for my bath, then I rinse and use it in a diffuser.



I still can't bring myself to throw a bottle away. 
I have drawers full of them, I'll use them for something eventually, I'm sure of it!

They are handy to mix blends in, it's nice to have those frequently used blends all mixed up in a bottle with a dropper and all you have to do is measure into a gelcap.


They also make the cutest tiny flower vases for those little violets and other tiny blooms.

For all your Essential Oil needs please visit Spark Naturals for quality oils at affordable prices.

Paleo Ground Turkey(or chicken or grassfed beef) Spaghetti and Fried Almond Flour Bread



Paleo Ground Turkey Spaghetti

If you’re in a bit of a rush and need a quick “throw it together” recipe, this is one to remember. 

I try to keep a jar or two of organic, all natural spaghetti sauce on hand just in case. 

It takes about 30-45 minutes to have this on the table.

No Ordinary Man~An Easter Poem


No Ordinary Man



Two crosses stood

on a lonely hill,

with a void between...

only HE could fill.

Summertime Mint Cooling Spray with Essential Oils

Summertime and hot weather are just around the corner.

It's time for baseball, fishing, camping and lots of other great outdoor activities.

If there's a cool breeze blowing, it can be glorious.

Truthfully, most summer days are stifling and if there's a breeze, it can feel like the blast of a furnace. If you've ever been to a Little League game in July or August, you know what I'm talking about.

the day you simply have to strip the beds and wash the linens.

Paleo Crockpot Chicken/Turkey & Bacon


I ran across a quick recipe for crockpot chicken, made some changes and it was so good I just had to share. 

The original recipe came from Ancestral Chef and you can find it here

Mine evolved into a one dish meal and I really like those on busy days. Also, it gets very hot in the summer time here in East Texas and it's always good to be able to cook an entire meal without heating up the kitchen.

This is one of the easiest and fastest meals I've ever cooked, also very, very moist and tasty. It will be a favorite, I'm sure of that.

Essential Oil First Aid Kit in a Tin(Purse Sized)

First Aid!

It's something you need when you least expect it.

It's smart and at times vital to have something on hand when you need it.

I've been carrying an Essential Oil first aid kit around in my purse for almost a year now and I use it often, it's handy, it's almost always within reach and best of all, it's an all natural first aid kit. 

However, it's been  time for an upgrade for quite a while now.

LLP Allergy Blend ~ Spark Naturals Oil of The Month for April



There are 35 million-plus people in the United States who suffer from seasonal allergies. Sneezing, congestion, runny nose and itchiness are common symptoms of allergic rhinitis(commonly referred to as "hay fever."


Those of us familiar with Essential Oils know that the combination of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils works wonders in the battle against seasonal allergies. 


This combination will not only help with seasonal allergies, but also food allergies and food sensitivities. 

This combination creates a powerful antihistamine to combat the reaction the body has to certain elements, whether they be seasonal, food or anything else your body sees as an enemy.
