I learned how to do the dishes and clean a bathroom, and how to do my own laundry. As you can imagine, my view of being a homemaker was a bit unrealistic! I…

Why and How to Diffuse Essential Oils in Your Home

Why Diffuse Essential Oils It’s been many years since I have used artificial fragrances in my home. We started using cleaner products many years ago, when our first child was born, and continued learning from there. Now, I get almost an instant headache when I walk into a store or down an aisle filled with fragrances. I used to love walking into Yankee Candle and browsing for a long time, but now it is hard for me to even walk past…
