I like essential oils. I may have mentioned that once or twice in the past here. Like, A LOT. I even have a fancy case somewhere to hold them all.
Backstory: I’m trying to sell my house, so my sister came over to help me “declutter.” Now I can’t find anything that I actually used on a daily basis, like my essential oil case. I finally know how the hubby feels every time I clean his desk off. Fortunately I always keep a few bottles stashed around the house.
So where was I? Oh yeah, I love essential oils. Did I mention I can’t find most of mine? Yeah, I’m sad about that. I use them for everything. Let me tell you what everything entails.
I have dogs. Fortunately, that’s not a bad thing. But they’re dogs. I like having a fresh clean smelling house. Not a house that smells like dog. So part of that is keeping the house and the dogs clean, but it also means using Grapefruit or Lemongrass or sometimes even Patchouli in my aromatherapy diffuser.
Have you ever used a vacuum? Have you ever swept up something that then gets mixed in the vacuum canister with all that dirt and makes your vacuum smell strange forever? I have a vacuum that I love (I won’t mention the brand) but the hubby swept up some coffee grounds and then the vacuum started smelling strange. Even after it was emptied and cleaned out. So I tried putting a drop of essential oil on the filter that filters the air after the dirt gets collected in the canister. Now it still smells like a vacuum, but now it doesn’t smell like a mixture of dirt, dog hair and moldy coffee.
And here’s a little secret. It’s kind of hard to keep a diffuser going when you’re selling your house and have showings. So I like to put a little carrier oil in a candle warmer and then add in a few drops of my favorite essential oil (no they don’t come in chocolate chip cookie scent) and leave the candle warmer turned on and in an out of the way spot to make my house feel more inviting.
But the problem is that my sister hid my essential oil case. I don’t know where they all are and all I have handy are my peppermint and lavender oils. Fortunately Nature’s Bounty© came to the rescue with a well-timed package of a variety of Earthly Elements™ essential oils for me to use. Talk about a lifesaver. Thrive in the vacuum filter. Grapefruit in the candle warmer. Lavender on my pillow. I wonder if I can give the dogs a bath in Lemongrass oil? Come on Wal-Mart? Where’s the gallon size jug? I’ve got a stinky dog I need to get clean.
