Living With Essential Oils: April Picks

Living With Essential Oils: April Picks - Lemon, Geranium & Lemongrass Oils

 

Oh dear, April is getting away on us. It’s already half done! Our last couple weeks have been bogged down by a chest cold running through the house and I seem to have gotten worse than anyone else. And the snow. Oh the snow. It’s the gift that keeps on giving this year and we’d really appreciate if it would just stop, or at least turn into rain. Hard to be motivated for spring. But IT IS technically spring! So here’s a quick little essential oils inspiration for {what’s left} of this month!

Farm Days: Farmhouse Kitchen

Farm Days: Farmhouse Interior Inspiration - Farmhouse Style Kitchen

 

The farmhouse build is chugging along! The growing season will be upon us before we know it {we’ve already got seeds started} and this space needs to get functional real quick! I understand & fully accept that we will be settling into our farmhouse over the coming years, so not every room is going to be completely polished in adorable decor by June. Gosh, we probably won’t even have “finished” flooring in large chunks of the house. C’est le vie. But functioning toilets, sinks & showers and a mostly completed kitchen are top on my list. Today, I’m sharing a peek at the kitchen progress.
