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.

Farm Days: Farmhouse Bathrooms

Farm Days: Farmhouse Interior Inspiration - Farmhouse Style Bathrooms

 

Now I know that there’s probably some more interesting topics out there than discussing bathrooms, but you have to admit, there is something to a pretty bathroom. Maybe because the bathroom at our house in Calgary is tiny, or maybe because we’ve never had indoor plumbing on the farm, but for whatever reason, I’m super stoked about our farmhouse bathrooms {yes, two}! Plenty of thought, envisioning, and daydreaming is going into them, so I figured I would dish a bit.

Living With Essential Oils: November Picks

Living With Essential Oils: November Picks ~ Cedarwood & Rosemary Young Living Diffuser Blends

 

Last week, we welcomed winter to Calgary. Lots of snow & cold wind, which means we also had to embrace sleds, shoveling, snowsuits, and all the layers. November typically brings snow to the city and marks the beginning of the long haul to get to spring.

With this in mind, we have put together some monthly essential oil picks and diffuser recipes to fit the various moods of November. You might have noticed I said “we”. That’s because this month is the first time I’ve joined forces with my oils crew to bring you inspiration! We’re hoping to make it a regular thing.

Living With Essential Oils: Summer Sprays

Living With Essential Oils: Summer Sprays ~ DIY Bug Spray, Face Toner, and After Sun spray

In an attempt to get us organized {and comfortable} out at the farm this summer, I made up a few essential oil sprays to keep on hand. An After Sun Spray to soothe skin, Face Refresher toner, and Natural Bug Spray. They have been really lovely to have out there, especially the After Sun spray and Face Refresher. Those two spritzed on a cotton pad, are sooo soothing to the face at the end of a day spent in the hot sun & wind.
