Using Essential Oils and now I am thinking about an air purifier...

Springtime is here-the grass is growing, trees are getting greener, and flowers are blossoming, which also means that allergy season is in full bloom! I have suffered from allergy symptoms for years and am always looking for a new allergy medication or product to make it all a bit better. I have finally found some AMAZING solutions!I am having great sucess with my doTERRA oils and the other thing that I am very interested in are air purifiers. Air purifiers reduce airborne allergens (the stuff that makes me sneeze and itch!) by 99% I found some great ones on Kaz.com and as an added bonus I also found a free shipping offer: Receive free shipping on any Kaz order by using the code APR10SHIPZERO at checkout during the month of April. Enjoy the springtime!

A new adventure.....

I know I know..... We seem to have lots of adventures....

Almost a year ago I became aware of essential oils. There are some people at the gym that I go to that frequently add oils to the rocks in the sauna or pass them around in the steam room. I was so impressed with how eucalyptus clears your sinuses. I also have done a lot of reading about using oils as natural cleaners and disinfectants.

I have decided to run another home business (alongside my photography). I am so excited to be a consultant for doTERRA. It is a Utah based essential oils company.
I am so excited to share what I am learning with other people. I love that it is a no pressure business.

We have seen some amazing things happen while using these fabulous oils in our home. I have some great homemade cleaning agents that I can let my kids use and not worry about what they are inhaling. I have helped my daughter QUICKLY overcome a tummy ache, found amazing allergy relief, healed a rash my son had had for a couple of weeks - almost overnight, found headache relief, and calmed down our puppy.

If you are interested in hearing more, purchasing products, becoming a preferred customer (and receiving huge discounts) or starting your own business please let me know!!

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies today and they are SOOOOO good. I found the recipe on AllRecipes, but I changed it up a bit. I only used Semi-sweet chocolate chips and no nuts.


Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups jumbo semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Blend in the sifted ingredients to form a soft dough. Stir in the chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
3. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly golden. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
