Living somewhere that actually has seasons is so different for this Arizona girl. I suppose I should say Phoenix girl, because parts of Arizona actually do get more than just really hot, or perfection for weather. Moving to a little country town just outside of Dallas this last year brought more weather than I expected for sure. Why is it so windy here?
I digress, but I do regret the big coat purge of 2012 when I thought "when will I ever really need these?" NOW, past self... you need them no you anti-hoarder.
Spring is officially a thing here, can I tell you it's GORGEOUS! The pops of violet trees, the green grass coming back to life, my friends and families noses running like a faucet, oh crap... that part isn't my fav... but y'all know, we have oils for that. #winkyface
From the stale cold stillness of winter to the lively sunny, still so very windy (does this stop ever) spring, it's time to freshen up the house.
Before I can really get cleaning I looooove to throw in a bright, uplifting, super happy smelling diffuser blend here are the handpicked favorites I will have on repeat this spring:
SPRING DIFFUSER BLENDS:
*if you're using your Aria in a large space feel free to double the drops of happy
3 drops of Bergamot
3 drops of Tangerine
3 drops Orange
2 Idaho blue spruce
3 drops Lavender
2 drops each: Peppermint, Orange, and Bergamot
1 drop Rosemary
so dang fresh
3 drops Lime
3 drops Bergamot
2 drops Orange
2 drops Rosemary
1 drop Patchouli
1 drop Ylang Ylang
whistle while you work
3 drops Purification or Citrus Fresh
1 drop Joy
Something I've really missed on this oily journey is perfume. There is just something about hugging your hubby and having him say "you smell so good". And while some of the blends I wear to support my emotions, motherhood, sanity... do smell good, it wasn't that same effect. So I made my own! Can I tell you it is just so dang lovely. Here's what I used!
Now that the house and I smell amazing I guess it finally is time to get out and wash those windows. That might call for a little Motivation Oil during naptime.
