Make It @ Home: Mood lifting Body Sprays

I love good smells. Who doesn’t? Am I right?

Spraying myself with good smelling goodness was always part of my routine, from the time I was in Jr. High, until I conceived my first child. When I learned what it means to have the word fragrance on an ingredient list I started second guessing the products I was using, along with those I was spraying all around me.

As the gatekeeper to my body, my home, and my children I look for better products now.

Therefore, I am wicked excited to share this recipe! You can use basic ingredients to achieve the same goal! Essential oils, Water, Witch Hazel, and Vegetable Glycerin!

By using essential oils to replace the body sprays, not only am I smelling good, but I can help others at the same time!

Did you know, you don’t necessarily have to be able to smell an oil to receive it’s benefits?

Also, good moods are contagious. Don’t let anyone bring you down!

So without further ado, here is the recipe along with some combinations you can use in your body spray!

Going Chewie: Crib Sidecar

WP_20131111_004We finally did it. After months of trying to find a good time, we sidecared the crib. Last night was the first night, and he hasn’t slept in it.

Unfortunately we have one of those kids that grows, and somehow ends up taking up the whole entire bed. So to save our backs, we decided to sidecar the crib. It’s an interesting concept, and a nice middle ground between sleeping with us, but still in his own space, using things we already had. It also takes away a place for me to dump clean laundry and procrastinate folding.

It was super easy to do. First we took off the railing on the crib, then lined up the mattresses. I shoved a blanket into the back creice between the crib mattress and the back railing, so that the two mattresses butted against each other., and voila!

Now if only I can get him to sleep in it. Moving a sleepy baby is like chancing fate.
