Essential Oils & Their Magic

AAAHHH! Don’t you just love the smell of essential oils? I just received these dryer balls made from New Zealand Wool and you put 3 to 6 drops of essential oils on them and toss the three of them in your dryer. They cut the drying time by 25% and get rid of static and the plus, your laundry smells like whatever scent you chose. Today it was violets, last week it was lemongrass (oh, that was wonderful!). Let me know if you would like to know where to get them and I’ll send you the link.

Of course we know about putting oils in aromatherapy difusers and in tea candle lamps but did you know how well they clean? Lemon and Orange essential oils are your block busters when it comes to cleaning. They can be used to clean furniture (I have a recipe for beeswax furniture polish which is great for your furniture), lemon cleans soap scum, leaves your bathroom smelling fresh, it kills the bacteria on wood cutting boards, a few drops on a cloth to wipe down your stainless steel appliances and they will shine and to make your own all purpose cleaner, in a glass bottle mix a cup of water, 1/2 cup of white vinigar and 15 to 20 drops of lemon essential oils.

And last but not least the great smell of essential oils in Beyond The Porch Soap. IMG_1065We use the best oils I can find. The company I buy from uses both a Gas Chromatograph (GC) and Mass Spectrometry (MS) testing on every batch received of essential oils and publishes the full reports to us. If you would like to purchase the same essential oils that I use in my soaps here is the link to get your oils:

Essential Depot

Now I am required by law to tell you that they give me some money if you do buy from them, but I would not put them on my site if I did not use them and believe in their products 100%. They have the best essential oils and your get your monies worth. My new website for Beyond The Porch will be going up next week and we are having a sale so be on the look out for it and it will have a resource page that will have freebies and some pay stuff on it. So go check it out every so often. Enjoy your essential oils!
