Essential Oil Room Spray

Who else LOVES essential oils? They smell great, are so versatile, and the health benefits are endless! I got this set as a Christmas gift last year and find that it is the perfect starter kit if you are interested in getting more into essential oils.

One of my most recent favorite ways to use essential oils is to make a room spray.

Interested? First you’ll need to get spray bottles. I purchased these and loved them. The blue glass protects the formula from going bad and they are really great quality for the low price. Add 1 1/2 cups distilled water and 3 ounces rubbing alcohol to the bottle. The alcohol will help the oil and water stay mixed together. Use a dropper to mix in about 30 drops of oil, and BAM, there is your room spray. So easy, right?!

My favorite combos are… Citrus Mint (10 peppermint, 20 orange), Lavender (30 lavender), and Mojito (15 peppermint, 15 lime). I use the minty ones in the bathroom because they cover up yucky smells and the lavender one I like to spray on my pillow before bedtime.

Try this out and let me know what you think, XOXO!

Wine: A Tasting Course

In my first wine review, I referenced a book that I have been using to help me learn more about wine and today I’m excited to share it on my blog. The book is called “Wine: A Tasting Course” and I have loved every minute of reading through it! I spent some time in the past researching and paging through other wine books. In comparison I think this one is the best for a few reasons.

First of all it is not “stuffy”. This book is ideal for someone like myself, an average person who is looking to expand on wine knowledge. The setup is also extremely easy to follow. I use the first half of the book to read through page-by-page and mark off areas I may want to go back to. I use the second half by opening a bottle of wine (my favorite part) and referencing the corresponding area of the book. It has been really fun to match up the wine and book. I find that it helps me understand the information better and remember it more clearly. This book is filled with helpful infograms, charts, and photos that are useful for anyone who learns visually, like myself.

Overall, “Wine: A Tasting Course” is the perfect purchase if you want to expand your wine knowledge in a fun and easy way. You can check out the book by clicking here to page through or purchase. I hope this review was helpful for all my wine-loving friends out there. It is a recommended buy from me to you, XOXO.

Any recommendations on other fun and helpful wine books?
