Argentinan Pinot Gris

The back label reads “A harsh and extreme climate at the foot of the impressive Cordillera Mountains, a high altitude and rocky volcanic ground (black rocks), this is our terrior. The wines that come from this region are full-bodied yet smooth, intense and varied; typical considering their grape variety. They are very pleasurable wines.”

This is 100% pinot gris, the first of its kind to be planted in Argentina. It ripened early and picked later than usual. It smells of citrus and berries. I love the fresh taste and crisp finish. And don’t even get me started on the color!!! SO PRETTY.

Argentinian Torrentos

This is a beautiful, intense yellow-white wine. It is filled with heavy floral flavors and bright citrus aromas. The taste is dry, unoaked, and oh-so yummy. It is on the heavier bodied side with a long-lasting finish. It comes from Mendoza, Argentina, known for high temps during the day and very low at night, which retains acidity within the wine.

This was my first Torrentos and most certainly won’t be my last, XOXO!

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!
