Ahhhh, February 14. A day for love. A day for sweetness. A day for affection.
Are you at a loss of what to get for your lovely love? I have some ideas.
I love hearts. I make them all year long. Hearts with wings, flaming hearts, hearts with leaping rabbits, hearts with birds, hearts with pockets for cats to hide in, American Flag hearts…
So many to choose from:
These are available at my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RobinChladDesigns?section_id=6939494&ref=shopsection_leftnav_4
As I announced in my blog back in January, I am enamored with Essential Oils and not just any essential oils. I love Young Living (YL) Essential Oils (EO’s) because they are therapeutic grade, they are healing and soothing.
I find the back story to this company fascinating YL is a grass roots company and the oils are pure. The overseeing of production from seed to seal is with utmost care.
How did I get into YL EO’s ?
It started with my massage therapist 3 years ago. She would use them on my back, a massage called Rain Drop Therapy. It felt so wonderful but she refused to take the credit. Instead, she insisted that it was the oils doing the work. She called them “living oils”. It was a little earthy but whatever, I thought.
I didn’t really fall in love with them until I started following Dr. Joshua Axe, a functional doctor who specializes in leaky gut issues. He really believes in them and encourages his followers to use them everyday.
They can be ingested, used topical or difussed in your home or office. I use them for allergies, RA and back issues. I use oils like Frankinsence, Thieves, Peppermint and Lavender. I had a terrible bout of crud in January and my oils came in handy. I never had to take antibiotics and that was a success in itself. But I used them in place of Otc (over the counter) drugs. And during this time of using them on a daily basis I have noticed my hormones are back in balance. If you want to know more, please contact me. I will be happy to share with you what I have learned. I am a distributor.
So why am I bringing this all up?
I designed some mini bowls a while back to mix my oils in to have on my bathroom counter ready to dip into when washing my face, or after bath moisturizer.
I also use the mini bowls for holding pink salt for seasoning at the kitchen counter. I find these little bowls very useful not only for personal use but also for entertaining. For those of you who follow cooking shows, you might have noticed little bowls the chefs use for their herbs, rubs and spices.
You can also use the bowls for sushi ginger sauce at your guest’s place setting. Or for olive oil if you plan to serve an Italian dinner for Valentines.
These little bowls come in very handy. They are made of kiln fired ceramic, with food safe glazes. EO’s and bowls would make a wonderful Valentine gift for your special person.
More Valentine gift ideas. Hearts and Essential Oils. Ring catcher or a wall decoration.
These are special handmade gifts and original designs
