It’s Here!

After what seems like an eternity, but was really just a week, my package has arrived! The very nice Purolator man dropped it off this morning after the little one and I got home from the chiropractor. The “Basic Starter Kit” portion is on back order, so I have yet to receive my sample packets and some other literature, but the Everyday Oils and Dewdrop diffuser have arrived. As I was opening it I took about a million photos to show you guys what everything looks like.

So here, in all its glory, is my starter kit! (Please excuse my very worn table)

It was hard to make myself wait and take pictures as I un-boxed everything. I am going to post individual pictures of the oils, and for the blends I will list the components. I will get into uses another day.

Here are the singles:

I have since plugged in and filled the diffuser. I think perhaps for our first use I went a little heavy-handed on the drops of essential oil (although I went with the lesser number of drops recommended in the manual). Our living room is quite aromatic with the smell of lavender, and I am happy to say that, whether aided by the oil or not, both the dog and the baby are having a nice nap. The cat has disappeared, which I am glad of, as I have my suspicions that it may not be entirely safe for her.

I am excited to start making some of the products on my list, but that’s for another day!
