He is LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Look to Him for the ALL the answers. He will guide us, if we'll let Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Essential Oils to the Rescue!

Yesterday something really cool happened....well, um....it wasn't a good thing...but we found out something really interesting, cool, and informational!

I took my son, Caleb to his K-3 Fun class that meets 2x a month.  He absolutely loves it and this was the first day of the semester.  

When we arrived, there was an unmistakeably yucky smell in the building.  I later learned that the vacuum cleaner had blown it's belt.  You know that smell, right?  Well, there was a building full of K-3 graders and parents and it was downright icky.  The teacher asked me if I could find some febreeze or something to try and counteract the smell.  

I remembered that essential oils will actually break down the molecules of the odor and send it on its way.  So, I went to the van to see what I had with me.  My purse was full of roller bottles, so I knew those wouldn't work.  And, then it hit me....I had a couple spray bottles of my Sonshine Hand Sanitizer.  So, I grabbed them and sent my daughter to one area of the building and I went to the other (class had already started by then) and I was trying to be as inconspicuous as possible spraying this in each room. I left a bottle with one of the helpers and we left.

2 hours later, when we returned there was no evidence whatsoever of the odor.  His teacher even mentioned that some who had come in after I left were remarking at how GOOD the building smelled!
