A new year...a new blog strategy!

I have decided to try something new this year. I’m going to share blogs with you that I like from other writers each month. There are so many good ones that I enjoy and I think you will, too!

Our blog this month is from Young Living. If you’re like me, sometimes January can be a bit of a let-down. The holidays are over, we’re trying to lose those pounds we gained, the weather may be cold, and those bills from December come in - ACK! Try a few of these blends in your diffuser to escape to another time and place! (I especially liked the ones for Honolulu and Paris.) Enjoy!

Destination everywhere: Diffuser blends for 7 cities

If you’re saving up for your next vacation, have an incurable case of cabin fever, or are simply someone who loves to jet from country to country whenever you can, you know that reaching your destination when you want isn’t always doable. We crafted these essential oil blends for your diffuser to aromatically transport you around the world.
The following blends are based on 10 drops per diffuser; be sure to modify according to your individual diffuser’s drop recommendation.
