Spark Naturals Essential Oils

For the past 2 years I have been using essential oils in my home and for my family.  Today I want to share a newer oil company that I have recently become affiliated with.   First off I have to tell you that I am a believer in pure essential oils.  Spark Naturals sells pharmagrade oils.

This is from their website:
Spark Naturals  products are Certified Pure PharmaGrade – CPPG – a physical standard ensuring our products are of the appropriate identity, strength, quality, purity, and consistency standards used internationally for quality and purity. Our raw materials are tested and authenticated to be of pharmaceutical grade purity. Spark Naturals likes to deal with facts; our goal is to educate the public about health issues, offer serious alternatives and provide luxury products backed by facts – not advertising or business opportunity ploys or gimmicks.  We offer CPPG™ products – luxury products intelligently priced.  CPPG™ is our quality commitment – we will offer only those products for which we can ensure our commitment to true quality – our commitment to luxury, intelligently priced.

I heard about Spark Naturals soon after they launched and bought a few of their oils to try to see how they compared with the ones I have been using.  I have to admit that they are wonderful!

Right now they are having a back to school sale on 2 very popular blends of oils plus you receive 2 roller bottles for only $33.00!  It comes in a wonderful tin so you will always know where your oil is at.
Jeddy's Blend is made up of :Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Ylang, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Vetiver, Patchouli & Fractionated Coconut Oil.
It is a blend for those with anxiety, ADD or ADHD.  I have been using it when I feel overwhelmed.  Love it!

The blend, Shield contains the oils:  Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary.
It is an oil to help ward off germs, colds, etc.  It helps protect.  I use this oil almost every day by rubbing a couple of drops on the bottom of my feet.  You just don't know when you are going to come in contact with someone who is sick and none of us want to be sick, do we?!

You can use either oil blend topically or aromatically.  

You can click here to see the other oils and products Spark Naturals sells.  If you do want to buy anything please feel free to use my discount: dotsanddoodles.  It will get you 10% off your purchase!  You can use the code over and over.  

If you haven't tried essential oils but have been curious about them or if you want to try an affordable, good quality oil, please consider Spark Naturals.  I think you will like them!

Knock Knock Knock Knock!

Anyone still out there?!!!!
It has been a long time in "blogland" time of me posting a new post here!

I just haven't been sewing much this summer so the blog has been on the back burner for some time now.

Plus summer is just busy here in Wyoming!  Everyone who lives here knows how short the summers are.  You try to get outside every chance you have before the cold comes again.  This summer has been full of gardening (not going too good this year), to Big Birthday trips, to family reunions.

I did get a bit of sewing in the last part of July.  These darling babies are my grandkids.  The littlest one is missing in these pics since he doesn't walk yet.  Let me tell you....trying to get 6 kids, 6 and under, to cooperate for pictures was exhausting.  First picture the photographer took, the baby did a face plant on the concrete and cried for the next hour and a half.  The next child, 15 months, just kept getting up and walking off every time you sat her down.  Sigh.  Like I said....exhausting.

I had been wanting to make some clothes for the girls for awhile now so figured this would be the time to do it.  After quilting for so many years, it was hard to come back to sewing clothing!  Just reading a pattern was confusing to me at times.  I found a couple of cute patterns on etsy for the tops and used a pattern I already had for the capris/bloomers.  The fabric is from an Adornit line called Nested Owls that I picked up at the Utah Shop Hop in June.  I love it!

Ahhhhhh......I already miss these munchkins!
