DIY essential oil bath jellies:
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Ingredients:
Natural coloring
An essential oil blend from our 5 splashy summer ideas below
Silicone molds
2 packets unsweetened, unflavored gelatin
1 cup distilled water
1 cup unscented liquid soap
Isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle
Directions:
Whip the water and gelatin in a heat-safe bowl or pot and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Take off the heat and add the liquid soap. Stir until incorporated.
Add 5-10 drops of natural coloring.

Add 10-12 drops of essential oil. Try one of our cheerful blend ideas below!
Pour the mixture into silicon molds.
If bubbles form on the top of the liquid, spray with isopropyl alcohol to smooth the surface.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
Add water and lather up!
Store jellies in the refrigerator when not in use to prevent them from melting and losing their shape.

Mi Recycle Blanket

I wrote a blog last April 5th when I first started my business “Mi Recycled Blanket” and thought I would bring it back today incase you did not read it and Spring is not to far away so perhaps when the spring cleaning bug strikes you may keep me in mind.

I hope you find it interesting and if anything maybe get you thinking on what can be done for those in our society that seem to be over looked.

blanket

I think we have all heard of the company “TOMS”. They are a company that saw a need and did something. I always had great respect for this business concept. With this in mind I have been making blankets out of recycled material giving them away and enjoying helping keep others warm.
I see all the hurting and cold people who seem to be forgotten. My heart was compelled to do something, so I came up with this idea of taking old sweaters that will end up in a landfill or a thrift store and refurbishing them into blankets that are sold. I sell one and give one away every time.
Instead of having sweaters just sit in the closet or storage because you don’t know what to do with them. I take the sweaters of you or your loved ones, whether out grown, out used or perhaps even of loved ones that pass away.
I make a blanket for you to keep in place of the sweaters clogging up your closet or I take the donated sweaters to make a blanket to give away.
My prices are fair and I enjoy doing this for you. Keep in mind at the same time I make a blanket out of your sweater I make one out of sweaters that have been donated so I can give them away to someone in need.
I ask you to think when you do your spring cleaning. If you have sweaters that you would like to donate or would like to pay me to turn them into a blanket keep me in mind not only does this clear out the clutter but will help someone less fortunate than you.
“Mi Recycled Blanket” is the name of my new business and no it is not miss spelled but it’s named after my grandson Milo who helped inspired me.
My motto for this business
“Give unto them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for morning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness,”
Isaiah 61: 3a

Faith

Psalm 30: 9-12 ” What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? Hear, Lord and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help. You have turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing you praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.”

I start my first blog with this passage because I am proclaiming Gods Faithfulness

We have all seen or heard of the flying trapeze, the performer jumps from a platform with the trapeze swinging back and forth allowing gravity to work in their favor but if they don’t take that next step in faith to complete this beautiful dance they will just swing back and forth not getting any place and eventually gravity wont be in their favor.

Life is like this, we must move through our fear and have faith in order to take the next step that will lead our life to the next platform. I know that with God’s mercy and faithfulness I can move through the scary places so I can move on to the better things God has for me. I need Him to complete my dance, if I step out in faith I know my wailing will turn to joy and I can live life in true joy.  I can just be me and what a free wonderful feeling it is!
