Art Class with the Kiddos

We kicked off our homeschooling year with an acrylic painting session on sunflowers. It was the kids’ first time painting with (my) acrylic paints. We had planted sunflowers, on purpose and by accident, in our garden and in the chicken run, so we have plenty of inspiration! After a brief description of how acrylic paints work and a little demo by mom, the kids took off on their own! I think they did a great job!

Best Essential Oils to Help Ward Off Bugs & Ticks

Rocky Mountain Oils posted an article about the best oils to use to help combat a variety of pesty bugs and ticks. We have Bug Off as well as a variety of other oils such as geranium and thyme that I have mixed in a spray bottle. The kids like it if I add a little bit of vanilla as well. So far so good! Check out their website here.

Bugs, Away!

 

Rocky Mountain Oils – Kids Kits

I’ve recently been drawn to Rocky Mountain Oils after reading up on the company itself, and reading some research done by folks who spent their time researching EO companies, using the same kind of criteria I would have if I had the time and energy to do so! In the end, it seems that RMO and I will be a good match. With that said, I have just ordered a new diffuser for our home, and their “Bug Off” EO for the kids. I also just noticed they have a Kid’s Kit of several oils diluted properly for use in a roller ball dispenser on children, and it’s on sale right now…
