In my quest to become more green around my house I came across a tutorial for home made household cleaning wipes. Not only is it all natural but it reduces your paper waste. It’s a win win!
What you need:
Disinfecting essential oils
Empty Baby wipes container (or even an old pencil box will do)
You can change the essential oil blend of the formulas above as you like, but the following list of essential oils are known to be highly antiseptic. (Interestingly, many of the most germ-killing plants are also used as spices in cooking.) I prefer the scent of peppermint lavender myself.
Cinnamon – cozy, comforting
Clove Bud Essential Oil.
– spicy, warming
Lavender Essential Oil.
– relaxing, soothing
Rosemary – invigorating
Thyme – refreshing, purifying, herbal, peppery
Balsam pine – purifying, vitality-promoting
Eucalyptus essential oil
Sweet orange essential oil
Cut the t-shirt into squares that will fit into your box.
Fill a dish with 2 cups of white vinegar and 30-50 drops of your essential oil scent (total not of each scent)
Soak each square, wring it out and fold it to fit into the container until it is full.
You can wash and re-use your squares over and over.
I just can’t get enough of goats lately. They are everywhere! Cute adorable goats doing cute adorable things. In the video below it is a tiny goat using a very large pig as a play thing. Patient Pig.
I have to admit I am not a big Tweeter except for during Big Brother season. There are too many people, too many tweets, celebrities selling stuff and just idiots. This Twitter account though is just delightful. An 18 year old in the UK posts pictures of things balanced on his grandmother’s head. She must really love her grandson to do this for him on a regular basis.
I just can’t get enough of these post-dental surgery videos. This poor girl thinks her wisdom teeth are dead and apologizes to them through plenty of tears.
Why am I posting about goats in a tree? Because I can.
What does the inventor of those pink lawn flamingos wear each day? Whatever his wife is wearing of course! 32/36 years of matching to be exact for Don and Nancy Featherstone. After 32 years they have over 600 matching outfits. Do the math and see how long they can go without wearing the same outfit twice. Imagine the pile of laundry that can accumulate!
I love Mr. RealiT but no way do I want to match him every day of my life. Take a look at that picture… the clothes are uhm… interesting. There has to be a better way to show the world that you are together. Oh wait, maybe they could wear wedding rings or hold hands… just a thought.
Would you wear matching outfits with our spouse?
Today is the full “pink” moon but don’t expect it to appear pink… it won’t be. There is also a partial eclipse but for those of us in the western hemisphere we won’t see that either.
The full moon however brings a special energy to the planet. We all know the crazies come out on a full moon. It is said you can feel the full moon energy for several days before and after the full moon.
Some see the full moon as an opportunity to start anew. Sort of like having a new year every few weeks. It is a good time to set your intentions and let go of baggage you have been holding on to.
Setting an intention is stating out loud, in your mind or on paper what you would like to create in your life. Happiness, health, abundance… your choices are unlimited.
If you happen to have crystals around now is a good time to set them out for a recharge and a cleansing of energy. Be careful if your area is expecting rain the water can actually ruin some crystals.
There are many different ceremonies and rituals done all over the world on a full moon. Fires, chants, prayers, parties, singing and so on. Some people believe celebrating a full moon means you are a witch, a heathen or against God and that is not true. What better way to celebrate God than to enjoy his creations?
Celebrate our differences. Some people pray in a church, some people pray outside and some people don’t pray at all or in their own way. That’s what makes life beautiful, our differences. Yet we are all connected to each other as we live on planet earth.
For those of you who are interested here is a video explaining energy and how to do a full moon manifestation ritual. If you are not interested that’s OK too!
