Essential Oil Perfume

Summer is here and with it brings warmer nights and… stinky sweat? Ew. Don’t get me wrong, I am a strong advocate for showers and deodorant. But what if you want to smell noticeably good?

Here is my dilemma. I love the smell of perfume, but hate the ingredients in them. According to an eBay article, some perfumes may not disclose all the ingredients but instead just use the word fragrance. Usually all the ingredients used to make this fragrance are synthetic, and if you live in the US the FDA does not check if these synthetic ingredients are safe before they hit stores…

I know, I know. I sound paranoid. But since coming to college I have tried to be more conscious of what I use on my body and in my living space so my body, my spirit, and the earth can be cleaner. I believe that using essential oils to make perfume can help me and the earth feel (and smell) better!

Not only are many essential oils labeled as organic or natural, but it is much easier to access information on these types of products on websites like www.fda.gov. Essential oils can also be used as alternative medicine! I use lavender and peppermint oil often for headaches and congestion.

While I haven’t made essential oil perfume yet, I have made a guide for when I do! It has all the information you need in order to make a scent perfect for you!

FINALLY FINISHED FINALS & STARTING SUMMER

Hello Friends!

Many of you probably do not know, but I am a university student in the US. And as of today I am FINISHED WITH SPRING CLASSES. Thank the Lord! Hallelujah! YAY!

I had exams until last Tuesday which were difficult and strenuous. The most difficult exam for me was my advanced Spanish grammar exam. I had to explain different grammar definitions in Spanish as well as use different grammar techniques. I think the definitions were the hardest part…

I had a quick break on Wednesday, but on Thursday and Friday I was with my family celebrating my sister! Thursday my sister graduated from college! YAY! And on Friday she was commissioned into the military! DOUBLE YAY! I am a very proud sister and excited to see what the next chapter of her life brings!

Now that the spring is over, the summer is starting. I will continue working as a tutor for the first six weeks of summer before going to Chile for a six week internship! YAY! I may also be starting a job as a writer at my university’s newspaper. DOUBLE YAY!

Despite the excitement that is coming up I am more determined than ever to devote time to blogging. I want to become more active by posting more often, maybe take part in a challenge, participate in awards, and reach out and get to know more of the blogging community!

Has anything exciting happened to anyone as of late? Is anyone looking forward to exciting things to come? Do you have any ideas on how else I can become more involved??? Please comment below and help me explore the blogging world!
