Just a Spoonful of Sugar
August 12th, 2019 6:12 pm
"Mom, can I have this?"
"Dad, I want candy!"
"Can we get a candy bar, too?"

If these phrases are something you hear on a regular basis when at the store, you are not alone. Candy is always conveniently placed for little wandering eyes to see and, inevitably, want. And what adult hasn't indulged a young one by buying them a candy bar on the way out the door? They often deserve it, after all. But how much sugar is too much for one day? And how much sugar is in that candy bar your little one is munching on right before bed?

Directions: In small spray bottle, pour 1/3c of Witch Hazel. Add 5 drops each of lavender, citronella, and lemongrass essential oils. Shake and spray! (WARNING: Highly concentrated essential oils can be irritating to skin, especailly for little ones, so try spraying your clothes instead of your skin.)

Alternative: Do you grow fresh lavender in your home garden? Try...
