EssentialOilsRock

Essential Oils are quite the rage right now.  They are AMAZING, and I do not dispute that..  The people pushing them, however, can be a little…um….over the top. Have you noticed?

Anyone Out There?

I haven’t posted since January, which in bloggy land is an ETERNITY.  I wonder if anyone even checks anymore? I’m feeling sad today.  I had what I thought was a great job and today I lost it.  It had been coming.  I had seen the signs.  But I am not that person…the one that loses […]
