Dragonfly Fairy


I was sorting through pictures recently -since my laptop has decided that it’s pretty much at full capacity!- and came across those rather surreal dragonfly pictures that I absolutely adore!
I was waiting for my daughter in the high school car line last year when I noticed weird shadows on my dashboard. I looked up and saw there was a pretty red dragonfly hanging out on my car antenna! I quickly snapped pics with my iPhone -and through my not-so-clean windshield- before she got a chance to fly away…


She looked so much like a little red fairy kissing her lover that I had to crop the pics to take away most of the antenna… ♥️ Still amazed at my luck to have caught this magical moment…

Distance Reiki

I love REIKI! What I love even more is sharing it with others. 🙂🙏🏻✨ I have decided to start a monthly distance Reiki send-off. The principle is simple: if you want to be a recipient of distance Reiki, simply write your name in the comments section (or through private message if you’d like).
Saturday, MARCH 7TH, I will go to the park, connect with nature, and send everyone some Universal Life Force (Qi). Because I like little life rituals, I will write the names on little pieces of tissue paper folded as little boats and release them in a lake afterwards (from what I have researched, tissue paper should be safe for wildlife, and it is highly biodegradable.).
Love and Light. 🙏🏻💖✨

Review: by Humankind Mouthwash

One of my goals has been to reduce plastic waste, and I am always looking for natural products for beauty or cleaning, so I was intrigued when I discovered this mouthwash that comes in the form of little effervescent tablets.

I love it! It’s so nice to have something that doesn’t burn your mouth while still giving you that “clean feeling”! 🙂 And it comes in multiple flavors…

3 rules for happy Tulips

 
 

Spring is almost here and tulips are showing up everywhere… If you enjoy them, following these 3 rules will ensure they look their best and last as long as possible…

1- Do not fill the vase with water. Tulips fare better with only their tips in water, so keep the water level to between 1 and 2 inches (Of course remember to check every now and then and add water if the level gets too low.). If I remember correctly, this helps the tulips stay upright. A lot of water will cause “drunk” tulips that bend down out of the vase…

2- Add some copper coins (pennies) in the vase. This will ensure that your tulips stay somewhat closed (as on my pictures), instead of opening up like daisies with the heat.

3- Pierce a little hole through the stem with a needle, right under the head. This will allow any air bubble trapped in the stem to escape so the flower head can receive the nourishment it needs. (that also helps with roses).

“Namaste” Aromatherapy diffuser blend

I think this might be my current favorite blend 😍, and it’s been the case for at least 6 months or more, since I came up with it. It’s the one I reach for when I am feeling out of sort… 
It’s mellow and not overly floral, and the Yuzu keeps it fresh. It’s uplifting, calming and grounding. 

“Orange Blossoms” Aromatherapy diffuser blend

This blend was one of my first experiments,  and it’s still among my favorites, and often my go-to when I need to relax or for a gentle pick-me-up, as those oils are both calming and uplifting. It’s like comfort food for the soul!… ❤️
I live in Florida and I’m in love with the Orange Blossoms’ smell the evening winds carry in February, so I wanted to recreate that smell! The 1st time I diffused it, my then-husband stepped out on the patio and asked if the lemon tree was in bloom because of the smell. Turns out the poor Lemon tree was half dead, and what he could smell was the diffuser blend I had going on in my room with the window open! That comforted me on the idea that I had nailed it! Lol…
I love it so much that I am thinking about making it into a solid perfume (with mango butter, bee’s wax and jojoba oil…)  I’m really into Vanilla and it seems to appear in almost all of my blends, but if you’re not a fan or don’t like sweet things, use only one drop of it.
I hope you enjoy it! … 🌸🍊
