[brownie office]

I recently moved into my new office in the White House and am thrilled with the results! My mom suggested making this office my ‘oasis’ in hopes it would make coming to work more enjoyable ūüėČ She was right – the office came out beautiful! Dark taupe walls, chocolate curtains, spa-like smells/sounds along with accessories from Home Goods.

 
 
 
 
 
 

[oil names and uses]

A girlfriend initially¬†introduced me to the Young Living essential oils.¬†At first, I was skeptic thinking these “magical oils” were overly priced and wouldn’t work. As a migraine sufferer, my mom finally put her foot down and secretly ordered me Peppermint & M-Grain. To put it lightly, I am loving them – so much that I became a member.¬†I¬†ordered the premium starter kit which included a home diffuser. A couple months later and¬†I’ve gravitated towards a few favorites (Peppermint, Lemon, M-Grain & Purification), but I wanted to do some of my own research to find out how I can use the other oils I’m currently¬†barely looking at.
