Do you change your essential oil diffuser blend based on the season, for certain health goals, or just to release a scent you enjoy? I do a little mix of all. I have some things that are seasonal, some for health, my personal favorites, and some blends I think help my kids when we’re doing homeschool. (Those are especially important to me!) Today, I bring you the recipe for a refreshing diffuser blend, which is a great way to start the New Year.
New Year Refresh Diffuser Blend
2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
2 drops Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil
8 drop Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend
Add water to the fill line in your diffuser, then drop in your oils and turn on. The scents will fill the air soon and you will be refreshed! My diffuser runs for about 6 hours, but if you have a smaller diffuser, you can half this recipe.
I use Young Living Essential Oils. So far, I’ve had a great experience with the product and company. I’ve seen real results from using these oils with my family, and I believe they are an excellent quality, pure oil. I worry about grocery store oils being watered down, and I don’t feel the need to worry about my YLEOs.
If you are local to me, I am happy to order essential oils and oil infused products for you, or set up your own account for direct shipping to you here:
2020 has brought many challenges, one of which being a lack of get-togethers. One of my favorite events is always the Christmas Cookie Exchange. When I thought up this idea, to do it virtually, I didn’t know if it would work or not. So many people enjoyed when I shared my Snowball Cookie recipe, however, that I decided to go ahead and give it a try. I posted in my VIP Group that I wanted to host a Virtual Cookie Exchange, and I got a few submissions back in, so I’m excited to bring you my first Virtual Cookie Exchange Booklet! I hope you find something you love here, and that it blesses your family and anyone with whom you share your cookies!
To print this PDF as a booklet, you’ll need to print full page, horizontal, and (very important) set your printer to print front & back. Printing this way will only take 3 pieces of paper, and you’ll have a nice booklet once you fold the paper in half. Add staples down the left side, and use some cute washi tape to cover the staple points.
I’m not a recipe blog, so I won’t make you wade through a long story to get to the recipe! HA! 😉
You may be able to print that graphic. If not, I’ll add the text below.
Sue Ellen’s Snowball Cookies
1 cup butter, softened (I usually use salted for everything)
1/2 cup powdered sugar + more for rolling
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400*. Combine butter, sugar and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor or stand mixer. Add flour and salt. Pulse until dough forms. Shape dough into walnut-sized balls. Place the dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake until set, about 9 minutes. Do not brown! Roll warm cookies in the remaining powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container. To freeze, layer the cookies between sheets of parchment or wax paper.
This year (December 2020), I am excited that I can offer a couple of Snowman Flexi-Clips to wear while making your Snowball Cookies!
The Frosty Flip is a reversible Flexi-type clip! It’s quite clever how the bead pattern on this one makes this adorable snowman!
We also have this month’s Flexi-of-the-Month, Frostine, with an adorable snowman centerpiece! Clear crystal and pearl white accent beads finish off this beauty.
