How to Order My Favorite Essential Oils

Ok, OK….I get it!!!  This whole ‘essential oil thing’ can be a bit overwhelming at first.  With that in mind, I created a beginner’s guide for ordering dōTERRA essential oils.  It really is quite simple once you get started and the benefits…well, there just isn’t enough space or time for me to expound on all of the benefits in this post.   I will say, dōTERRA essential oils are having a positive impact on me and mine which is what Crazy Good Creations is all about so give it a go~

View the dōTERRA essential oil website.  Learn about essential oils, shop for and order dōTERRA products, learn about the company and its policies…it’s all right  here.

A new day…a new adventure!!!

Those of you who have been following my antics over the past few years know I am on a journey of natural health and healing.  I will try any and everything prior to using prescribed medications.  In fact, I have not seen a medical doctor since 2010.  Yes, you read that correctly!  So…I must be doing something right, huh?

One of my serious explorations has been with essential oils and, I have to admit, I LOVE THEM!  (In fact, I may need to go to EOA – Essential Oils Anonymous!)

  • When I clean with them they make me happy and I have never really gotten happy when I cleaned before!  Cleaning Products - Large version
  • When I use them for health issues (on myself, as well as my family members) I have seen surprisingly good results and, in most cases, AMAZING results!

  • I believe that using them on my Golden Retrievers has kept them out of the vet’s office for years!!!Pets

Little did I know that this love of oils would lead to me sharing my findings with anyone who would lend an ear but I am just that way!  When I find something that works, is easy to get and is cost effective I want to shout it from the mountaintops…and…so I have!  My adult children use oils, my Mother uses oils, my neighbors use oils and all because of little old me!  I am proud of that – really proud of that! So…

Not too long ago I started experimenting with different brands of oils because I wanted to take it up a notch and be able to ingest them as needed.  Now you CANNOT do that with just any old oil…the oils need to be CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) before you can ingest them.  That quest lead me to doTERRA…

Yes, doTERRA, and now there is no turning back.  Whether you have been using oils for years or are toying with the idea…start here:  Don’t waste your time, $ or health on poor quality oils.  It makes a HUGE difference!

There are many good oils out there but, in my humble opinion, none compare to doTERRA!  Start small if you need to but do yourself, your family, pets and friends a BIG favor and JUST START!!!  Maybe you should give yourself a Christmas gift…you know, to you from you…who hasn’t done that on occasion???

Have questions?  I am here to help and if I don’t know the answer to your question we will find someone who does!

Join me today on a quest of wonderful health naturally.  And now I must go because Frank is calling my name…that is…Frankincense, of course!;)

Planting Potatoes on Top of the Ground

Planting Potatoes on Top of the Ground

Well…finally!  A beautiful spring-like day and I was chomping at the bit to get outside and get started doing something…anything in my little garden on the front lawn!crazygoodcreations.comIt really was the perfect day for planting my Yukon Gold and Red Pontiac potatoes – weather-wise AND Mr. Almanac-wise.   Yep, Mr. Almanac said it was a good day to plant root crops!  It also seemed like the perfect time to try a ‘crazy good creation’…a DIY potato tower.  There are lots of ways/opinions on how to do it – yep, read quite a few and then decided what made sense to me, rolled up my sleeves and…

IMG_3430You gotta know that I am going to use a till-less method…don’t own a tiller and am just not that fond of digging so I LOVE planting on top of the ground!

I used some wire we had stashed to build a couple of rectangular cages – no exact measurements here, I just built them in the corners on the side of my garden.  I used the Mister’s tie wraps (have I told you lately that he LOVES those things???) to secure my newly formed cage to the garden’s rabbit fence.  Sounds simple enough, right? Sure was – well, everything except ME cutting and bending that stinking wire…geeeezzzeee~  Anyhow….

Once I got my cage/tower (whatever you choose to call it) formed, I put down a thick layer of newspaper or cardboard and SOAKED it thoroughly!!!

Next, I added hay and pushed it to the sides of the cage to keep the peat moss from falling out of the sides.

IMG_3431I added a layer of peat moss next…I am guessing about three inches and wet it.  Next I added my potatoes.  As you can see, mine are fairly close together.  If you have been following my posts you know that I garden on my front lawn in a very small space so I ‘overpopulate’ what I plant to get greater yields.  Hey, it works for me~

IMG_3432 - Version 2Finally, I covered the potatoes with peat moss, watered them and moved on to build my second cage/tower.  So exciting!

I will keep you updated on their progress so you can see, along with me, whether this method works or not!  Based on my research ( and ya gotta know I researched the heck out of it) it does, in fact, work for most folks.  I certainly hope it works for me ’cause this Southern girl LOVES her taters…especially when she has grown them herself!

Well y’all, the sun is shining and times a’wastin’…I have got to get outside and ‘play’ some more today.  I hope you all are able to do the same!  Happy Saturday and happy planting!!!
