Winter Cold Tip

Four Thieves is a must have in your medicine cabinet. I diffuse it in our house and put it on our feet, and have seen a significant decrease in colds in our home and in recovery time from any illness. 

This link takes you to the one I purchase on Amazon.

The first time I smelled Four Thieves essential oil blend, I was transported to my dad’s dental office because it smells exactly like what he would swab in people’s mouths (often said to be the dirtiest place on our bodies). Well it turns out I was right! Every company’s Four Thieves is slightly different, but they all have clove, cinnamon and a citrus oil in them.
It’s called four thieves because it was used by thieves who pillaged graves during the Bubonic Plague and (apparently) protected then from said plague!

There are lots of brands on Amazon, but this is the one I purchase.

The Adventures of Science Mom: fun with magnets

Came across this cool post when I was seeking to confirm that fishing for dropped batteries behind my washing machine with a magnet was safe (it is). My 5yo and I had a lot of fun doing it. Maybe I’ll have to drop some more batteries back there but on purpose this time! Be a spark!

By the way, this great $20 magnet kit has become my go-to birthday party gift this year. I buy 2 or 3 at a time so I have them on hand.
