- about two or three citrus wedge (I prefer to use oranges)
- peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus leaves
- dried lavender
- tea tree oil
- peppermint castile soap, or if you have peppermint oil on hand that would work too
It is really quite simple. Place all ingredients in the water and put on a low simmer until it is almost to a boil. Place in a mug or bowl and cover your head with a towel or blanket.... now breeeeathe in.... much better! It really works like a charm. Bottle it up and save it for later in the refrigerator (it is best between 1-4 days).

And on another note - my man moved to LA on new years day. Quite a change for the new year, huh? 2012 was a quiet, comfortable, ordinary year. It was a good one, but I am exited for what the future holds. Lots of exciting things are in store for 2013. I already miss him a lot but I am excited for the opportunities their band has been given (mostly thanks to Fergie... yes the Fergalicious Fergie). Funny how life works.
well to begin, I moved into a quaint victorian apartment.
effie's favorite place to sleep. poor thing had a hard time adjusting at first, but I think she's doing just fine now, and she has a new kitty housemate too!
I take walks as often as possible now, being so close to my favorite coffee shops, and I always make sure to make a little bouquet on the way. Phil warns me that I might look like a crazy to the neighbors if I keep collecting foliage on my walk, but I can't help it!
a few Christmas presents
I hope everyone of you had a joyful, relaxing holiday!
