Every year on July 4th, most of us in the United States celebrate Independence Day and each year I tend to muse about the true meaning of this important day in our history. And no, it is not about barbeques, kids games, and beer drinking.
That said, this year I take a different approach and offer up my own set of fireworks in the form of a “Let the Sparks Fly” giveaway. What sparks are flying? An Essential 4-Pack Kit of essential oils from Spark Naturals plus a Fizzy Bath Bomb that will allow you to soak away the day in utter bliss.
Entering this giveaway is really easy and there is no requirement other than to submit your entry.
The “Let the Sparks Fly” Giveaway
The winner of this giveaway will win two prizes. The first is an Essential 4-Pack Kit including Lavender, Peppermint, Melaleuca (Tea Tree), and Lemon essential oils. This is one of the go-to kits I recommend to all newbie EO users. What I like about this kit is that all you need to do is add a bottle of Rosemary essential oil and you have everything you need to make up some of my Awesome Miracle Healing Salve (recipe here).
But there is more. The winner will also receive a super fragrant, super-emollient Spark Naturals bath bomb. Drop a fizzy bath bomb into the tub and pamper yourself with skin softening coconut oil and essentials oils.
Everyone gets a free entry in this giveaway and social media is not required. In my usual style, there are some bonus entries for you as well.
Note: This giveaway runs through July 9th and is open to everyone with a US mailing address. The winner will be selected at random will be contacted by email. If the prize is not claimed with 48 hours, an alternate will be selected.
A Word About My Favorite Essential Oils
Since the beginning of 2019, I have struggled with the fact that I have primarily been using essential oils from a single company. On many levels, it was time for a change.
Alas, this was easier said than done since I needed to assess the performance of various EOs in my tried and true salve and roller ball formulas. In addition, I wanted to find a budget-friendly company that offered 100% free shipping all of the time.
My first successful tests have been with essential oils from Plant Therapy. This was a logical choice since Plant Therapy has always been my preferred source for carrier oils such as Fractionated Coconut oil and Jojoba oil. They carry a huge variety of EOs and are available to purchase directly both on the Plant Therapy website and on Amazon. As a bonus, their web site posts test results individually by oil along with the corresponding batch number. This assures me that the oils are not fake.
While there are many excellent EO companies, I am happy with my choice and hope you will check them out. Wherever you decide to purchase your oils, let your nose guide you. If your essential oil smells like paint thinner, return it. Good oils smell nice.
