Safer Than Safe: Thieves and… SCIENCE! | Love & Oils & Humor

If you know me, (and you very well may not) you know two things:

I want our home to be as safe for our kids as possible, by reducing the amount of toxic sludge in and around their little bodies–AND–I don’t¬†peddle bull chips.


The second is so true it’s been a bone of contention at some point in almost all my relationships, if I’m being honest. Turns out, most folks like a little dishonesty buffer in their lives! Who knew? #ThingsImWorkingOn …

So, I’m incredibly stoked¬†to discover that when it comes to Thieves products, there is #TRUTH¬†in advertising. Turns out, the good Lord above DID grant us the ability to clean ourselves and our homes without poison! #Winning #PlantJuice

This lady, Kirsten, (below), has done some incredible sleuthing for the restCheerfullyimperfect.com_-683x1024 of us on her blog site, “Cheerfully Imperfect.”¬†¬†(And, she IS cheerful; oh, my)!

She goes through it ALL, y’all. The cleaner, the spray, the sanitizer, the laundry detergent, the dish detergent, the soap, the toothpaste, and on and on. Didn’t know there WERE that many Thieves products? Oh, my dear, there are. Check ’em out here.


Take a gander. She truly lays out the safety concerns one might have, thoroughly. Even folks who aren’t “oily” should look into Thieves products. The way these products can create a safe haven in the home–which we all crave–is incredible. #SmellsLikeChristmas


The detox can start right away with a whole Thieves kit. Swapping is easy! Gotta get some Thieves in your life (and crud out)? Give me a holler and/or try it out on your own with this info.


Longer Than… I Have Patience for Teen Drivers… Dan Folgerberg Version| Humor

In “News of the Dumbest Thing I’ve Seen in a While,” picture it: Kroger’s stoooopid parking lot, 7p.
Trying to go left from the stop sign next to the structure, appropriately. Stuck, because a girl who appears to be all of 16 in a crappy, boxy, little black something, is waiting on someone to back out of their (Driver) spot.
Mind you, there are at least 5 other spots she could go, but NO, her teenage behind would have to scoot a whole other 15-20 feet, max.
While I’m sitting there, rage building, (because Driver is taking her sweet, sweet time backing out… seemed to be struggling with the combination of her… well, she was just struggling with the seatbelt. Also, she just doesn’t care, with her 20 kids. I wouldn’t, either), I spot the bumper sticker on the back of Teenager’s car.
It says: Bumper to bumper, nut to nut, get off my a– you stupid sl–!
Now, I was about *thisclose* to rolling down my window and telling her to stop being a lazy slob, holding up the rest of humanity, lest she want to look and feel like Driver in 15 years, but I sniffed my Peace and Calming, cranked up Dan Folgerberg’s “Longer,” (don’t you DARE judge me–and yes, this whole thing was taking THAT long–also, you’re welcome for the link to this glorious bit of… glory), and glanced at Teenager’s face just long enough to catch my glorious, shining moment of schadenfreude…
As traffic was piling up behind us, people started honking, and her face turned beet red, her eyebrows raised in the middle–oh, yes, she was two seconds from crying. Little Miss “Get off my A–” was about to cry.
Besides the obvious, I find this hilarious because as a teenager, I would NEVER have had something like that on my car. WHY? Because my parents weren’t idiots! Duh. Also, because while I totally would have been honking at Driver (actual chutzpah), because I *was* an idiot, I wasn’t the kind that announced my foul, teenage stupidity on my bumper.
Also, I would have just parked (even after honking) when people started piling up.I did have these bumper stickers, that key chain, and that most hot-rockin’ car, except it was white:
ANYWAY, somebody in a Dodge finally backed out, she never got her spot, and I hope she burst into tears. There, I said it.
Oh, and if you know this little genius, smack her and pray for her for me. She needs both verbs desperately.

I stole this one from Glennon Doyle Melton’s Instagram account. Having a time of tremendous time of blessing in our home currently, and trying to remember that we got here because we (almost) always tried to do the right thing. 

And, now that we’re in the catbird seat, so to speak, we need to keep doing what’s right and kind–not what we’d like to do as a ‘fair’ return on the past treatment of others toward us.
