Red, Hot & Holy

Red Hot & Holy GR{Essentially Saturday}

One of the things I love about essential oils is the variety of ways you can use them: from direct palm inhalation, to drops in a diffuser that fill a room, to combining with carrier oils for massaging onto the skin.

I also felt surprised that it was happening, as he had seemed so secretive. When I used to catch glimpses of that wimpy sort of dad on Reality TV, I would wonder, “Whatever happened to Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Decathlete Champion?” Continue reading
