    • Ooo, how wonderful! Your home is going to smell just like heaven! ❤
      The lion pic I sent you was from home (Addo) – Pete home for a few days so we popped into the park on a whim in the pouring rain. What a treat it was to come across the king of the jungle again.
      Love and hugs to you dear sweet Kim. xoxoxo

  1. You’ve actually listed some of my all time faves with oils here AND I’ve learnt a thing or two. When I was a little tacka my Momma would rinse my very sparse mop of hair with water and a few drops of Rosemary oil – she may have overdone it as I might have been a bit of a baldy until I was 2, but once my hair got its grow-on, I’ve now got such a lot of hair!!!! I know it’s sort of bloke oil but I do love Sandlewood oil so much too.

Don't be shy, leave a reply. :-)
