Do you see that essential oil ad over there—->?
In April of 2014 I ate a doughnut and decided to take my sidebar ads down “for now.” Two years passed and during those years I turned down probably three or four offers to promote products on my website because I don’t want to subtly hint that I support plastic bags or weird makeup that was tested on sweet baby rabbits (or monkeys or dolphins). ((Or any animal, really.))
Anyway, a few weeks back I had an e-mail conversation with the woman who founded Better Essentials and she is super nice and she actually sent me some oils (I’ll be giving them away here in a few days) and I love them.
When I started this website back in 2001, I was a totally different person than I am now, and I sort of dig the fact that I’ve grown into someone I would have made fun of (behind my own back, obviously) back then. Today I’m a 45-year-old comfortable-clothes-wearing yoga-loving fiber-spinning essential-oil-diffusing cardigan-knitting drama-free clean-eater who used to know all of the rules of hyphenation, but is no longer a total stickler. Anyway: If you like things that smell good, I invite you to check out Better Essentials. If you dive deeper and want to explore oils beyond the good smells, I invite you to check out Better Essentials.
Best of all, please know that *I* asked *them* for the graphic and link on my sidebar. (I still have lingering guilt over the ad thing. I need to get past that, knowing that I’m going to recommend only things that I love.)
