Lemon Oil - (Citrus limon) has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon consists of 68 percent dlimonene, a powerful antioxidant.  This is an oil I use daily in my house.  Not only is it great for waking me up, but I use it in a blend to help my allergies, fight congestion and drain lymph nodes at the first sign of sickness.  It is also a great cleaner and removes sticky things like price tags and gum off of surfaces.  Retail Value $14.80 for 15 ml bottle.

Thieves Oil - Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.*  This oil has literally changed our family’s health for the better.  We use it at the first sign of illness and have been able to avoid many doctor’s visits and prescriptions by using it.  Retail Value $44.41 for 15 ml bottle

Ground vanilla beans-- I read about this somewhere once.  That one time I made banana bread, I used it.  It was real good.  I sometimes froth it in my milk for my coffee too. 

UniBall Vision Elite Pen--  Best Pen Ever.  In fact, we are forbidden from having any other pen in my office at work.

Hempz Fresh Coconut and Watermelon Lotion-- So springy and yummy and light.  

Maybelline Baby Lips--  Clear and fun.  Keep in your purse.

A Zester--Because now that I learned you can freeze lemons, it is my most used kitchen utensil.  You need one.  And you need frozen lemon on everything. Just trust me.
