The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy

Post includes affiliate links, thank you for your support!

In my journey to clean living, I have been researching essential oils and their uses. After searching for a book all about EOs, I came across The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood on Mountain Rose Herbs.

Mountain Rose Herbs. A Herbs, Health & Harmony Com
 
After reading about what the book included, along with the reviews on it, I decided it was the book I needed in order to learn more about essential oils. I ordered it from Amazon for a great price and got it a few weeks ago. It is awesome! It is packed full of useful information... and that's just in the first few chapters I have read! It lists the ten most important essential oils for household use, how to use them to care for your family, plus many more essentials oils and their uses! It includes over 600 recipes for essential oil uses, scientific studies proving the benefits of essential oils, and the Biblical use of essential oils. The author has been a practicing aromatherapist for more than 20 years! It really is a complete encyclopedia-style book of essential oils!

Friday is Italian Night (easy pizza recipe)

I have a weekly menu plan based on themes, rather than exact recipes. Our favorites as a family are Monday Mexican Night and Friday Italian Night! Sometimes we have spaghetti on Fridays, but most often we have homemade pizza!

 
 
I always use Gwen's Easy Bread for my pizza crust. I switch things up every week by changing the style of pizza I make. Sometimes I make one big pan of pizza for my kids (cheese/dairy free) and one for Joey & I (fully loaded), or I make bread sticks and use the pizza sauce with ground beef as a dip... and last week I did individual pizzas!
 
The kids loved the individual pizzas best! I let each kid (Cyrene and up) spread out their pizza dough on a piece of parchment paper after I greased their hands with a little olive oil, baked them at 450* for about 15 minutes, then let each kid top with tomato sauce, meat, and cheese (except for Josiah, of course) and then I nuked them for 30 seconds in the microwave to melt cheese (the kids didn't want crispy crusts).
 
It was a fun time and they tasted delicious! Do you have a Pizza Night?
