And the promise that they will make the air “fresher” couldn’t be more […]

Candy

Candy

Candy is a southern girl who enjoys the simple things in life. Dirt road drivin’, Sunday afternoon nappin’, back yard swingin’, and sunset watchin’ are a few of the things that make her smile. She’s been married to her best friend and the love of her life for almost 25 years and is navigating motherhood with her 4 children, aged 23, 19, 14, & 11.

While our bodies are designed to naturally eliminate these unwelcome visitors, an overloaded system is often unable to perform that natural detoxification process on its […]

Note: Today I am especially proud to share this post with you. First, a bit of background. Although we have used essential oils in our home for many years, I was introduced to Rocky Mountain Oils fairly recently.
