Friday Favorite: Simply Earth’s Essential Oils

You’ve probably heard a lot about essential oils and have become curious –  I know I have! I mean, I know people who swear by them and all the benefits these provide; from better sleep to being more alert.

Since I wanted to personally find out what these oils were about, when a fellow blogger introduced me to Simply Earth; I took advantage of the opportunity to partner with them. Especially, because I liked what this company offers.

Simply Earth, gives back! And this is a big deal for me when trying new products. A total of 13% of their profits helps to stop human traffic.

So, what is Simply Earth? It’s an oil recipe box that works on a subscription system – monthly and quarterly. It includes 4 Essential Oils shipped for free to you. If you’re a complete beginner, like me – you may be able to receive a free diffuser when you start your subscription.

Essential Oils

My box included four essential oils, almond oil, two rollers, two inhalers with circle labels, glass beads and burlap sack, and six recipes.

The recipes, were a huge help. Again, I am somewhat of a newbie at this, so having a guide was a great feature that this subscription box offers. Also, having all the necessary items to make each recipe was very helpful.

Because my August box is a Back to School box, the recipes are about staying focused and awake. My personal favorite is the Backpack Refresher! It calls for Grapefruit, Almond Oil, Glass Beads, and a mini Burlap Sack. Once you follow the easy instructions, you simply toss it in your little’s backpack and that’s it. 😉

Plus, the fact that it’s tested for purity, free of pesticides and has zero additives puts me at ease. As a mom, I don’t want anything in our home that can be harmful to us.

I am very impressed with Simply Earth, they’ve made my initial essential oils experience a great one. Go check them out and see for yourself. They site is loaded with useful resources, like a free ebook with recipes, so that you get the most out of each oil box.

Easy Chicken Nachos

In all honesty, I think my daughter is more Mexican than Panamanian… At least when it comes to food. Otherwise, she loves Panama as if she was born and had lived there. I guess it’s just that magical of a place – yes, I’m totally trying to persuade you to plan a trip there and then come back to tell me all about it. 😉

Back to food. She loves tacos and every Tuesday says, “Mami, it’s Taco Tuesday!” I love tacos too but I don’t want to eat them on a weekly basis… Instead of Tacos, I offered to make nachos – my husband’s idea – and she gladly accepted. Not to say that she runs things around here… But sometimes she wins, especially when I don’t have dinner pre-planned.

I came up with some delicious and super easy chicken nachos, using ingredients that I mostly had. On the Border Monterey Jack Queso, Tostitos hint of lime chips, Two chicken breasts, adobo, corn, and jalapeños.

(Patriotic) Pancakes from Scratch

Happy 4th of July Y’all! While I am lucky to be home with the girls, my husband had to work. But the good thing is that he gets off work really early. 🙂

And even though we haven’t really made plans for tonight, I thought it would be nice to at least start our day off with something fun. What’s more fun than 4th of July inspired pancakes?!

Quick, Healthy, Tasty Broiled Salmon Recipe

Quick, Healthy, Tasty Broiled Salmon Recipe

Salmon is one of my favorite meals to prepare. I’ll admit that while in Georgia visiting my parents, I haven’t cooked much. I’m spoiled, I know. 🙂 So, I thought I could give my mom a break from the kitchen at least for a day and decided to make my salmon recipe for dinner.

First, I lined a baking sheet with foil paper, sprayed it with olive oil and set aside. Then I rinsed the salmon with cold water, seasoned with parsley, rosemary garlic and red pepper flakes.

Cajun Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are a must have here at home. They’re super easy to make, so I make them about once a month. And they don’t need to be thawed out which is great. If I haven’t decided what to make for dinner on any given day, I can take these out of the freezer and have them ready in under an hour.

While browsing around Pinterest I found this Cajun Chicken Wings recipe and decided to give it a try. It was delicious by the way.

Quick and Delicious Chocolate Croissants

Croissants are a favorite around here. Because so is chocolate, when I combine the two in this chocolate croissant recipe, no one can resist the temptation of having one or two of these sweet treats.

I have made these for breakfast, but they make the perfect snack. As most of the recipes I have shared, they’re super easy to make.
