MOVING CHILDREN TO A NEW HOME

It is very difficult for children to move to a new place. They love the familiarity with their home and surroundings, and it is hard for them to make the change. To help them with this transition, keep them involved. When searching for a home, have them look at virtual tours, pictures. Ask what they like about the house. Once a decision has been made, have a mini celebration with the family.

Scents for Your Home

The holidays are now over and you miss the fragrances. You can still keep your home smelling great throughout the year.

Create an oil spray by adding about 10 drops of your favorite oil to a water bottle and spritz the air with it. Boiling lemon, mint, rosemary, or any of your favorite herbs in water on the stove will fill the air with your favorite aroma.  Grinding citrus such as lemon peels, orange, and lime in your garbage disposal will take away unwanted odors. Your home will have its own bouquet of freshness. Enjoy the essence of your home.
