Lemon Spray!

What can I say about lemon spray?  It's my thing right now.  It's uses are never-ending :)  from covering doggy farts to waking you up when you are falling asleep at work.

Let's pretend it hasn't been that long since my last post ;)

Ok, so a lot has happened since I last posted.  New boyfriend, new position at work (promotion, yay), a teenage son who turned into a man (officially 18 yesterday, UGH),  and working on my health!   This may not seem like a lot, but it really is ;)  Anyhoo, I want to talk about perfume.  I have made over 36 scents in the past 4 years, not that I was advised to do that by any means but it is what it is.  So, I am going to talk about my best sellers.  #1 best seller of all time is CLOVE CIGARETTE.  A personal favorite of mine as well.  My men's line is also a best seller.   In the men's line there are 5 scents; Primal Forest, Woodland, Ancient Woods, Atticus, Tommy Gun and Viva La Creme.  I can bathe in all of these on any given day.  My latest is SUMMER SOLSTICE.  This was inspired by the beach.  I live about 3 miles from the beach and have spent a lot of time here with my dog.  Summer Solstice starts off with the scents of Salty Jasmine air as you walk along the boardwalk, hints of sand and citrus, then winding down with notes of a distant campfire. I am quite proud of this concoction if I may say so myself.  I have not worked on anything for about a year and now will be working on new packaging.  I want to go for a much cleaner look.  The fairy look was awesome and I still love it, however, I get bored easily, that is all.

Ok, so now a little about Hashimotos.  I hadn't heard of this thyroid disorder until I was diagnosed with it just over a year ago.   With Hashimotos I experience a lot of Hypo thyroid symptoms with about 1/4 of the time hyper thyroid symptoms.  Eye issues along with headaches and extreme fatigue are classic for me.  I have been gluten free for about a year (for the most part).  Of course I have to cheat here and there.  I have also gone on anti inflammatory diets and just about to start another one that is suppose to lessen the symptoms.  It seems like a total nightmare for me since I will have to give up tea and agave, a total addiction for me in the morning.  Here's a list of things I can have:

Does this look like fun to you?  I am having a hard time with this one for sure.  I will start next week.  Oh BTW I don't eat meat.  I don't want to start either, so that cuts out one bullet point.  And eat the fruits sparingly????  :(

So the reason for my post is I will be making special blends that are therapeutic for the thyroid.  I am hoping to have these available by the end of July. 

Foods to eat

  • Most vegetables (except nightshades and mushrooms): Asparagus, spinach, lettuce, broccoli, beets, cauliflower, carrots, celery, artichokes, garlic, onions, zucchini, squash, rhubarb, cucumbers, turnips, watercress, etc.
  • Fermented foods: Sauerkraut, kimchi, pickled ginger, fermented cucumbers, coconut yogurt, kombucha, etc. You must make your own or buy one of the few brands that are genuinely fermented (not made with vinegar) and free of sugars or additives.
  • Meats: Grass-fed and organic chicken, turkey, beef, bison, lamb, etc.
  • Low glycemic fruits sparingly: Apricots, plums, apple, peach, pear, cherries, berries, etc.
  • Coconut: Coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, coconut cream.
  • Olives and olive oil
  • Ghee (butter oil) unless severe dairy allergy

I was featured in the Menagerie Art Show at the Yost Theater.  Here is a video they left with me.  If I talked any slower I would just die.


My new line design is finally done!  My men's cologne's have been out for a year but now finally the logo is complete!  The colognes in this line are "Atticus", "Primal Forest" & "Ancient Woods".  Woodland is a new on that I will be adding soon.  I am very proud of this line.
