You know like the sweet baby candy 💕hearts some of us enjoyed in our childhood and gave for Valentine’s Day at school.

The milk chocolate kisses have a sweet loveable saying/ message on the bottom!

Here’s what they read:

Me & You

Gimme A Kiss💋

Be Mine

UR Sweet

BFF

Hey You!

A kiss 4 You💋

Sweet Kiss 💋

Love & Kisses 😘

❤️ If you love kissing, chocolate and Hershey’s Kisses …run don’t walk and try and find them! Place them in little bags or boxes, sprinkle them on a bed and the floor leading to the bedroom. Rose petals work well too. But kisses 😘 will really do!

❤️Another fun idea. Is to give a kitchen whisk. Tie a big bow on it and add a gift tag or greeting card that reads… “ Let’s Whip up something together.” The foodie would really love this clever idea!

❤️Make a massage oil in your kitchen. All you need is an empty and a bottle of olive oil or some other oil. Add a few drops of your or their favorite essential oil. 🌹 Rose makes an aromatic Massage oil. If you don’t like rose choose one you love. Shake up. Pour into a glass bottle. Tie a ribbon with an invitation, include a small candle. The invitation can read: “This magic elixir is redeemable for a warm and sensual massage by candlelight.”

❤️ Nothing like sending a LOVE Letter!

Create a love letter & Or DIY Valentine card!

(Not one off the store shelf)

What this pandemic has taught us is to not only stop, slow down and smell the daisies. It is also a time to share and spread love ❤️ and let that special someone in your life how you feel! Don’t let a card say it for you. YOU write it and say how what you want to say and why.

❤️Pick Up some Chinese Takeout. Add a set of fun chopsticks and have a delicious time.
I love these so much I carry them for V-day so my clients to enjoy. Actually great for the entire family. Interactive kissy lips 👄 fun.

I hope my ideas spark your imagination and or you can use one or two of them.

After all, It’s all about the little things.

Saying “I love you“ doesn’t have to cost a fortune!

I hope you have an awesome Valentine’s Day and that you’ll spread love and kindness in your own way.

PS

You don’t have to have a Valentine to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Be YOUR own Valentine! 🥰 Love Yourself.

Comforting!

It’s been quite a week. And I find my clients and I are stressed. Perhaps you are too! Life is tough right now.
So, I have recommended they explore a few flowery herbs to keep calm and comforted that I use. I hope you enjoy and find comfort in them too.
I use fresh lavender. I use the buds to make sachets and tuck them in my pillow case. So de-stressing! The aroma is addictive.I also love to sprinkle it on fresh baked sugar cookies just before they are done. So pretty.

The relaxing beauty of chamomile. Another gem is chamomile. I love it as a tea 🍵 with a dash of honey or agave nectar. Very relaxing. I also find it wonderful as a tea bag compress on the eyes to relax and to help those puffy eyes. Simply enjoy a cup of the tea and save the used tea bag. Apply it to your eye area once it has cooled do my use it hot from tea cup. Chill out for ten minutes.

Next up are rose 🌹 petals I love to pull them off the stem and make rose potpourri by drying the petals. I find this very relaxing and a creative time. And after it’s dried out I sprinkle them with a few dashes of rose essential oil. Place in a small bowl or sweet basket. So lovely and a relaxing light scent at your bedroom nightstand.
