Ok, so you know the struggle is real! Mom life is something that compares to nothing else! Little people with limited comprehension, reasoning skills, not impulse control are counting on you for everything! Their entire well being falls on your hands and even though there are multiple different approaches, the desire to provide your absolute best is usually the forefront of every mom.
Then there are those days when you don’t event get to wake up with peace. Today was one of those days! I woke to the most disgusting smell. Yep it was the oh my gosh is that me or why the heck is it so strong kind of smell. Then it was the what the flip is causing it. And what even could have caused it. As your mind reels through the filing cabinet of mental smell memories bam! Right in front of you you discover the disaster of
Everywhere on the kid, the bed, the toys, the pillows! You gag back the instincts of normal human because, well, you are mom. No one else can do what you do. Then come the flood of despair as you start to plot your course through this mission of the list of ways to tackle it without causing more mess and hopefully with out having to touch it directly! That’s the worst right moms?!?
But here is where the story differs! I don’t use synthetics fragrances! So bam! Purification oil into the diffuser! Smell literally disappearing! Check! Then I also don’t use bleach or fragrance filled detergents so everything into the same load no matter the color, putting in my Thieves cleaning products (a little extra strength because this is just gross) and I can be assured it will clean deeply and kill all the microbes that are now crawling all over the place! Double blah!
Then because my mood in threading and the kid is finally in the tub (where she is using essential oil infused body wash) I don’t have to worry about her toxic exposure as she is cleaned. I pop in Citrus Fresh into my room to smell the mood lifting citrus and add that beautiful citrus clean smell to the house as if there was never a terrible horrible poop explosion.
So yes there was one and yes it did take a moment to tackle each task. But as a proud Essential Oils mom, I know everyone and everything will be beautiful, clean, safe, and there is a peace in my day after all!
