Essential Oils Will Soon Be Available Through Hoodoo Hill

Essential Oils Will Soon Be Available Through Hoodoo Hill
For my ritual oils I have always preferred to make my own, and always will. But when I want to make soaps or candles or infuse my JuJu dolls with strong scented oils, nothing beats the Essential Oils. For those like me who have sensitive noses, some of the so-called EO's have an odd "bite" or "after-scent" to them. This is your first clue that these are not pure EO's!

I've used several different brands of EO's, but honestly there was always something lacking in each company: inconsistent product, poor customer service (or at least very lacking), not completely truthful in their advertising claims, and a few other reasons.

I will soon be offering EO's (and will have the page set up soon) for those who enjoy working with them and adding their wonderful aromas to your homemade ritual oils, soaps, and other crafts.

Be sure to check back regularly, as well as my Facebook page. I'll be getting them posted some time in February.

Holiday Season Begins

Holiday Season Begins
I haven't had a Christmas tree in over a decade, but this year I finally have one! LOL I won't be able to put decorations on it, only lights, LOTS of lights; because we have 5 cats and 4 dogs, a pig and a Macaw, and there is no way to keep them from destroying everything so bright and shiny and sparkly...and chewable! ;)

Here's my tree prior to getting the lights on it. We're letting it "settle" and the limbs relax before putting on the lights. My Hoodoo-man had to photo-bomb because he saw something outside that caught his interest. :)

I also put up my Christmas/Holiday altar.  That was the first thing I did actually. I have to have my altars up for each season. For January I'll alter it a bit so it is a "winter" altar - adding more white and maybe finding some white garland on sale after Christmas to add to it.

Today I will be baking the cookies that will be sent out to my family (the boys in FL and my sister and nephew in CA). Su likes the chocolate chip cookies, so she'll get most of those. My boys just like "everything", so I'll make sure they get lots of "everything"!

Well, it's time to get to that baking, but I just wanted to stop in to wish all y'all
