My son finds danger everywhere! Yesterday he heard the oven timer going off and opened the oven! Princess P (who is only 17 months old) walked right up to the oven and put her hand on the HOT door! Needless to say, I will be putting a lock on the oven from now on… but my point is that if trouble can be found, he’ll find it. All the same, I still want to light candles and enjoy simple pleasures like a fragrant home- especially when I’m having guests- and an open flame is not a great option for us right now. ( and he’s picked up the lit candle jar, that was set atop a counter that he ‘couldn’t’ reach).
Simple Solution. Light bulbs, essential oils, and a cotton ball. ** you can buy oils at Bath and Body Works**
Dab a bit of essential oil on your light bulbs with a cotton ball or swab! When you turn on the light, the heat will activate the oil scent and your home will smell great. I love jasmine – as you can see, it’s almost gone. You can even dab a bit on the inside of your toilet paper roll and when the roll is spun, the scent will disperse. This trick isn’t my favorite though because with 6 people in our home, our TP roll is quickly replaced.
