Homemade Gifts


I know it's late, but we did manage to make and give away homemade Christmas gifts this year. The kids helped me make 5 batches of Wholly Granola (recipe is in the food section of the blog) and we put them into containers, labeled them, and gave them to friends and neighbors. (Many of our dear friends already have my recipe and make their own granola, though!) The kids also helped me prepare these spray bottles of Thieves cleaner (from Young Living). Not a gift that everyone would enjoy, but some of my good friends and moms who have a penchant for non-toxic cleaning seemed to be pleased. Thieves smells SO good, and you can use it for practically everything. Just a couple ideas for later!

What dilution ratio did you use for the Thieves? On the website it looks like they have lots of different recommendations, but I wondered what you use for regular disinfecting and cleaning?

I think I used about 1:30, as close as I could guess on my spray bottle.
