When I wrote the first in a series of articles about diffusers a couple of weeks ago, my intent was to share an easy yet effective way use essential oils for both healing and a sense of well-being. In that article, I explained the role that smell plays in maintaining our overall health, along with eleven specific benefits of using essential oils with a diffuser. In addition, I explained how steam inhalation could be used to achieve similar results, no diffuser required.
Of course, I feel that every household should include a diffuser. So does my favorite essential oil company, Spark Naturals. When they contacted me late last week and asked if I would like to give away a Sirq Diffuser and the Winter Blend collection of essential oils, I said: “of course”.

Be My Valentine, Please?
I am calling this a “Be My Valentine” giveaway because as far as I am concerned, we all could use a little more love in our lives. This is especially true for prepper types who tend to be so focused on readiness that we forget to live a little and laugh a lot.
So let’s take a few days off from prepping and lighten things up with a fun “Be My Valentine” giveaway.
The requirements of this giveaway are simple. All you need to do is share a tip telling the rest of us what you like to do to de-stress, cope with chaos, and/or live life more fully. Fair enough? Just don’t forget that for your comment to count, you need to tell the Rafflecopter “I Commented).
The deadline is 6:00 PM MST next Monday with the winner notified by email and announced on the Rafflecopter in the article. Please note that the winner must claim their prize within 48 hours or an alternate will be selected.
Note: Due to Customs requirements, this giveaway is only open to those with a mailing address in the United States.
Spark Naturals Weekly Special
The weekly specials from Spark Naturals offer an opportunity to save money on your EO needs. This week a number of oils are on sale for 25% to 30% off when using my discount code, BACKDOORSURVIVAL.
My favorites? The Winter Diffuser Blends (New Beginnings, Love, and Winter Blues) as well as Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, and Roman Chamomile, among others. These are floral scents, get it?
Seriously, the diffuser blends are absolutely fantastic I have been using them for a few weeks and picking a favorite is difficult. If I only had to pick one, however, it would be New Beginnings which is a blend of Rosemary, Lavender, and Bergamot.
The Final Word
I am keeping things short today so that we can all get back to the business of living. If you missed the diffuser article, after entering the giveaway, jump over to Diffusers and You: What You Need to Know and give it a read.
Have a lovely day!
Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Bargain Bin: Below you will find links to the items related to today’s article.
Spark Naturals Seasonal Blends: While writing this article, I have been diffusing one of the new season blends, New Beginnings. This blend is part of a seasonal collection of oils that will change every few months. There are three oils in the collection and they can be purchased individually or together in a set. I have tried all three oils is the collection (New Beginnings, Love, and Winter Blues) and am hard pressed to pick a favorite.
The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy, Revised and Expanded: This is a newly updated version of Valerie Worwood’s classic and when I say new, I mean it is hot off the presses. When my copy arrived in early November, I stayed up until the wee hours reading, learning, and enjoying the insights from the seasoned aromatherapist. The original has been my EO bible for years, and now it is even better.
Spark Naturals Base Salve: This is a foundation salve and is comparable to my Simple Salve. Using base salve, you can add your own oils to mix and match and concoct your own unique salves. Base salve is a bargain especially when you consider you can re-purpose the jar (worth a few dollars itself) when making your own Simple Salve down the road!
