Sad news

Remember the baby shower cake I did here?

There was a tragic car accident on January first.  They were traveling back to Texas(from visiting family in Chicago) through Arkansas when they were hit by a drunk driver. Their two month old baby was killed in the accident along with a pastor in Little Rock and his grand daughter.  It was so sad.
In addition to losing their baby, their car was totalled, they lost all their Christmas presents for their three year old Olivia, who survived the crash, and are going to stay in Chicago because right now the mom, Becky, cannot emotionally handle coming back to Texas with all of the memories of her baby.  This means her husband needs to find a new job too.
My friend, Cara from A Time To Heal, is having a fund raiser for the family.  20% of all proceeds from her essential oils will go to the family. http://stores.mybutterflyoils.com/StoreFront.bok  She is running this though the whole month of January.
I love essential oils!  Lavender is great for burns and calming you.  It is also a great scent for soaps, air fresheners, sachet cases, to put in your fabric that is stored and make it smell good.
Peppermint helps with my asthma, is a great oil to add to vinegar and clean with since it is antibacterial, I put it in a diffuser and you can't smell my cats.
Cinnamon is great for killing germs and smells great also.  I use it mixed with distilled water for a mouth wash.
Check out Cara's blog for more information on essential oils.
I used essential oils in my hair rinse.
You can also use it in baking, but it is stronger than extracts so be careful!

All of this is to ask you to help this couple out by making a purchase through Cara's website.
I have a video to share with you, a memorial of the baby, Robert Cecola Jr.

Please help this young couple out in their time of need.

This is horrible and to think it was a drunk that did it is worse. I have to come back after work to really read the links more closely. This is so terribly sad.
