Scenting Wool Dryer Balls

For the past couple of years we have used chemical free detergent (RnG and Tiny Bubbles) and love it, however I really miss that clean smell! You know the smell that makes you smile, feel clean, memories, etc. Well, now you can get that smell!

Here is what I do to scent our Buddha Bunz Wool Dryer Balls:


Here are the supplies you will need:

  • awl (the wooden handle that has a sharp pointed end)
  • Essential oils or Fragrance oils in the scent you want
  • syringe (I used one of my husbands Marinade Injector he uses for injecting the turkey for deep frying) I like it, since it has a couple extra holes and measurement. Sorry honey..
  • ziplock page(s) 
  • and your balls
I scented 6 of our balls with about 1/4 oz of Fragrance oil (it's alot, fyi)



1. Take the Awl and insert it into ball until you reach the middle


2. Fill your syringe with your oils (I filled the syringe up with all that I was going to use for all balls)
3. Insert the syringe into the ball center and squirt it in


4. After removing the syringe, just move the wool around to cover the hole.
5. Put the balls into the ziplock bags overnight for the oils to sink and absorb in.

I scent the balls that we are using and when the scent goes away I just go to another scent. I haven't mixed ball scents in a dryer yet. 

So happy scenting! This also works great to add your balls in your laundry room, dresser, coat closets, car, and anywhere else you might want scented. 

We are testing some oils right now to carry in our store for you to order.  We have some extra and if you are interested let me know and we can sell you some.

We have: 

.5 oz Gain
1 oz Monkey Farts
1 oz baby clean
1 oz french lavender

Weekly Giveaway [Jan. 14 - Feb. 1]

The WINNER of this weeks giveaway is SILLYBEANS! Please contact us within the next 5 days to claim your prize. Congratulations!

Every Friday we post a new giveaway (sponsored by one of our favorite maufactures) on our blog. This week's giveaway is an UTTERLY YOURS BREAST PILLOW with washable cover! [Total Retail Value $21.95]

The Utterly Yours™ Breast Pillow was specially designed by a mom to make nursing a much simpler and hands-free process. The pillow provides the most comfortable breast support and optimal breast position for nursing.

The product is targeted towards larger breasted women and those dealing with the forces of gravity which makes nursing a more challenging endeavor. These women constantly have to adjust or hold their breast which can make nursing a tiresome and frustrating activity.

The Utterly Yours™ Breast Pillow eliminates this very common issue so that moms can relax and focus on their baby while nursing, or just free their hands to enjoy another activity such as reading a magazine. While other products help make nursing more comfortable by supporting the baby, no product has yet addressed the need for breast support which is a need that continues to exist even when using other such products.

Designed by a Mom to Make Breastfeeding Simpler

Benefits
• Lifts and Supports
• Holds breast in position for hands-free nursing
• Easy to care for and easy to use
• Comfortable against the skin
• Incredibly compact - small enough to take with you
• Cover is machine washable

Made With Eco-Friendly Memory Foam

Weekly Giveaway [Jan. 3 - Jan. 10]


Every Friday we post a new giveaway (sponsored by one of our favorite maufactures) on our blog. This week's giveaway is a RUFFLEBUTTS Swing Top and matching Woven Bottoms (style is Ivory Rose, looking for an exact picture and will post as soon as I receive it)! [Total Retail Value $46.00]

The spirit of summer is alive in this feminine and frilly open-back swing top. The top is accented with 2 layers of playful bottom ruffles and sophisticated front darts. Fully lined in a fresh white cotton, this is the perfect top for fun days in the sun.

With its fun and frilly style, the RuffleButt diaper/panty cover adds a touch of innocence to any outfit.

Simpler yet, put this on over her diaper...and voila, she's dressed and ready to go! Made of 100% cotton and machine washable, this is designed for the stylish, yet busy mom. And really, what mom isn't busy?!

Knit vs. Woven Bloomers

This is a common question, especially on our RuffleButts. The easy answer is the cotton knit is the exact same fabric that is used to make our t-shirts. It is a soft 100% cotton, stretchy fabric, so more of an "everyday look", and is more wrinkle-resistant. Although the two bloomers are cut using the same pattern, the knit bloomer fits much baggier due to the heavier & stretchy fabric. The woven cotton is the fabric also used to make our solid-color Swing and Peasant Tops. It is 100% cotton, but more of that "traditional" bloomer fabric, and is not stretchy.

Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?

This past couple of weeks have been interesting to say the least!  With Jeta and Reva out of school for two weeks and little miss Vana wild as usual, we had some great and not so great moments! But we cherished every moment of it!

My Grandma gave me a card right after she died (she knew the time was coming) and on the front of it said "Live Grow Discover" and inside she wrote a little note about life and to take full advantage of it. (Hence one of the reason why we took a leap of faith and started Lil' Tulip's!) I keep it on our office desk to look at everyday and remember Grandma Shirley.




It's moments like the past couple of weeks that I look at it and smile and laugh about the poop on the walls, the pee on the floors, the straight jacket (read more later), the broken cookie jar, water all over the bathroom floor...

So, who stole the cookie from the cookie jar???? (it was my Grandma's cookie jar, I use every Christmas)

                                                        VANA!!!

Yes, our little Vana in her Rump•a•rooz (her favorite) pushed the dining chair to the countertop, crawled over the oven, and grapped the rooster's head and dropped it on the granite.... and ran to the couch! Broke in a couple of places.. So it's back on the bookcase until next year!

What are your moments in life that make you laugh?
