Spring in the air I am loving creating bath bombs, soaps, aromatic inhalers and Essential oil combinations.
My creations have been travelling around the countryside again and some wonderful feedback is coming back.
The downward slide to Christmas has started with only 16 Fridays to go. Yes I know some people are saying that its too early to talk about Christmas but guess what the world just keeps on turning. What ever you do at this time of year enjoy your time with the season. Smile and wave, enjoy your family friends and maybe someone you see down the street.
Now lets get on the what I have been up too. “Lemongrass” is the essential oil of the month. Please find a recipe for Lemongrass Cookies.
Outback Aromas has a special on our 5mls of Lemongrass for 7 days $3.50ea at In2 Quilting & Craft in Merredin.
Well Spring has definitely sprung with the sun out today and shining. Plenty of birds & butterflies flying around in the front yard. I am enjoying a pot of Japanese Morning Dew Green Tea which is made of Rose, Lavender, Calendula, Green tea leaves. I have also been in a spring cleaning mode with cleaning the bathroom with our own range of Essential oil base made cleaning products. With twists of Lemon, Lime, Peppermint and Cedarwood. Our house smells wonderful. I have a friend who always says your house smells so good all of the time. It’s all about the Essential oils. A have a few to choose from.
What Essential oils do you use?
I use them all in the many household items. Lavender & Rose in our sheets, Eucalyptus in the washing machine, Orange & lime in the Vacuum cleaner, all of the oils in the oil burners depending on the mood. Lemon & Lime on the cutting boards after using them.
Our Aromatic Inhalers have been really popular too. Our Breathe Easy especially. Uplift and bring you into a clear conscience state, easy for anything. I am working on a blend to help hay fever too.
Well that all for now off to create some more. Be Happy enjoy your aromas.
Bye Tracy & Outback Aromas
Inspiring Aromatic Fun.
Happy Birthday to Outback Aromas.
What a roller coaster it’s been. I started this journey (Tracy O’Donnell, if you did not know who I was) I quit my Government job in the middle of the GFC and built a lifestyle for my children and survived to this day. I had a mortgage and 2 kids to look after. If the Passion & drive is there anything can happen. Build your wings on the way down and shine.
I was a single mum that wanted to do more than my full time job had a 4 & 6 year old children to care for and nurture. Little did I know that I would nurture my children in a whole new world and they have thrived and become beautiful loving caring intelligent young people of this planet.
Right back to the story, I would pack up “Jaffa” our little car with goodies and travel around the countryside with my girls packed in the middle. From this I did see a niche in the market and decide to crave my own road with whatever the obstacle was in my way. I have learnt to climb, fall, dust myself off and look at all types of critics and take on board all the wonderful praise that has come our way.
My creations have travelled the world from Ireland, England, Sri Lanka, Italy, New Zealand and all parts of Australia. I have being able to met the most inspiring people on the way and learnt that if you put yourself out on the ledge and take the leap of faith you will find your wings on the way down but also on the way (if you allow they) people will help you along the way.
People call me fearless and sometimes I do do bold things but I too do have times of oh my did I just do that. Anyone that knows me that I have a wicked sense of humour & a big laugh. I also have leant to laugh at you even when life is throwing the punches that just seem too hard to get up from. My ability to get and enjoy life is one of my talents, which I can thrive on.
When I started my little hobby that became a business and now a lifestyle. I joined a league of women that came out into the world and some men of the business world have started to take notice of. I did the same in the Fire brigade. I took on the boys and did my share of work to earn my place as a fiery, not an easy thing to do. My biggest compliment came from one of our highly experienced Captains of a few years ago. “Hey girlie you will do and I will fight a fire with you any day”. This was after 4yrs in the VFRS.
My Nan always told me that I could be anything and it did not matter that I was a female. I don’t think she thought I would really take her words so true fully. I was able to honour her memory with our Memorial candles which have brought comfort to many through losing someone. As far as fun memorial candles go I loved creating lanterns for a family in NSW. 8 lanterns made their way to the family all packed in popcorn to celebrate the young man’s life. The family was so surprised but loved the idea. The lanterns continued to be a light all the way up the ocean cliff near where they lived. Being part of this little journey with this young teenager was an honour. Thank you.
I have endeavored to help many people. I have be able to be part of many events with Lifeline, The Global Good Foundation, The Angel Network, Wheatbelt Business Network, Small Business Awrads, Small Business Centre Cental Wheatbelt, Merredin Volunteer Fire & Rescue, Merredin Community and the many committees I have been on over the years. I will continue to strive and bring a smile to people through Creative Inspired Fun with Outback Aromas.
My new look and range of products will soon be all reveled. One thing I have learnt about my journey is to share it and listen to others. As I look more into my Life Coaching ventures I hope that I have helped someone that is feeling down and now is able to smile. Life does throw you many curves, but just like the Ice bucket challenges’ don’t give up pick up the towel, dry off & Shine.
Bye for now
Time to create more.
Tracy & Outback Aromas
PS: We are having 28 days of giveaways’ stay tuned.
Well I am busy creating soaps today for the Fathers day, Outback Aromas Birthday Bash and just becasue its fun to do. I havent done these types of soaps for sometime so I am loving getting back into the fun and games of creating.
We will be having a celebration month starting in the middle of August for Outback Aromas as we hit a milestone in the business.
I have been looking at where we started what we have achieved and where are we going now with our products and our incredible journery through life.
I was talking to both my girls and discussing what they first remember of their crazy mum packing them in the car, making sure they were safe & sound. Then I would pack all my goodies around them. It all started beause my eldest was allergic to many products. I now make her own prducts without nasties and sometimes no colour depending on her style. Shes a teenager now and meeting the requirements of both of my teenagers daughters can be fun sometimes.
My girls have been able to apply these have a go attitude with all that they are achieving in life now.
“Sometimes you have to just take the leap and build your wings on the way down.”
Well this is not getting the soaps created till next time. See you all soon.
Spread the love of Outback Aromas.
