Melaleuca Product Review – Koala Pals Hair Wash & Body Wash

Hello Lovelies,

download (1)

I have a new Melaleuca review for you, it’s another favorite of mine. The Koala Pal’s Hair wash and Body wash. These two products are for kids and it is tear-free and chemical free, both products have all natural ingredients.

Hair Wash

This special hair wash contains natural ingredients such as oats, tea-tree oil, chamomile leaf extract, vitamin E and green tea. It is gentle for their hair, conditions and shampoos and makes the kid’s hair soft, shiny and strong. My children even love it, especially the soft sweet gentle smell it gives.

Body Wash

This body wash smells amazing and leaves my kids feeling soft, smooth and smelling like angels. I seriously love this stuff and will keep ordering it. It contains tea-tree oil, chamomile, vitamin E, green tea, oats and aloe.


As a preferred customer I can order this as a set and save $4.02, it only costs $8.98 for the pack, that’s a great deal. I totally recommend these two products for your children.

5 ways to use Essential Oils with Household Items

Hello Lovelies,

I love Essential Oils! They smell amazing and have many healthy benefits. They treat all kinds of things from bug bites to burns, sweet aroma to spicy aroma, headaches to menstrual relief. You can use essential oils in all kinds of things as well especially for household items and beauty items.

I’m a mother and a hippy at heart, if it’s not natural and safe for my body or the earth I personally don’t want to use it.

Essential oils are a huge part of my life and I use them with everything again from beauty products to household items.

Here are 5 awesome ways I use Essential Oils in my home and you can too.


1. Potpourri

I use fresh rose buds in a mason jar and put about 1/4 cup of Almond Oil and then about 20 drops of essential oil, and a candle warmer. I love using exotic sandalwood or just sandlewood with the roses it gives a sweet soft smell and makes the whole room smell amazing.


 2. Candles

I like to take non-scented candles from Wal-Mart and melting them down and mixing the wax with essential oils. This blend here is a citrus blend using lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit. Depending on the size of the candle will depend on the amount of drops you use. Here in these shells I have 3 drops of each oil.


3. Homemade Air Freshener

This homemade air freshener is really simple to make just take a small mason jar, poke holes in the lid for breathing and fill the jar with baking soda and put about 15 drops of essential oil in with the baking soda and mix it up a little, put the lid on and you have an air freshener.


4. Scented Olive Oil Candle

Here is an olive oil candle, another simple quick diffuser for those essential oils. All you need is a mason jar, lantern wick or wire, a paper clip, olive oil, and your essential oils. Use the paper clip to hold the wick center by wrapping it around the wick and clipping it to the side of the mason jar. With this jar I used 20 drops of essential oils. Ohh and just a little tip do not use any other wick unless you plan on having a fire.


5. Clothes Pin Diffuser

This is super simple, hot glue pom balls or felt stickers to clothes pins and stick it in the air conditioning vents. I like to put about 20 drops in each cotton ball, it makes the whole room smell like lemons… or whatever aroma you desire.


All my essential oils come from Melaleuca the wellness company, there like is called Pure and I can order special packs as a prefered customer. My citrus pack cost around $30 with a savings of $13. It was a really good special running. Check out Melaleuca the wellness company and their line of essential oils today. Membership enrollments are just $1 right now. Click here to enroll.

Restaurant/Pub Review: Kilt & Clover 

Hey Lake Area Residence and Tourists! 

Have I got a treat for you today! 

This is totally off our schedule but I have to share this with everyone.

The Hubby and I decided to go to a new Restaurant in Osage Beach, MO. We heard a couple good things about it. 

People this place is amazing!!

They have been open less than 6 months, our experience was amazing and we will return. It is a true Irish restaurant & Pub. The lighting was low and each table had a lit candle, there were flags above the bar area, And old photos along the walls. Different signs of Ireland roads. The bartender/day manager was in a black Kilt, the waitresses were in plaid skirts with matching green Kilt and Clover shirts. It was awesome! 

My husband loved their whiskey menu, and the Ale was awesome to . Everything is either imported or Pappos brews it in Springfield. 

We kind of ordered to much, we took a bunch of stuff home but it was totally worth it.

The appetizers we choose were:

Irish Nachos home made real potato chips with a creamy cheese sause, tomatoes, green onions, green peppers, corn beef, and some other stuff. It was great! My favorite thing we ordered. 
Beer battered Onion Rings, they explain themselves. I love beer battered Onion Rings.

Our waitress was very eager to explain everything to us from the 53 whiskeys to the spiced sauces. She was very up beat and on it. I give her a 5 star review. 

We also had:

The fish & chips
Corn Beef & Cabbage with Carrots and Potatoes, this was simply plated and the petite size. Which was perfect because I was already enjoying those Irish Nachos. This dish was perfect.

They have a great menu and it’s family friendly, so take your kids. I know I’ll be going back there for sure. There was some desserts I wanted to try but I didn’t have the room. 

Seriously people you have to try it. It’s totally normal Irish food with an amazing selection of Irish Whiskeys and Ales. So stop in and have a break they have a happy hour and full dinner menu. For more information find them on Trip Advisor or stop in at: 

939 Premium Outlets Drive, Osage Beach, MO 65065 open Sunday 11 am to 9 pm, Mon-Sat 11 am to 10 pm 

I promise you won’t be disappointed!
