Total time:  20 minutes
Serves: 6

2 tablespoons KerryGold butter
2-4 ounces of fresh organic mushrooms
2 tablespoons of fresh organic onion, chopped or 4-5 dashes of organic dried minced onion
1-2 organic garlic cloves, minced (or the already diced up organic garlic from Meijer)
1/4 cup plus 6 tablespoons organic King Arthur all-purpose flour
2 cups of homemade chicken broth or stock
1 cup heavy cream (raw preferred, if not organic at least)

Autumn Diffuser Blends

The Best Diaper Cream

The Best Diaper Cream (clay)
2 oz cup shea butter (I buy this one.  But is not white.  It is yellow.)
2 oz cup coconut oil (I buy this one.)
1/4 cup bentonite clay (I buy this one.)
7 drops doTERRA lavender essential oil
7 drops doTERRA melaleuca
Almond oil (I would recommend this one.) or jojoba or avocado.  If needed.

1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and use a fork to mash all ingredients together.  If the cream is too dry, add 5-10 drops of Almond oil at a time and continue mashing until the consistency is that of a very thick paste.  This will take a few minutes but the end result is worth it.
2.  I then transfer cream to this container.
3.  Apply with clean hands as needed.
Lasts 6 months, approximately.

Keep Oiling!

Cooking with Essential Oils

Why Buying Essential Oils from Amazon or eBay ISN'T a Good Idea.

See this little thing? This little thing is a brand new cap for an essential oil bottle. This little
thing SCARES THE CRAP OUT OF ME!!!!! Do you want to know why?

Because dishonest people could buy these caps, buy bottles of essential oils....dump out 
half of the bottle of essential oil and refill that bottle with fractionated coconut oil, synthetic 
chemicals or who know's what else, put this new cap back on and sell it on Amazon or 
eBay and you would never know.

DO NOT buy oils from Amazon or eBay. Buy your oils directly from doTERRA or a

Wellness Advocate (doTERRA IPC).

SHARE this with EVERYONE you know.

Diffuser Comparasion

I own all 4 of these diffusers and I love all of them but I do have my favorites.

#1 Favorite: Aroma Lite (I love that it goes for 8 hours.)
#2 Favorite:  Petal (Only goes up to 4 hours, but I still love everything about it. Especially the price.)
#3 Favorite:  Lotus (Love its style.  But only goes for 1 hour.)
#4 Favorite:  Aroma Ace (Love but can't use in bedroom.  Too noisy.  And DO NOT use fractionated coconut oil in this one.  Oils only.)
