Oh my gosh!  This is chocolate heaven.  It’s simply divine.  You might be tempted to eat it….DON”T!  I’m a chocoholic, but there is no such thing as chocolate essential oil and I always try to use essential oils before I use fragrance oils.  Don’t get me wrong – I do use fragrance oils, but always look for ones that are phthalate free.  Before I even had a chance to look for a chocolate FO, I found cocoa vanilla oil on Edens Garden.  I knew I had to try it.  And, the amount of vanillin in the oil gives this bomb a nice chocolate brown color without having to use any colorants.

I created this recipe for someone who can’t use bath bombs because she has an allergic reaction to all scents, including essential oils, EXCEPT for vanilla.  I call it my oatmeal, milk, and honey, but it smells like a yummy cookie!  I used vanilla oleoresin from Eden’s Garden, and while it’s not a true essential oil, and is a bit costly, it’s a good alternative for those who need something that doesn’t leave them sneezing, or who just want to smell like a yummy cookie after the bath!

Depression robs me of the things I like to do the most – both hobbies and spending time with my family.  The thing is, that when someone gives me the push, or I find the motivation to engage in the things I enjoy even when I don’t really want to, I almost always feel better and I’m thankful that I did.

Laura Lee, 52, with invisible wounds and scars.  I've learned to embrace PTSD and depression because if I don't own them, they'll own me.  I don't want to simply survive, but to thrive.  I hope you'll join me on my journey.  It's sure to be a bumpy road.
