Stinky Shoes

With summer racing to an end you probably have accumulated more than one pair of stinky shoes around your house.  Just put 2 drops of Young Living Purification essential oil on each of two cotton balls.  Tuck them way down into the toe of each stinky shoe.  Leave overnight and check the improvement the next day.  

Yes, I know. Some of you have already started back.  However, you can still try this experiment.  Check out some other ways to use Purification essential oil here.

Once you've finished, you can read some "stinky" books with your own children or write these down to use in your classroom.  Did I miss one of your smelly favs?  Please leave the title in your comment below.
