Good Tuesday morning…
Hope everyone had a great Monday..It was kinda of a blur for me!!🤣 It seemed I did the morning live and from that point on, it flew by.
Guess that is what happens when you try to cram a lot of stuff into 1 day and then attempt to complete all said stuff within that time frame.
Yesterday was about getting the master bathroom painted. Hubby had prepped everything and got it to the point that it was ready for the trim paint and the main paint. We decided to use some paint that a contractor friend had. His client had changed their mind about the color and it was a full 5 gallon bucket of new paint that he could not use, so this lady decided it was a good idea to paint the master bathroom with it.
In the back of my mind I kept thinking, “I am missing something that I remember vaguely reading about” The ahh-ha moment happened when I opened the can of trim paint. The smell emitting from the can was enough to have my helper “son” leave the room. I have to admit, in all my years of painting, I have never known white paint to smell so bad. Like a bad smelling bathroom, umkay!!! It was bad!!!
Then I remembered what I had read. In comes the handy dandy essential oil!!!! You are probably wondering, “what in the world would you use the oil for?” Oh let me tell you!!!! I added about 10-15 drops of Lemon Essential Oil (doTERRA) to that paint. The paint can had about 1/3 left in it. Once we added the oil to it, it cut the smell immediately. Like BAM, most of the smell was gone!! I looked at my bottle of Lemon oil and thanked to day I said yes to oils!!! So there you see, oils are for so much more than counter huggers and water bottles!!!
The next time you want to paint, remember to grab your lemon oil and add it to the paint!!! If you don’t have any, let us know and we will get you hooked up!!
If you would like a sample of Lemon oil, send us a message and we will get it to you.
Until our next grand adventure, stay safe and paint on!!
