Brothers Campfire on Essential Oils, Sisters and Such.

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

Yesterday was a blast and I woke up a little sore, but if I am to lose weight and be in shape for tougher challenges, pushing myself a will be important. Last year I walked 35 miles in one day and this year I want to exceed that.

Today is national Do a Grouch a Favor Day, so I did my best to emulate Oscar the Grouch. How do I look?


Can’t tell us apart, can you?

Well anyways, I was minding my own business when my Beloved had a few girls over, namely my sister and sister in law. They were all excited about some essential oils and such like.

Now I don’t know about you, but when women assemble and start mixing things, I get to wondering if there is some sort of conspiring afoot. Just look at those grins. They spritzed me a few times with those dainties and all of it looked downright confusing and a little smelly.

I am not sure what is so essential about these oils, but it looked almighty important. They suggested I sell some of these mixtures online. What do you all think?

    If anybody could sell ’em, you could. I have mixed feelings about some of that stuff but I also have seen some things actually work.

    I have taken pain pills for bad headaches, but nothing works better than peppermint oil rubbed on my temples. Also, peppermint oil added to Deep Blue ointment reduces my arthritis pain better than pain pills and there are no side effects on my stomach that comes with pain pills. There are many other examples.

    Essential Oils are truly essential for me! If you decide to sell them, I would buy them from you, nephew.

    Maybe this is why I’m such a lost cause. If those Oils are essential and I’ve never used them it could explain a lot

    I’d do some research into the companies that produce the oils first. Some of them are pretty sketchy, and run pyramid style marketing schemes that I’m not a big fan of.
