  • Essential Oils Make & Take Well Attended

    The library hosted a Essential Oils Make & Take Event on Thursday, November 30, 2017, at 6:30 PM in the community room here at the library.

    Debra Bogardus, a local Essential Oils consultant, instructed several patrons on using Essential Oils in miscellaneous common household staples to enhance their usefulness.  Patrons were able to make two (2) items for $5.00 total.  Examples of items they were able to make included Peppermint Epsom Salt Foot Soak, Sugar Scrub Goats Milk Soap, Peppermint Hot Cocoa Gift Packs, and Santa's Hat Stocking Stuffers.  Debra also had a delicious treat for the group to enjoy - Chocolate Orange Brownies....YUMMY!
