Friends, I confess I am slap-happy tonight.  I apologize for the brevity of this post and all the goofiness.  My 2 year old woke up like 4 times last night, my 4 year old once and I just did not get enough sleep to produce the finest quality post.  It’s my hope that you get a little pop-culture laugh from this and some great oily ideas to start the man in your life on his journey to natural wellness with essential oils.
