Meditation and Sharpie Marker Mugs

Blogger: Ava and Emily Today in class we did a lead meditation at the beginning of class. We used an app you can get on your phone called Breathe. Meditation is very relaxing and you can do it sitting, standing, lying down, in whichever position is comfortable for you. You can close your eyes of keep them open. Meditation helps you have a good mental state as well as makes you feel better. After our calming meditation, we were able to write in our journals about anything we wished. We looked at some ideas of journaling thoughts to write about on Pinterest. The last activity we started was decorating mugs with sharpie oil-based markers. You can get these at almost any store, but they might be cheaper at Meijer. To make these cute sharpie mugs, you get a plain mug and draw a design of your choice and wait for three days and then bake it.

Om Cafe Aromatherapy Fun!

The first Om Cafe class was very chill and it smelled divine in our classroom!  The class made body scrub with just a few simple ingredients.  You can use the scrub as an exfoliator and it leaves your skin feeling so soft.   Here are the steps to make your own body scrub: 1.  Gather up the ingredients: sugar (brown, white, or raw), oil (olive, coconut or vegetable), and essential oils 2.  Add oil to the sugar at a ratio of 80% sugar to 20% oil and mix in a bowl (such as one cup of sugar to 1/4 cup of oil) 3.  Add 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oils and stir 4.  Put the mixture into a container with a lid Be careful if you use it in the tub or shower, as it will make the floor slippery. This body scrub makes a great gift.  Put it in a small mason jar, slap a label and ribbon on it, and you are good to go! We hope that you enjoy this simple craft and that it may bring some OMMMMMM into your life!  :-)
