Something New, Something Fresh
Say hello to Thieves 5 Essential Oil Blend! 🍃🍋🌿
Deb created a stunning soap bar and solid lotion bar scented with this blend, and for the first time, offering the essential oil blend by itself for household use!
Folklore traces back the origins of Thieves to a captivating story from 1413. During the bubonic plague, four daring thieves robbed the deceased without falling ill themselves. Legend has it that their secret was wearing hats and masks infused with vinegar, garlic, and a blend of herbs and spices, including cloves, lemons, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary.
This powerful combination of Clove, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalyptus is packed with antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, and antiviral properties – and it smells absolutely fantastic! 🌟 Experience a warm and comforting scent that will leave you energized, strong, revitalized, and relaxed.
Benefits of Thieves Blend essential oil:
🌿 Clove: Powerful antimicrobial to kill bacteria
🍋 Lemon: Energizing, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory
🌿 Cinnamon: Soothing, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral
🍃 Eucalyptus: Anti-fungal and antiviral properties
🌿 Rosemary: Supports immunity and has anti-fungal properties

Get Off Me!
Summer is here, and with it of course the bugs. Get Off Me to the rescue!
Lemon Eucalyptus is also called Eucalyptus Citriodora, the source for Citronellal. this essential oil has a wonderful lemon scent and is known for its bug repellent properties. You'll appreciate the bitter sharp citrus scent, but bugs won't!
Deb created two versions - a solid lotion, and soap.
I got to use the Get Off Me solid lotion recently as my men's Bible study group started meeting outdoors in a park. I never felt comfortable with those bug sprays. I applied a little of the solid lotion to my arms, head, and neck. Aside from the skin moisturizing benefits, not one bug bothered me!
The Get Off Me soap has Kaolin clay, which provides gentle exfoliation, helps to draw toxins from the skin, helps to increase circulation, reduces skin irritation, and helps to reduce inflammation. And with the Lemon Eucalyptus, bugs will hate you. Perfect for camping, beaching, and yard working.
Get ready to pamper your skin with our latest handcrafted soap creation! Experience the perfect blend of crisp citrus, fruity floral, and refreshing green apple notes that will leave you feeling invigorated and refreshed.

Jon here! Over the years, aside from experimenting with every type of shaving blade imaginable, I tried every kind of shaving cream, foam, and soap. I found shaving soaps to be the best, but like typical store-bought detergent bars, commercial shaving soap left a lot to be desired.
After a deep dive of research, Deb came up with the perfect shaving soap. At its core is Bentonite clay, made from volcanic ash and is known for its absorbent properties. It's often used in skincare products to help draw out impurities and toxins from the skin, making it an excellent exfoliant. Bentonite clay provides skin cleansing and pore refining benefits, and also is key to helping the razor glide easily.
Just for Fun
Our little streaming radio station is thriving, rain or shine (well, except when a pesky storm knocks our power out!).
For those who are new here, Sunny Bungalow Radio started as a simple way to have awesome music playing all around the house, especially while making soap. But, we got a bit carried away and it evolved into a super cool (and surprisingly FCC compliant) local FM station, streaming online too! We stream happy oldies, a little jazz, vocals, and in the evenings, a little rock mixed in.
We're coming up on the one year anniversary of the station. W
e want all of you to join in the fun! Head over to radio.sunnybungalow.com to find a streaming player, streaming player links, schedule, and more juicy details.
And don't worry, our station is and will always be ad-free. No interruptions, just good vibes!
So, turn up the tunes, dance around your bungalow, and let the good times roll with Sunny Bungalow Radio!
That's all for now! As we promised, we'll keep these newsletters infrequent and in tune with the seasons.
Stay tuned for exciting updates and news.
Wishing you and your loved ones abundant Blessings for the remainder of the season. Stay cool!
Cheers with Love,
Deb and Jon
