Nat: Re-naming Luna / Introducing Essential Oil

Five days have passed since Luna (now renamed Nadia) gone to her new home.

I wonder if she is happy there.

Many thoughts run through my head as is type this.

Is she enjoying her life now?

Is she obedient?

Does her new mama and papa love her?

Will she remember me?

Gawd, I miss her so much. I didn't know I would love her this much despite the short 2 weeks time she spent with me. Looking forward to see her again soon, when her new parents settles for a date for meet-up.

Every time I miss her now, I will hug my 2 others. Zen seems especially sticky and manja these days, now that Luna (Nadia) is gone. Patches had gone back to her usual self of bossing around Zen.

On another note, I finally got down to introducing essential oil into our lives. Had actually been using Citronella and Eucalyptus for the girls as part of preventive for ticks and fleas. I add these into their shampoo, and occasionally drip one or two drop (of either Citronella or Eucalyptus) on their scuff area. So far none of them ever had tick infestation, as compared to previously when they were on Frontline they still get some ticks every now and then.

Now I have added some more varieties like Ylang Ylang, Lavender, and Orange (Bitter) into our home; not to apply on the girls but added to a burner. I sleep better these days, and the girls they love linger in the room when I am burning any one type of the oil. I also had mixed a concoction for massage; using Grapeseed Oil as carrier, adding Ylang Ylang & Lavender in it - approximately about 10 drops of essential oils to 10ml of carrier oil. I tried massaging some on the girls to relax them, they loved it! Perhaps it's the massage motion and not the oil, they refused to budge after the massage session hahahas..
