This oil is a perfect choice for this busy travel season. Here are a few recipes to get you started!
Place 10 drops of Medieval Mix in a candle lamp diffuser with 1/4 cup water. Besides the comforting ambiance provided by the glowing candle, these lamps are a great way to provide a sustained and protecting diffusion of essential oils. For travel, you can pick up a scent ball. Place the drops of oil on a pad and just plug it in!

Delish Summer Pasta Salad
1 box pasta (rotini, penne, spiral)
4 stalks celery, chopped
1 bell pepper (any color), chopped
1 large cucumber, cut into quarters, then chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped finely
1 cup vegan Italian dressing
1/4 cup Vegenaise
1 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dill weed
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
freshly cracked pepper, to taste
2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
Cook pasta according to box.
While pasta is cooking, wash and chop the celery, pepper, cucumber, tomato, and onion. You want nice chunks of the veggies.
After pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse under cold water to cool the pasta. I also take the empty cooking pot and run it under cold water so that the pot can cool down and I can use it to mix the pasta salad.After pasta is drained well, return to cooled pot.
Add chopped veggies. Next, whisk together the Italian dressing, Vegenaise, Dijon mustard, dill weed, salt, and pepper until smooth. Add to pasta and veggies.Finally, mash your chickpeas with a potato masher until crumbly. Add chickpeas to pasta and veggies and mix well.
Preparation time: 35 minutes

Food for Thought has a Wooden Nickle Program where customers are given a wooden nickle for each reusable bag they bring in and use in our store. Now what is the point? We have two charitable organizations at a time and the customer gets to choose where to put their nickles, and then Food for Thought matches the nickle by donating 10 cents for each nickle to the various organizations.
