“The more she emptied her heart, the more it filled with hope“. This citation is from Amy Sue’s Nathan book Well behaved wives, and it hits with accuracy. Emptying the heart relates to events and feelings from the past, which sit weighing on us, until we release them to flow away, giving space to new ideas and conviction that choices are our rights, to be made, in order to live fulfilled life.
In the 60s women needed husbands, in-laws, family permission to work, study, and do anything else than sacrifice all their time to be perfect wives, working tirelessly for a man to assure his spot in the best light and seize all his opportunities. Careers were a path for men. College for a girl had one aim only: to get M.R.S. title and never work a day after marriage.

If you have a collection of essential oils, you’ve probably found yourself wondering, “Can essential oils expire? Do essential oils go bad? When should you throw away essential oils?”
Not really! Essential oils don’t expire in the same way you’d think of food or other items ”going bad,” but they do go through a process of oxidization that begins as soon as the bottle is opened and the oil is exposed to oxygen in the air. Light and heat also increase oxidation.
