At the risk of this being a HUGE dud, I am going to go out on a limb and do something SUPER different. I want to reveal myself as a huge geek to you and admit that I actually wrote a few essential oil safety-related songs to the tune of some popular songs. Yes, I know, it's super silly of me! But I know so many people learn through music, and setting some safety information to lyrics can get a song in your head so you can learn to memorize some good information.

Because I can't afford to hire professionals to sing and make some great YouTube videos, I thought I'd go to YOU, my essential oil safety lovers, and see what kind of talent you all have!

We'll start with one song, “Safety,” which I wrote to the tune of “Happy.” It isn't as meaty as some of the other songs, so I hope you aren't disappointed, but it's a place to start. If this contest is successful, then I will do more.

The rules are pretty simple: make a YouTube video of yourself singing the song, and then e-mail a link to me at leaharrisUEOS@gmail.com by June 15th. You can either have a video where we are watching you sing, or you can show the lyrics on the screen while singing over them. It's up to you! Feel free to tweak the lyrics if you wish. After all submissions are gathered, I will put them up for vote in our safety group.

“SAFETY”

It might seem crazy what I'm about to say
Dilute the oils, give your skin a break
I use essential oils safely
In the air, because I care, by the way

It's all about SAFETY
Clap along if you feel like a room that's been diffused
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel like safety is the truth
It's all about SAFETY
Clap along if you know what safety is to you
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel using safely is what you wanna do

Here come bad news talking this and that
Drink it all up, and don't hold it back
Well, I should probably warn you that it's not fine
No offense to you, don't waste your dime
Here's why

It's all about SAFETY
Clap along if you feel like a room that's been diffused
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel like safety is the truth
It's all about SAFETY
Clap along if you know what safety is to you
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel using safely is what you wanna do

Bring it down
dilute them
Bring it down
dilution's too high
Bring it down
dilute them
Bring it down
dilution's too high
(repeat)

It's all about SAFETY
Clap along if you feel like a room that's been diffused
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel like safety is the truth
It's all about SAFETY
Clap along if you know what safety is to you
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel using safely is what you wanna do
(repeat)

Bring it down
dilute them
Bring it down
dilution's too high
Bring it down
dilute them
Bring it down
dilution's too high

Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel like a room that's been diffused
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel like safety is the truth
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you know what safety is to you
Because it's SAFE
Clap along if you feel using safely is what you wanna do
(repeat)

We are having a YouTube video contest! If you are musically inclined and/or have a singing voice, we would love for you to enter!
