White Angelica Essential Oil blend is one of my favorite blends from Young Living. It is made up of 10 essential oils: the Geranium, Ylang Ylang, and Rose essential oils provide some floral notes. The Bergamot and Melissa essential oils offer a boost of bright citrus. Finally, the Myrrh, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Coriander, Hyssop […]
I developed this homemade skin cream based on two of our favorite soothing skin cream recipes. The pure coconut oil was too strong for Bug’s skin, so we cut it with shea butter. It’s perfect for Bug (and her cousins) so I hope you or your kids love it, too! Essential oils have absolutely changed […]
It’s that time of year in the South apparently. We have a bit of an annoyance issue at our elementary school this year. And, when I asked why I wasn’t told about a certain issue, I was told I should always use precautions and always check at home throughout the school year. Boosted the annoyance […]
Let’s talk about you and …OK, not me, you and your special friend. 🙂 There are some amazing homemade lube recipes out there that use essential oils. But not so much on the water-based lube, the condom-safe variety. So, when I finally found a recipe I liked, I added the essential oils to spice it […]

So, my husband is getting a tad oily by osmosis. But he’s not a fan of the fruity or flowery scents. So, we ordered him some Citrus Fresh, Lemongrass and Cedarwood for manlier smelling personal care products. Check out my post over at Don’t Mess with Mama for more manly conversions on my essential oils beauty products. Meanwhile, try this […]
My 5-year-old got some bad news at the dentist last week. She has a tiny cavity on one of her molars. I was super bummed because we’d been loosely following the Cure Tooth Decay protocol. To be honest, with one kid still struggling with potty training, it was REALLY loosely. I couldn’t fathom how to […]
Store-bought deodorant is full of all kinds of icky stuff. But some of the homemade or all-natural stuff just doesn’t work for me. I’ve finally found one that works great. It’s made from cornstarch, baking soda and coconut oil with a bit of essential oil mixed in. I absolutely love the citrus-cinnamon smell of the […]
I may have a new favorite homemade gift: DIY coconut oil lotion bars! I absolutely love them and I hope those who get them as a gift this year will love them, too!
