Here are some of the recipes Anna and I tried this week. Some were awesome, some need adjusting, but I’m having so much fun replacing these products with wholesome natural ingredients. It’s a great excuse to hang out with friends and help make your family healthier !
These are some of the many reasons I love essential oils. They are helping bring wholesome ingredients and products into our home. If you don’t know much about essential oils check out more info on oils here.
Below you’ll find recipes for shampoo, body scrub and bug spray. We also made deodorant, but I didn’t think it worked well enough for me, especially for the summer. Were working on adjusting the recipe and would love to share it with you once we have it all figured out !
Enjoy the recipes below and let us know how they work !!
1/2 C Coconut Milk
2/3 C Water
1/3 C Olive Oil
1/3 C Castile Soap
10-20 Drops of essential oils (I used Lavender and Cedarwood which also supports hair growth)
Mix together in shampoo bottle and enjoy!
Coconut Lime Body Scrub
1 C White Sugar
1/4 C of melted coconut oil
10 drops of lime essential oil
Mix together, divide in mason jars and enjoy! Also a great gift 🙂
Bug Spray and Tick Repellent
2/3 C Witch Hazel
5-7 drops of each – Peppermint,Thieves, Purification, Citronella and Cedarwood
I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I have. I love the way they smell and how they make my skin and hair feel!
