Here's a list of the DIY products I've got on hand at the moment. Soon I'll be posting the recipes for each so that you can make your own, too.
Want to skip the chemicals and harsh alcohol in commercial toothpaste and mouthwash? Baking soda, xylitol and tea tree oil provide scrubbing power and antibacterial effects, and trace minerals and calcium carbonate are added for their mineralizing properties.
Soothing lavender, tension-relieving copaiba, and cooling peppermint oils are helpful for relieving headaches. Blend them together in this roll-on and apply around the hairline.
Whether I need focus at work, creativity at home, or mental clarity for life in general, this blend of bergamot, eucalyptus, rosemary, lavender, lime, frankincense, vetiver and spearmint helps me clear away confusion.
This Fall-Asleep roller, a combination of cedarwood and lavender oils, helps my mind and body relax and unwind.
Stay-Asleep is simply vetiver oil and almond oil in a tiny roller bottle that packs a powerful punch. I sleep much more soundly when I roll a drop or two on the back of my neck and feet.
Oh the holidays. People, parties, overnights at overcrowded houses... just saying. This stuff is convenient. Spray 6-7 little spritzes before you go.
Vanilla and honey complement the orange oil for a sweet, playful smell. (Go ahead and taste it - it's all natural.) Vitamin E and shea butter enhance the whipped coconut oil base for luxurious moisture and protection from the dry winter air.
Licking your lips is counterproductive but irresistible with this all-natural moisturizer. Real cocoa powder or vanilla complement the peppermint oil for taste. Shea and coconut moisturize and beeswax offers protection from the dry air.
Why can't "real life" in marriage be like the movies, where they don't need to brush their teeth before kissing? With this potent peppermint oil-infused water, no trip to the sink is needed to edit the real-life factor from your romantic Saturday morning.
Ditch your expensive, chemical-laden moisturizers and make your own. This actually helps to kill bacteria naturally, with lavender, tea tree, and frankincense oils. Vitamin E and almond oil balance the whipped coconut base for a deeply moisturizing cream that protects your skin. Lavender and frankincense are perfect for mature skin and are often used for wrinkles and sunspots in natural skin care.
"Soft, full, and tamed," or "scratchy, irritating, and scraggly"? The choice is yours. Take control of your grooming habits with a woodsy blend designed to absorb quickly, protect skin, and encourage hair growth.
