The smell of fresh laundry is amazing, but many times loaded with synthetic fragrances and chemicals that can wreak havoc on your skin and health. Make your own laundry detergent this holiday season with essential oils and share with your loved ones! Nothing says “I love you” like laundry detergent, right? I kid, I kid, buuut…some people dig these kinds of gifts. I’m one such person, but I’m not the definition of normal – just ask my darling husband. PLUS, it’s so easy to make, non-toxic, and cost effective. Learn how to make it here.
Glass Spray Bottles: Making your own room spray, linen spray, and other household goodies is limited only by your imagination. It’s always nice to include a few premade concoctions for your friend’s new home! Citrus oils can eat right through plastic so to stay on the safe side I use glass bottles for my mixtures. Mix Purification oil with some water and witch hazel to make an amazing DIY Home Spray (also works as an outdoor camping spray, too!) We make an Ant Spray using lemon oil, peppermint oil, vodka, and water– it seriously works wonders. Or whip up a DIY detangling spray for a chemical free way to detangle hair.
I just made the Balancing Perfume Blend. I then multiplied by four and added one ounce Distilled Water and one ounce Witch Hazel to a two ounce dark glass spray bottle. Just shake and spray and you have an instant Room Fragrance Spray. I also made the Luxurious Exfoliating Body Scrub. It smelled heavenly and left my skin super soft. I’m thinking of using the olive oil and salt blend as a base in a jar by the tub and customizing it to my needs. Then I can add specific blends to my silver dollar sized scrub like Muscle Love Essential Oil Blend if I have sore muscles, or a headache blend when my head hurts. I could add Anti-Fungal Blend for Athlete’s Foot, etc… The possibilities are endless. Thanks for inspiring me!
Add about 10-15 drops of any of these essential oils: Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Rosemary, Lavender, Clove, Cinnamon, Peppermint (decide what scents you love) to a baking soda paste (about 1-2 cups of baking soda with about 1/2 c water until it’s pasty like putty). Place in a pretty silicone muffin tray to dry for about 30 minutes. Pop out and store in a pretty bag with a ribbon. (Beware use with children. These are “hot” oils and could irritate lungs.)
The first one I ordered was scratched on the front. Amazon credited my account,I returned it and I re-ordered it again. I just got the second one last night. I have yet to use and wear it. It appears from a functional stand point that it will work just fine. However, I don't know if it will discolor over time. I will try to post a new review after a few uses. The picture of this item is very deceiving. It is much smaller in size that what the picture leads you to believe. If your looking for a small and more petite face this is good for you. If your wanting something with a large face I would suggest looking at other bracelets.
