Besides fresh-smelling laundry, dryer balls can quicken drying times by around 25% (varies on your dryer, clothes, and the amount of balls you use). Besides being super-friendly to Mother Earth, it’s good for the wallet. Unless you’re Warren Buffet, you like to save money, right? Even better, dryer balls are also non-toxic and can be scented with your favorite essential oil. Learn how to make you own dryer balls here.

With the holidays coming up, I decided to make a bunch of DIY essential oil recipes to share with family and friends. Let me just tell you how much money this is going to save me! Woot! Plus, I love the idea of giving loved ones healthy, non-toxic products that they can use as toiletries or in their home. (For more natural gift ideas, check out this post.)

Last, but not least, we included our favorite and super popular body butter recipe featuring Frankincense essential oil. It’s luxurious and creamy, yet easy to whip up with only 4 ingredients. Using shea butter, coconut oil, Vitamin E, and Frankincense, a stand or hand mixer is perfect to combine the ingredients together into an unforgetable body butter that everyone will love.

This is a classic spray that makes your laundry smell uh-mazing and helps to support well-being. Once your clothes come out of dryer or cloth’s line, spray your sheets liberally. Because Lavender essential oil is gentle, this is safe to use on your children’s sheets before bedtime. You could also use this as a soothing body spray or perfume (replace the distilled water with a light carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil.)


Mamas, it’s standard operating procedure that when our littles get sick, we don’t sleep. Right? Especially when that illness is accompanied by a cough that won’t quit. Growing up, Vicks VapoRub was a staple in our medicine cabinet, but that goop is loaded with toxic chemicals. The good news is there’s always a natural alternative to just about every malady your little might encounter. This rub is no exception. It’s made with Cypress and Lavender essential oils create a safe, soothing blend that will help your young guns to relax and promote sleep, and makes a great gift for the mamas in your life. TRUST ME – they will thank you when (not if!) the time comes and they’re dying for some shut-eye! Get the recipe here.

What are dryer balls and how do they work?  Add a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil to a dryer ball- use 3 dryer balls for small loads and 5-6 balls for large loads.  Dryer balls help reduce drying time and static- all without the toxic chemicals found in most dryer sheets.  Plus dryer balls are reusable; one set lasts for years.  Wouldn’t these make great gifts for your oily friends and team members?  Buy premium extra-large dryer balls at a great price here or find instructions for making your own dryer balls here

In my 5ml headache roller I use: 7 drops each of Panaway, Pepermint and Frankincense. I have daily migraines and this has helped reduce the need for migraine meds to just a couple times a month. I start rolling on my forehead, temples and back of my head/neck area as soon as I feel pain. I use every couple of hours as needed! Just double the amount of drops for each and fill with your carrier oil ( I use fractionated coconut oil)!

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.

Pour almost 2 ounces of your Castor Oil into your dropper bottle. Add your essential oils. Put on dropper lid and shake bottle. Apply to your scalp each morning and massage into scalp. Wait 20 minutes and then wash hair. You can also apply before bed. If you want to apply more frequently without an oil feel, you can make the serum using almost 2 ounces of distilled water and 1 teaspoon of witch hazel instead of the castor oil.
We recently bought essential oil aroma diffuser, so husband looked for essential oil. He found this set! Very satisfied with these various kinds of essential oils. I love it! We tried 3 of these already, lemon grass, eucalyptus and lavender. One of our favorite is the eucalyptus, very helpful and beneficial to my husband when he got cough and colds past few days. I always turn on our humidifier so he can get relaxed.
