Truth be told, when was pregnant with my second daughter, my skin went haywire – I was a dried, red, itchy, flaky mess. ON my face.  It was horrible. Fortunately, I concocted an amazing blend of oils that literally transformed my dull complexion into glowing. I still use it every single day {and my mom swears by it too}. Frankincense gives this blend an extra boost of anti-aging awesomeness, cause well, I’m not getting any younger.  Get the recipe here.   


No time for baths, but love the aromatherapy benefits of bath bombs? Try shower melts!  They’re a great way to add aromatherapy to your shower!  Shower steamers are really very easy to make and only take a few ingredients.  The basic recipe is 1 cup baking soda , 1/3 cup distilled water, and 25 drops essential oil.  Yep, the recipe is very simple.  I think the really fun part is choosing which fun shape you want to make and which essential oil blends to use.  Find instructions here
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. 
For that special man in your life, ditch the Barbasol and give the gift of this soothing and uplifting shaving cream. Like many other personal care products, commercial shaving cream has parabens and artificial fragrances – which can be very harmful to our health. This blend contains Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Lavender. Get the recipe here and toss in a re-usable 4 ounce mason jar like this one.

These essential oils smell so good and they work wonderful! I won't order any other kind, these work great in your projects and are wonderful for medicinal purposes! I had a chance to use the tea tree oil for a home remedy and it worked in 1 treatment and I feel so much better! I've made bath bombs & lip balm and they are fabulous so much so I am throwing away all my other essential oils! Nothing but Woolzies for me!
This is a nice looking unit that blends with any decor. We needed something to add humidity to our dry Colorado air and to diffuse essential oils that aid in sleeping. After a week of use, I would say...so far, so good! Our sinuses feel less dry and sleep has been more restful, even though my husband has sleep apnea and often struggles with his CPAP.
