I have read 2 great articles this week which not only really resonated with me but I feel like everyone should read them. So I thought I would do a blog about my experience and a chance to share these 2 other articles.
How I use Tea Tree Essential Oil in my House
Everyone I talk to about Tea Tress essential oil know I am no fan of the smell. That came about from when I was a teen trying to use not very good stinky probably not even pure Tea Tree on my skin. Now that I'm a bit older and wiser I'm not only using 100% pure Tea Tree but very high quality which in turn not only works better but the side therapeutic benefits too.
Today I have my very good friend and excellent writer blogger of essential oils Kate of Rebel Essential. She wrote a blog that I would like to share with you on her love of Citrus Bliss which a great and important warning at the end of the blog.
“Why does it smell like creamsicles in here!?!?”
This is a common question around these parts as we are quite fond of diffusing doTERRA’s Citrus Bliss oil blend. It does, quite exactly, smell like a creamsicle!
What is better then making a gift for someone that you made or perhaps a gift for yourself? Making your own bath salts is not only super easy but makes a nice gift which you can make as plain or fancy as you like.
I love making this foaming hand soap, not only is it super easy and takes about 3 minutes to make but using all natural ingredients means much safer for your family. You can add any essential oils you like, citrus are okay since you are rinsing them off with the soap enough to not to cause photo-sensitivity. I like to use a protective blend for obvious reasons and lemons since I have dirty greasy little boys playing in the dirt. Sometimes I will make one with a pretty smell such as lavender or ylang ylang for our bathroom upstairs to use before bedtime. You can use 2 tbsp or 3 tbsp of the castile soap depending on how soapy you like it. You can purchase foaming hand pumps here or reuse old ones. The first time I made this I was so proud of myself but it was also so easy, when my husband used it he thought I bought it since it was so good. I take that as a big compliment.
