easy DIY’s

I’m so excited to talk to you about some easy DIY’s today. If you search online you will find a plethora of recipes and concoctions to get you going. I’m going to share just a few today to help you get inspired to try creating your own goodies for around the house. Let’s get started! The first is my Calming Bath Soak. So easy!

Some other great pampering DIY’s are:
Lotion Bar | Hair Mask | Body Butter | Lavender Oatmeal Bath Soak

How about DIY’s for travel? I’ve got you covered there too. I make this bed spray for when I travel. It is a blend of relaxing oils to help you sleep as well as oils that are beneficial when you’re in a bed that’s not your own. I will say, this bottle isn’t quite large enough so now I make it in a larger spray bottle for travel. I also like to take this sleepy roller with me!…

It’s time to start making your DIY Christmas gifts! These are SUPER easy, inexpensive and something everyone can use!

Calming Bath Soak:
Combine 4c epsom salt, 1c baking soda and 25 drops lavender in a bowl. Let it sit for a few minutes for the lavender to soak into the epsom salt. Take 10 baggies (mine are 3×5″ and fit perfectly) and put 1/2c of the mixture in each baggie. Make a cute label with some scrapbook paper and you’re all set!…

DIY deodorant

Deodorant. Something that everyone needs and something that can be filled with lots of harmful ingredients like aluminum which has been linked to breast cancer. Making your own deodorant is really easy and very inexpensive. The one real thing that you have to get used to with this recipe is that you apply the deodorant with your fingers – so unlike the deodorant that you get from the store. Once you mentally get past that, this deodorant works wonderfully.

You only need four ingredients for this deodorant:
1/3c coconut oil (softened is best)
1/4c arrowroot powder
1/4c baking soda
1/4tsp essential oils (I used equal parts of lemongrass, lavender and tea tree)…

homemade bath salts

IMG_4592A few weeks ago I did a make & take at my house with a few friends. We made diffuser pendants, bath salts & sugar scrub. Today I want to share with you how to make an easy bath salt that is perfect for gift giving! It’s not too late to whip some of these up for gifts!

easy eye makeup remover

I’ve got another great coconut oil recipe for you today and this one also has three ingredients {just like the coconut oil hair spray). Today I’m sharing the super easy makeup remover. Let’s get started!

makeup-remover

Ingredients:
1T fractionated coconut oil
3 drops tear-free shampoo
4oz water

Combine ingredients, shake gently before using. Apply to a cotton ball to remove your eye makeup.
Doesn’t need rinsed but feel free to rinse if you want!

For me, I do rinse my face because I wear contacts. It does a good job at getting off my waterproof mascara, but you might have to adjust your recipe to use more or less coconut oil depending on how well it works for you. If you need more power to get your makeup off add a teaspoon or so of more coconut oil. Let me know what you think!
