Handmade Holiday: DIY Hand Warmers with Essential Oils

These DIY Hand Warmers with Essential Oils are the perfect Homemade Holiday gift as the cold approaches (or maybe it has already found you)! They are inexpensive, easy to make even for this novice sewer and use supplies found in most homes. I made a bunch for myself and some friends, then saw a friend at the bus stop who made one for her daughter to hold in the cold.

He still loves these recipes for their smooth close shave and the reduction of razor burn and irritation. A Good Way to Shave a Buck Ethan, like me, hates spending a crazy amount of money on disposable blades, but there aren’t lots of cheaper alternatives out there, especially...

DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace

I love my Young Living Essential Oils. Seriously, I’m a bit of a junkie. I’ve made a few DIY Essential Oil Necklaces over the past year using leather in lockets. But recently, a friend of a friend, Erin heard that you can use lava beads to diffuse oils. I was a bit skeptical at first. But honestly, the lava beads worked even better than leather! All credit goes to Erin. I will forever be grateful for the diffusing jewelry possibilities that are now open to me! woot.  New necklace, new glasses,...

Homemade Aromatherapy Playdough & The Teal Pumpkin Project!

This is our second year participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project! Have you heard about this? Promoted by FARE, Food Allergy Research & Education, the idea is to paint a pumpkin teal and put it on your porch to signal Trick or Treaters that your home is providing non-food/candy options for kids that have food allergies.
