DIY Citronella Candles

DIY Citronella Candles

Have you caught on to a theme with me? I HATE bugs, and they LOVE me. Which is why I love my DIY bug spray, homemade bug repellent diffuser bracelets, and now DIY Citronella Candles! When we started using Young Living Essential Oils a couple of years ago, we also cut out candles. It was super hard because I love the smell of candles, but they are filled with carcinogens. Did you know the toxins released from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes? No, thank you. In addition, being so much...

Easy Bug Deterrent with Essential Oils!

You know who loves me? More than anyone else? BUGS. They love me LOTS. We’re outside a lot in the spring and summer with the kids and after 5 minutes and OTC bug spray, I am covered in bug bites. Big ones. Meanwhile, Ethan, who is sitting right next to me is bug-free, living the good life. Last summer I stopped going outside sometimes because I was so miserable. Because you know its not just the momentary bite, its the itching and subsequent scratching until they bleed in the middle of the night. Now, I really...

DIY Diffuser Bracelet: Deter Mosquitoes Naturally

You know what I hate? Bugs. All of them. Okay, I can tolerate sweet little lady bugs and snuggle bugs, aka my kids, who I more than tolerate <3. But other than that, they can leave me alone. For real. But that usually isn’t the case. In fact, they seem to love me more than most. I have been using my Young Living Essential Oils to deter mosquitoes for a couple of years now and with lots of success. But this year, I thought adding them to my cute DIY diffuser bracelet would be the perfect solution for longer...

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.

Vintage Shaving Kit for Men!

This is my post but really, it’s Ethan’s baby! About a year ago, he started researching shaving with an double-edged safety razor. From there and a little help from me, it snow balled into the perfect vintage shaving kit for men. 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,...
