Homemade Bug Spray

Happy Wednesday everybody!

Today I want to share a recipe for making home made bug spray that’s chemical free…..

You will need:

2 oz of either Frankincense hydrosol OR filtered water

16 drops of Patchouli Essential Oil

10 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil

4 drops Spikenard Essential Oil

That’s it!  Pour hydrosol OR water into 2 oz. glass spray bottle, add all the drops, put the lid on, make a label and presto, you’re done!  Took all of 3 1/2 minutes to make!

Here’s a video I made for it…..

There are other essential oils you can try instead of these, like eucalyptus, opopanax, juniper and you can also use peppermint hydrosol instead of frankincense.  This recipe is just one of many ways to utilize ways to use essential oils!

Enjoy!

Until next time!  Have a happy healthy day!!! 🙂

Eucalyptus Shower disks

Happy Sunday everybody!!!

I’ve been wanting to try to do this for a while, and it was soooo easy and took less than 10 minutes so I thought I’d share!

What you need:  glass bowl, fork, muffin pan or candy molds, air tight container, plastic wrap.

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups Baking Soda

2 Tbsp. Arrowroot powder OR cornstarch

2 Tbsp. and 1 Tsp. Water

3/4 tsp. Eucalyptus Essential oil (120 drops) or a smidge more

1/2 tsp. Peppermint Essential Oil

Mix ingredients together really really realllllllllllllllllly well, then scoop into muffin pan/tin (or candy molds) and press down really well.  Cover and let dry overnight.  Place in airtight container and use whenever it strikes your fancy!  🙂  Don’t place directly under the water or it’ll go away really fast, so off to the side so it melts slowly is best.

Here’s the video, with my assistant Torch and extra vocals from his sister Sassy:

Annnnd there ya go!  Until next time!  Have a Happy Healthy Day!!!

Enjoy!!!

 

Homemade Vapor Rub

Happy New Year everybody!

I hope you’re all doing wonderfully!  I decided to make a couple of videos to share how to make home made vapor rub.  It took me less than 20 minutes to make, so I can say it’s super easy to make!!

All you need is:

8 oz. of oil (olive, almond, or whatever carrier oil you prefer – I used organic Almond oil).

1 oz. beeswax  (I used the pellets)

1 tsp. menthol crystals

10 drops rosemary oil

20 drops eucalyptus oil

I purchased all my ingredients from www.mountainroseherbs.com, one of my favorite places to buy products.  This is also their recipe that I’m using.

In a double boiler I heated the oil and added the beeswax.  I heated until the beeswax was melted.  I added the menthol crystals and oils.  Stirred until the crystals melted and poured into tins.

Here are the videos:

I hope you’ll not only enjoy watching, I hope you’ll go and make some too!

Until next time!  Have a happy healthy day!!! 😀
