DIY Bug Spray For Your Home


Bugs...When I see one in my home, I want it OUT! Don't get me wrong I think they're an important part of the environment (except for mosquitos, why do they exist?) and I wish no harm onto them, but get them out of my home please. Bugs, you live outside while I live inside. Anyway, I noticed some little spiders and silverfish in my home and decided to make an all natural bug spray. This recipe is pet and child friendly too (plus it smells pretty fabulous). It just involves water and some basic essential oils! This blend of essential oils will drive most critters away :)

Ingredients:

Distilled Water
Peppermint Oil
Lavender Oil
Leamon Oil or Extract

DIY Brightening Body Scrub for Dry Skin and Stretch Marks


Summer is here and that means it's more important than EVER to take care of your skin. If you want your skin to glow and feel silky smooth I suggest regularly exfoliating. Exfoliating often will also reduce the appearance of blemishes and stretch marks. I decided to whip up a quick and fantastic smelling body scrub that you can use on your arms, legs, face, knees, elbows and feet. You can use this frequently, 2-3 a week!

 Ingredients:


  • 1/2 Cup Castor Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 TBSP Rice Powder
  • 1 tsp Citric Acid
  • 10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil

How to Make Body Mist



Of course it's always great to wear a nice outfit, BUT smelling fantastic really puts the icing on the cake! I love perfumes and I've made some (see video at the end of the post), but sometimes I like to wear body sprays too. Body sprays don't last as long as perfume and they generally have a less potent smell. Check out this EASY DIY body spray recipe you can make at home without a bunch of chemicals you can't even pronounce :)

Ingredients:
7 TBSP Distilled Water
1 TBSP Vodka or Witch Hazel
1/4 tsp Vegetable Glycerine (optional, adds moisture and a nice glow to the skin)
15-20 drops Essential Oils (See the amazing fresh scented combo I used in the video below)
