Sunburn Issues

The most viewed posts for summer topics are my sunburn spray and sunburn cream entries. With these results from my sunburn cream, I can see why! Just one application overnight amazed not only myself, but everyone I showed. I have this obsession with showing EVERYONE. Sorry, friends and family.

Bikinis and Stretch Marks

My stretch mark post was a super popular post too. I used my frankincense and rose scrub for just four days for these results. I am happy to say that this summer I have been able to wear a bikini and feel comfortable in my own skin.

Maintaining/Losing Weight and Kicking Sugar Cravings

My personal sugar addiction story caught people’s attention. This summer, make it your goal to be healthy and happy with your body. Essential oils are a great help and I am so glad I found ones that work for me!

Keeping Bugs Away

Spiders are a big problem in my area come summertime, so I use a peppermint and water combination to shoo them away. So far, we’ve only had one spider enter our house, and that’s because I forgot to spray for a week or two. This post also talks about keeping misquitos away for water and campfire fun.

Hydration

My last post was about the importance of hydration and how I make sure that I am drinking enough water. This is a must read! I cannot stress the importance of water enough. Making it fun is a great way to keep up this summer.

Shaving and Keeping Skin Soft

I am in LOVE with scrubs. They’re super easy to make and my skin is left feeling soft and beautiful, plus my shaves last much longer. I love my rose petal and frankincense scrub, but my newest favorite is my orange and vanilla creamsicle scrub. Can you say yum?!

Berry Stains

Summer is the season of wonderful berries and terrible carpet stains. Thankfully, I have thieves cleaner to save my house.

Those are the summer favorite so far! Keep checking back for more summertime oil posts coming soon.

Spider & Misquito Season is Almost Here

Spider & Misquito Season is Almost Here

spiders

I, like many others, hate spiders. I don’t know what it is about them, but they give me the chills and I prefer for them to not make my home into their home. We moved into a house in what I refer to as a “forest land”. There are woods and trees surrounding every aspect of our living space and just about every bug you can think of lives next to us. Summer is coming and while I love the sun, I am just not ready to share my home. How do I combat all those bugs?

peppermint

Peppermint. That’s it, just peppermint. Not nasty chemicals that my daughter might get into, just good ol’ peppermint essential oil. I diffuse it all the time to help wake me up, so that helps it spread throughout my house, but I also mix 10 drops of it with 8 oz of water and spray it around my house, focusing on the door area and corners. So far, no spiders have made it into this peppermint filled home.

bug fighting spray

For an extra bonus to ensure that other types of bugs don’t weasel their way in, I like to spray a mixture of 10 drops each peppermint, purification, and thieves, along with 4 oz of water and 4 oz of witch hazel. This is great for mosquitos. Use this when sitting around a campfire or a trip to the lake too! It’s a great and child safe alternative to chemical filled bug repellent.
