Have you ever thought of making your own health and beauty products? It’s really much easier than you think ~ not only does it afford you the opportunity to control what goes on your body.. it’s relatively inexpensive.
Here’s a shocker: the stuff you put on your skin is just as important as the stuff you put in your mouth.
Your skin is the largest organ in your body – it’s also the most porous and will absorb whatever you put on it. That’s why it’s important to pay close attention to the ingredients that make up your favorite skin care products.
If the products you use daily contain harmful ingredients such as harsh, toxic chemicals, colors, and fragrances, those ingredients make their way those ingredients make their way into your body, your blood and lymphatic system. The majority of mainstream body care products contain a cocktail of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens, and irritants. (Src)

All that aside, here are 25 DIY’s with Essential Oils:
There are SO many oils out there – but we love Young Living Essential Oils specifically because they have a transparency that nobody else quite has.
