DIY Recipe of the Week {Chemical Free Home}

What's in your cabinets?   

Why am I passionate about getting the yuck out of my home?  Because I don't want to be in constant pain because my Endo is flaring up.  I know, it's pretty selfish, but it's the catalyst for change in my home.  For me, essential oils are another rug on my Healthy Living Ladder.  It's something that I'm choosing to do to help my family.

Did you know that 26 seconds after exposure that chemicals are found in measurable amounts in the human body?    

Did you know that the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health studied 2,983 ingredients in our products at home—and found 884 toxic ingredients? 


I've shared many times that if Young Living made a Thieves body care line, I'd buy it!  My love of Thieves is no secret.  But, since they don't make a body care line, I make my own.  I've started with this DIY Body Wash recipe and will be modifying a shampoo recipe soon.  Now, you can use whatever EO's you like, I prefer Thieves - BECAUSE IT SMELLS AMAZING!

DIY BODY WASH


This is a Cococunt Oil and Honey recipe that I found over and DIY Remedies and modified to my liking.  You can learn more about each ingredient by clicking over to their site.  I'm going to share the adapted recipe here.  

  • 1/4 cup of Fractioned Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
  • 1/4 cup of Raw Honey
  • 10 drops of Thieves Essential Oil Blend (or your favorite essential oils)

Mix all together and make sure that the raw honey is incorporated well. 

  • 1/2 cup of Dr. Bronner's unscented liquid castile soap

Mix into the rest of the mixture

Pour mixture into a bottle of your choice for regular use (I just recycle old pump bottles, but you can get creative if you want).

One word of caution - please, please, please make sure that you shake the mixture prior to use.  Additionally, keep out of direct sunlight and make sure that the cap is tightly secured.  Castile soap, by itself, is known to thicken when exposed to direct sunlight and excess air.
