DIY With Essential Oils

I love making my own stuff, especially with essential oils!  Essential oils have so many great properties, and I love seeing what they can do to help my day to day life.  Here are two things I've made recently that I thought you might be interested in. 

The first thing I'd like to share is a rollerball blend that I use to help me sleep at night.

I mixed lavender oil, Eden's Garden Relaxation blend, and Eden's Garden Four Thieves blend with Sweet Almond Oil.  I reused a rollerball bottle I had and kept that label.  Every time I make this blend I change things up a little, but generally, I add about 8 or 9 drops each of Relaxation and lavender oil, and one or two drops of Four Thieves, then fill the rest with sweet almond oil in a 10ml rollerball.  Every night, I apply this blend to the bottom of my feet and sometimes to the back of my neck.

The next idea I'd like to share is DIY Poo-Pourri.  The idea behind this product is to spray it in the toilet prior to going poo... and supposedly no one will know.  I've made this as a funny gift, but it actually works, and I've had people request I make them more!

I got the recipe from here.  This recipe makes a few bottles, which is perfect for gifts or multiple bathrooms.  I've made this spray with many different blends of essential oils, it's fun to play around to come up with different combinations.  The last time I made this, I used a blend of grapefruit, bergamot, and lemongrass. 

What kind of DIY projects do you like to make?  Would you ever use an item like Poo-Pourri?

Alaskan Road Trip

A couple months ago my sister and I took a roadtrip to Seward, Alaska.  We took many pictures and I wanted to share them ALL with you!  Instead, I chose five to share.  The drive was absolutely beautiful, and we had beautiful weather the whole way.  Thank you sis for such an awesome weekend!

Have you been to Alaska?
