17 ways I saved money when I switched to essential oils

Thieves Laundry detergent: After comparing this to the other huge name brand we’d use, the results was clear. Using this hack we saved money, had healthier laundry, and were kinder to our planet

  • $0.19 a load instead of $0.25 because every little saving counts
  • It didn’t cause any eczema flare ups in my kids which is a huge win
  • Doesn’t contain any of the harmful toxins other brands do
  • I like being kind to our planet

Foaming hand soap: You wouldn’t think this would be a big money saver but for the average family of four, it’s over $66 savings every year.

In an empty foaming hand soap bottle, fill it up 3/4 with water

Add 1 tbsp liquid castille soap (I use the unscented Dr. Bronner’s in the light blue bottle)

Add 8 – 10 drops of Thieves essential oil blend

Optional: 1 tsp carrier oil for moisturizing properties

Face Serum: I don’t know if you’re like me, but I had horrible skin. Constant breakouts, milia, combination skin with oily and dry patches, blackheads. I was always ashamed of my skin. Never wore make up because it looked cakey. Every spa visit left me spending an extra $300 on their magical creams. They never worked. When I found the perfect recipe for my skin, I shared it with anyone who would listen. It has the same base of Lavender, Frankincense and Copaiba, but I have some extra stuff that goes in there.

Get in touch with me if you want to know what I jack my serum up with that worked best. I’ve got a super cool book to help you find your magic serum.

This serum costs about $15 to make. Far cry from the $150++ it usually would. And, it works.

Kids Play Dough: My kids love to play with this stuff! Best part is, I can make it at home, and I add essential oils into it so it’s a calming activity.

Add: 10 drops of Stress Away, 3 cups of flour, 3 cups of water, 1 cup of salt, 3 tbsp of vegetable oil, 1 tbsp cream of tartar, natural food coloring.

Mix it all together (except the essential oils) in a glass bowl. Pour it all into a frying pan and stir over low heat until the play dough isn’t sticky anymore. Place it on a sheet of wax paper to let it cool down. Add Stress Away to the play dough. Store in an airtight container. You may need to add a few more drops of essential oil when it wears off.

It’s awesome for sensory play.
