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
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.
