This DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub will take you about 5 mins to mix up, uses just three main ingredients and is the PERFECT gift for the holidays!DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub Ingredients:(contains affiliate links)1 jar-I used a 4"Dia. x 4"H red clamp lid glass canister from Cost Plus World Market. The measuring spoons are adorable but certainly not essential. You can get them here. 2 cups RAW Sugar-I used the brand Sugar in the Raw 3/4 cup FRACTIONATED Coconut Oil-this is the kind stable in the liquid form. 20 drops Peppermint Essential Oil OR 1 tbsp Peppermint Extract.

Apps For Essential Oil Users

These apps for oil users look great. I really need a better way to keep all my oily stuff organized on my phone.

Are you an oil freak like me? Can't stand to be out of touch with ways to use your oils or manage your oily business? These apps will help you keep on oiling while you are on the go.Ref Guide for Essential Oils This app works equally as well for both  Apple and Android. It's made by Abundant Health and closely mimics the information provided in the Essential Oils Pocket Reference book. While the book is a bit awkward to carry around with you this app makes it perfect for you to look up anything you need to know about your oils while you are on the soccer field. I really like that you can look up specific symptoms and find oils that may help. Very well organized and easy to use. Worth the price especially if you are choosing this over a book! I really love this because if I am especially busy (and what working mom isn't?) and someone asks me an oily question that I need to research I can look it up here and send a quick screenshot to answer the question.  Essential Oil Go-To Guide I have not had a lot of time to play with this one but it made quite an impression on people at Convention this summer as it's arrival has been anxiously awaited. The big draw here? It is ...

Here is what you will need: DIY Candy Corn Soap IngredientsSoap Colorant Olive Oil Soap Base Goats Milk Base silicone soap mold Young Living Essential Oils- for this I used a combination of Stress Away, Nutmeg and Cinnamon Bark (so that it had a Snickerdoodle scent) but you could do this just as easily with Thieves (like in this How To Make Soap For Kids tutorial)DIY Candy Corn Soap Instructions: You need to make this soap in 3 stages (for each of the colored layers) and plan time in between for each layer to cool. The actually time to make the project is about 25 minutes but add your drying time into that when planning. This recipe will yield two bars. Please ...
