Lemon Meringue Essential Oil Lip Balm Recipe

How to make an easy lemon meringue lip balm recipe.  This recipe and materials is included in the Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box Starter Box. How many lip balms do you have?  I have one in the car, one in my purse, one beside my bed, one in my desk drawer, and at least two more floating around the house or in a pocket. When I saw this lemon meringue essential oil lip balm recipe in the Simply Earth Essential Oil Starter Box, I was so excited.  I love bakery scented lip balms. I'm not a huge fan of lemon, but this sounded really good.  And it is so yummy smelling! This recipes makes two lip balms.  One for your purse and one for beside your bed.  Or give one to a friend. I'll keep your secret if you want to keep them both for yourself.  I wouldn't blame you.

Glow in the Dark Bath Bomb Recipe

How to make glow in the dark bath bombs with skin safe glow in the dark powder.  These fun bath bombs have a tie dye effect with glow in the dark mica and also have glow in the dark glitter. My daughter loves bath bombs.  She's always asking me to make fun new products with different colors and additives.  I found some skin safe glow in the dark powder, and of course we had to add that to bath bombs! She wanted a lot of colors, so we made them a fun tie dye effect with several colors.  I guess this is a tie dye bath bomb tutorial and a glow in a dark bath bomb tutorial in one. Dakota has dry skin, so I added some coconut oil.  This helps moisturize her skin and help them stick together better. Glow in the Dark Bath Bombs Baking Soda and Citric Acid Baking soda and citric acid are the main ingredients in this glow in the dark bath bomb recipe.  When they get wet with water, they create a chemical reaction that releases a harmless gas and creates fizzing in the w

Rose Milk Bath Tea Recipe for Dry Skin

How to make a rose milk bath tea recipe.  This easy DIY bath recipe makes a great gift or keep it for yourself.  It helps soothe and moisturize dry skin, and the essential oil blend is relaxing.  It's the end of January in Ohio, and winter still hasn't hit hard.  It's coming.  I know it is. Even without the freezing temperatures, my skin is still having fits.  It's dry, itchy, and dull already.  I'm using lotions and oils, but I wanted something to soak in to bring more relief. Since Valentine's Day is close, I decided to make a rose milk bath tea recipe.  Roses are excellent for dry skin.  Each ingredient in this easy recipe was selected for its benefits for dry skin and even eczema. I used an essential oil blend called Tranquility.  It's calming and has a wonderful scent for this tub tea recipe.

Valentine's Day Wax Air Freshener DIY With Essential Oils

How to make a wax air freshener with beeswax, soy wax, and essential oils.  I added dried flowers and used a Valentine's Day essential oil to make them for Valentine's Day.  These can be set in a dish for a pretty air freshener or used in a drawer for a beautiful natural air freshener. Although we don't celebrate Valentine's Day by spending a lot of money on gifts, I do like the cutesy crafts for the holiday.  Christmas is over, and the house seems so bare without having any decorations. Valentine's Day is just fun with pink and purple and fun scents.  I'm over the heavier fall and winter scents and ready to move to light and fun scents in the house. Before Christmas, I made some wax air fresheners with fall and winter scents.  This time I used a fun Valentine's Day essential oil blend to make a wax air freshener DIY with essential oils. I added some dried flowers just to make them pretty.  This is optional, but I love how they turned out!

Make your home smell amazing this Valentine's Day with this easy potpourri with essential oils DIY craft.  Use essential oil blends for Valentine's Day for the perfect aromatherapy combination for your taste and needs. I haven't decorated for Valentine's Day in several years.  We need a little bit to de-Christmas, and then we have a January birthday and a February birthday.  Valentine's Day seems to get lost in birthday season. This year, I decided to do some fun DIY projects.  I wanted to make a natural air freshener with a fun Valentine's Day scent. I found these adorable clear plastic hearts, so I used them to hold the potpourri.  They hang, so you can use them in the closet or anywhere else. I have one hanging on the cabinet in the bathroom.  I also stuck one in my dresser drawer to freshen my sweaters this winter.

Derma E Skin Care Products Reviews

Learn more about Derma E skin care products and my reviews of several of their most popular products.  Derma E is a natural skin care brand and one of my favorite natural, cruelty free beauty brands. It's been a while since I reviewed some skin care products, so I wanted to share some new goodies that Derma E sent me recently. I've had a longstanding relationship with Derma E.  They were one of the first brands to sponsor a post here at Everything Pretty, and I fell in love with their skin care products way back then. Although this post isn't sponsored, they did send me these products to try.  They are one of my favorite skin care brands and the one I reach for most often. I do make a lot of skin care products, but I don't delve into making my own cleansers and moisturizers because it's a delicate balance of ingredients, emulsifers, and preservatives. I'm glad that there are companies like Derma E who have natural and cruelty free products that really

26 Home Remedies for Cold and Cough

Get relief from your symptoms with these home remedies for cold and cough.  These easy recipes use herbs and essential oils to help you feel better naturally. It's the season for colds and coughs.  We stayed healthy over Christmas break, but I had two sick kids the week before Christmas and now I have a sick husband. When we are sick, I look to both medicines and home remedies for cold and cough.  I'm not opposed to taking over the counter medications or seeing the doctor, but I think home remedies have their place. I live in a rural area.  It's not just a quick trip to the store to get medicines.  I try to stay stocked up on cold, fever, and cough medications, but we do run out. It never fails that someone starts with symptoms Friday night through Sunday.  We are very limited for immediate care in my area.  Both options are more than half an hour each way and close early on weekends. Sometimes over the counter medications don't give me enough symptom relief
