Snowman Essential Oil Air Freshener

Christmas is the perfect time to get the whole family together and make really fun crafts to give. I found this Snowman Essential Oil Air Freshenerย from Designs by Miss Mandeeย and I just knew it would be a big hit!

This time of year is a great time to teach our kids about giving and not just getting what is on their own Christmas list – plus if your kids are anything like mine… they LOVE craft time! My girls love it when they can make something and give it to someone they love.

One reason this idea stuck out to me is because we love using essential oils to freshen our whole house naturally. About 10 years ago, we started making steps to live a more natural life… and that started with eating whole foods and quickly moved to using essential oils to remove some chemicals and toxins from our home (for cleaning and freshening). ย Plus, Essential Oils also can make really great DIY gifts just in time for Christmas and these Snowman Air Fresheners were really fun to make (plus the girls got to practice their cutting skills). read more

Christmas is just around the corner, so I wanted to share this simple DIY Eucalyptus Bath Salt recipe that makes a great gift to give or to make for yourself.

For best results you want to soak for at least 20 minutes and best results would be for 40 minutes.

Epsom Salts

We chose Epsom salts because of the extra benefits of magnesium. When I was pregnant, I developed a deficiency in magnesium and my midwife told me to start taking epsom salt baths 3x a week to help. They worked so well – I was amazed! I was having trouble sleeping and restless leg syndrome (both common in pregnancy) and the baths helped so much. read more
