Bath Bombs with Essential Oils-Homemade Christmas Gift idea

Just got this great Christmas gift idea from a friend. 
My friend Brandi writes: "Hey I made these bath bombs and used DoTerra oils (Serenity and Peppermint), gave them as gifts and were a HUGE hit. Plus I tried them and they feel amazing in the water. I keep thinking that you need a copy of the recipe in case you have a use for it. You may already have something similar but thought I would shoot it over to you just in case. Giving more of them this holiday to my family. :-) "

Thank you Brandi! I decided that we all need a copy of this great idea!  Enjoy :)

Bath Bombs
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup Corn Starch
1/4 cup Oats, that have been ground in blender (optional)
2 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
3/4 tbsp Water
1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Essential Oil (Lavender, Peppermint, Frankincense something to promote relaxing with a nice aroma)
1/4 tsp Vitamin E oil (antioxidant which preserves the oils)
1/4 teaspoon Borax (an emulsifier)
Witch Hazel in spray bottle (small amount)
Mix first 3 (and oats if using)  ingredients in medium  bowl until smooth.In separate bowl, whisk olive oil, water, essential oils, vitamin e, and borax until mixture has thickened slightly and is smooth. Drizzle over dry ingredients and mix with your hands thoroughly. Lightly spray mixture with witch hazel 2-3 times. The mixture should start to hold together when pressed in your hand (like fine sand). If it is not, then spray more witch hazel and mix until mixture hold together.
Sprinkle a few oats in the top of molds then firmly press the mixture into the molds. Candy molds work great. You could also use small cupcake tins (do not fill to top) or something you have around the house that works for a "mold". Once complete, allow to harden for 24 hours. This time is needed as if you do not the bath bombs will break apart. This make about 16) 1 1/2 inch bath bombs.

Slim & Sassy Skinny Wrap

Slim & Sassy Body Wrap!!

I recently came across this on the doTERRA Diamond Club site. It was too great to not share!  Enjoy!

UPDATE: I recently read a suggestion that I thought beneficial... instead of using plastic wrap made of who knows what...use muslin cloth.

I got the recipe from Becky Cox.
5-10 drops S&S
1 tsp FCO.
Combine the two ingredients and rub on "problem area" ( Make sure it is completely absorbed ) then wrap area with regular old plastic wrap! :) Leave on for 20 minutes to as long as the person would like! It detoxes! Its running like wildfire on my team! I have a gal who l lost 4 inches from her first wrap! I teach the regular class intro, and while I am teaching I have a few IPC's wrapping new guests! That way they are feeling it tingle and working as I teach about essential oils. Then I focus on the individual ingredients found in Slim and Sassy and the benefits that they are receiving on top of inch loss! * just remi…

Roller Bottle Remedies

Lately, I have really enjoyed using different roller bottle recipes on myself & my kids. They make oil use quick & easy and less messy. You know the experience, where you are so excited that your kids are taking care of their own health, yet they are dripping and dropping oil clumsily all over the place :) 
Here are some great roller bottle solutions:

Bloody Nose Remedy with Essential Oils

Yesterday my daughter Elsie got a really bad bloody nose.  In fact, it kinda freaked me out.  Usually, when one of my kids gets a nose bleed it doesn't last long-a tissue later and it is all cleared up.  With Elsie, she was literally dripping for about 5 minutes from both nose holes. Yuck!  After 5 minutes with no stopping in site, my mom energy kicked in and sent my to my wonderful "Modern Essentials" book! 

For nose bleeds: Combine 2 drops cypress, 1 drop helichrysum, and 2 dropslemon in 8 oz. (1 cup) ice water.  Soak a cloth in the water, and apply the cloth to nose and back of neck. I am here to report that it worked! From the time it took me to take my son to scouts and back it had completely stopped without another occurance! Wahoo!

Also, since her clothes were covered with the red stuff, I quickly put them into a bucket of cold water and a tbsp. of the new On Guard Cleaner Concentrate. After a wash...stain free clothes.
