3 DIY RECIPES FOR CHRISTMAS
This post is contributed by One Drop member – Kaye Ng.
There is so much DIY you can do with your essential oils. Best of all, it’s not just making them for fun, but when you make your own DIYs, you can ensure that you are not adding any toxic chemicals into your products! This ensures that they are safe for everyone around you and will not cause problems in your system.
Here are 3 easy DIYs you can do:
🎄Holiday Joy Perfume
- 20 drops Peppermint
- 20 drops Frankincense
- 30 drops Cedarwood
- 5-ounce glass spray bottle
Mix all the oils together. After, add 4 ounces of vodka. Mix it well. After that, place the bottle in a cool dark place for several days (or up to several weeks) to let the scent develop. This allows the alcohol scent to fade and the scent of the essential oils to develop and intensify.
🎄Festive Sugar Scrub
- 6 drops Peppermint
- 2 drops Orange
- 2 drops Pine
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1/4 cup Jojoba Oil or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- Glass Jar
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and place into the jar. To use, scoop out a small amount and rub onto desired areas for exfoliating action.
🎄Minty Lip Balm
- 10 drops Peppermint
- 2 tablespoons of Jojoba Oil or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- 2 teaspoons Beeswax Pellets
- 1/4 oz Glass Jars or Lip Gloss Containers
Melt beeswax and coconut oil together using a double broiler method: Place both ingredients into a glass Pyrex measuring cup and place the measuring cup into a pan with gently boiling water. Stir with a popsicle stick until melted. Once melted, remove from heat and mix in drops of essential oil. The mixture will harden very quickly so be fast and make sure you have everythig on hand. Pour evenly into as many lip balm containers as needed. You might need up to 5 containers. Once cooled completely, apply onto your lips.
