Glowing face serum

Glowing face serum

This is one of my absolute favourite DIY recipes to make. Not only is it absolutely amazing for your skin and supports your emotions, but it’s also so so cost-effective, under $8 for this recipe and would easily last 2 months using this both morning and night!

You also know exactly what’s in it, all without nasty synthetic chemicals which play havoc with your endocrine system which produces hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things.

Natural deodorant paste

Natural deodorant paste

Commercial deodorants are usually the culprit of some very dangerous and toxic chemicals called Aluminum compounds which have been linked to a number of cancers, in particular breast cancer as you roll it on so close to...you guessed it...your breasts! Let's take a closer look.

They block up the sweat ducts and temporarily stop the flow of sweat limiting your ability to detoxify, and they can also be absorbed by your skin and mimic estrogen, which promotes growth of breast cancer cells.

Coconut lime body scrub

Coconut lime body scrub

This is such an AMAZING and refreshing body scrub - perfect for our upcoming summer!

I’ve chosen Lime for this recipe, but all citrus oils may assist to detox the body and skin so you could substitute in any other essential oils including Lemon, Grapefruit, Orange, Tangerine, Bergamot or even the Young Living Citrus Fresh blend which has a hint of Spearmint!

Adding the epsom salt makes it more of a detoxing scrub, so you could add more of this in place of sugar, or if it’s for the face you may like to just use sugar which is a little softer.

Soothing muscle blend

Soothing muscle blend

Over this last month, I have made a blend of essential oils specifically for relaxing muscles and supporting healthy ligaments and joints for about 8+ people! Think of knees, lower back, shoulders, neck, hands, wrists, fingers – I have been so amazed at how people have told me they feel after only a few minutes!

The great thing about the oils used in this blend is that they’re all in the Everyday Essentials kit too which is the kit I chose when I first joined Young Living. Having a set of 10 oils there really allows you to try each one for yourself and experiment with which ones you prefer and which ones work better for you.

Natural lavender face scrub

Natural lavender face scrub

Over the last few months I’ve been looking at removing more chemicals from within the home, and this is where I came across the Young Living Essential Oils. Wow I was absolutely blown away, and they’ve really supported my and my family’s health in ways I wasn’t expecting! I’ve written about my experience so far here.

And the latest use for what you might think of as an ‘old school’ oil – Lavender, is within a natural face scrub recipe. My beauty routine consists of washing my face with honey, and then using coconut oil as my moisturiser… so you can imagine that I won’t introduce things that I don’t see a benefit from and I like to keep it simple!

Raw nut and date cacao protein balls

Raw nut and date cacao protein balls

This is my go-to snack that is both nutritious and satiating so they take care of those cravings and not leave you with more!

I love making up a batch of these, and then popping them into the fridge or freezer, and that way I'm always prepared for those times that I really need a little something to keep me going.  And you can easily switch up the flavours of each batch, simply by using a different combination of nuts, or adding some different spices or essential oils.
