School is coming to an end, summer will be here before we know it and before your flip-flop, bathing suit cover-up wearing days begin you need to think about your child’s teacher! Say thank you for all they have added to your child’s life by making them these special gifts!
Thieves Hand Sanitizer
1/2 Cup Aloe Vera Gel
1/2 Cup Distilled Water
10 Drops of YL Thieves Essential Oil
Stir all ingredients until gel becomes uniform. You may want to add more water depending on how thick you want your hand sanitizer.
I used emptied and cleaned hotel shampoo bottles for my travel sized hand sanitizer. To fill them I funneled the hand sanitizer in a soap dispenser pump (good to keep on your desk), then pumped the sanitizer into the smaller bottles.
Grapefruit Bath Salts
1 Cup of Epsom Salt
5 – 6 Drops of YL Grapefruit Essential Oil
In a glass or stainless steel bowl measure salt, add drops, stir, store in glass container.
Citrus Burst Sugar Scrub
2 Cups Coconut Oil
2 Cups Sugar
Zest and Juice from 3 – 4 Mandarin Oranges
15 -16 Drops of Your Choice of Citrus EO
(I used 8 drops Grapefruit, 8 of Lemon)
*This recipe was adapted from my friend Janelle’s Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub*
Using a mixer (or a fork and some elbow grease) whip coconut oil until smooth. Once coconut oil is smooth and free of chunks add in the other ingredients and mix well. Store in glass containers. Use on face, hands, feet or any skin area that is problem or acne prone. This is also great to use when shaving for swimming pool!
Hope you enjoy these recipes! Don’t forget to thank your children’s teachers!!!
with heart and health,
