Brown Sugar Body Scrub
I've been making my own body scrubs for years. Partly as a cost-effective effort, but also because it actually works really well! My skin is naturally dry and even more so in the winter.
Essential Oil Candles
Lavender essential oil is one of the most versatile essential oils. Not only can it be used topically, but the benefits can also be absorbed through use in aromatherapy. But why make your own candle at home? Store-bought candles can come with added chemicals that are released into the air once the candle is lit, and making your own soy-based candle at home is easy and cost effective too! Lavender helps reduce anxiety and emotional stress, improves sleep, alleviates headaches, and more.
In addition to the healing properties of lavender the tranquil and restorative light of candles is often used to help reduce stress and increase holistic wellbeing. Click here for the DIY.
Honey is a well known staple in homemade holistic health recipes. I like to keep these three infusions on hand.
