Denne favoritten fra #naturaldeodorantco lukter helt nydeligVi var litt skeptiske til koriander under armene, men sammen med lime utgjør den en eksotisk og mild duft. Love it #cantlivewithout
I doubled the recipe to make what's pictured. Most of these containers are around 2 ounces. It made 9 containers and a little leftover.
3 tablespoons Shea Butter (I used 6)
1/2 cup beeswax pellets (I used 1 cup)
1/4 cup sweet almond oil (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup coconut oil (1 cup)
4 tablespoons zinc oxide non-nano (8 tbs)
50 drops Carrot Seed
30 drops Frankinsense
25-30 drops Manuka
25-30 drops Lavender
In a double broiler or two pots see my picture below.
Add the beeswax first because takes the longest to melt. Add the Shea Butter, coconut oil, almond oil. **saving the zinc and oils for later
Once your mixture is melted take off the heat. **Be careful this will be very hot**
Add your zinc oxide. You will have to stir this very well! It'll look very milky.
You can add your oils now. (You can play with different oils... Carrot seed is in ALL diy sunscreen but I have seen the Manuka swapped out with geranium. Lavender and frankincense are awesome for skin support as is Manuka. So I decided to leave those)
Mix again before pouring.
When you're halfway done filling your containers give the mixture a stir again, then finish pouring. The zinc has a habit of settling to the bottom.
Let cool! All done
Enjoy your summer!!!
Why is #GutHealth so important?
Scientists have discovered in recent years that the digestive system doesn't just digest food but together with the trillions of bacteria that reside there, regulates the immune system, influences your metabolism, controls inflammation in the body and even affects your mental health.
Bimuno works at the centre of your health, the body's core - the gut - to help you unlock the true secret of health & wellness.

Oh how a new lipstick can brighten your day! --- this it lotus and I it!!!! Goes on smoothly +++ I don't have to worry about any nasty chemicals. My old makeup even used to SMELL like chemicals! but not any more! For longer lasting lips use the Arbonne makeup primer, it's safe on your lips because everything they make is pure, SAFE, and beneficial. Even this little lipstick is giving my lips beneficial botanicals while I'm wearing it!
Make sure that if you're drinking this summer that you stay hydrated! And keep these 3 close for tummy just in case you have a little too much or just need some support after that BBQ you said you wouldn't eat too much at, but things happen : @oilcollective
May your life be filled with wonder, joy, and adventures
Not sickness, illness, or chronic disease. Doing my best to create a non-toxic life with natural medicine, building a healthy immune system, and learning as much as I can about using food for health.
The unedited clips when all we do is nothing but laugh and joke with eachother. I started this journey alone but with my twin by my side it's much more a meaningful journey. Each day good or bad we grind away and keep eachother motivated and focused on our goals to push it to that next level! #rileytwins
Ok so we all like savings right? Sometimes we talk ourselves out of spending money on things because we THINK we are spending a lot. Well, I am not typically a couponer or a price matcher but I thought I would compare and contrast the cost of YL's makeup with a few other leading companies.
Here are my interesting finds for the basic things we all buy when we think of makeup:
Young Living Savvy Minerals (Wholesale Price):
Eyeshadow (one color)-15.25
Total=$153 (w/out Lipstick-$130.25; w/out Lip Gloss-$125.50)
So, as you can see: 1.) Young Living's makeup is NOT expensive; 2.) Hello, INGREDIENTS??? :) I mean, the stuff I can trust is really no more then the stuff I can't trust. Maybe you get a tad more (like multiple eyeshadows or a duo blush pack) but I am happy to get quality over quantity. :) AND BEST POINT OF ALL: Neither of these other 2 give me POINTS BACK when I order!!!! With my YL order I can add these to my ER order, get 25% back (if you're just starting you will get 10% and work your way up) which is $38.25 back on an order of $153!!!!! So, what does that? Does Target? Ulta? Amazon?
Just something to chew on. Feel free to share this. End of math lesson.
Its go-timefueling up on this all natural green tea + beets + Beta-alanine + Quercetin for those of you who don't know what the heck that is or what it does..basically this all natural lemony goodness improves focus, enhances energy levels, & speeds up muscle recovery (i might add this has no sugar and no chemicals - just pure green tea energy)so that I can focus on my daily fitness without being bogged down with tight achy muscles. Uhm hell yeah. Its even pretty look it matches my nails. Anyways, Im off to get in 25mins of ab workouts for Day 4 of the Badass Babe 7 day Challenge ✌🏼️ oh, and btw --I am thinking of doing a free beginner-ish yoga challenge.. Anyone up for it?
