Winter Nights’s aroma invigorates any home with the electricity of softly falling snow, the peace of crisp midnight air in winter, and the warmth of cozy spaces.
If you have a bottle, making a beard oil with Young Living’s exclusive Winter Nights essential oil blend is an easy DIY to use it.
It’s never been easier to keep your man’s rugged beard looking and feeling great. Using a beard oil can help tame his beard and care for the skin underneath the facial hair, all while leaving his beard smelling amazing.
Directions: Add 30 drops of Winter Nights to a 2 oz. dropper bottle and fill the remainder with his favorite moisturizing carrier oil.....
In my latest DIY project, I made lotion bars and I used the dandelion infused coconut oil I made a few weeks ago along with shea butter and beeswax.
I melted those ingredients in a double boiler (or glass bowl in pot) over medium high heat.
FYI: The beeswax helps it to remain firm in warmer temperatures .
Then I scented the batch with lavender and frankincense because these are both great for supporting healthy skin.
Then I poured the oil into the mold and chilled in the freezer until completely solid.
Side note: I love these cute molds!!!

I see so many face toner recipes that have tea tree oil in them but there are so many different essential oils that you can also use for your face toner.￼￼ I like tea tree but I like a little variety as well!
I prefer to use fennel because it is a natural astringent. I have oily skin and need something that is going to help reduce the shine but not strip my skin of it’s natural oils.
After doing some research, I have found that juniper essential oil is a great complement to fennel and it has cleansing properties as well. It is a tree oil, so you have that woodsy aroma.￼
I also add lavender because it is a calming and soothing oil for the skin.￼
Hydrosols are aromatic waters produced during the distilling process. They offer many of the same naturally occurring constituents as your favorite essential oils but in a lower concentration. As such, it can help balance the skin’s pH after cleansing, refresh, and hydrate your skin.￼ I’m using Young Living’s Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood hydrosol because it has some of the same benefits of using sandalwood which helps support healthy skin.
TOW DIY Face Toner
10 drops lavender
6 drops fennel
5 drops juniper
1/2 – 3/4 cup Witch hazel
2 tablespoons Royal Hawaiian sandalwood hydrosol (optional)
Mix and pour into 4 oz glass jar.
***Note: make sure your witch hazel says that it is pure witch hazel and not witch hazel mixed with alcohol. The benefits of using pure witch hazel is that it is a natural astringent which helps reduce skin irritation and fight acne without drying out your skin. I use Thayers unscented.
My cuz and I were painting 🖼 and she was talking about a skin issue her son has. I decided to make her a oatmeal-lavender bath ball 🛁 Both oatmeal and lavender are naturally soothing for skin. Apricot oil is a natural moisturizer and has helped me with my eczema.
In the midst of making it, I thought to take a few pictures to share with you all.
I didn’t measure anything. I mixed about 1/4 cup apricot oil with 15 drops @youngliving lavender essential oil. Then poured that into about 2 cups of @quaker old fashion oats. Mixed until all oats are coated.
Spooned half of mixture into a pantyhose (you can use cheesecloth or something permeable like a giant tea bag).
Secure end so that the oats don’t leak out. Easy peasy 😁 Now when lil man gets his next bath, he will soak and have some relief!
