DIY Dusting Spray- A Natural Pledge 

So I am starting to experiment making my own everyday products. A few days ago I was cleaning and remembered that certain essential oils are good for cleaning. So I decided to make an all natural duster spray/pledge. Here is what you need:

  1. Olive Oil – 1/4 cup

  2. Water – 1 cup

  3. Lemon Essential Oil – 20 drops

Combine all ingredients into a spray bottle, make sure to use glass so that the essential oils don’t leach out the plastic. I used a plastic bottle because that was all I had available, but I only made a small amount. Once all ingredients are poured into the bottle, shake and use.

 

Lemon essential oil is good for cleaning because of it’s disinfectant qualities along with it being antiseptic and antifungal. And it also smells great!

A Refreshing Hair Mask For Growing & Strengthening Your Hair 

With Summer being right around the corner, I started the process of lightening my hair. Anyone who has ever colored their hair knows that it will damage your hair, especially if you are going lighter! To help repair and lengthen my hair, I started using a hair masks out of Coconut oil and castor oil once a week. This helped with keeping my hair soft and healthy after my color treatment. Recently, I started using essential oils in my everyday life, and so I decided to use essential oils in my hair masks as well.

This last week has been a very emotional week for Kat & me and I have been feeling very fatigued and with low spirits. Because of this, I wanted to give myself a small spa feeling that would leave me refreshed and rejuvenated. For making this hair mask, I combined three carrier oils: the Trader Joe’s coconut oil, doTERRA’s fractionated coconut oil and Castor oil (to help with hair growth) and two essential oils: Wild Orange to lift up my mood and energy & Peppermint to awaken and give me a refreshing feeling. I combined all the oils and rubbed it all over my scalp going down to my hair ends. Once I felt like I spread it evenly across my hair, I combed out my hair to spend it even more evenly.

This is how my hair looks once I am done. I then just leave my hair like this for the rest of the day and wash my hair the following morning.
