DIY Bite Buster

We love to do as much outdoors as we can during the short Wisconsin summer months. Hiking, biking, swimming, camping, and more. The scenery here is so beautiful, but along with the trees and sun also comes lovely little creatures.

These little winged guys are such an annoyance, but even worse can annoy our skin long after coming back indoors. There are lots of things we all try to ease the skin discomfort and some essential oils are so great for the skin!

I personally love to use straight purification, but having a blend pre-mixed in a roller bottle is so convenient and already diluted for the kiddos. This DIY Bite Buster roller bottle recipe is SO quick and easy to make. You can probably do it within a minute! A must-have to pack in your camping gear.

DIY Deodorant

Have you ever struggled with confidence because of regular body odor. Some of us just have a naturally stronger aroma than others. I thought I had tried everything and had just given up, but then I found this recipe and love it!

When I ordered my Young Living Premium Starter Kit, I saw a DIY Deodorant recipe from the Young Living blog on pinterest. I decided to give it a try, and guess what, it worked better than any other!

With this recipe I only need to use once a day!┬áMy clothes aren’t getting yellow stains, I’m staying dry, have confidence to hug, and more. It’s amazing how such a seemingly tiny factor can impact so much of your life!

Not to mention all the junk that is in the products on the store shelves. I am so relieved to have found a recipe that is not only effective, but also safe!

It takes only a few minutes and a handful of ingredients to make. You could switch the essential oil out for a different scent if you don’t have as much odor as I do. I like Purification best because of its ability to cleanse and purify. Plus it smells great! Just make sure you are using Young Living’s 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. Since this is going on your skin, it will be absorbed into your body as well. So using the highest quality and safest oils out there is so important.

Things to note: Some people experience a detox effect on their underarms when first starting this new deodorant. This is because after years of using toxic products your body will try to get them all out. This can cause irritation to the area. Just use less and slowly until this passes (usually 1-2 weeks). Make sure to test the recipe on a small area before using over the entire underarm to see how your body reacts. If you continue to have discomfort also consider using less, or no, baking soda and substituting with arrowroot powder for a gentler recipe.

DIY Outdoor Spray

We live in Wisconsin, so we need to take advantage of the outdoors when the weather is warm! We love to be outdoors as much as we can during the summer months for camping, fishing, swimming, etc.

Living toxin-free is very important to us, but we still need to protect ourselves from outdoor annoyances. No one likes swatting at the air like a crazy person, haha.

This recipe is so easy and quick and we have had some great results using it. We reapply often since it can quickly dry off the skin, so use as often as desired. I love knowing it is safe and effective even for my littlest kids.
