Got Water?

Are you wondering if you’re drinking enough water? I was! So I made this little jar to help me. It is actually a little small, so I drink a water bottle of water when I wake up and again at 5:00.  An empty gallon jug works perfectly, but I wanted glass!

I found the jar at Hobby Lobby for $3! What a steal! There are lots of sayings you can add to keep you motivated — here are a few that I saw on Pinterest.

My favorite oils to drink in water these days are Young Living Peppermint or Lemon Essential Oils. They are great for supporting our respiratory, digestive, and immune systems. Head over to this page to learn more about Young Living essential oils and why we love them in our home! We have enjoying using them on our journey to health and wellness and I would love to help you do the same!

DIY Chemical Free Shaving Cream

Are you on a quest to eliminate chemicals out of your home? You have found the perfect recipe for a chemical free shaving cream! It is easy to make, smells amazing, and works like a charm! 

DIY Shaving Cream Young Living

Grab the following ingredients: 

1 foaming soap dispenser (I used a leftover one I cleaned out and repurposed)
½ cup liquid castile soap (I love the almond scent! You can find it at Sprouts or on Amazon)
¼ cup warm water
¼ cup pure aloe vera (gel or juice)
½ teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable glycerin
1 Tablespoon Vitamin E oil (or coconut oil)
5 drops YL Lavender essential Oil
5 drops YL Melrose Essential Oil

Dissolve the salt in the warm water, and then blend all of the remaining ingredients together. Put in a foaming dispenser, and voila! Easy peasy! Just give it a little shake before you pump!

I occasionally use this as my body wash too!
