DIY Hand Spray / Gel

Featured

No need to be afraid! One of the things I love about DIY and Young Living is the ability to make up all.the.things in a snap (especially when stores are selling out … this is a WAY better option) and you need this goodness, DIYShowOff friends!

DIY Hand Spray / Gel Tutorial 

Here is what I use:

Please feel free to alter the below recipe according to your stash of essential oils (use a cleansing/purifying blend). I’ll be increasing the size for a larger bottle. 

And here is what I do: 

I added the following to a 1 oz. glass spray bottle: 5-7 drops of Thieves essential oil, 2-3 drops of Melaleuca, one squirt of V6 then a pinch of epsom salt (to help keep oil + liquid mixed). I then 1/2 filled with distilled aloe liquid, topped off to where the bottle starts to curve at the neck of the bottle with witch hazel. Secure lid, shake and spray. Embellish with decorative tape and a label. Tie on a handwritten note with pretty ribbon. “Thanks you for your helping hands.”

The Power of Thieves

New to essential oils? You’re going to love this! The Thieves Starter Kit is a great way to dive in and stock up on amazing clean products.

Thieves

Household Makeover

Let’s chat about one of the number one things we ALL use for a clean home: household cleaners. 

Have you ever heard of the Environmental Working Group? It’s a non-profit organization focused on the environment and public health. They have a website that lists the safety information of common household products you use to clean your home. These products contain ingredients containing carcinogens, asthma instigators, and poisons, which mean some sparkly cleaners might come at a high price.

Many of the generic cleaners contain Phthalates which interfere with hormones and are carcinogens. 

Thieves cleaner does NOT contain those big bad Phthalates. Instead of Phthalates, Thieves Cleaner by Young Living contains two different sulfates that are derived from coconut oil and sugar. These all-natural and safe sulfates that are considered surfactants, which contain a molecule that loves water and a molecule that hates water. That means the Thieves Cleaner sticks to the surface and grabs the oil and then washes away easily with water. 

It can be used on many different surfaces: counters, bathrooms, floors, toys, clothes, carpet, mirrors, windows, and more. Spot check a small area before you use your Thieves cleaner on a new surface. We use it daily and on practically every surface in our home. 

This cleaner is also insanely cost effective. It is highly concentrated so you only need about a capful of this all-purpose cleaner in about one cup of water. With this ratio, one small bottle will yield you about 29 16 oz spray bottles of safe all-purpose cleaner. That means it’s under $1 for one spray bottle. Can’t beat that price! Time to ditch and switch all of your household cleaners for the Thieves all-purpose cleaner. Living above the wellness line and saving money at the same time. Double bonus! 

The Thieves cleaner comes in a small or large bottle and you can even get a convenient spray great for shopping carts, public tables, hands and so much more.

Birthday Bash

Hi DIYShowOff friends! Oh dear blog friends, I’m so blessed by your friendship and so happy you’re here. Thank you for your encouragement and support! 

Birthday Bash:

I love that you’re here. Our mutual interest in DIY has brought us together and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you on a more personal level. I love our collaborations, our stories of putting so much love, so much of ourselves into creating  a beautiful home.

unicorn essential oils make and take

If you know me by now, you know that not only do I love being creative and crafty with DIY projects, I’m passionate about wellness and a chemical free home so as I celebrate my last year before hitting a big birthday milestone in 2020, I wanted to share some fun birthday incentives with my favorite blog friends. 

Savvy Minerals make up

Giving back: 

It’s my birthday month! My birthday wish is to give back in a big way. That’s the plan! For March, when you purchase a Premium Starter Kit using enroller/sponsor #1836762 at YoungLiving.com, I’ll be donating 25% to providing product gifts for some special recipients! I’d love to gift the Thieves Disinfecting (non toxic) Spray to cancer patients in our area! Thieves is SO amazing and smells good too!

Thieves spray

6 (SIX!!!!) close family members diagnosed with cancer in the past 6 years! That’s 6 too many! Sharing about chemical free products, essential oils with no side effects and making healthier choices may only be a super small imprint on those I love, their families and the world – but it’s one positive step in the right direction!

I appreciate your shares and referrals too! Thank you so much for helping me!

Gift of Wellness: 

Think oils aren’t for you because you’re not a hippie? Not crunchy? Or that there’s no way they can actually work like the “crazy oil people” say they can? See, that’s where you’ve got it wrong. Sooooo wrong. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to try.

It’s my goal for every one of my friends and family to have essential oils in their home so they have options to live above the wellness line and non toxic choices for aches and pains, immune system support along with support for other body systems too – you need these oils in your life!

The workshop transformation. It’s my favorite! 

The building has so much historical charm. It’s about one block from our town’s Main Street. The bus stop is literally steps away. There’s a gorgeous Butler, PA Bed & Breakfast across the street called Suite Retreat (how cute is that?!) and an antique shop nearby. There are breweries, the YMCA, shops, restaurants, salons, florists, candy/coffee shop, holiday parades and festivals within walking distance. So fun! If renovation from blah to ahhhhh is your thing, stay tuned!

So subscribe and be reminded of updates as the renovations progress! I’ll share before and after photos, projects underway and updates, plans and design boards, sources and links as they relate as well as fun events going on in and around the downtown area. I’ll be using a specific hashtag on social media to keep things all neat and tidy and organized.

DIY Wood Dryer Ball Snowman Tutorial

essential oil holiday craft time

Supplies:

wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorial

What I did:

  1. I added a wool dryer ball to a treat bag and secured the top with a clear elastic hair band.wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorial
  2. Then popped in another wool dryer ball and closed the top with another clear elastic hair band. wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorial
  3. Attach the snowman had to cover the top using hot glue. wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorial
  4. Decorate hat with Christmas florals or ribbon. wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorial
  5. Tie on a holiday ribbon scarf between the two wool dryer balls.wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorial
  6. Draw a face using your Sharpie markers.wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorial
  7. Attach a business card and sample of your favorite essential oil. 

wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorial wool dryer ball snowman essential oils tutorialHow I use mine: REPLACE toxic dryer sheets with wool dryer balls and essential oils! Remove wool dryer balls from packaging, stick the snowman hat on your dog (or not – hahaha!), add a few drops of essential oil to each ball and toss in the dryer with a load of wet clothes. I find that since my dryer has a sensor and stops when clothes are dry, that we don’t have issue with static cling. Sometimes, I’ll add another drop or two and “air dry” or “fluff” before folding dry clothes.

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly! And Healthy!

‘Tis the season to be jolly! And healthy! And if you’re wondering where to even start with a healthier lifestyle, here’s my story. As you know, I’m a DIY girl. No fear about diving in and giving things a try. So doing the same when it comes to wellness made sense to me. This is what got me started, raised awareness and made a difference in my lifestyle:

DesertMistPSK

 

Is what you put into your body important to you? I‘m pretty sure by now that you’ve heard a lot about essential oils, right? ::groan:: and ::eye roll:: <— that was my initial reaction too! lol! What IS all the fuss about? Let me share it with you as short and sweet as I can why essential oils are all the rage for me personally. (Some affiliate links below.)

I am so forver grateful someone shared with me: When I first heard, I thought it was some temporary popular trend and I tuned it out. la-la-la-la-la!!!!!! But nearly 4 years ago on a blogging retreat, two of my blog buddies shared essential oils with me…I have a bit of an issue with traveling which causes some uncomfortable side effects (TMI! you don’t want to know) and the essential oil shared made all the difference! Oh.my.good.NESS! If it worked for that, how else? In my world at the time, my mom and sister were going through treatments for breast cancer. I was ready and open to making healthier choices. Baby steps. Just starting somewhere.

You guys, I’ve had 6 family members diagnosed with cancer in SIX years! I felt so helpless! 

DIYShowOff

Essential oils have been around FOREVER and I know that lately they’re ALL THE HYPE but I believe it’s because word of mouth spreads faster these days via social media. They aren’t new. And specifically, Young Living has been around going on 30 years! I was still practically a child (and I’m a grandma now!). That’s not anything bright and shiny and just born. And “Young Living” is THE BRAND everyone wants. Because guess what? Not all essential oils are created equal! What I really love about Young Living is their Seed to Seal Guarantee. They aren’t just buying from a supplier and slapping on a label. Young Living controls the process of planting, harvesting, distilling, bottling, labeling and shipping from their own farms and partner farms from around the world with high standards and lots of testing. In fact,

Seed to Seal

 

Young Living is the #1 essential oils company in the world. I am confident that I am getting the best quality essential oil. One other quick point about Young Living…unlike buying a cheap oil from Amazon or WalMart or even TJMaxx (be aware: even a label with 100% pure doesn’t mean that’s the case), I love that I have support, resources and testimonials from personal experiences to help guide me on my oily journey. I’ve never had to work about my health but now I’m empowered to research, to learn more and to embrace wellness. When someone tells me they tried an essential oil and it didn’t work, I’m pretty sure they tried a fragrance or lower grade, not the quality of Young Living essential oils. 

Nostalgia: Something that is really important to me … creating an environment for my sweet grandson that’s FREE of toxins. Know what else I really love? You know how a certain scent will take you back to a really special memory? I love that he is going to associate those amazing good scents like lavender or clove/cinnamon with his grammy. 

roeshel @diyshowoff grandmas rock!

What is an essential oil anyway? My first uneducated thought: “oh, some air freshening junk that maybe helps you relax, snake oils for hippies”. An essential oil is the substance created by plants for protection against damage, injury, predators, environmental/weather changes. And they work for humans (oh and my dog and that horse too) in much the same way. Whoa! I certainly never imagined that essential oils had powerful health benefits. What? Why haven’t we heard about them before? Why didn’t I know that I could grab an essential oil for relief or health support in so many ways without the synthetic chemicals or side effects? The answer to that is an involved blog post for another day but just because I never knew, doesn’t mean it isn’t so. Essential oils were one of the first medicines! I’m learning so much and I’m so thankful that my friends DID share with  me because it’s made a HUGE difference in our lifestyle, our health, our finances and our home. 

 

Again, why Young Living brand? The history, the quality, the support, the selection (hello essential oils, personal care, supplements, cleaning products and so much more – toxin free products I use every day!), the opportunities (ask me how I’m going to the lavender farm for FREE this fall and how I’ve passed up my blogging income, especially when I vowed I would NEVER promote one of those work-from-home type companies). It’s rewarding having the opportunity to help others make healthier choices too. I see how it really is changing lives. And because I see that for myself personally, I really can’t help but to shout it out to you on my blog on occasion or from the top of my lungs on Facebook! “YOU need these oils too!” 

 

Recommendation:

SO here is what I recommend: THIS DIFFUSER IS THE BOMB! 3-5-10 hour settings, LED lights (including a pretty candle flicker)! Love it!

…just dip your toe in by purchasing the premium starter kit. Just try and see. This gives you the biggest bang for your buck with NO obligations. It’s the best way to give essential oils a good fair shot to see the benefits for yourself! For $160 (+tax/shipping) you get:

 
  • A diffuser: You’re going to want to diffuse your essential oils into the air so you can breathe in those health benefits and support! What I love: unlike a candle, there are no toxic chemicals or synthetic fragrances. I get to choose the scent I want to diffuse…something uplifting or relaxing, something immune boosting or cleansing, etc. AND I get to control the strength. A drop or two for sensitive noses, more for a POW – my house smells amazing! The diffusers are constructed of a medical grade material that will not break down with the use of essential oils. It also comes with a 1 year warranty.
  • 11 bottles of essential oils: Peppermint (cooling, great for after exercise, occasional head tension, supporting a healthy digestive system), Frankincense (supports healthy skin, meditative/spiritual, promotes a sense of well being), Lemon (energizing and cleansing), Citrus Fresh (I love adding a few drops to freshen up laundry)), DiGize (a must have for supporting a healthy digestive system), Thieves (supports a healthy immune system, very popular oil that because of it’s awesome power is also used in YL’s household cleaner concentrate, bar soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid and dishwasher powder, dental products, hand purifier, etc. too – it’s SO good!), Lavender (relaxing and calming and awesome for all.things.healthy.skin!!!), Copaiba, PanAway (smells like IcyHot, great for after exercise), Raven (supports a healthy respiratory system!), Stress Away (enough said!).
  • A sample of Thieves Household Cleaner (YOU WILL LOVE THIS!!! Cinnamon/clove scent?! Yes please!)
  • Sample bottles and cards to share with others.
  • Sample Ningxia Red (super juice – POW!) 
  • A lifetime wholesale membership – sounds scary but there are no obligations to order ever again. But if you do want to, you now have access to 24% off retail prices! Hurray! Spend 50 pv ($around $50) per year to stay an active member or … hey, go inactive. There is no penalty. You just don’t order again, you walk away free and clear.
  • Friendships and support!
  • The potential to share with others and to make a paycheck – it’s just there, hanging out, yours for the taking IF you want it. No requirements. No monthly quotas. You never HAVE to ‘sell’ or share or speak a word to anyone if you don’t want to. But if you do, you might just get an accidental paycheck! Let’s discuss the details. It’s not like your usual work-from-home multi-level marketing company.
  • Access to a Rewards program IF you decide you love you oils to pieces and can’t live without MORE! Completely optional. I love it because I get things I used to buy at WalMart (but now a chemical free version) and my essential oils delivered to my door and I earn rewards BIG TIME (shopping spree!) but that’s just me. I’m talking about not just essential oils but our toothpaste, household cleaner, deodorant, laundry detergent, lotion, supplements, etc. You have the choice. Decline immediately, sign up if you want some other time or never join it. Up to you!
