Summer is here (almost)! And so are the bugs. Prepare yourself and your family with the right essential oils to keep the bugs away naturally. I like to say: if you wouldn’t eat something, don’t put it on your skin. I don’t know very many people who would swallow a spray of bug repellent… so let’s stick to the natural stuff! Make a big batch of this natural insect repellent to last you through the summer.

New Picture (1)Coconut Oil and Shea Butter are both fantastic for your skin. Not only because they help it stay hydrated but because they are packed with several important vitamins and have natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. They are used in all kinds of skin care products because they really work to help keep your skin soft and clear. They also provide the perfect base for essential oils, which are extremely concentrated on their own.

I’m sure you’ve all had experiences with essential oils. I’ve used them for several years now and couldn’t be happier with the results. Mother Nature without fail always provides us with what we need to thrive, we simply have to know where to look.
