Vitamin C is used to neutralize chlorine.
 Two forms of vitamin C, ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbate, will neutralize chlorine. Neither is considered a hazardous chemical
The good news is that adding a bit of vitamin C to your bathwater can help neutralize at least part of the chlorine

Chlorine-Blasting DIY Bath Bombs


Now  you LIGHTLY mist with a spray bottle filled with water, don't let it fizz or your batch is ruined. If it starts to fizz, just quickly mix in with the rest. Now keep mixing, spray, mix until you can squeeze the mixture and a ball forms.
I used a plastic Tablespoon scoop, others have used a plastic egg from Easter, as a mold.
I packed the scoop tightly and gently tapped it out onto a waxed paper cookie sheet to dry over night.

Synthetic Chemicals
Do you really want to use them on your skin?
An ingredient that effectively scours and cleans a garage floor may not be the best choice for a facial cleanser.

When it comes to beauty products, the effects of the ingredients they contain can be more than just skin deep. The cosmetics industry uses thousands of synthetic chemicals in its products, in everything from lipstick and lotion to shampoo and shaving cream.

Many of these substances are also used in industrial manufacturing processes to clean industrial equipment, stabilize pesticides and grease gears. And we can all agree that an ingredient that effectively scours a garage floor may not be the best choice for a facial cleanser.

Petroleum products harm your skin and your body, because they....

Coat the skin like plastic wrap, disrupting the delicate acid mantle and the good bacteria that protect our skin from germs. Hinder the skin’s exposure to oxygen and other nutrients needed for proper detoxification and repair. Are not water soluble so they attach to your cells and build up in your body. They are very difficult for your body to eliminate.

In addition, the 1,4-dioxane (which is not listed on ingredient labels), is a petroleum-derived chemical that is often found in sudsing items like body wash, bubble bath, and shampoos. This chemical has been listed as a possible carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Meanwhile, the National Toxicology Program (NTP) has identified 1,4-dioxane as a “reasonably anticipated carcinogen”. These are all very good reasons to make more of your health and beauty products at home, where you control the quality, and the safety, of the ingredients.

So here are some good alternatives and why...
Coconut Oil - Virgin coconut oil improved skin barrier function. Coconut oil contains antibacterial and antifungal properties, making it the perfect ingredient to use to prevent toenail infections and foot fungus. 
Shea butter - It has natural antibacterial properties and is great for preventing stretch marks, for wound healing, and as an anti-aging treatment for skin. It naturally has an SPF of about 5 and can be used as a daily sunscreen. I use shea butter in my lotion, lotion bars, deodorant, face cream, baby lotion, diaper cream and many other recipes!
Cocoa butter is another “butter” and a great addition to natural beauty recipes. It imparts a delicate chocolate scent, and I love it mixed with mint or citrus in lotion bars, lotion or face cream. It can be used interchangeably with Shea Butter, though I find that my favorite recipes include Shea butter, Cocoa Butter, and Coconut Oil.
Beeswax is used to improve the condition and texture of the skin. It also has a number of benefits in treating skin problems like acne, eczema, and dry skin. Beeswax helps in locking skin moisture, fostering the skin cells and protecting the skin from environmental damages. It contains powerful anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties that are all beneficial to the skin.
Recipes like smoother lotions, baby oil, salves, and after-shave balms often need to be thinner than coconut oil and the butters will allow. In these cases, I use a liquid carrier oil. Most often, I use olive oil, almond oil, or rose hip seed oil (my favorite). Rose hip seed oil has the most gentle scent and almond oil is also relatively unscented. Olive oil is typically the least expensive if you don’t mind the olive scent in your recipes or if you plan to cover it up with essential oils.
I keep Arrowroot on hand for thickening sauces when cooking and it also gets added to a lot of natural recipes like deodorant, baby powder, diaper cream, dry shampoo, etc. It works much like cornstarch but isn’t GMO like many corn products. I also use it in my homemade makeup recipes.
Myrrh was (and still is) used in anointing oils and since it is naturally anti-septic, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, anti-microbial and anti-viral. It was used on wounds to ward off infection and was often used on the umbilical cord to keep it clean while it was healing. Myrrh was also said to help sooth and calm and could have been used on babies to calm them.
Frankincense was used in perfumes and was also helpful for improving hormone balance (like after pregnancy), and soothing skin wounds and stretch marks. Some sources say that it was used in traditional cultures to calm mom and baby after birth. In traditional cultures, it was used on babies (in small amounts) to calm, sooth and relax. It was also said to help alleviate digestive problems.
Cleansing serum for all skin types
Part of why I love this blend for a cleanser is because of its holistic benefits. Ylang Ylang is an aphrodisiac. It's also extremely calming and soothing.
Both Ylang Ylang and coconut oil are usually good for sensitive skin.

2 oz of Coconut oil
Add 5 drops of Ylang Ylang and stir (I often use a chopstick of the coconut is cooler and hard)
Apply to skin and wipe off with a gentle sponge.
I usually don't worry about getting rid of all it (I use it as a sort of night-time moisturizer too) but if you want, you can use a floral water like lavender or witch hazel to make sure you get it all off.
Alternatives: For problem skin like eczema, combine it with Roman Chamomile essential oil as well as crushed chamomile. This cleansing serum is good for dry, sensitive, and irritated skin.
Anti Wrinkle Cream
I recommend Argan Oil for this blend because of its STRONG anti wrinkle abilities. Coconut oil has some anti-aging properties as well, but it is not as powerful.

Add 4 oz Coconut Oil to a jar
Add 1 oz Argan Oil to the same jar and stir
Add 8 - drops of Frankincense Essential oil
Apply to skin and wipe off makeup with a sponge
I usually don't worry about getting rid of all it (I use it as a sort of night-time moisturizer too) but if you want, you can use a floral water like lavender or witch hazel to make sure you get it all off.

Effectiveness of Essential Oils


Essential oils probably exert their most powerful and direct pharmacological effects systemically via the blood supply to the brain. They also have an indirect effect via the olfactory nerve pathways into the brain. Essential oil fragrances are absorbed through blood circulation and nerve pathways from the sinuses into the central glands of the brain, which control emotional, neurological, and immunological functions.


Essential oils are absorbed in minute quantities through the skin, depending on the oil, dilution, and application (carrier oil, compress, etc). Many of the indications for specific oils include various skin conditions.


Essential oils are inhaled during treatment, which have a direct effect on the sinuses, throat, and lungs. Many essential oils are specific medicines for respiratory conditions.


Many essential oils have beneficial effects on circulatory problems, both through dermal and respiratory absorption. These oils enhance the circulation stimulating effects of massage

Oregano Essential Oil
No surprise here.

Oregano essential oil has been found to protect corn crops from fungal infections.
Researchers discovered that the essential oil was effective in keeping fungus at bay, offering a natural, safer alternative to synthetic chemicals that ultimately lead to the creation of treatment-resistant pathogens. Furthermore, it was discovered that oregano essential oil only needs to be used in small amounts to prevent corn crops from developing fungal infections, and because the oils don't stay in the water or soil for extended periods of time, the toxicity to animals is low.
The main compound in oregano essential oil, thymol, was found to be among one of the best oils to have antifungal activity.
It may come as no surprise that essential oregano oil provides these benefits.

After all, its been heralded by many for use in human health situations, often for its antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial and antiparasitic abilities. As an antifungal, it can help protect the body from internal and external infections; many enjoy using the oil to treat skin infections.

Its antibacterial benefits include the ability to maintain healthy gut flora and ward off urinary tract and colon infections. And the List goes on. . .

Your Natural Medicine Cabinet: The Basics

Essential oils are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and support the immune system. Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin.

Essential oils are POTENT. A little goes a long way. Don’t let the price tag scare you as you generally only need a couple drops…

Helps Sore Ears feel better
In our recent Newsletter we shared about a salt sock and how it helps sore ears feel better.  Add drops of either lemon & basil, or lavender & tea tree.  The salt sock will feel so good on a sore ear and the heat can help draw out the infection.  Just drop the oils onto a sock filled with Rock and Sea Salts.  Heat it for 30 seconds in the microwave and press your ear against it.
Just choose the beginning letter of an ailment to find a remedy that might help!
