Ready for Takeoff!
My travel must haves:
I always pack my diffuser in my luggage too. It may seem a little over the top but the few times I didn’t bring it, I missed it big time! If you have Young Living’s dewdrop diffuser you can roll up the plug & tuck it into the base. It’s super sturdy and I just pack it between my clothes.

Essential Oils and Toxin-Free Living

Last weekend I was at a Women's Wellness Retreat at the beautiful Retreat At Balcones Springs to teach an essential oil workshop to over 30 awesome ladies. This was a mother/daughter version and I knew there might be some younger girls attending so I thought I would make the class a little more interactive and fun so I immediately thought about doing a sugar scrub. My girls and I have made a few scrubs before but it had been awhile and I really wanted to find one I could do a bulk version and then have some individual options so they could add their personal touch because after all isn't that why we do a DIY?! Not to mention you can pick your own quality ingredients and leave out all the chemical yuk!
I'm always excited and honored to get a chance to go out to The Retreat at Balcones Springs because it is such a beautiful setting and experience. The retreat coordinators & staff are always amazing, the ladies who attend the retreats are awesome and there are always dogs & donkeys running around! It's truly a magical place. Be sure to check it out!
In preparation for the event I looked at a ton of recipes and I decided my favorite ones had about a 2:1 ratio of sugar to “fatty oil” base. Then everything else is just a bonus! For our base we used Nutiva Refined Coconut Oil & Costco (Kirkland) Organic sugar. Thank you Costco for the quality products at value prices! Be sure to use refined coconut oil if you don't like the smell of coconut oil. Unrefined has the coconut smell which I actually like but some folks think it is too strong. There are many great choices for the oil base like avocado oil, grapeseed oil, etc but the coconut oil worked great and is typically a little less expensive especially if you are making a huge batch.
💚 1/2 cup sugar to 1/4 cup of coconut oil for two 4 oz jars
💚 3 cups sugar to 1 1/2 cups coconut oil for 12 small jars. We mixed enough for 10-12 jars at a time because we had 3 sessions but you could probably mix enough "base" for about 24 jars. Much more than that might be difficult to mix but use your own judgment based on the size of your bowl and your "cooking"/mixing skills.
Cedar Fever 2017
Cedar is one of Austin's most irritating allergens, and the 2017 cedar season could possibly be the worst we’ve seen in 10 years due to the recent drought and the increased rain over the past two years.
Get ready and be prepared for the worst.
