Essential Oil Love Potion

We dusted off our caldron and whipped up a lovely little Essential Oil Love Potion
No cat whiskers or nail clippings in this potion! 

Instead you will find the enchanting fragrance of love... like Ylang Ylang and Jasmine to mention a few. 

And love potions are not always with the intent to capture love, but also made with the intent to keep the attraction renewed, alive and well.

A love potion is a very personal thing, and each one is different to that person.

Actual formulas are not given as part of the power of a potion lies with the creator of the blend. (source)

 So the blending of this Essential Oil Love Potion is not a followed recipe per say, but lies with the potion maker.

Now, lets get ready to cast a spell!

Sunflowers and Apples Mantel

The fading out of Summer and the entering in of Autumn is a bittersweet time.  We hate to see Summer end, but we love the anticipation of Autumn as well.

We decided to say farewell to Summer and welcome Autumn and  decorated our mantel to reflect that transition with sunflowers and apples.

Grapefruit Coconut Oil Body Spritz

We hope you happened to catch our two previous posts on essential oils. We shared with you how to make your very own  Copycat "T" Anti-bacterial Oil and diy Essential Oil Perfume.

 Today we present our most favorite essential oil body recipe Cellulite Grapefruit Oil Body Spritz.

We happily came upon this recipe while looking for new essential oil body recipes. This comes from one of our most favorite blogs, Camp Wander, a wonderful blog on essential oils for everyday wellness.

Grapefruit oil has the reputation of being a fantastic cellulite fighter. 

Grapefruit essential oil is loaded with Vitamin C and Monoterpenes, both a have a stimulating effect and inhibit accumulation of toxins from liver and kidneys. (source)

And who doesn't need a little help with this area!!!!

Copycat "T" Anti-Bacterial Oil

Today we are sharing with you a homemade anti-bacterial essential oil blend that is truly amazing in our opinion.

Many of you may already be familiar with the well beloved oil that was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. 

This is what we are referring to.

Since we are the fugal gals, we searched the internet for recipes for a version of the well beloved, high priced (but well worth it) oil and made a copycat version of our own appropriately named... 
Copycat "T" Oil Anti-bacterial
