It’s so important for us to pay attention to everything we are absorbing into our bodies. We discuss common toxins present in many body products in our Paper Yourself Workshop so please come along and learn for yourself how to tell what’s Ok and what’s not! I make a lot of my own products, I buy many of doTERRA’s ready made products (face mask, spa range, skin care range etc!) and I know what to look out for in other body products – and I can help you too! Here are some of my favourite DIY recipes below…
Lavender & Citrus Bliss Bath Bombs
100g bicarb soda
40g citric acid
10 drops Lavender
5 drops Citrus Bliss
10-15ml fractionated coconut oil
optional: dried lavender buds
Whisk together bicarb soda and citric acid until well combined
Add 10ml fractionated coconut oil, essential oils and optional lavender buds – whisk again until combined
If necessary add additional fractionated coconut oil to help mixture stick together
Push mixture firmly into silicone moulds

Once completely dry, remove from moulds and store in a glass, sealed jar

Heat until the ingredients are melted, mixing with a whisk then put the mixture into the fridge for one hour or until firm.
Whip the ingredients with a hand mixer until creamy and light. Add essential oils and mix again.
Spoon the body butter into glass jars and it will firm up after a few minutes.
