Save money & use natural products on your face & body with these 50+ DIY Beauty Recipes with Essential Oils

We love using essential oils in so many different ways in our households and one of our favorite ways to use them is to replace many of our beauty products for more natural options. There has been more and more research in the last few years about all of the chemicals found in beauty products many of us regularly use, so we have been on the hunt for natural products and DIY recipes we can use in place of these store-bought products. This way we know exactly what we are putting on our faces and our bodies and more importantly, what are are putting on our kids bodies as well.

Even better, we have found that by creating our own natural DIY products, the prices can be significantly less than what we’d pay for drugstore or department store makeup & beauty products. Many of the products used to create these DIY recipes are ones found in the grocery or drugstores (such as honey, sugar, witch hazel, coconut oil) and you only need a few drops of essential oils to be effective.

We’ve put together a list of a variety of DIY recipes using essential oils for your face & body if you’re wanting to use more natural options in your beauty regimen.

Young Living Premium Starter Kit for March 2018

There are many, many brands of essential oils available on the market including ones you can find in stores, online retailers such as Amazon & more. However, both Sia & I have extensively researched using essential oils with our family & we have decided to use Young Living essential oils. We feel so confident with them that we are selling them so that others can benefit from better wellness for their families, too, as our families have benefited in the 2+ years that we have been using them in our homes.

They are a bit pricier than what you’ll find in the stores, but we know that they have a very strict Seed to Seal process to ensure that they are pure, therapeutic grade oils with nothing added to them,  that we feel completely safe using with our kids & our families. If you are wanting to make your own DIY beauty recipes, then you want to know everything you are putting into those recipes since you are using them on your face & body and with these Young Living essential oils, we know that we can trust that they have absolutely no chemicals in them.

Find out more about why we use Young Living Essential Oils and how you can save the most when buying these oils. Our favorite deal is the Premium Starter Kit, valued at over $300, including a diffuser and 11 essential oils. Plus some freebies such as a $20 Amazon Gift Card & more that we’ll send you to help you get started with the resources & supplies needed to start your wellness journey with oils.
