Happy Sunday! Nick and I are in Portland area with our friends Jesse and Olivia and woke up to beautiful snow! Yesterday we did our engagement photos and I got to see a little sneak peek and totally teared up! These photos mean so much to me... Nick and I have never had nice photos of us before so this is such a special time. Can't wait to share them!
Olivia and I both love our essential oils and desperately wish we could afford ALL of them ! I mean who doesn't... so in the spirit of being financially conscious, here's a DIY with items we already have at home.
DIY Floral Winter Roller
I love a good and simple DIY. I think that's why I'm so attracted to essential oils in general. They can replace gross, chemical-filled products by creating your own natural ones with a few simple ingredients!
Rollers and sprays are my favorite things to make. I made this roller a few weeks back but never shared it, so here it is now! Adding some baby florals, leaves, greenery can just add some prettiness and add even more natural scents. I mean, how cute?!
I ended up using this roller as a perfume for pretty much all of December and January. I mixed in:
- 5-8 drops lemon
- 5-8 drops grapefruit
- 5-8 drops melrose
- 1-2 drops citrus fresh
- Filled the rest with carrier oil (I use organic grape seed oil)
It became a really lovely floral + citrusy scent- I am obsessed! Especially living in Spokane where it stays cold for a solid 3-4 months, smelling this heavenly scent on me everyday just made me feel a little brighter on the inside.
Aside from this roller...
Lately I've been spraying my face with a Eucalyptus Lemon spray (mixed with water) before I moisturize. Then I add a drop of Melrose mixed in with the face moisturizer, and I just feel clean, relaxed, and fresh!
If YOU are an essential oil lover as well, what are some of your faves as of lately? Leave in comments! xoxo
