  • 6 drops Progessence Plus

Easy All Natural Lip Balm/Chapstick

Easy All Natural Lip Balm/Chapstick

OMG y’all this is the easiest thing to make.  I will never buy lip balm from the store again!  So start saving your empty tubes now.

I have changed this recipe so many times and this is the winner!

Beeswax 15 grams
Shea Butter 10 grams 
Cacao Butter:  15 grams
Carrier oil: 15 grams
Essential Oils: 20-30 drops*
*You can use any combo your little heart desires.  Here are a few ideas:
– Vanilla & Peppermint
– Cinnamon, Vanilla & Honey
– Orange, Tangerine & Vanilla
– Peppermint & Rosemary
– Vanilla & Honey
Use your creativity and make up your own blend.  Start small and add more oils as needed.

Start melting the beeswax and cacao butter first since they’re they take the longest to melt.  Then add in your carrier oils.  Once everything is completely melted, remove from heat then add your essential oils.
I use a tadka pan over a pot of boiling water but you can use any kind of double broiler or the microwave.  If you’re going the microwave route just make sure you keep a close eye on it and only melt at small increments.
Yes, it’s that easy!!  If you’re just refilling some tubes you can use a medicine syringe and add the leftover to a microwavable container to melt and use later.  Or if you’d like to make a larger batch, check out this kit below 👇.  My only tip is to work quickly, once all ingredients have been added it will harden fairly quickly.

All Natural Body Butter

All Natural/Healing Body Butter/Balm

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you.  I’ve had people tell me not to share the recipe and to sell it but that’s just not how I roll.  When I find something that I love and that works, I want to share it with the world.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased a product and love it but never bought it again because it was either too expensive to order online or I just couldn’t find the person who I bought it from.  Not to mention, I just love making my own stuff.

First off let me start by saying, everyone calls this a body butter but it’s more of a body balm, and I’ll explain this.  In order to get the creamy consistency that you see in your store bought body butters, you would need to add a synthetic additive.  Well, doesn’t that defeat the  purpose of all natural?  So with that being said, this will melt to an oil in extreme heat and harden in the cold.  But it’s ok because it all works the same.  Since it’s all natural and does not have added water, it’s very concentrated.  Just start with very little and use more as needed.  It will be hard at first but will melt quickly with your body heat.  I love this product and it’s now all that I use.

Healing?  Why do I say healing?  Well, look at the ingredients.  Everything I’ve listed has some healing properties.  And it’s so versatile.  I use a little bit all over after a bath or shower and whatever little bit is still left on my hands, I’ll lightly apply it to my hair.  it helps with dry hair & frizz.  I’ve used it as a lip balm, hand & foot cream, hair cream, tattoo cream, and even on burns & minor skin irritations.  My mom says I’m a minimalist.  If you haven’t noticed, do love having less products and stuff that can be used for many, many things.


(Please feel free to alter the amount of each ingredient that fits your needs)

  • 1 cup Cacao Butter
  • 1 cup Shea Butter
  • 3/4 cup Carrier Oil– I say ‘carrier oil’ because you can use pretty much anything.  I would recommend looking some of these up to see what would work best with your skin type.  These are the carrier oils I like to use.  I can never settle on one so sometimes I use them all:  Grapeseed oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, vitamin e and jojoba oil. (If I have vitamin e, I’ll use 1/4 of that & 1/2 of another carrier listed above). A great recommendation is to use an herbal infused carrier oil.
  • 50+ Drops Essential Oil Again, use what you like or need.  I like to use lavender & frankincense.  The latest batch I made I also added Ylang Ylang & Copiaba.

So that you don’t overheat your oils, you’ll want to start with the cacao butter because it has the highest melting temp.  I used a glass bowl set in a pan of boiling water.  Once the cacao butter is almost completely melted, add the shea butter.  Then, once that is melted, remove from heat and add your carrier oils.  Stir well.  You can let it set until it’s just hard at the top.  Or if you’re impatient like me, you can put it in the fridge for a few minutes.  Once the top starts to harden, add your essential oils and use a hand mixer to whip the body butter to the consistency you desire.  Just remember, it will not stay at this consistency unless you use an additive.  If you find that it’s still very oily, put it back in the fridge a little longer.  Just don’t do like I’ve done and totally forget it in the fridge…. it will harden like a rock!  I like to use small mason jars to store my body butter/balm in.  It may feel oily when you first apply it, but just wait a minute and it will soak in.  Since it’s all natural it will soak in and not sit as a film on your skin.

Facial Serum (3 ways)

** Final updated recipe at the bottom of this page**


  So I grew up with oily skin.  I kept trying to fight it by drying it out.  I even had a medicated face wash that dried my skin out so bad I started bleeding.  So one day I heard something that really made me think.  They said “the best way to combat oily skin is to stop drying it out.  The more you dry it the more your skin freaks out and becomes more oily.”  Well yea, that makes sense.  Everything I tried only lasted a few hours.  So I did a bit of digging and found the oils that are nutritious for your skin and face.

  • Carrier oil:  Here you can find out about different carrier oils and which one would best fit your needs.  I like to use multiple in some of my recipes.
  • Frankincense:  Oh what isn’t Frank good for?  It’s just an overall magic oil.  I suggest you google ‘benefits of Frankincense on face’.  It’s another great oil for anti-aging, aids in healing, it’s an astringent, evens skin tone, etc.
  • Lavender:  Lavender is another powerhouse oil.  It also helps even skin tone, soothes skin inflammations, supports skin aging, etc.
  • Copaiba: Well, honestly, I put this shit on everything (in the Frank’s red hot old lady voice LOL).  Every roller bottle I make I add this to it.  When you add it to other essential oils, it intensifies that oil.  Plus it reduces the appearance of blemishes, promotes a youthful, radiant glow, also aids in skin irritations, etc.
  • Roller Bottles:  I like using these because they’re cute, easy to travel with and you use less when you’re not pouring it into your hand.

  For this I love using the roller bottle.  But I’ve used empty YL bottles too.  I add 15 drops of Frankincense and 7 each of Lavender & Copaiba.  Then I fill the rest with carrier oil(s),  Shake and enjoy.

Obviously when you buy your essential oils, make sure to use my link 😘



One of my favorite things about making my own products and using Young Living is that I can alter my product to match what my needs are.  So lately I’ve been using hemp seed oil as my carrier oil and I love it.  So here’s my updated recipe that I’ve been currently using:

Hemp Seed Oil:  Moderates oil production, moisturizes & soothes inflammation and has anti-aging properties.

Fill your 15ml roller bottle with hemp seed oil and leave just a little room for your other oils.  Add 15 drops of Frankincense, 7 drops each of Lavender & Copiaba and lately I’ve been adding about 4 drops of Tea Tree.  That’s it.  Shake to mix and enjoy. 


Here’s my current glow-up face oil.  Remember, we are aging and our skin is always changing so my routine has grown and changed with me.  It’s fun making our own products to match our needs.

10-15 drops Frankincense
5 drops Copaiba
5 drops Lavender
3 drops Tea Tree
3 drops Blue Tansy
Fill with YL CBD Beauty Boost
or 1/2 Beauty Boost & 1/2 carrier oil of your choice (I prefer jojoba oil)

Dry Shampoo

DIY Dry Shampoo

I wish I could go days without washing my hair. But the truth is, I’ve always had oily hair. So years ago I discovered dry shampoo and was thrilled. But… a) they come in areosol cans, b) I had to hold my breath when using them and close my eyes because the smell is so strong and c) it’s effing expensive. Anyway, this was a big ‘NO’ all around. So I decided to find a healthier, cheaper option and here’s what I now use …. corn starch… yup, cheap, easy and natural. I just fill this airtight container with a few tablespoons of cornstarch, about a half tablespoon of cocoa or cacao powder (if you have dark hair) and a few drops of my favorite essential oil. I like to use peppermint because it pairs well with the cocoa. But that’s it. I shake and apply with a large makeup brush. When you get it on the brush just tap the excess off so you don’t use too much.

You can purchase these items on Amazon:

  1. Corn Starch
  2. Cacao Powder
  3. Large Makeup Brush
  4. Airtight Jar (this one is super cute)
  5. Peppermint Essential Oil
