Nasal Spray


Note:  I like to use Sea Salt.  Any salt will work, but sea salt has more health benefits. Below are 2 of my favorites.

  1. 1 cup distilled water
  2. 1/2 tsp salt
  3. Pinch baking soda
  4. Bring to a boil in small saucepan
  5. Cool, then pour into sterilized nasal spray bottle


**For a super boost, I add 2 drops of Doterra Breathe essential oil. 

This powerful oil opens up my sinuses and helps clear problem congestion out.**

Winter Skin Care Remedies
(and Spring, Summer, Fall)

This is my absolute favorite of all home remedies for dry skin!  You won't be able to keep it off your skin once you try this.  Not only is it a fantastic dry skin cure, it smells delicious!

Dry skin lotion doesn't always do the trick.  Why?  Because our bodies get robbed of oils that they need to keep our skin supple.  Lotions and creams don't have the oils that are necessary for this.

I only use DoTerra oils, simply because of their purity and effectiveness.

  1. Fill a one ounce spray bottle with the coconut oil.
  2. Add 20 drops each of the Lavender and Peppermint oil.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Enjoy!

TA DA!!!  This is better than any dry skin lotion.  These 3 oils will make enough to last for several months.   For an extra boost, follow with the hand moisturizer of your choice.  You're going to love this!


The finished product!

Never miss the opportunity to enjoy it to the fullest....after spraying it and rubbing it in...cup your hands over your face and inhale.  Mmmmmm....heavenly....

Make your own eyewash
(Allergy and Pink Eye Remedy)

  1. 1/2 cup boiled water (purified)
  2. 1/4 tsp Boric acid
  3. Cotton balls
  4. Bathe eye(s) twice a day.
  5. Keep covered
  6. Cheap and easy!

The best ice pack ever!
So easy....

  1. 1 1/2 cups water
  2. 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
  3. Put in freezer bag and freeze.
  4. Voila!  A mushy ice pack that can be used over and over again!

Static Hair?

Simply spray a little Static Guard on your brush, then brush through your hair.  Voila!  Instant static remedy!
