Whether it’s a great time of year for homemade gifts or you are looking to switch from store bought to a more healthy selection of beauty products you can create just about everything you already use with essential oils. These days store bought beauty products can range from a couple dollars to a whopping $10 or more just for one item and they never seem to last that long. When you make you own you know EXACTLY was is going into them and you can feel safer about using those items with the whole family too without fear of other outside chemicals that we can’t even pronounce.
