Summer = Outdoor Fun

Today's post is from ADoT's formerly behind-the-scenes gal, Krysta. We met years ago when we both lived in Utah, but we were just acquaintances. What brought us together was our love for EOs and needing someone to talk about them too - now we're great friends, even though we live states apart. 

Hello Friends,

One of my favorite essential oil (EO) books, that taught me a lot about implementing EO use into my life (aka the #eolife), is Valerie Ann Worwood's The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy

Wedding Day Kit

June has arrived and with it comes wedding season! I'm such a romantic, I just love weddings. All my favorite movies involve weddings: 27 Dresses, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, My Best Friends Wedding, Mystic Pizza, The Proposal..okay you get the idea. 

According to The KnotJune is the most popular month for weddings. I can see why, the weather is getting nice, there are so many flowers in bloom and gardens are sprouting making fresh food readily available. It is, in many areas, the perfect month.

Best FACE Forward *Part Two*

Last week, I talked about how my mom's advice to "always clean my face" is continuously in my head. In that post, I gave some great recipes for face care, that I tested. 
There are so many great recipes for different products (masks, mists, cleansers, moisturizers, etc) it was too overwhelming for just one post. Here are a few more great ways to put your best face forward.

Face Cleanser/Wash
I found this recipe on DIY Natural {click here} and used their variations to make it my own.
What you'll need:
1/4 c castile soap
1/8 c water
1/8 c rosewater
8 drops essential oils - 4 drops lavender, 4 drops chamomile
What to do:
Combine ingredients, mix well. Pour into a small container. Makes 4 oz.
Tips:  I used a 6 oz squirt bottle, wanting the extra room to shake up the ingredients before each use. Change the EOs to suit your skin type or scent preference. Check out DIY Natural's post for other ideas to make it fit you.
