Young Living Lovin - February 2016

Ahh yes, the sexy month in which we're reminded that L-O-V-E means a Pandora bracelet and a box of stale chocolate from last year's CVS stock. I'm kidding. Sort of.


The commercialism of February aside, I LOVE that there is a month with an emphasis on LOVE! Love is as fundamental to existence as air. Give it, receive it, gather it, share it, spread it on thick, and leave footprints of it wherever you go. And do NOT leave YOURSELF out of the love fest! Treat yourself with love and goodness always.

BETTER/CLEANER Than LUSH Bath Bombs

This bath bomb recipe is AMAZING! They fizz and soothe exactly like LUSH bath bombs with ONLY FIVE INGREDIENTS vs. their average of twenty-five. When I use these as foot soaks, my feet are all like, Girl, I love you. Thanks for treating us right. We've got a sweet shorthand like that. Let me know if you try the recipe!


Supplies:

  • 1 cup citric acid (granules, not liquid)
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 8-10 drops of each Young Living EO (Get creative, but you can't go wrong with Lavender or Stress Away!)
  • Silicone molds or paper cupcake liners
  • Food coloring (optional)


Steps:

  1. In a medium size bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients (citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch) and set aside.
  2. If you’re using food coloring, now would be the time to add it into the dry ingredients. I found that using your hands is the way to go in terms of mixing. Start with just a few drops, and work up to the color intensity you'd like.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine your oils. While stirring, gradually add these to the bowl of dry ingredients. If you pour too quickly, the liquid will create a reaction with the citric acid.
  4. Use your hands to knead everything together inside of the bowl until your ingredients start to clump together. The result should feel almost like damp sand while building a sandcastle.
  5. Scoop the mixture into whichever mold you’re using, and pack it down tight. The back of a spoon works perfectly to press your mixture in place.
  6. Let your bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours, and they’ll be ready to go!
