Focusing Roller Bottle Blend With Essential Oils

When it comes to staying focused, I struggle.  It’s not that I don’t want to pay attention, rather,  I have no power over thoughts that drift into my head as I’m trying to pay attention.   Luckily, I have a terrific Focusing Roller Bottle Blend that keeps my mental energy from straying.

DIY FOCUSING Roller Bottle Blend

Why Meadowfoam Seed Oil?

Meadowfoam Seed Oil is a highly stable odorless and almost colorless carrier oil.  I love Meadowfoam Seed Oil’s ‘glide’ too.  Plus, it penetrates well and doesn’t leave you feeling oily.  It is excellent for all skin types.

How To Use Your Focusing Roller Ball Blend

In conclusion,  my favorite place to roll this blend in on the back of my neck. Because the pores there contain sebum, it’s a great place for the essential oils to be able to absorb. Also, I  get the olfactory benefits of this focusing roller ball blend there too!

Homemade Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm

My Homemade Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm is the perfect blend of beeswax and honey.  In addition, I toss  in some organic Coconut Oil, and Kokum Butter for a sweet tasting winner.  This is a harder lip balm that will melt from the warmth of your finger to glide on and moisturize all year long.

Essential Oils For Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm

Ultimately, you can’t have a killer lip balm recipe without essential oils. This beeswax and honey lip balm is no exception. Due to being impatient for Summer, I added in both Peppermint and Rosemary essential oils.

If you are interested in the essential oils I use, pop over and take a look at how you can order Young Living Essential Oils too!


Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm

Pro Tip: I change up the essential oils in this beeswax and honey lip balm all the time. Peppermint and Lavender is another fun blend to use!

What Is Kokum Butter?

*this post contains affiliate links Raw Kokum butter is a hard, crumbly butter that melts well.  Unlike Cocoa Butter, Kokum has no scent.  Because many people find Coconut Oil to be drying, I use Kokum butter in this recipe.  Furthermore, I like Kokum’s moisturizing abilities even better than Shea Butter or Coco Butter.

Ingredients For Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm

*this post contains affiliate links

2 Tablespoons Beeswax

1 Tablespoon Organic Coconut Oil

1 Tablespoon Organic Raw Kokum Butter

1 Teaspoon Honey   I like to jazz mine up with some DIY   Manuka  Honey!

6 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil

3 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil

8-10  Lip Balm Tubes

* I doubled this recipe to fill my large 2 ounce  tin and three 5.5 ml  lip balm tubes.

The Method

1. First, measure your beeswax, coconut oil, and mango butter into a glass or metal container.  I LOVE this melting pot that allowing me to pour right from it.

2. Heat the water until simmering, stirring until everything is melted.  Don’t allow any water to get into the oil and butter mixture.

3. Next, remove the pan and add in the essential oils and honey.  Stir.

4. Finally, add the  liquid lip balm mixture into your containers.  To help keep the honey incorporated evenly throughout the mixture, you’ll need to stir and pour,  stir and pour.

Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm

Pro Tip: To prevent the ‘divots’ in the top of your tubes and metal containers, don’t pour until your mixture has cooled down some.   The cooler the mixture the less divots, or indentations at the top of your containers.

Also, you can  fill the  mixture above the line for the container, until it forms a rounded top without pouring over.

So, there you have it, once your Honey and Beeswax Lip Balms cool to room temperature, they are ready to us!

Pro Tip:  Sometimes when I use this combination of oils and butters, I get these little dots that look like they won’t melt all the way.  Since they wind up incorporating into the lip balm as it cools, there’s nothing to worry about.

DIY Raspberry Lemonade Lip Balm

Making your own lip balm is easy.  What’s hard is deciding what kind of lip balm to make.  Today I’m combining two of my favorite things, lemon essential oil, and freeze dried raspberries into a coconut oil and beeswax lip balm that is not just moisturizing but provides a little bit of summer time flavor too.  You’re going to love this Raspberry Lemonade Lip Balm!

Raspberry Lemonade Lip Balm Flavoring

The taste of DIY Raspberry Lemonade Lip Balm comes from freeze dried raspberries and lemon essential oil. If you are a regular around here you already know I order Young Living Essential Oils only!

Raspberry Lemonade Lip Balm Ingredients

*this post contains affiliate links

1/3 Cup Freeze Dried Raspberries

2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

1.5 Tablespoons Grated Beeswax or Beeswax Pellets (If you would like you lip balm to be softer, use only 1 Tablespoon Grated Beeswax)

3 Drops Lemon Essential Oil

Lip Balm Tubes

PRO TIP:  Mix it up!  Use Freeze Dried Blueberries or Strawberries or even Pineapple  instead of Raspberries!

Raspberry Lemonade Lip Balm The Method

I used my mortar and pestle to crush the raspberries.  Afterwards, the crushed raspberries were put into a strainer and the seeds were separated from the raspberry powder.

Raspberry Lemonade Lip Balm

Melt the coconut oil and beeswax.  I used  my *this post contains affiliate links stainless steel melting pot over a pan of hot water. Seriously folks, these little beauties are worth the money.  You can pour straight from the melting pot into the tubes, and clean up consisted of wiping it out with a paper towel!

double boiler

Next, add in the sifted raspberry powder and if you like, about a 1/4 of a teaspoon of sugar.  Stir this in well over the hot water, until sugar is melted.

Lip Balm Ingredients

Finally, pour melted lip balm into containers.

Because this lip balm doesn’t contain an emulsifier, the raspberry powder will want to settle to the bottom of your lip balm tube as it cools.  I poured my lip balm a little bit cooler than I usually do to allow it to set up quicker.

Pouring at a cooler temperature helped to keep the raspberry powder suspended better.  I just rewarmed my lip balm solution as needed.

Pro Tip: To get that clean, professional look to lip balm tubes, over pour your tubes just a bit.

Homemade Organic Brown Sugar Scrub Bar

I’m not a big fan of taking jars of sugar scrub into the shower with me. Water gets into handmade items and can cause all kinds of grief.  Instead, I love bringing a Homemade Organic Brown Sugar Scrub Bar with me.   Super simple to make, I just break off a piece of the bar and take that with me  into the shower.

What Makes Our Organic Brown Sugar Scrub Bar Terrific?

The exfoliation from the brown sugar smooths the way for the avocado oil to sink in and soften and nourish skin.

The combination of scents from the organic brown sugar combined with vanilla extract and orange essential oil is a favorite of mine. I also used a honey based melt and pour soup. Don’t hesitate to skip the vanilla extract and replace the orange with your favorite essential oil blend.

Ingredients For Organic Brown Sugar Scrub Bar

*this post contains affiliate links

1/3 Cup Avocado Oil

1.5 Cups Organic Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Honey Melt and Pour Soap Base

5 drops vanilla extract

20 drops Orange Essential Oil  ( Here’s how you can order Young Living Essential Oils)

Silicone Soap Mold

 Organic Brown Sugar Scrub Bar

Method For Organic Brown Sugar Scrub Bar

1. Melt soap base in microwave safe container (I use a Pyrex Measuring Cup) 20 seconds at a time, stirring well, until it’s melted. Watch carefully as scorched soap stinks, and you can’t scent over that.

2. Stir in Avocado Oil until well blended.

3. Continue to stir soap until it cools to the point of thickening. This is the hard part to explain. If you add your brown sugar to soap that is too hot, it will melt the brown sugar.

The soap needs to be cool, but still moldable. I stir until a skim starts to form, then I add just a bit of brown sugar and watch to see if it melts. If it stays pretty much solid, pour in the rest and then add vanilla extract and orange essential oil.

4. Scoop mixture into your silicone mold. Allow your organic brown sugar scrub bar to totally firm up. Remove bar from mold, and allow to dry out for at least a day before you use it.

PRO TIP: Depending on your skin type you may want to increase the oil to 1/2 cup or decrease it to 1/4 of a cup. After I add in the brown sugar, vanilla extract and essential oil, I have to scoop the mixture into the mold, it is too thick to pour. Play around with it until you hit your perfect mix of oil and brown sugar to meet your moisturizing needs.
