Recipes for Natural Living

I am on an adventure to find new recipes for living naturally. I will share them as I continue to learn and incorporate them into my own home!

Recipes for Natural Living

Beloved,

If you have been following me here or at proverbs31jewles.org Β for any length of time, you would know I want be a good steward of what God has given me. This involves living a natural lifestyle. When I hear the words, organic or holistic, my head turns to listen.

I have incorporated a couple of new recipes.

Wrinkle cream

The first one is a wrinkle cream which I found at Organic RN.

The ingredients are easy for find, either online or at your local health food store πŸ™‚

What I Used:

1/4 cup Shea Butter

1/4 cup Coconut Oil

8-10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

5-7 Lavender Essential Oil.

First, take your Shea Butter and Coconut Oil and place in a dutch oven. Cook until softened. Add essential oils and let sit, I placed mine in the freezer for 20 minutes or so. Do not forget! When done, mix together til fluffy with a hand mixer and then scoop into a mason jar. I doubled the recipe. I have been using it for a week and LOVE the results!

Cleanser

I found the recipe for a do it yourself cleanser @ Robinson Home Sweet Home.

This was easy! Find yourself a bottle with sprinkle openings such as a parmesan or spice bottle.

In a big bowl, mix together 2 cups of baking soda

1/2 cup of borax and your favorite essential oils. I used tea tree oil for it’s antifungal and antibacterial and Thieves for this antibacterial properties.

  1. Great, helpful post, Nancy. I am always looking for DIY, natural recipes to use around the house and in my daily hygiene. I’d love to make my own facial moisturizer – tell me, where do you find your shea butter? (That may sound like a silly question – I’m specifically wondering if you have found an unscented variety that doesn’t compete with the smells of the essential oils). Thanks for the pointers!

    1. Hi Cathy! So glad to hear from you! Thank you for taking the time to comment! I found my shea butter at my local health food store but I also found it on amazon. Here’s a link to the one I used. https://www.amazon.com/NOW-Foods-Shea-Butter-7-Ounce/dp/B000F4J8VI/ref=sr_1_8_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1475171672&sr=8-8&keywords=shea+butter I can say that the coconut oil smell is a little strong but I can still smell the lavender πŸ™‚

      Hope this helps!!
