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


If you have been following me here or at 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!



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!
