Living a healthy lifestyle goes beyond real food – it’s important to use non-toxic products in our homes as well. What we put on our skin and clean our homes with has as much effect on our health as the food we put in our body. This summer, try making some of your own non-toxic body care products like bug sprays, lip balms, and skin healing remedies.
I’ve been buying non-toxic home and body care products for years but recently have started making my own from simple ingredients and essential oils. When you use high quality essential oils in these products you get many therapeutic benefits and can tailor their non-toxic scent to your likes. It’s also cost-effective and a great family project to do together with your kids.

Tropical Traditions Unscented Massage Oil – this is my favorite carrier oil for the body. The unscented version is a blend of these high quality oils: Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, organic macadamia nut oil, organic jojoba, and organic Virgin Palm Oil.
They also carry a great organic hair oil which I love adding my own essential oil blends to.
