First Aid

While I’m not knocking cold compresses and Band-aids (though we have a natural replacement for those, too); many of the items found in your normal first aid cabinet can easily be substituted with natural products like essential oils.

Basic Bug Spray

LOTS of essential oils work to repel bugs.

There’s not just one perfect combo. You’re not limited to the one recipe you stumble across on Facebook or the one that your friend tells you about. Those may be great, and you may love them. Then you’re all set. But if not, I hope to give you options so that you can easily make a custom bug spray that your family loves.

Comforting Cocoa Natural Diaper Rash Butter

Cocoa butter is rich with skin-loving fatty acids and vitamin E, and it acts as an antioxidant. Its texture is very firm, smooth, and a bit powdery on the surface when it’s solid, and it melts into a silky liquid on your skin. It is often used to restore very dry, cracked skin and to replenish aging skin. It is deeply moisturizing, nourishing, and protective.

That’s it! No essential oils needed! You will need a 2 oz (60 ml) glass jar, though.
