I despise going to the store to shop. I would much rather hop on my computer and purchase what I need from Vitacost or Amazon.com. They ship it straight to my door as opposed to me loading four children in the van and trying to take them to the store by myself with incident.
There's always an incident. It never fails.
One of the ways I avoid the store and save money is by making my own products. I make my own deodorant with ingredients already in my pantry. Cleaning supplies are a breeze with basic ingredients and essential oils. There are 7 essential oils that I believe everyone should have on hand at all times.
While deodorant is a necessity, sometimes you just need to pamper yourself. You need something that will help you relax and fall asleep. Something that will make your dry, flaking skin, soft and smooth. A natural product that will ease the achy muscles in your legs after running or your neck and shoulders after a stressful day. Maybe even something that will give you that little pick me up in the morning to get the day started or in the afternoon when you'd rather grab a candy bar and soda.
I've got just the thing for you.

Whipped Body Butter Recipes
Whipped Lotion Base
Leave plain for a wonderful body butter or add Young Living Essential Oils to achieve these great lotions.
Sleepy Time Lotion
Amazing to use at night. I put it on my feet when I get into bed, and add my socks. It helps me sleep and moisturizers my feet!
Winter Skin Lotion
This was great for my itchy pregnant belly. It also helped with fading my stretch marks. My friend has had great success using on her son. No more eczema!
Ouch Relief Lotion
This is perfect for lower back pains, soreness after running, neck and shoulder pain after a stressful day, and a pulled muscle. You don't want to be without this lotion. It's a great one to always have on hand.
Pick me up Lotion
A great pick me up for those days when you just can't keep up. Instead of grabbing for that candy bar and/or soda, apply some En-er-gee Lotion for a little pick me up.
Most of the oils included in the recipes are also included the Premium Starter Kit.
