A Note on Essential Oils
They are amazing to have on hand. They have a variety of uses including being added to many of your homemade products. Essential oils are the oil extracted from a plant by steam distillation. They are pure and highly concentrated and, so, a very little goes a long way. With essential oils always be sure to purchase from a trusted source. Essential oils are anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and antibiotic which make them ideal for many applications from cosmetics to medicines to cleaning products. Adding them to your products will also help to preserve and extend the life of your homemade creations.

and anti-microbial properties and is nice for inflamed or sensitive
skin. Always use cold-pressed or expeller pressed coconut oil which can
be found in most healthy grocery stores or health shops.
Why I Use a Glass Spray Bottles
They are a much better option than plastic ones as plastics contain unhealthy properties that can leach into your homemade creations. To preserve the integrity of your natural homemade products I highly encourage using a glass bottle. I use cobalt blue glass bottles which also can withstand UV contamination.
