{DIY} Essential Oil Bath Salts and Body Butter with Jennifer Carver

Pamper Yourself Make + Take with Blossoming Mommy and Baby's Essential Oil Guru, Jennifer Carver! 

Essential Oils

Hi friends! Can you believe it is almost Christmas?! It is blowing my mind that we are almost done with 2016! What an amazing year it has been; so much to be thankful for!

This past weekend we had our December Make + Take, themed Pamper Yourself Party! We made Young Living Essential Oil infused Bath Salts and Body Butter!

We brunched on Crescent Apple Roll Ups, Coffee Cake, Fruit, Coffee, and Peppermint Essential Oil Hot Chocolate! So yummy!

This Make + Take was so much fun for so many reasons, but my favorite was everyone getting to choose their own oils for their goodies! I loved seeing what everyone came up with and their excitement and creativity! Some of the favorite oils wereStress Away Essential OilPeppermint Essential OilChristmas Spirit Essential OilLavender Essential OilCedarwood Essential OilPalo Santo Essential Oil, and Tangerine Essential Oil!

A few friends made extras to give as gifts and who doesn’t love getting the gift of Young Living to pamper yourself with during these winter months (or all year long)! We had a wrapping station with gift tags, ribbon, and fun washi tape to decorate with!

We pre-whipped the Body Butter in a big batch and filled the jars (the recipes make 4 oz. mason jars) so that everyone could just add the oils they wanted! We put the Coconut Oil and Raw Shea Butter in the Kitchen Aid with the whip attachment and let it run for 10-15 minutes and it turned out so smooth and silky! The first batch I made (at home for myself) I clearly did not whip long enough, it was good but not as silky as this batch! So luxurious! I use the Body Butter daily as a moisturizer and I do not typically take baths, so I sprinkle a bit of the Bath Salts into the bottom of the shower and it is amazing! A few of my favorite oils to add to either are Lavender Essential OilFrankincense Essential Oil, and Gentle Baby Essential Oil!

After talking about the everyday oils that come in the Premium Starter Kit, we talked about something I am super passionate about and that is the Thieves householdline and the amazing chemical free options that Young Living offers!

Young Living offers such a variety of products in the Thieves line; Thieves Household CleanerThieves Laundry SoapThieves Dish SoapThieves Automatic Dishwasher SoapThieves Fruit and Veggie SoakThieves Waterless Hand Purifier, Thieves Essential Oil Infused Cough Drops, Thieves AromaBright ToothpasteThieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash just to name a few!

One of my favorite things about the Thieves line (besides that it actually works!) is that in the caution section on the back of the products it says “If swallowed, drink plenty of water to dilute”. It is such a comfort knowing that if a kiddo gets into it, it is safe. The Thieves line is plant based, free from all dyes, synthetic perfumes, SLS, SLES, formaldehyde, and phosphates.

I love these Make + Takes and getting to share my passion for Young Living and chemical free living with friends and family! It is such a blessing!

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I cannot wait for what 2017 holds!

XOXO, Jennifer Carver
