Meet Indra. You’re gonna like her (just look at that picture!). I love talking to her about essential oils because she makes using them so fun! Last time I saw her she said she’s replaced most of the products in her house with homemade, non-toxic recipes by simply pairing them with coconut oil or Dr. Bronner’s for just about everything! She’s been a real doll and shared some of her simple, effective home product recipes with us.
For my face cream and body lotion, I just add a few drops of 10 drops of Lavender and 10 drops of Juniper Berry to my bottle of Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Juniper Berry is a natural cleanser and detoxifier. Lavender supports sensitive skin and supports healthy cell turnover. Obviously two great ones for your face!
For a body wash, I use a bottle of liquid castile soap and add 15 drops of Wild Orange and 15 drops of Ylang Ylang. This lasts a long time!
I love the floral scent of Ylang Ylang and it helps balance hormones, promotes healthy skin and hair, and lifts mood while having a calming effect. Wild Orange is powerful cleanser and purifying agent, protects against seasonal and environmental threats, high in antioxidants, which are essential to overall health and uplifting to the mind and body.
And for an all-purpose cleaning spray, I use white vinegar and water with a tiny bit of castile soap and add a 5-10 drops of Lemon, Melaleuca & Peppermint oils.
Lemon, peppermint and melaleuca are all awesome cleansers and smell heavenly together.

BONUS: I just think that Indra is TOO CUTE! I had to share these photos of her because I couldn’t pick just one for this post.
