Homemade Deodorant
What’s that smell?
Have you ever wondered, “What’s that smell”? and then embarrassingly discover that… Oops! That’s me.
Everyone has heard that regular, aluminum filled deodorants are not good for your body. Higher amounts of aluminum
have been found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease. My grandmother’s side of the family has strong
tendencies toward getting that disease, so I do try and avoid things that have been found as possible links.
Everything you put on your skin is absorbed into your body. Your skin is your largest organ.
I’m sure that many of us have tried to go natural with our deodorant, to avoid the possible negative side effects of regular
deodorants. Unfortunately, they often provide less than stellar protection against body odor.
I’ve had great success with this recipe that Lisa Dornstadter, a fellow T-Tapp Trainer, shared with me, -- as have several
other people!
Basic Natural Deodorant Recipe
1 T. baking soda
6 T. arrowroot or cornstarch
¼ c. extra virgin coconut oil
Place in a jar and melt in the sun
or on the stove top;
add a few drops of essential oil.
I suggest the use of Frankincense essential oil.
Frankincense is an oil used to prevent cancer, so
would make a perfect choice for something going
on and near the breast tissue. Not only does
Frankincense increase the activity of leukocytes
in defending the body against infection, it also
lifts your mood which is a major immune system
Other oils that could be beneficial to the breast tissue and
the lymphatic system are Rosemary, Lavender and Clove.
Many people, including me, have found this deodorant
works better than any conventional or natural product out
Peppermint Pattie Candy
Chocolate Peppermint Candies
You know what? I like candy. In fact, I really like candy. I have a hard time during
Halloween and again around Easter. There are a few candies in particular that I really love.
Jelly beans and York Peppermint Patties.
While I was doing some work on my virtual coaching class, I came across a healthier version of
peppermint patties. I’ve seen these recipes before, but they usually contain things like sweetened
condensed milk or corn syrup. I don’t like to use either of those cooking items. This recipe however,
uses all real food ingredients! Then I got to thinking….you know, I bet I could use peppermint
essential oil in place of the peppermint extract.
What is peppermint oil good for? Well I personally use it often. I consider it to be one of my favorite oils! I
use it to soothe an upset digestive track, eliminate gas, banish headaches and wake up my brain.
According to the Reference Guide for Essential Oils, therapeutic grade peppermint oil is:
Properties: Analgesic, antibacterial, anti carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory (prostate and nerves), antiseptic,
antispasmodic, antiviral, and invigorating.
Historical Uses: For centuries, peppermint has been used to soothe digestive difficulties, freshen breath, and relieve
colic, gas, headaches, heartburn and indigestion.
French Medicinal Uses: Asthma, bronchitis, Candida, diarrhea, digestive aid, fever (reduces), flu. halitosis,
heartburn, hemorrhoids, hot flashes, indigestion, menstrual irregularity, migraine headache, motion sickness, nausea,
respiratory function (aids), shock, skin (itchy), throat infection, varicose veins, vomiting.
Other possible uses: This oil may help anger, arthritis, colic, depression, fatigue, food poisoning, headaches,
hives, hysteria, inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), liver problems, memory, morning sickness, nerves
(regenerate and support), radiation exposure, rheumatism, elevate and open sensory system, soothe and cool skin
(may help keep body cooler on hot days), toothaches, tuberculosis, and add flavor to water.
Peppermint Pattie Candy
It is considered safe to consume. However, remember
that 1 drop of therapeutic grade, Young Living peppermint
essential oil is equal to 20 tea bags! The following recipe
makes about 36 candies, with 6 drops in the whole recipe,
you would have to consume 6 candies to eat one drop.
Treat them like medicine and don’t over dose!
Peppermint Patties
• 2 1/4 cup powdered sugar, (obviously, a natural sugar is best)
• 1 1/2 T Honey
• 1 1/2 T Water
• 6 drops peppermint essential oil
• 1 T butter or coconut oil
• 10 oz dark chocolate, (chips, bars, whatever) for dipping.
1. Beat together the sugar, honey, water, peppermint essential oil and the butter or coconut oil. I used butter. The mixture should be
thick and nearly kneadable.
2. Knead the filling on more powdered sugar until smooth, then wrap in saran wrap and freeze for 30+ minutes.
3. Shape into small balls and refreeze for 30+ minutes.
4. Flatten the balls into discs and freeze until firm.
5. Melt the chocolate in a double broiler. When the filling is hard, dip in the warm chocolate one at a time, setting on wax paper to
harden. Store in the refrigerator to keep them from melting.

It’s okay to enjoy these types of treats every now and then.
I take pleasure in using real food to make special treats.
Cheap Dryer Sheets
Cheap Dryer Sheets
Who doesn’t love fresh smelling laundry? I know I do, but I don’t trust that dryer
sheets are made from safe materials and I don’t like to spend money on them.
Hence, my latest idea: “cheap dryer sheets.”
These are not for static cling problems, but for fresh smelling laundry. As I said, we
don’t use dryer sheets because I don’t want everyone wearing whatever is in those
things. I do miss having fresh smelling laundry, so came up with this idea.
I noticed a few people using essential oils on cloths in the dryer to freshen
the laundry. However, I won’t take the time to get out a new item, or make
something to put in my laundry most days. It needs to be quick!
Then I noticed the old sock, ratty rag, or otherwise insignificant piece of laundry….hmmm….why not make that my
dryer sheet!
Here’s how I do it:
Choose your favorite essential oil and keep it near the laundry, (best stored out of the light).
When you transfer your washer clothes to the dryer, pick an article of clothing like a dark colored, or stained sock
and drop a few drops of oil onto it.
Throw it in with the rest of the clothes and start the dryer.
It’s that simple!
You’ll have fresh smelling clothes without consumer
chemicals or other unhealthy things.
Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer
Peppermint Mocha Creamer
Coffee! I really enjoy a cup of fresh coffee. Personally, I only enjoy really good coffee, (aka fresh roasted, fresh
ground beans) and don’t just drink it for the sake of drinking it (Folgers—blech!). I am also still not “grownup” enough to drink coffee black, I like it “frou-frou.”
However, the ingredients and taste of commercial creamers is vile. They sound so heavenly, and I admit that I
fall prey to the marketing and purchase them every so often. “AH! White Chocolate Raspberry has to be good”!
Nope, it still tastes like everything is artificial. Yuck.
Awhile back I was happy to discover a website with several recipes for coffee creamer using REAL ingredients!
However, most of them were still cooked. Even though you do pour hot coffee into the creamer, I wanted mine
to be raw because my body digests raw dairy products so much better.
Also, most recipes call for half and half or cream. I have goats, so I use goat milk in place of anything dairy. It
works great. I know that most of you will not have goats, but I wanted you to know that you can just use milk.
Whole milk would be best.
The Recipe
2 c. raw goat milk
1-2 T cocoa powder
2-3 T maple syrup
2-3 drops peppermint essential oil Place all ingredients in the blender and
process until the cocoa powder is distributed
throughout. Keep in the fridge and enjoy!
Joy Scent—Joy Received!
Joy Scent – Joy Receive
It used to be highly fashionable and common practice to scent your letters
with perfume. That was long before email.
How many times I have wished I could sprinkle a little Joy or Valor
essential oil on you virtually. Alas, I cannot.
However, the snail mail is making a comeback. I believe you will see
more folks returning to the use of mail. Email is cool, fast and simple,
but it cannot replace a real, tangible piece of paper in your hand.
In fact, I will be “scenting” my mailings by hand before I send them out!
Here is how I plan to do it…
Most essential oils will not leave a mark on your paper once they are dry. But there are many
essential oil blends that include oils that are not truly essential. Meaning, they are fatty oils,
expressed oils or absolutes. These oils might leave some discoloration on your paper.
For that reason, I suggest that you stamp, draw or otherwise make a mark to put your oils onto.
It could be a simple heart, which you then drop the oil inside. Perhaps a star, or if your card has
ribbon, place it on the fabric. Just be creative!
Seal it up, mail it off and share something wonderful!
How to Oil a Person:
A Quick Start Guide to Actually Using Your Essential Oils
The most common comment I hear about essential oils is: “I don’t know how to use them.”
Before this year I had heard of essential oils, but like many, just did not know the value of using them. I did not
understand the power that God placed in plants to heal disease, relieve nagging aliments and lift the spirits. Now that
I have tasted the amazing gift of essential oils, I won’t be without them anymore!
This article is a basic introduction to essential oils – a look from the start instead of jumping in the middle.
I want to answer three questions: what, why and how.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are the volatile liquids distilled from plants. They can be made from leaves, bark, seeds, stems, roots,
flowers, etc. Essential oils are made up of chemical constitutes, and the delicate balance of these chemicals can be
affected by many factors, such as the soil, the climate, the harvest, the region and the distillation methods. Essential
oils are made up of hundreds of constitutes. In fact, no essential oil has ever been completely evaluated to know every
single constitute. That is why chemists in a lab cannot make essential oils, only God can.
Unfortunately the FDA allows for any oil to be marked “100% pure” if the “carrier oil” contains at least 5% of the
pure oil it claims to be. Yes, a measly 5% can be labeled “100% pure”. You can already see that there is much room
for adulteration in the essential oil market! You can also note why it is imperative that you know your oils supplier
and distiller. Never use “essential oils” that are not truly 100% pure therapeutic oils. Adulterated oils can produce
results ranging from nothing, to something you really don’t want.
Producing pure oils is extremely costly due to the high volume of pure plant matter that is used. It can take several
thousand pounds of plant matter to extract 1 pure pound of oil.
Why are essential oils useful?
Essential oils are useful for countless reasons. In order to keep this from becoming a book, I will not cover all, -- but
just a few. Essential oils have a very small molecular size which allows them to actually pass through the skin. They
can deliver their oxygenating and regenerating properties this way very effectively!
Essential oils are also antibacterial, anti cancerous, antifungal, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, anti tumor, anti parasitic,
antiviral and antiseptic. Studies show they are more capable of destroying nasty things like MRSA than antibiotics!
Many oils contain sesquiterpenes which have the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier. That means they may
be effective in treating Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrigs, Parkinsons and other such diseases. It also means they have a
significant and direct effect on moods and can release stored traumatic emotions.
And we could go on and on…
How do I apply them to people?
Through the skin. Applying to the bottoms of the feet is the second fastest way to absorb oil, -- or behind the
ears and on the wrists. You can also apply essential oils by massage combined with a carrier oil. NOTE: You can
apply truly therapeutic grade essential oils “neat” or directly to the skin without dilution. Some oils are considered
“hot” and might burn the skin if they are not diluted though. If you apply essential oil to the skin and it becomes
uncomfortable, just dab fatty oil over it and that will slow the absorption.
Internally through a body opening. By mouth, douche, suppository, -- you get the idea. Not all oils are considered
safe for internal consumption. NEVER take oils that are less than therapeutic quality internally. Look for the GRAS
(Generally Regarded As Safe) statement before taking an oil internally.
Inhalation. This can be done with the use of a diffuser or vaporizer or simply by putting the oil on your hands and
holding them close to your nose.
In a bath. It is recommended that you mix your bath oils with a gel or soap so they don’t float on the surface and stick
to sensitive parts of the body -- [wink].
So there you have it -- your simple introduction to using essential oils!
