Quick and easy tip for clean make-up brushes!
My daughters love their make up even though they wear light makeup and don't wear it often, they made their own little make up brush scrubbing board with a clipboard and hot glue (google it you'll find many instructions on the web) and this dōTERRA DIY recipe.⁣

Makeup Brush Cleaner⁣

2 tablespoons Fractionated Coconut Oil⁣
5 drops Melaleuca essential oil⁣
5 drops Grapefruit essential oil⁣


Method:⁣

Add Fractionated Coconut Oil and essential oils into a small bowl.⁣
Swirl your brush in the oil for 30 seconds, or until you see the makeup stored in your brush start to come out.⁣
Rub in a circular motion on the palm of hand to help get the makeup out.⁣
Rinse the brush under warm water. Gently squeeze brush bristles until clean, and the water runs clear. ⁣

** Please note: Make sure to point the bristles down when running under water. Direct water contact may loosen the glue where the bristles are attach and shorten the life of you…

Lotion bars!

Eeep, it's Christmas super soon!
Do you need last minute gifts that are useful and wholesome, and quick to whip up? I remember buying my daughters some lotion and bath products when I didn't know any better... now I cringe at what they may have put on their skin!

These natural moisturising lotion bars should do the trick!

What's a lotion bar?
It looks like soap, but it's lotion.
It is firm but melts when applied to your skin.
It's normally a combination of wonderful butters, and oils and some wax to create a solid but spreadable final product.

Nourishing and soothing do your dry skin all you need to do is massage the bar on your skin and let your body's natural heat melt the lotion, then do what you normally do with lotion, spread it and enjoy its beautiful aroma!

Ingredients:

½ cup coconut oil
½ cup cocoa butter
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil1 cup beeswax
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup Shea butter

Summer Essential Oil Safety

The summer months are the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors with your family and friends. We know that many of you will be hitting the pool, enjoying family barbecues, or spending time in the camping or at the beach. We want to ensure that you and your family stay safe this summer, and are also able to use your essential oils in the most effective ways possible.



General Oil Safety Always check the label on your dōTERRA Essential Oil/Blend bottle.
Each essential oil has specific directions for use. Look at the labels and follow direction closely, especially if you are trying oils for the first time. Many oils need to be diluted with a carrier oil. For application convenience, many of dōTERRA’s most popular oils are pre-diluted with a carrier oil as part of our Touch line. The Peppermint touch roller is a summer favorite for many because of its cooling effects on the skin. When applying to your face, avoid contact with your eyes, nose, or ears.
