lavender & soap...The absolute BEST Lavender and Olive Oil soap is from Alziari's in Nice, France. My luggage smells like it as I always bring back as much as I can!
Homemade Lavender Mint Foot Scrub - Combine 1/2 cup of sea salt, 6 fresh mint leaves, and 2 tsp of dried lavender buds into your blender. Pulse the blender until all ingredients are ground. Empty contents into your jar, and add 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1/8 cup of jojoba oil, and 1-5 drops of lavender essential oils. Mix together until you have an even consistency throughout. Use about a quarter-sized amount onto each foot. Massage, rinse, and dry. Then you're all set!
Natural Bug Spray. Here’s what you’ll need: essential oils (citronella and lemongrass are musts, I also like lavender or you could use tea tree oil or geranium oil for tick protection), 14 oz. bottle of witch hazel (available in grocery stores & pharmacies usually close to the rubbing alcohol), a spray bottle (or two–one for home and one for the diaper bag/car), a jar for mixing, and a funnel.
