You’ve probably noticed that I’m into essential oils lately! And there’s SO
MUCH you can do with these oils! I mean, seriously, the possibilities are endless! My sewing machine has been packed away for a few months (I’m mad at it haha) and it’s been way too nice outside to feel like crocheting. So, what’s a crafty girl to do… craft with my new passion, of course! “Gentle Baby™ is a soft, fragrant combination of essential oils designed specifically for mothers and babies. It helps calm emotions during pregnancy and is useful for quieting troubled little ones. It is also soothing to tender skin. Many of the essential oils in this blend are used in elite cosmetics to enhance a youthful appearance.” From http://www.youngliving.com. It’s also been out of stock, for like ever! So, when it came back in stock I HAD to get my hands on some! I’ve been seeing all these neat whipped body butters and creams so I knew just the thing to make with this! This is so simple and soooo heavenly! Here’s how I did it!
-small jar with lid (glass is best)
-Gentle Baby oil
-organic coconut oil
-bowl to mix in
Instructions: put a few scoops of coconut oil into your mixing bowl. My glass jar was reused from some foundation so it didn’t take much coconut oil at all! Mix with hand mixer until it’s creamy. This usually takes about 3 minutes or so. Add 5 drops of Gentle Baby and mix for a few more seconds to incorporate. Poor into your glass jar and you’re done! It will take about 2 days for the coconut oil to set again and when it does it will be light and fluffy just like a body butter! Enjoy!
Since starting my oily journey, I’ve began making diffuser necklaces! They are a great way to wear your favorite oil around with you all day! Plus, they are pretty too!
I give these free at my oily classes when people sign up! It’s a great way to send them home with something unique. I also let them use a drop or two of their favorite oil from the night 🙂 They have been a big hit!
Believe me… I wouldn’t have believed it myself until I tried it! Joy is an amazing blend of oils that has changed my life and helped me be a better mom and person like I want to be! I apply it to my wrists and over my heart every morning and can feel my emotions beginning to balance. I more than love this oil!
It comes in the premium starter kit along with 10 other amazing oils!

Look at this adorable hat I made for my youngest! Omg, I’m in love! Just took a basic beanie pattern and added the facial features. Nothing too difficult! The trickiest part was the triangles for the ears and nose and I’m not as happy with the nose as I’d hoped. It’s still a keeper!
