Natural Health & Everyday Wellness...
Summer is by far my favorite season, simply because sunshine makes me so happy. I'm just drawn to go outside when its a beautiful day. I also feel that I am able to really treat myself better physically and mentally throughout the summer than other cooler months.
Since I'm a teacher, summer is really my time for investing in myself through personal growth, educating my community, traveling, and enjoying my time with family and friends. It's when I can pour into my cup and others!
In a few more weeks summer will officially be here and we will be soaking up the sunshine in shorts, dresses, and swim suits. All the things I love! I understand that while I can be excited for this season it can also be a challenging time for other women. There may be some women who are fearful or stressed about exposing their legs in public. I want to help empower women to feel comfortable in their skin at any age.
It's important to feel good with our body and the skin we are in. It can be challenging as we age and experience changes with our body. I truly believe that you're on the right path by being here on my page. My purpose is to empower others by sharing knowledge, information, and resources to support our overall well-being. I hope these DIY recipes will help you in your self-care practices to support your body. Health has become my priority and I feel really good about the women I have become over the last five years. Making self-care a priority in my schedule is one thing that has really helped my self-esteem and mental health.
Now, self care is going to look different for everyone. My self-care varies each week and even throughout the day. At times it could be taking a mindful minute, engaging in vigorous exercise, a slow walk with the dogs, reading a book, drinking my first cup of coffee in the morning, practicing yoga, or even adding an additional step to my personal care routine. I have quiet a few recipes that I use and have shared over the last year.
Today, I am sharing this recipe specifically to support ladies with blemishes and fatty skin so that there's no fear in summer coming. This is a great body oil recipe specifically for ladies legs to support stimulation and circulation helping us smooth out our winter legs.
Whip up this body oil recipe and apply it after your evening shower. I have found that a 10 minute massage is optimal for my legs.

Learn About Grapefruit Essential Oil:
Grapefruit essential oil supports healthy skin with an uplifting aroma, it is a key ingredient in popular Young Living products such as Cel-Lite Magic™ Massage Oil, Highest Potential™, and Citrus Fresh™
Safety Tip: Remember to only use this DIY body oil in the evening and when not going to be exposed to the sun. Because citrus oil can cause photosensitivity, avoid applying lemon to exposed skin before spending time outside.
I have found the Essential Oil Desk Reference to be a big help in learning about essential oil safety. I have listed my favorite resources including other books on my supply page to support our community gather more information.
