Oil Education 

Jojoba probably one of the most hydrating oils in the entire world and it does so in a surprisingly non-oily fashion. Jojoba oil contains many beneficial ingredients, including vitamin E, vitamin B complex, silicon, chromium, copper and zinc. It also can address the average person’s lack of iodine-rich foods, as it has a very high percentage of iodine at 82 percent — in part, iodine gives jojoba oil its power to heal. Jojoba oil is noncomedogenic, meaning it doesn’t clog pores. Jojoba oil is rich in iodine, which fights harmful bacteria growth that leads to breakouts. The antioxidants present in jojoba oil soothe fine lines, wrinkles and naturally slow down other signs of agingJojoba oil can also accelerate the wound-healing process, as indicated in a study done at the Department of Environment and Life Sciences in Italy. The results proved that jojoba oil speeds up wound closures and stimulates collagen synthesis; the study also noted that jojoba oil had extremely low toxic effects when used on the skin. A 2012 study conducted in Germany examined jojoba oil’s ability to reduce skin lesions and improve overall skin condition for 194 participants, who applied clay masks with jojoba oil to their faces two to three times per week; 54 percent of the participants reported that skin lesions were reduced significantly after six weeks of using jojoba oil.

One of the best oils for your nails is Myrrh. Myrrh essential oil is said to be the best essential oil for nail growth – it has wonderful moisturizing properties that protect the cuticles from dryness and the nails from brittleness, thinning and easy breakage.

Lavender essential oil is on of the most versatile oils. It has been shown to strengthen the nails and the cuticles, as well as keeping them moisturized. Its antibacterial properties fight off germs that can infect the cuticle. If you’re prone to dry skin on and around your cuticles, use lavender essential oil as it is moisturizing and helps hydrate skin.

Lemon essential oil helps brighten weak and dull looking nails and makes them look whiter. The high vitamin C content nourishes the cuticle and strengthens nails.

Frankincense is another one of the best essential oils for nail growth. It also protects the cuticle from infection and peeling because of its moisturizing properties and fights off nail fungus that is known to slow down nail growth.

Geranium essential oil which is one of the best moisturizing essential oils! It restores moisturize to dry cuticles and skin around the nails. It also has antibacterial and antiseptic properties that protect the cuticles and nails from infections and fungus, which inhibit nail growth.

Always check with your doctor to see if essential oils are okay to be used by you. 

Always use 100% pure and high quality essential oils.

Detox Bath

2 cups Baking Soda (I get my big bags from Costco)
1/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil (From Costco) 
1/2 cup Pink Himalayan Salt (From Costco) 
1/4 cup Red Rice Vinegar 
4 drops Lemon 
4 drops Peppermint 
4 drops Cardamom
4 drops Clove  
1 inspirational book 
1 glass jar of refreshing water with Lemon Oil and Strawberry Energy

Draw a hot bath and add the ingredients. Soak for at least 40 mins. Enjoy!

Nail Recipe #1 

3 drops Lavender
3 drops Lemon
3 drops Myrrh 
3 drops Geranium 
3 drops Frankincense 
Coconut Oil 

Add the oils to a 2-ounce glass storage bottle with a dropper top. Screw on the bottle's dropper top, wrap your hand around the bottle, and shake the formula vigorously for 2 minutes to completely blend all ingredients and gently warm to body temperature. Apply 1 drop to each nail and massage in with a soft flannel cloth for approximately 1 minute each oil. Use nightly. Follow with a moisturizer.

Nail Recipe #2 

1-2 drops Myrrh 
1-2 tsp Carrier Oil 

Mix and Massage a drop or two into your nails and cuticles 3 times a week. Don't do it more often than that because it will turn your nails yellow. 

Nail Recipe #3 

3 drops Geranium 
3 drops Lavender
2 drops Lemon 
4 TBPS Coconut Oil 

Mix well. Store in glass jar. 


5 drops Lavendar Essential Oil 
10 oz Shea Butter
4oz Almond or Grapeseed Oil or Avocado Oil
4oz Coconut Oil (solid form) 

Whip in mixer until fluffy. Stir in essential oil. 
Body Scrub 
1 cup White Sugar 
1/4 cup Olive Oil 
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract 
5 drops Lavender Essential Oil 

Mix well.   

Clarifying and Toning Face Wash 

  • 1 cup filtered or previously boiled (now room temp) water
  • 1/4 cup liquid castile soap: an all-natural, extremely concentrated soap made from 100% plant oils.
  • 5 teaspoons jojoba oil or another facial oil of choice 
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey: a wonderful antibacterial that helps to gently eliminate breakout-causing bacterial, and also helps calm the skin. This gives the wash its honey color.
  • 1 teaspoon tea tree oil: another great, all-natural antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal that will not only help kill acne causing bacteria on the skin, but also help preserve the wash.
  • 15 drops lavender essential oil: great for all skin types, it helps calm inflammation and eliminate bacteria.
  • 10 drops rosemary essential oil: another great, all-natural antibacterial.


Add the ingredients in the order listed (if you add the soap before the water, it will become a sudsy explosion!). Stir the mixture gently, mixing everything together. The castile soap and honey will cause the mixture to look cloudy. Put the mixture into your foaming soap dispenser and your facewash is complete! 

NOTE: this is the combination of ingredients that works well for my skin and the combination can be adjusted depending on your skin-type. For example, if you have drier skin, you may need less castile/more water and/or oil. Everybody is different and DIYs can sometimes be a game of trial and error. Luckily, once you have a base such as this one, you can easily add ingredients if necessary!
