In my quest to live a healthier lifestyle and to combat all the junk that the government allows to be put into our food, I decided to try making my own deodorant. Of course I went to my favorite source Camp Wander. Rebecca is my go to for all Essential Oil remedies and recipes.
I discovered the wonderful power and healing of essential oils by reading One Good Thing By Jillee. Who then introduced me to her sister's blog, Camp Wander, where I have been able to learn even MORE about essential oils as well as learning about the wonders of Coconut Oil and the incredible Salve that she has created. I use her basic salve recipe found here but make my own additions/subtractions to it to suit my needs. I like the Salve SO much that I made my parents some for Christmas. My parents are in their 70's and aren't up for trying new things much but I think since I sent it to them they figured they might as well give it a try, you know "waste not, want not". I sent four jars, Healing, Dream, Aches and Pains and Plain. My thought process for this was as follows.... my mom had a partial mastectomy in April of 2013 so I knew she had some scars that were still fresh (she had come complications in the healing process) AND they live in a very cold/dry climate so they have very dry skin. My dad has thin skin that he cuts easily. So for those issues I wanted them to use the healing salve. My mom also has terrible pain in her hips and back from arthritis so I figured the aches and pains salve would be great for that. Then the dream salve - well who doesn't want better sleep! and finally the plain salve was just for whatever - dry skin or to add essential oils that I send them (like the black pepper, I want my daddy to try that when he has cold hands or feet).
I am Muscalero Apache. I am a Photographer. Capturing your Memories for a Lifetime is what I do! I love making my own products that we normally buy in the stores. I LOVE the use of Essential Oils - these are not NEW products but the products that have been used for YEARS to heal and promote optimum health. I will blog about what I know about these things giving you links to (and props) the original post.
