All Natural Homemade Outdoor Spray

I’m  sharing with you today a super quick and easy recipe to make your own homemade outdoor spray that actually works.

Simple ingredients, including the essential oils that all come in your Young Living Premium Starter Kit, will have you sailing through summer without ruining your time outdoors. Plus, this recipe only cost me $7.36 to make and that included the spray bottle. Talk about being frugal and efficient all at the same time!

Most outdoor sprays have DEET in them and that can be nasty stuff. If I don’t have to use chemical-filled sprays on my family, I certainly won’t. Here’s the easy peasy recipe!

DIY Morning Citrus BLAST Body Wash

DIY-Morning-Citrus-Blast-Body-Wash

Hello to all of you who are visiting for the ‘DeTox Your Home‘ series which began yesterday over at MyBlessedLife!   We left off yesterday with Brandy sharing her Summer Misting Spray – so I am here to start off the rounds for today!

I have to admit on the scale from 1 to 10 of being a “make your own” kinda gal – I am about a 4.  There are only a few things that I will step out and do, not only for time value but it also depends on how important it is to me – one is body wash!!  

When I tried a recipe for DIY Homemade Body Wash this past summer, it was a huge hit.  Not only for me, but for all you who left comments and tried it for yourself.

I love a good body wash – and one that will wake me up in the morning is even better – plus this one smells very much like SPRING!   Here is the Easy Peasy Recipe:

DIY-Body-Wash-Ingredients

DIY Morning Citrus Blast Body Wash

8 oz of unscented liquid Castille soap  {here is the brand I use}

40 drops Young Living Orange Essential Oil

40 drops Young Living Grapefruit Essential Oil

3 droppers Vitamin E Oil   (optional – I add it to the body wash to help protect and repair the skin)  {here is the brand I use}

DIY-Body-Wash-Step-1

 Pour 8 oz of liquid soap into a glass measuring container – do not use plastic due to the citrus oils! 

DIY-Body-Wash-Step-2

Add 40 drops Young Living Orange Essential Oil

DIY-Body-Wash-Step-3

Add 40 drops Young Living Grapefruit Essential Oil

DIY-Body-Wash-Step-4

Add 3 droppers Vitamin E Oil  

Mix together and store in a GLASS container for use – again, do not use plastic due to the citrus oils.  I found my cute bottle with a stopper at Hobby Lobby – but you could also use an Olive Oil dispenser, that was what I originally had tried to find, but this was cute and just the right size!

Not only does this body wash smell incredible – the 100% pure therapeutic grade oils that Young Living is known to provide.  Even though these oils are classified as dietary – they have an amazing smell and the aroma is to die for!!  You will want that refreshment in your morning shower!

Orange Oil  has a rich, fruity scent that lifts the spirit while providing a calming influence on the body. Orange brings peace and happiness to the mind. It is rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene and aids in maintaining normal cellular regeneration

Grapefruit Oil  has a fresh, citrus aroma that is energizing and uplifting. Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it is nourishing to the skin.

If you try out the recipe, I would love to hear what you think!

Are you ready to jump in to this wonderful world of caring for yourself and your family naturally with essential oils?? The time is now!
