So they have picked 11 of those oils to bundle together and sell at a huge discount in the Premium Starter Kit! For week four, we will learn more about Frankincense, the holy anointing oil of the Middle East. It has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years and was valued more than gold in ancient times.

DIY All Natural Play Dough

Lindsay GrimesDIY

It is raining today, and Carsen and I can get cabin fever when we stay inside. So this morning we made all natural oil-infused play dough! It was a fun, easy, kid-friendly DIY… Although Carsen still didn’t love getting his hands dirty. He cracks me up! You can make this play dough with just two ingredients, but if you want to add color there is a third. Grab those littles, a mixing bowl and get ready for some really soft, relaxed smelling dough that could keep your kids busy for hours… Or if you have a toddler like me, minutes 🙂 What You Need: – 2 cups Arrowroot Powder (you can use cornstarch) – 1 cup of Young Living’s Lavender … Read More
