This month we're going to be rounding up some of my favorite DIY gifts to make for your friends & fam this holiday season using doTERRA Essential Oils. (If you're a simple minded, not over the top kind of DIY-er, this post is for YOU.) 


Here are some of my favorite DIY recipes from doterrablog.com--they're simple & totally cute!

1 cup citric acid

1 cup baking soda

½ cup cornstarch

½ cup doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil 

8-10 drops favorite essential oil or blend

Silicone mold 

Note: Citric acid can be found at most major supermarkets in the canning section.

Tip: You could also use almond oil or olive oil in the place of doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Directions:

  1. In bowl, place citric acid, baking soda, cornstarch, and oil.
  2. Add 8-10 drops of the essential oil or essential oil blend of your choice.
  3. Mix well with spoon until soft dough is formed. It should have the consistency of damp sand.If the mixture is too wet, try adding a little more baking soda and cornstarch until consistency is correct. 
  4. At this point, you may add food coloring, dried herbs, or flower petals to mixture. 
  5. Place mixture in silicone molds. Let sit 24 hours before removing from mold.
  6. To use, drop in tub or shower and allow to dissolve.

Note: Choose an essential oil to best suit your needs.  For relaxation, try Lavender or Serenity®. For a mood boost, try Wild Orange, Citrus Bliss®, or Peppermint.
