Sunflowers and Apples Mantel

The fading out of Summer and the entering in of Autumn is a bittersweet time.  We hate to see Summer end, but we love the anticipation of Autumn as well.

We decided to say farewell to Summer and welcome Autumn and  decorated our mantel to reflect that transition with sunflowers and apples.

Grapefruit Coconut Oil Body Spritz

We hope you happened to catch our two previous posts on essential oils. We shared with you how to make your very own  Copycat "T" Anti-bacterial Oil and diy Essential Oil Perfume.

 Today we present our most favorite essential oil body recipe Cellulite Grapefruit Oil Body Spritz.

And who doesn't need a little help with this area!!!!

This is what we are referring to.

Since we are the fugal gals, we searched the internet for recipes for a version of the well beloved, high priced (but well worth it) oil and made a copycat version of our own appropriately named...
