Australian Tea Tree Oil Antibacterial Hand Scrub + FREE Recipe Guide

Stop polluting your home and make all natural household cleaners, detergents, shower sprays, bathroom disinfectants, and kitchen sprays.

  I have been slowly adopting new and all natural ways to replace the store bought products in my house and tea tree oil is an essential oil that is needed for many recipes.
Tea tree oil is one of the most versatile essential oils.  There are so many uses for it because of it's antibacterial properties.  It naturally fights acne, toenail fungus, repels lice, yeast infections, skin tags, cold sores, dandruff, ringworm, fleas, warts, psoriasis, and more.
  Use it to make your own shampoo, lotion, soap, face cleaner, body wash, and toothpaste too!



I decided to make an all natural antibacterial hand scrub to keep in the kitchen to help with messy hands.  The only problem I ran into was my own fault.  The recipe calls for medium fine sea salt and I used coarse.  It didn't work in my pump bottle so I had to use travel bottles I had.  Other than that, it came out great!
I mixed the wet ingredients first.
Then added it to the salt.  This is what it looked like mixed.
All bottled up.  One for me and one for my mom!
The next recipe I picked out to try is laundry detergent!  Let me know in the comments if you would like to see a post about that too!

Many essential oils are diluted to cut costs. Apothecary Extracts insist on the absolute best quality and have the tests to prove it's purity and potency.  Every large 4 ounce bottle also comes with a FREE 100 PAGE GUIDE.  (The antibacterial hand scrub recipe is in there!)  They provide you with all the ways to use tea tree oil to improve your life, and replace harmful cleaners around the house.

You can buy your own bottle on Amazon with free Prime shipping for $29.99.  This bottle will last you about a year of regular use.  So for $2.50 a month you can start living a healthy chemical free life!!

Do you use essential oils?  What do you use them for?

Custom Canvas Artwork Review + Giveaway



I just ordered from CanvasHQ.com and it was so easy!!  I uploaded a print that my photographer edited for me but I also had the option to get one from Facebook.  There were so many ways to customize the canvas too.  I chose the portrait orientation in an 11x14 size with wrapped sides.
Just a few hours after I placed my order I had a proof to approve in my inbox!  The editor had a small note stating that when she wrapped the image I lost part of my husbands eye so she changed it to black sides.  I approved the proof and the status changed on their site to being printed!  I can't wait to get my print and share a picture of it hanging up in my home with all of you.

Pricing for prints start at just $33.95 which is so affordable compared to what photographers charge!
