This is a fun and super-easy recipe to make for yourself or someone you know who can benefit. What I like most about this recipe, and the others featured on this site, is that by using Young Living Essential Oils and other high quality ingredients I know I’m getting something wholesome for my body – so important in today’s world of questionable ingredients. Plus, making my own also means I am saving money over store-bought products.
