2 Birds Deodorant

2 Birds Deodorant
This deodorant recipe is an adaptation of the recipe my mom shared with me.
She said its the only deodorant she has re-applied post-funk and noticed she smelled better.  I noticed the same thing!  For hers, she used Lavender and Tea tree oils in place of the Purification and Frankincense.  My friend Samantha has also used this recipe and shared with others, and found that a few people had instances where they had odor issues still, but only in high stress situations, so she added 8-10 drops of Stress Away to it, and that seemed to solve the issue.  Please note, this recipe will not stop you from sweating, as that is a natural body function necessary for eliminating toxins.
You may be asking why Purification and Frankincense?  And what's up with the funny recipe name?   Well, I had learned that Purification is great for getting rid of bad smells, and that Frankincense happens to be great for promoting breast health.  This recipe was designed to help me do something every day that will help keep me smelling fresh and doing something great for my breast health at the same time, thus two birds (with the same stone).
Feel free to change the oils to suit your own preferences, though I highly recommend an oil that contains at least some tea tree oil.  One more idea:  I love the smell of GeneYus by Young Living as a more masculine scent, great for promoting focus and mental clarity.  Drop a comment with the oils you used in your blend, or how this recipe is working for you!
Not sure where to find Shea butter?  Look here.  You can also substitute Cacao butter - it makes the end result a bit more solid, which is nice if you are putting in a deodorant tube instead of a jar.

Thieves Ningxia Spice Bars

Thieves Ningxia Spice Bars

Snack time with a Thieves twist!


If ever there was a way to combine the delicious, spicy flavor of Thieves Vitality with the berry goodness of the Ningxia Wolfberry, this is it.
My husband LOVES these bars!  Anytime I make them he raves about having them.  I love knowing that in addition to offering a nutritious and filling snack option, it has the healthy bonus of Young Living's Thieves Vitality Essential Oil and their Ningxia Wolfberries.  These are no bake, and require very little time in the kitchen.  They will need about 4 hours to chill in the refrigerator before they are ready to serve.  Place squares in cupcake liners on a plate for individual portions at a get-together, or wrap bars in wax paper for an on-the-go snack.
This is the kind of recipe that allows for some creative freedom.  If you need to follow along exactly, go for it, but feel free to play around with the type of nuts (peanuts, sunflowers, cashews, pecans, macadamia, etc)  nut butter (peanut, sunflower, hazelnut...), sweetener (agave, molasses, maple syrup, date syrup...) in this recipe to suit your dietary needs, or what you have in your pantry.  Add some raisins, chocolate chips, cacao nibs, or other dried fruits too.  Or throw in some cocoa powder!  Mix a drop or two of Orange Vitality or Ginger Vitality essential oil to the mix to add a little zip to it.  My friend added some of the Mineral Essence to the bars too - I love that idea for incorporating even more nutrition!  Just be sure the portions of dry goods to liquids (sweetener and nut butter) remains approximately the same.
