Candy Cane Body OilI love the smell of candy canes!  Since I can’t eat candy canes, I enjoy making skin care that smells like them.  I’ve previously shared my recipe for a candy cane toner, and this year, I am sharing my recipe for a candy cane scented body oil.  It’s very simple to make, and smells delicious!


1 oz of vanilla infused oil or your favorite carrier oil

6 drops of peppermint essential oil


Pour the vanilla infused oil or carrier oil into a one ounce bottle.  Add the peppermint essential oil, cap, and shake well.


To make vanilla infused oil, see my previous eco living article on how to make many different vanilla products, including vanilla infused oil, extract, and glycerite!  If you haven’t made a batch of vanilla infused oil yet this year (it takes time to infuse the vanilla beans in a carrier oil), then use your favorite, plain, unscented carrier oil.  Good carrier oils that you may like are almond oil, apricot oil, jojoba oil, or camellia oil, which work for most skin types.  But you can use any oil you like.  Your body oil will still

Eco Living: Citrus Vinegar

When I think of winter, I think of citrus!  I like using the peels to make citrus vinegar.  I love citrus vinegar because it can be used for multiple purposes.  I use citrus vinegar as a general all purpose cleaner: it is a great cleaner for counter tops, sinks, floors, bathtubs, and more!  I often recommend it for skin and hair care.  I like adding citrus vinegar to foods: it makes a delicious, fruity vinaigrette.  Best of all, citrus vinegar can be made year round, and not just during the cooler months.  Here is my version of this awesome wonder.



Vinegar (enough to fill the jar)

Citrus peels (any amount)

A glass jar (any size)



In a glass jar, add the citrus peels.  Pour in the vinegar, and make sure you add enough vinegar so that it covers the peels

Healthy Living: Caring for Dry Skin Naturally

Help for Dry Skin 

Dry skin is caused by a lack of production of sebum, or oil, which is the skins’ natural moisturizer.  The lack of sebum decreases the skin’s ability to retain moisture, so dry skin is often dehydrated as well. Dry skin often appears delicate, with fine, small pores.  It can develop unsightly flaky or ashy patches that can peel. Dry skin can be triggered by menopause or other hormonal changes.  This type of skin needs a lot of moisturizers and protection.


  1. Bathe less often. Sometimes bathing every other day can alleviate dry skin.
  2. Use warm, not hot water in the shower or bath.
  3. Use mild cleansers instead of harsh, drying ‘detergent bars’.
  4. Use moisturizers regularly. 

Natural Ingredients May Also Help 

Look for products with the following ingredients, as they may help combat dry skin:
