Final Review on Body Spray

Due to my EXTREME tardiness on making this one, I combined the "thoughts on process" and "final review" below...

My Final Thoughts:
Cons- Not sure I love the smell of the essential oil I used (lemongrass). 

Pros- Easy to make, inexpensive, makes a boat-load. As long as you like the essential oil you chose, you could probably make this body spray (with the first round of ingredients you purchased) for years to come without having to refill your stash.

Overall- If you are looking for a light, refreshing, inexpensive DIY body spray, this is for you. It is relatively inexpensive to collect all of the ingredients ($10 max) and as I mentioned before, once you purchase what you need, you shouldn't need to re-purchase for a very long time. The downside is experimenting with the different essential oils and finding which one you like. If you have a favorite scent already, this will probably come very easy for you but I have the hardest time when I'm in the EO aisle picking a favorite. I chose lemongrass because it has a slew of properties (click the links to read more) that are fantastic! Some include: relaxer/nerve-calming, insecticide = great for summer, anti-depressant, etc. -it even reduces gas in the intestinal tract! I mean, what more could a gal ask for? I also decided to use lemongrass because I wanted something unisex that (if he so desired) could be used by both my Husband and I.

I decided to combine a few of the recipes I found and make mine with 1 tablespoon witch hazel, 1 cup water, 10 drops lemongrass, and 1 drop rose otto for fun. I then just shook it all up and voila! If you are looking for a very light, fresh, and well, "lemony" scent then you will love this combination. I have found that I don't like the smell very much when I first spray it, but once it has settled in I love it. By the way, this scent seems to linger for quite a while, much longer than some of my store bought ones. My biggest complaint with the lemongrass is that it's not strong enough. I decided after making this that I kinda want a spray that makes me smell like I just got out of a Grecian bath of rose petals and lavender... too much? Ha, either way I want something strong and beautiful, this is more light and fresh (which is normally right up my alley!) so I may give it another go with a few different essential oils until I find the perfect combo. Until then, I plan on keeping this in my fridge to make it extra refreshing to use throughout the summer.

*As a side note I will say that after using my bronzer with rose otto for awhile, I really like the scent that it leaves me with and have gotten kind of spoiled with the bronzer/ perfume duo.*

  3. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

Is it simply me or does it appear like a few of the remarks look like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
