As a budget conscious crafter, my love for DIY projects goes beyond home decor and accessories.  I enjoy  learning about natural cleaners and beauty products and how to make them myself.  Essential oils are very popular right now, and there are tons of personal products and cleaning products that you can make yourself.

Essential Oils DIYsI asked someone to share some essential oils projects with me, and I’m sharing these recipes with you.  This is what she said:  “I LOVE essential oils for DIY projects. I quickly learned that you can make own cleaners and homemade products with them.  It has been an amazing journey. We have been able to make all natural, organic products for PENNIES! I want to share some of my favorite recipes with you.”

  2. Add coconut oil and shea butter.
