Top 5 Winter DIY Recipes
These are my favorite Top 5 Winter DIY Recipes using Young Living Essential Oils. Enjoy! xoxo
1) Homemade Body Butter
I found this recipe on Young Living’s Blog and it is super awesome! So be kind to your hard-working skin and make a big tub of this for the winter. This homemade body butter recipe will leave your skin moisturized and soft, thanks to rich cocoa butter and coconut oil. I love it’s whipped consistency that goes on smoothly and feels light to the touch.

1 cup organic coconut oil
1 cup organic solid cocoa butter (do not use lotion)
15 drops of your favorite topical/aromatic essential oil (we love Cedarwood, Lavender, and Frankincense essential oils)
Warm a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, then add coconut oil and cocoa butter. Melt until completely liquefied, about 4–5 minutes.
Pour into a glass mixing bowl and place in refrigerator for 30–45 minutes to cool and just set but not harden.
Stir in essential oils.
Using an electric hand mixer, whip until firm peaks form, about 10 minutes.
Gently transfer to a seal-able jar or container. Store at room temperature to avoid melting or solidifying.
Massage into dry skin!
2) Brown Sugar Moisturizing Hand and Body Scrub
This winter smooth hand and body scrub smells amazing, gently exfoliates, moisturizes and whenever I make it people go crazy over it! It’s that good. This is a must have recipe for the winter months even my husband uses it for his dry hands.
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1 tsp. V-6 Oil
1/3 C olive oil
10 drops Lavender Young Living Essential Oil or other topical essential oil of your choice.
In a large metal or glass bowl mix all the ingredients.
Then pour contents into an 8 oz. glass mason jar.
3) Winter Diffuser Recipes or Natural Air Freshener Spray
My Favorite Essential Oil Combinations:
- Cinnamon Bark and Orange Essential Oils smells like you just baked something delicious.
- Lavender, Cedarwood and Rosemary Essential Oils are the perfect winter blend.
- StressAway and Peppermint is so relaxing and makes your home smell like vanilla candy canes.
- Christmas Spirit Essential Oil is a blend from Young Living that is great all by itself!
You can use any of these combinations with a Young Living diffuser or use a glass spray bottle and add the oils with water for a delicious air freshener spray! For an 8 oz glass spray bottle I use a total of 20 drops of Essential Oils because I like a strong scent. You can use more or less depending on your preference. xoxo

4) Essential Oil Bath Salt Recipes
I enjoy taking a warm bath especially during the cold winter months. It’s a win-win in my book to smell something pleasing, pamper my tired muscles and boost my immune system with Young Living essential oils!
DIY RESPIRATORY SUPPORT BATH SALT RECIPE
Ok, you will love this DIY Winter Recipe for a relaxing bath! Who doesn’t love a warm soothing bath when the weather gets chilly?!?!? Light some candles, play some relaxing spa music and pamper yourself during this busy time of year.
1/2 Cup Epsom Salt
10 Drops of Lavender Young Living Essential Oil

Get a large bowl and mix all the ingredients together. Then fill a large glass mason jar and keep it in your bathroom next to your tub. When you want to indulge simply add one tablespoon to your warm bath water and enjoy! This really opens up the respiratory system and it’s all natural!
DIY LAVENDER-OATMEAL BATH SOAK RECIPE
1 cup Epsom salt
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup baking soda
5 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
15 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Grind oats in a food processor or coffee grinder into a fine flour-like texture.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until oils are evenly distributed.
Store in a glass jar and use about 1 cup of mixture per bath.
Tip: Create a pouch for your mixture using a sock or pantyhose to reduce floating oatmeal flakes in your bath.
Watch this video from Young Living they demonstrate how to make the Lavender Oatmeal Bath Soak!
5) Coconut Oil Sexy Skin Body Moisturizer
Coconut oil by itself is so fabulous for the skin, but if you add Young Living Essential Oils to it you can have smooth, sexy blemish free skin. Say hello to soft, smooth, sexy skin!
Take 1 cup of coconut oil and mix it with 5 drops each of Young Living Frankincense, Sandalwood, Cypress and Lavender Essential Oils. Apply at night before bed daily to your face and body. (My dog thinks I am a human lollypop when I apply this mixture!)
