I'm being eaten alive!

I'm being eaten alive by insects! Have you been spending more time outside like I have and experiencing the same thing? I am covered in bites and they are itchy! I have commercial bug spray but I absolutely can't stand how it feels when I spray it on and I also wonder about the chemicals in it and what it is doing to me. This stems from when I did a Habit for Humanity build in Ghana in 2007. In addition to taking malaria pills we were also told to bring lots of bug spray to ward off the mosquitoes. As I was applying this insect repellant it was literally taking my nail polish off. This made me think about what I was doing to my body by applying it to me skin? However, the thought of contracting malaria outweighed the risk of not using the bug repellant. Fast forward to today and it still bothers me. Last year I went to an essential oil class since I am on quest to use more natural and less chemical. One of the items we made was natural bug repellant. Well I'm out of it and decided to make a fresh batch today using my DoTerra Essential Oils. Here is the recipe if you would like to make your own natural bug repellant.

  • 10 drops Peppermint Essential oil

  • 10 drops Lemongrass Essential oil (love the smell)

  • 10 drops Lavender Essential oil

  • 10 drops Geranium Essential oil

  • Fractionated Coconut oil

  • small spray bottle

Mix it all together and you are ready to go! If you make some drop me a line and let me know. kelly@kellywilliams.ca

Are you looking for something unique?

For a few years I've been making aromatic diffuser bracelets with semi precious stones. Amethyst, rose quartz, turquoise, labradorite, striped agate and carnelian are just a few of the stones I use.

This year I decided to make the investment and buy more stones to make beautiful Sun Catchers that are paired with Asfour Crystal balls and pendants.  These crystals have 30% lead content and they give many rainbow prisms when the sun hits them.  These Sun Catchers are a beautiful addition to the window of anyone's home.  If you would like to purchase one as a gift or for yourself please check out my store on my website.  If you don't see what you like send me a message and I'll see what I can make for you!
