you can drill holes in the bottom with a diamond cutting drill bit OR put an inch or two of pebbles/small stones at the bottom of the jar..the roots WILL rot without some kind of drainage ;)

I love using arrowroot powder instead of baking soda or corn starch because they are such fine powders! Great post www.westingwellness.com

You guys should do more hair tutorials for shorter hair! I love all these styles but can't pull any of them off because of my length. Specifically the braids!!

Shea Butter has natural antibacterial properties and is great for preventing stretch marks, for wound healing, and as an anti-aging treatment for skin.

I make a 2 parts sweet almond oil / 1 part castor oil mix and use it as a cleanser everyday. Castor oil has great anti bacterial properties. This combo calms my psoriasis right down. Second what someone said re baking soda, be really careful with baking sode, not for daily use on teeth and please dont use it on your hair more than a couple of times. Its PH level is akin to bleaching your hair.... Do some research before you start using it. I only wash my hair with water, did the baking soda / apple cider thing for a week or two and then stopped. A great hair cleanser is 2 egg yolks, half a lemon. On cool, towel dried hair for 10 mins and then rinse with cool water (so the eggs dont cook on your head :) ). Hair gets a clean and a protein boost as well. If its dry, just use the yolks, you can add a tablespoon of coconut oil as well for a really deep condition, I dont as you have to then use shampoos to get it out.

Thank you so much for posting this! What a wonderful read. I was diagnosed + medicated for severe anxiety disorder about two years ago. Anti-depressants made me become a zombie so I stopped taking them - and now I'm going to try this recipe. :) Elise

Amy, start off by joining the Facebook group Safe Essential Oil Recipes! They are a great resource. Also, they have a safe dilution chart and you'll find that the tiniest bit of oils go a long way! Start off with the basics, lavender, lemon, and peppermint! Then you can slowly expand your collection once you find out what you like and what you need.
Amy -Apr 26, 2015, 12:39PM
Essential oils can be intimidating at first and even a little pricey. How would you recommend getting started/easing into the world of essential oils in the beauty routine? What oils will provide a good base for future projects and are fundamental for any collection? I'd love to see this broken down and your advice for how to get started.
