DIY Sunscreen and it's chemical free.

Sunscreen Bars


1 cup unrefined coconut oil

1 cup shea butter

1 cup beeswax pellets

3 teaspoons of Vitamin E oil

2 tablespoons Zinc Oxide

20 drops YL carrot seed essential oil

10-20 drops of YL lemongrass or lavender essential oil


Combine top 4 ingredients in a double boiler. Bring water to boil. Stir constantly until melted.

Carefully and quickly stir in ZO and EO's. 

Pour into sillicon molds or muffin cups.

Allow to cool completely before popping out of mold.

Store at room temperature below 80 degrees or in fridge. 

Apply before sun exposure and apply often as you would with any sunscreen.


For easy clean up put all bowls, pans, spoons in fridge and let mixture harden to allow you to pop off. I wish I knew this when I made my first batch.

Baked Oatmeal....Yum!

The yummiest oatmeal muffins. Easy to make and great for breakfast or snack on the go.

Baked Oatmeal



2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

2 cups applesauce, unsweetened  

1 banana, mashed  

6 packets of Sweetleaf Stevia or 1½ teaspoons stevia powder or use ½ cup honey ( I use honey)

5 cups, Old Fashioned rolled oats  

¼ cup flaxseed powder  

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 

3 teaspoon baking powder  

1 teaspoon sea salt 

2¾ cups milk (your preference) I use almond milk

Optional toppings: raisins, walnuts, dark chocolate chips or carob chips

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana and Stevia together in a bowl. Add in oats, flax, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and mix well with wet ingredients.  

Finally pour in milk and combine. Spray a 12 and 6 capacity muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners. Pour mixture evenly into muffin tin cups.  

If using toppings add them onto the tops of muffins now. If using fresh or frozen fruit, drop it right into the batter.

Bake 30 minutes until a toothpick in center comes out clean. Cool and enjoy or freeze them in freezer bags. I usually put four muffins in a quart size freezer bag.
