Spice Up Your Crafts with Vinyl Labels!

As we free our lives of harsh chemicals and make our own natural products, it can be hard to tell all the different containers apart. Vinyl labels make the perfect addition to a homemade craft—and they make our chemical-free lives a little more organized. Plus, let’s not forget about how cute the labels are! Use them to add a classy final touch to whatever you’re making.

We carry a wide variety of specially designed vinyl labels for you to label all the products you make. Click here to see all the labels we offer and get started on making some of your favorite products. We’ve also included a new sugar scrub recipe below to get you started!


Sugar scrubs are great for exfoliating sensitive skin. This scrub works great on your lips, face, and hands. Apply a small portion, and your skin will be feeling softer in no time! Plus, the peppermint, lime, and coconut oil smell will leave your skin smelling great. This scrub also makes a great gift for that special someone if you prefer to give it away instead of pampering yourself.

Essential Oil Sock Bunnies

These sock bunnies make a fantastic Easter craft that your kids will enjoy. The bunnies are super cute, and you can design them however you want. Just add your favorite essential oils to this craft to maximize the benefits. Try adding lavender to help calm your kids down while they play!

Sock Bunnies

  • Servings: Yield=1 bunny
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients & Supplies:

  • 2–3 cups (375–550 g) rice
  • 1 sock
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • String or twine
  • Ribbon
  • 20–30 drops essential oil

Instructions:

  1. Pour the rice into a bowl, and stir in the essential oils until the desired smell is reached (approx. 20–30 drops).
  2. Using a funnel or a roll of tape to hold the sock open, pour the rice into the sock until it fills to the beginning of the heel of the sock.
  3. Shape the sock by pinching between where the head and the body will be, making sure that the body is larger than the head.
  4. Tie off the head tightly with the string, then tie off the section between the body and head.
  5. Cut off the top of the sock, leaving about 2″ (5 cm) for the ears above the head.
  6. Cut the ear portion of the sock in half vertically, then diagonally from the top of the head to the corner, creating an ear shape. Repeat on the other ear.
  7. Trim the strings down, tie a bow around the neck, and draw a cute face!

Extra Ideas:

You can also tie a little knot around a portion of the body to make a tail, or sew on a cotton ball.

Remove the ribbon, and place the bunny in the microwave for 30 seconds (or until warm), and let your kids enjoy the warmth while they play or take a nap.

Essential Oil Living

A great way to learn about essential oils, gain experiences you can share with others, and improve your health is to incorporate the oils into your everyday life. This can be done by using essential oils topically, internally, and aromatically. We mentioned in a previous post, New Year’s Resolutions for a Healthy New Year, how to use the oils in cooking recipes, but there are plenty of other ways to use the oils every day. Check out the blog posts below for some great ideas!

We hope that you can find the information you need to help you achieve a healthy lifestyle and your essential oil–related goals this coming year.

We wish you a happy, healthy new year!

Halloween Party Activity

GhostlySearchFind500

This fun search-and-find game is sure to be the hit of any Halloween party! To make this fun game, cut out masking tape to create shapes for the ghost’s mouth and eyes, and arrange the face on the outside of a 16 oz. Clear PET Plastic Jar. Use white paint or a specialty frosted-glass spray paint to paint the outside of the clear jar. After the paint is dry, remove the masking tape to reveal the face. Place 10–20 small fall-themed trinkets, shapes, charms, or toys in the jar, and then fill the jar the rest of the way up with small black or gray beads. Place a small amount of plastic glue around the rim of the jar, and screw the lid on. Once the glue has had a chance to dry, shake the contents together. To play the game, simply take turns seeing who can be the fastest to find a specific object inside the ghost!
