What's in My Oily Bag: Summer 2018 Edition

Hello from Camp!

I don't need much when I go to the lake. I bring a bathing suit, clothes, and everything listed below. The only thing I forgot was bug spray, and I did just fine without it!

Here's what I brought with me to camp.


Thieves Dentarome Toothpaste- for obvious reasons.

Mineral Sunscreen Lotion- safe for your skin and safe for the turtles (or any other water life) It’s thicker than other sunscreens and doesn’t have a scent. I feel like it spreads nicely and sinks into my skin without me feeling like a grease ball.

Meadow Mist Deodorant- Deodorant was one of the hardest products for me to “ditch and switch” This doesn’t smell like roses or whatever else my old Deodorant smelled like but it works and is MUCH better for my skin. Someday I want to try the Mountain Mint Deodorant but until then I have this.

Acne Treatment- Amazing. Contains salicylic acid. I use this product everyday. You probably wouldn’t notice but I can tell my skins clearing up!


Progessence Plus Serum- I apply one drop on my wrist and rub it together with my other wrist. I do this twice a day. Balanced hormones are a must.

Peppermint Essential Oil- I bring this everywhere... literally everywhere. I apply it to the bottom of my nose whenever I feel any head tension. Peppermint works wonders!!! We don’t even own any bottles of pills anymore!

Thieves Essential Oil- I pop a drop or two of this into my Ningxia Red everyday. It adds a nice cinnamon kick and is great for keeping us healthy.

EndoFlex Essential Oil- Gotta keep that endocrine system satisfied. I roll this over my neck twice a day.

Sprays and Roller Balls:

Tummy Tamer Roll On- you just never know when an upset tummy is coming... or isn’t coming... I store this in an old Digize container. Digize and Peppermint with carrier oil FTW!

After Sun Spray- recipe here. Cooling and soothing. Perfect relief after a day out in the sun.

Long and Strong Nail Serum- MY NAILS ARE GETTING SO LONG AND SO STRONG. YAHOOOOOOOOOOO! I use this every day.

Stay Healthy Spray- I use this every night. I spray it onto my spine and rub it in. I swear it keeps me healthy. 

Valor Roll On- Valor is basically my security blanket. I use it for courage and so many other things!  

Muscle Melter Roll On- You never know when something’s going to snap, or crack, or pop. Okay... that was dramatic...But this stuff soothes muscles like nobody’s business.

Bella’s Oils: (Post on Bella's fear of car/travel coming soon!)

Lavender Essential Oil- Life changing Lavender!!! Thirty minutes before departure, I put a small drop of coconut oil in my palm followed by two drops of Lavender. I rub it down her spine, behind her ears, and on her collar. I rub the remaining into my hands to keep me cool, calm, and collected as well. She sits/lays in the car and doesn’t make a peep... she doesn't even shake. 

Gentle Baby Essential Oil- Gentle baby is a blend of coriander, geranium, palmarosa, lavender, ylang ylang, roman chamomile, bergamont, lemon, jasmine, and rose. We put Gentle Baby on Bella's special blanket. She’s had this blanket since she was a tiny puppy. I’d like to think of it as her security blanket... like Linus's blanket from Charlie Brown... but I’m sure Bella just thinks it’s comfy to lay on. Gentle Baby helps keep Bella Baby calm! I put two or three (YL oils are super concentrated, you only need a little bit!)

What are your must haves for an overnight trip?
