  • Hi! I’m Amber.

    I love Jesus. I'm a wife to Steve, Mama to Reid, Eli and Henry. We are adopting and are currently waiting to match with an expectant Mama. Before kiddos, I was a photographer, now I am a Young Living independent distributor. You will find a variety of posts on my blog about DIY recipes, Young Living, my business Orange Joy, our oily life and snippets of life as a family of 5 almost 6 :)

DIY Coconut Milk Body Wash

In an effort to reduce the amount of chemicals in our home, over the past few years we have been making our own products. When we started building our Young Living business and bringing their amazing products into our home, it just made even more sense to utilize the awesome properties in these oils and to incorporate them into beauty products.

I wash my face with the Leven rose Jojoba oil and add 5 drops of frankincense and 5 drops of lavender, when I use it, my skin is very happy and moisturized.

You can use Coconut milk to make your own body wash/shaving cream, shampoo and conditioner. Today I’m going to share about the body wash/shaving cream.


1/2 cup Canned Coconut Milk

2/3 cup unscented Dr.Bronner’s Castile soap

2 tsp vitamin E oil

10 drops of essential oil ( I used Lavender and Orange)

2 tsp vegetable glycerin

Mix all ingredients together, shake and enjoy!

-Did you know that you need 3,000 lemons to make 1 kilo of oil?

Diffuse Jade Lemon for a happy smelling home and to help wake you up out of the afternoon slump.

Nora Bird

Reid just told me that his nickname for Nora will be “Nora Bird” because of this sweet little bird that a good friend gifted to us. I think it’s sweet and it makes me long for the day when he finally gets to look at her face and say hello to his Nora Bird. #adoptionislove #adoption




So…yet again Instagram has been my way of sharing info with friends and family about life. However I would love to get back into the habit of sharing on here. So hopefully moving forward you can see some more posts about life, adoption and essential oils. 🙂

Bumps in this adoption road are hard and we’ve been pretty quiet lately as there hasn’t been much going on…until yesterday. This crib could have been home to a sweet baby girl who was born yesterday, but God had other plans and she will be with a different family. Now we walk forward with the knowledge we have gained and continue to wait for the baby He has planned for us. #adoptionrocks #adoptionislove #adoptionishard #adoptionisworthit
