How to use solid coconut oil and essential oils together to create beauty products

This is the really fun part for me about essential oils is creating things. I love to play with essential oils with my daughter. Together we create fun bath bombs, lotion bars but we also create practical things we can use that are natural and safer for us than purchasing things in the store like homemade deodorant or bug spray and we also save money by not purchasing commercial products and by creating our own.
