  1. This summer I have suffered so much with insect bites! Baking soda mixed with a bit of water then applied to the skin make SUCH a good treatment for itchy skin. It has been a lifesaver 🙂

  2. Thanks for the printable! Its great to have it all in one place!

    Becky- I love your printables they are always so cute and colorful. The problem I have is my printer wont print color so I just get nothing. Could you make an option for black and white? My printer CAN print color I just can’t afford the color cartridge so I only have black. So if I try to print something with color it doesn’t come out.

  4. Becky,
    What is the purpose of the essential oil, just the aroma, or is it necessary in the mixture.


    • Essential oils can have cleaning and disinfecting properties and they add a nice fragrance. In all of these recipes they are primarily added for scent.
      xo, Becky

  5. This is so great and a cheap alternative! I can already see myself putting these in homemade containers with labels and laminate guides hanging from them. However. I’m a little confused about essential oils. Do you mean just essential oils to make it the solutions smell good?

  6. What a great freebie you gave here I’m printing it now!
