I often get asked what my ABSOLUTE favorite recipe is, or the one I can’t live without.
If I had to pick just one thing it would be this — homemade vanilla oil.
It’s luxurious, tells frizz to have several seats, is excellent for skin, and gets even better over time.
When my kids were babies, I used this oil in place of baby oil. I still use it for deep pressure massage with my son.
Did you know vanilla oil has some crazy medicinal properties?
- it relieves nausea

- a natural sedative that induces sleep
- has antidepressant properties that lifts mood, dissolves anger, and promotes good feelings
- encourages dreaming
