DIY: Ningxia Gummies


DIY: NingXia Red Gummies

  • 1/2 cup 100% apple juice (grape or orange would work as well) 
  • 2&1/2 envelopes gelatin (1&½ oz) 
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup NingXia Red
  • 6 drops Orange Vitality oil (Lemon or Lime would be good too)
  • Silicone molds 
  • Optional: a few droppersful of Citrus CBD

Add juice to a small saucepan. Add gelatin, and whisk. Heat on low to medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until no longer grainy and is a thin viscosity (it will start opaque and turn clear).

Remove from heat, and whisk in honey. Whisk until mixture cools a bit; then add NingXia Red and Orange oil. (Waiting until it cools helps protect the essential oil's beneficial properties.)

Use a clean medicine dosing syringe or other small dropper to fill molds. If you have extra mixture, you can put it in a glass pan. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

DIY Bathsoap for kids

DIY Bathsoap for kids

Here's an easy, rainy day craft to do this summer or anytime your kids need a fun activity! Make your own soap and get a prize at bath time!

 Recipe by Katie Weber

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Molds to make the soap in (plastic cups work too!)
  • Cooking spray or coconut oil
  • Pure solid glycerin soap (found in cubes at craft stores)
  • Essential oils (It's fun to let kids choose their favorites!)
  • Natural food coloring or soap dye (craft store)
  • Small plastic toys

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Coat the inside of your molds/cups with oil or cooking spray.
  • This step is for adults b/c it involves hot liquid. Melt soap by placing cubes of soap in a measuring cup and microwave for 30 secs - continue in 15 second intervals until the soap is melted.
  • Add in a few drops of food coloring/soap dye to reach your desired color. Mix thoroughly.
  • Add 6-8 drops of your essential oil. For bath time we love Lavender, SleepyIze, Stress Away and Peace & Calming.
  • Carefully fill mold about 1/3 of the way full with the hot soap. Let cool for 20 minutes, and then place the small plastic toy on top of the mostly hardened soap.
  • Repeat steps 2–4 to melt and color the remaining soap. Pour another layer of soap into the mold to cover the plastic toy.
  • Let cool for 2+ hours. Once completely cooled, turn the mold upside down and pop the soap out.

Enjoy!!!
