Homemade Hand Scrub

Homemade Hand Scrub
Winter is here and if the cold, dry air has turned your hands into sandpaper like it has mine, you`ll appreciate this hand scrub that leaves your hands soft, smooth and smelling delicious! Turn your old jars into thoughtful, homemade gifts (& keep one for yourself!) I suggest using small jars, since all the ingredients are edible (and therefore spoilable) and should be used within a month. Ingredients: Small sized mason or other jars you want to use Sugar Olive oil (or any other oil you may have in your pantry) Lemon juice & zest Few drops of vanilla *The amount of ingredients that you need depends on the amount of scrub that you want to make. I used about 4 cups of sugar for 4 small jars.

Build It: Upholstered Storage Bench - Sawdust & Paper Scraps I”m happy to share some free plans and a tutorial for the upholstered storage benches that I made for Madison”s bedroom. They are SUPER easy to make. Now you can make your own storage bench or benches! I built them 18″ tall (the height of a standard chair) so she can slide one over and use it as a chair when she wants to do homework at her desk/hutch. That way, we don”t have to have a designated chair in the small bedroom taking up valuable floor space and the benches double as storage for all the things that never get used but we can”t seem to part with.

making chapstick « tidytipsy.photography When the weather gets cooler my mind turns not only to knitting but also to making body products. I made chapstick already last year, but wasn’t overly happy with the recipe, so I tried a different one this year. I used: 20% beeswax 25% coconut oil 15% cocoa butter 40% olive oil Make Bath Salts, Bath Bombs and Bubble Bath Recipes To use, add from 2 tablespoons to one-half cup of the bath salts to a full tub. Mix with your hands into the water. Relax, enjoy!! NOTE: For bath salts place in a deep wide rimmed container, dont use a small bottle neck as the salts may harden, making it almost impossible to get out.

Cup Lights Posted by: Cathy on Jun 03, 2012 Tagged in: Untagged Summer Lights Garland Homemade Body Wash - Keep Scary Out Of Your Shower - To Be A Farmer - Little Seed Farm Our Homemade Lavender-Lemongrass Body WashWhat do you put on your body every day? By the time I’ve finished my morning routine I’ve used shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash, toner, moisturizer and sunscreen for my face, and lotion for my body. Somehow, it took me close to a year before I started wondering what the heck was actually in those bottles in my shower. Isn't it odd that we’ve become so conscious of what we put inside our bodies, and somehow managed not to give any thought about what we were putting on them?

DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths.

Notebook keyrings I am sorry, I can't show you the other ones anymore. I sold them at my first market (and had no time to take pictures before. Finally sleep won the battle! ^^) The sides are covered card boards. This one I made with a fabric I love... still have to try to make the edges a little bit better.

I tweaked this recipe a bit. I skipped the vanilla and zest and I added more sugar so the solid to liquid ratio would be skewed. I just didn't like it all that liquidy. Other than that, it leaves my hands quite soft. by mightyhedgehog Oct 14
