How To Make Your Own Lotion Bars

How To Make Your Own Lotion Bars
With all the “experimenting” I do on a daily basis trying out new homemade solutions….my hands are in and out of hot, soapy water a LOT! It seems like I’ve never used more moisturizers on my person than I have this past winter. I am CONSTANTLY slathering some greasy goo on my hands, feet, etc in an effort to alleviate the extreme dryness! The problem is….I never seem to have the lotion with me when I need it! I love my homemade moisturizing lotion…but it’s hard to keep even a small mason jar of it in a purse! So when I heard about Lotion BARS I was intrigued. What is a lotion bar you ask? Hard lotion bars are also very CONVENIENT! But I think what I like even MORE than the convenience…is the simple, natural ingredients that blend to “lock” in moisture. If you’re feeling do-it-yourselfish…Renee is sharing her simple 3-ingredient Lotion Bar recipe with us! Well, as you can see…while they’re not picture-perfect like hers…I was pretty happy with how they turned out! Ingredients:

Rethinking Oral Health Care: A Homemade Toothpaste Recipe for Tooth Remineralization Several years ago, I started to question some of the ingredients in commercial toothpastes as well as the approach of modern dentistry in general. I view some modern dentistry practices as appropriate and beneficial. Consider, though, that the foundation of today’s dental philosophy is similar to the mainstream medical model in that it focuses on treatment and not prevention. I believe the focus of dentistry (like medicine) should be prevention of decay and disease through sound nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. This begins in utero (even pre-conception), when the teeth and jaw structure are formed, is well established through breastfeeding, and must be adhered to for one’s lifetime.

3 simple homemade toothpaste recipes While some people in rural parts of the world may resort to the use of brick, charcoal, rangoli powder, mud, salt or ash for toothpaste, western brushers usually rely on a tube of mystery ingredients to make their pearly whites sparkle like the Pepsodent girl's. But the ingredients found in conventional toothpastes — including sodium fluoride, synthetic dyes derived from petroleum or coal tar, sodium hydroxide (also known as lye or caustic soda), sodium lauryl sulfate, titanium dioxide, artificial sweeteners, and triclosan — might make us think twice about the products we employ for the sake of our teeth. Of course, we’re not actively swallowing the stuff, but it’s unavoidable that a bit will slink down the gullet from time to time.

Standard Model The Standard Model of particle physics is a theory concerning the electromagnetic, weak, and strong nuclear interactions, as well as classifying all the subatomic particles known. It was developed throughout the latter half of the 20th century, as a collaborative effort of scientists around the world.[1] The current formulation was finalized in the mid-1970s upon experimental confirmation of the existence of quarks. Since then, discoveries of the top quark (1995), the tau neutrino (2000), and more recently the Higgs boson (2013), have given further credence to the Standard Model. Because of its success in explaining a wide variety of experimental results, the Standard Model is sometimes regarded as a "theory of almost everything".
