    Nutty Butt Butter: Your Little Cellulite Secret
    Crunchy Betty has a recipe for lotion bars to help reduce cellulite. I don’t know if they will work but I sure do like the idea. The scent alone is probably well worth the effort of making them and I do kind of have to say that Cruncy Betty stuff is always fantastic so I am sure this is one that will be welcomed by loads of people.

    Happy Homesteading: Burts Bees Lip Balm Recipe {Copy Cat}


    INGREDIENTS:
    ◾20 grams Beeswax (about 3 Tablespoons of the whiter beads, but you can use a white/yellow bar too)
    ◾20 grams Cocoa Butter or Coconut Oil (about 2 Tablespoons)
    ◾45 grams Sunflower Oil (1/4 cup)
    ◾8 drops Vitaman E oil (4 vitamin E oil tablets worth)
    ◾2 drops DoTerra Rosemary essential oil
    ◾12 drops DoTerra Peppermint essential oil
    ◾Pea-sized drop of Lanolin (donít use much of this or your balm will taste bad)

    DIRECTIONS

    I added the ingredients in grams so that if you have a little scale you can get accurate & exact measurements (which is best) but if you donít have a scale I measured them too.

    I never realized how extremely easy it is to make chapstick! Basically all you need to do is melt it all and pour into your containers! Easy peasy.

    When I first started making chapstick recipes I just used a glass measuring cup and melted my recipes in the microwave which worked perfectly fine. But then my microwave broke so now I am using a double boiler method, but you could just melt it in a pot too. I used a metal measuring cup to add all my ingredients into.

    Bug Repellent Lotion Bars



    If you would like to make your own bug repellent but not have to spray yourself or the kids with oils which can get on nice clothes why not try these lotion bars from Homemademommy. I love the shapes she used and that you can carry them in your purse in a tin or box and not have to worry about them spilling all over everything like you do the spray.

    http://www.homemademommy.net/2013/05...tion-bars.html

    I really like essential oil blends for this bug repellent bar because it makes my life easier. I don’t need to buy all of these oils separately. I know I would never use a full bottle of them. I add my favorite oil blend, Thieves oil, which includes clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils. A new oil blend I am loving right now is one called Purification. It is a blend of citronella, lemongrass, lavandin, rosemary, melaleuca, and myrtle essential oils. All of these scents keep those mosquitoes away!

    There is an additional benefit to having Purification oil on hand: you can dab a drop onto any bite or sting and it will take the itch out. I got two bites on my shoulder the other night and I put Purification on them and they haven’t been itchy since!



    Ingredients
    •1/4 cup coconut oil (where to buy)
    •1/4 cup grated cocoa butter or shea butter (where to buy)
    •1/4 cup grated beeswax, firmly packed (where to buy)
    •1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E oil (optional) (where to buy)
    •1/4 tsp Purification oil blend (where to buy)
    •1/4 tsp Thieves oil blend (where to buy)

    Directions

    Using a glass bowl set over a simmering pot of water, gently melt beeswax, coconut oil, and cocoa or shea butter.
    Stir ingredients until melted.

    Remove from heat. Add essential oils and optional Vitamin E. Stir until blended, then pour into a mold. I like silicon molds.

    Allow to cool before removing from molds. You can place them in the fridge to speed things up a bit.

    These bars will stay good for up to 6 months. Store in an airtight container. I use these tins to carry them around with me in my purse!

    This is crazy. Mix 1/4 cup Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off.

    The Nerdy Farm Wife website shares how to make herbal soap without lye … well sort of.

    Soap making is just one of the many different skills that a person can learn in this adventurous journey of becoming self sufficient.

    Allergic reactions- The soaps that are made today are made out of detergents with perfumes which can cause itching and rashes. Store bought harsh detergent based soaps can actually harm and cause dry skin ailments. Many people will say that soap is hard to make because of the confusion when it comes to the correct amounts of lye to use. Once a person get the amount of lye right, they will enjoy the process of soap making … the intimation factor will be gone.

    After trying the homemade soap and see how different it is compared to store bought soap, they may never buy another store bought soap again.

    When my friends made me the Coconut Honey Scrub for Christmas I was hooked and wanted to try more Homemade Scrubs. I searched for homemade scrub recipes and there’s bazillions online so I came up with 6 that i loved and started using them. Here I am to share them all. I think they make great homemade gifts like teacher appreciation gifts and mother’s day crafts for kids.

    Why Use a Sugar Scrub?

    About once a month skin cells are shed for new ones and while the body can do this use a sugar scrub or salt scrub can help remove the old cells which is why scrubs are so popular at beauty spas to remove dead skin cells, refresh and rejuvenate skin.

    Alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs, are the ingredient in exfoliating scrubs. Sugar is used because the glycolic acid found in sugar cane is a naturally occurring AHA.

    My 6 Homemade Scrubs

    2.Zesty Lemon Scrub http://mummydeals.org/zesty-lemon-scrub-recipe/

    3.Candy Cane Scrub http://mummydeals.org/homemade-peppermint-sugar-scrub/

    How To Make Natural Moisturizing Body Wash
    http://www.diynatural.com/homemade-body-wash/

    I always crack up at those chewing gum commercials that ask, “Feeling dirty?” And their answer to cleaning up is to pop a piece of gum in your mouth. Sparkling teeth, yes. Sparkling clean body…not so much.

    So how about getting an all-over clean feeling with a little homemade body wash? I swear it’s simple – not nearly as simple as popping in a piece of gum – but the results will surely make you more presentable.

    If you have simplified your personal products, you’re probably wondering why a bar of soap won’t cut it. It will. But some of us just like a little something we can squirt on a washrag or a bath pouf to scrub-a-dub-dub with. Oh yeah, and it takes only a few minutes to make this liquid body wash – that’s far less time than it takes me to make bar soap.

    With this combination of ingredients, this moisturizing body wash is gentle enough to use on your face, and also makes a rich lathering shave soap. (In fact, I recently took this on a camping trip and used it as facial cleanser, body wash, and shaving foam. It really cut down on the amount of toiletries I had to pack!)

    Ingredients you’ll need

    Honey – Honey is the secret ingredient in this recipe. We recently published an article about honey’s amazing benefits for the body, inside and out. Honey helps your skin retain moisture and elasticity without drying it out. This makes honey perfect for mature, dry, itchy, or damaged skin. It can also help speed the healing of blemished skin. Instead of making the body wash sticky, honey just makes it nice and smooth. Be sure to use raw, unfiltered honey.

    Liquid castile soap – Using a pure liquid castile soap will ensure your body wash has enough suds, without the addition of any chemical foaming agents. Feel free to use scented or unscented castile soap. If using scented castile soap you can omit the essential oils, or go ahead and add them for their therapeutic benefits. (Note: Peppermint castile soap may be a little uncomfortably tingly on sensitive areas for some.)

    Oil – Adding an oil that is easily absorbed by the skin makes this body wash extra moisturizing. Jojoba and grapeseed oil are two of my favorites. You may even find you don’t need to apply additional moisturizer after using the body wash.

    Vitamin E oil – Vitamin E is repairing and moisturizing. This ingredient is an antioxidant and can help elongate the shelf life of homemade personal care products. Perfect as an addition to products during the summer or winter months when our skin may be more stressed from extreme temperatures and weather.

    Essential oils – Many essential oils are perfect for troublesome skin conditions. Some of them soothe, repair, heal, disinfect, or deodorize skin. See suggestions at the end of the article for beneficial essential oils to use in your body wash.

    Moisturizing Honey Body Wash

    Ingredients
    •⅔ cup liquid castile soap (find it here)
    •ľ cup raw, unfiltered honey (find it here)
    •2 teaspoons oil – grapeseed, jojoba, sweet almond, sesame, or olive (find it here)
    •1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil (find it here)
    •50 – 60 drops essential oils (find 100% pure essential oils here) – see suggestions below

    Directions : Measure out all ingredients and combine in a bottle with a squirt top, shaking to mix. Shake gently before each use. To use, squirt onto a washcloth, bath pouf, or directly onto body.
    Since this recipe doesn’t contain water, it has a long shelf life of up to a year.

    Essential oils for skin

    When making your body wash, keep your particular skin type in mind and find a scent you enjoy. If you’re using this body wash for your baby, you may want to omit the essential oils altogether, or just add a few drops of chamomile or lavender essential oil. If children will be using the body wash, use half the suggested amount of essential oils.

    My current favorite scent combination is 45 drops of lavender and 15 drops of geranium essential oil. This creates a sweet floral body wash that reminds me of summer flower beds. Use a single essential oil or have fun blending a few. Here are some suggestions:

    Chamomile (German and Roman) - Great for dry and sensitive skin, acne, eczema, and dermatitis.

    Geranium - Great for oily complexions, acne, mature skin, eczema, dermatitis, and other problematic skin conditions. It also brightens and revitalizes dull skin.

    Grapefruit – This essential oil tones the skin and is extremely cleansing for oily skin. If using the amount suggested in the above recipe, there is no phototoxic concern.

    Lavender – Very gentle and good for all skin types, including very sensitive skin. Perfect for mature skin, acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Effective in soothing itchy skin.

    Palmarosa - Stimulates new cell growth, moisturizes skin, and regulates oil production. This makes it a valuable essential oil for use in any DIY skin products.

    Patchouli - Antimicrobial, astringent, fungicidal, and deodorant. Great for acne, cracked and chapped skin, eczema, oily skin, and mature skin.

    Peppermint – Since peppermint is very strong, use only half the amount recommended in the recipe (or less). Cooling, refreshing, and stimulating. Has astringent properties, making it perfect for acneic skin. (Note: Avoid during first 4 months of pregnancy.)

    Rosemary - Rosemary is stimulating and restorative. Useful for acne, eczema, and dermatitis. (Note: Avoid during pregnancy. Do not use if you are epileptic or have high blood pressure.)

    Sandalwood – Useful for acne, dry, cracked, and chapped skin. Also great for wrinkles and mature skin.

    Sweet orange - One of the only citrus essential oils that is not phototoxic, sweet orange is helpful for dull or oily skin.

    Tea tree - This antibacterial oil can be nicely blended with others like lavender and peppermint. May be useful for acne, oily skin, rashes, and inflamed skin. Using too much may actually create a drying effect. You may need to experiment a little to find the right amount for your skin.

    Ylang ylang – Great for general skin care, irritated skin, oily skin, or acne. Since this oil is a strong scent, add a few drops at a time until the desired aroma is achieved. (You will need much less than the amount suggested in the above recipe.)

    Make it your own : Don’t limit yourself to the essential oils or ingredients recommended in this recipe. Experiment with your favorite ingredients, and be sure to let us know how it turns out!

    12 All-Natural, Antifungal Essential Oils

    Whatever fungal concern you're trying to stay protected from, using natural, antifungal essential oils is always a safer first option. While essential oils aren't meant to "cure" anything, they can often help your body stay healthy before moving onto bigger attempts.

    Did you know that research has shown the side effects of over-the-counter antifungal creams could include:

    •irritation
    •inflammation
    •rash
    •blisters
    •numbness and tingling
    •liver damage



    However, the effectiveness and safety of essential oils as antifungal treatments depends solely on the quality of oil.

    I've used many antifungal essential oils that have given me similar side effects to the common OTCs (!!), or had no impact at all. Melaleuca is a good example of this. A poor quality tea tree oil is not only ineffective, it can cause severe reactions which worsen the original condition.

    It's easy to find poor quality essential oils in grocery stores, drugstores, even natural health stores. It's important that you're looking for essential oils that undergo rigorous testing for purity and are sourced only from their indigenous regions. If your essential oils aren't sourced from their natural home, you simply won't have as healthy a plant or as potent an oil, and if the quality is not there, you may have some unfortunate additives, fillers, or contaminants instead.

    IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER

    None of these health benefits, nor the ideas below, have been evaluated or approved by the FDA. They should not be used in place of personal judgment or medical treatment when needed, nor is it intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. (Only your doctor can diagnose and treat disease. Only your lifestyle can prevent. Only your body can cure.)

    http://www.sustainablebabysteps.com/disclaimer.html
    The 12 Best Antifungal Essential Oils

    Each of the following essential oils have been found to have antifungal properties to varying degrees. The oils marked with * are the most commonly known, widely used, and generally found to be strongest. But be sure to visit your doctor and use your own best judgment when using any alternative remedies. There's a time and place for essential oils, and a time and place for a doctor's appointment.

    Cassia Essential Oil

    Cassia's other properties, besides antifungal, are antibacterial and antiviral. It must be diluted (1 drop of cassia to a minimum of 4+ drops of carrier oil) and shouldn't be taken internally, but can be massaged into reflex points or over areas of concern.


    Cinnamon Essential Oil

    Cinnamon has many properties, including antibacterial, anti-infectious (especially urinary and intestinal), antiseptic and many more which aid and assist this and other natural antifungal essential oils. It is strong, so be sure to dilute it (1 drop of cinnamon to a minimum 3+ drops of carrier), but you can cook, bake or even make candy with it for flus and colds.


    Clary Sage Essential Oil

    Clary sage is not only antifungal, it's also a nerve tonic, astringent, soothing and calming, and more. It generally doesn't need dilution and potentially may be taken internally thru the use of capsules with proper precautions.


    Clove Essential Oil*

    This potent oil is a strong antiseptic, as well as antifungal oil. Great for cleaning and diffusing, and is also antibacterial, disinfectant, and even antitumor. It can be used topically, diluted equally with a carrier oil, or taken internally with the right precautions.


    Coriander Essential Oil

    Coriander is also anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, and a stimulant. It blends well with other "spice" oils, can usually be applied without dilution, and can be used internally, such as in cooking.


    Lavender Essential Oil*

    Lavender oil is not only an antifungal, it is also anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and more. It's a great oil for soothing skin. It's also calming and great to use at night (best night of sleep ever!). It can be used topically, with or without dilution.


    Lemon Essential Oil

    Lemon oil is also an antioxidant, antiseptic, even anticancer! It's great for cleaning, can be taken internally (dropped in water), or used topically, although sensitive skin may want to dilute, and you should avoid direct sunlight for 12 hours after topical use.


    Melaleuca (Tea Tree) Essential Oil*

    Melaleuca is widely known for its anti-everything properties: antifungal, antibacterial, anit-infectious, antiparasitic, antiviral, and more, including tissue regenerative and neurotonic. Sensitive skin might find they need to dilute (but not always), and its a great household cleaner.


    Oregano Essential Oil*

    Oregano is a highly potent antifungal essential oil. It's also very strong, meaning you should never apply it without diluting first. But you can cook with it!


    Patchouli Essential Oil

    Patchouli oil is also anti-inflammatory, decongestant, antiseptic, among many other properties. It can usually be used without dilution and applied directly over any area of concern.


    Rosemary Essential Oil

    Rosemary is a natural antifungal, but also is known for its anticancer, anti-infectious, antioxidant, and other properties. It usually requires no dilution and can be applied topically to the area of concern, as well as used in cooking or taken internally.


    Thyme Essential Oil

    Thyme is said to be highly antibacterial, as well as antiviral, antimicrobial, and antiseptic. It makes a great defense against many issues, although it should always be diluted (1 drop thyme to a minimum 4+ drops carrier oil). It can be cooked with, as can most other "spice" oils.


    Natural Antifungal Products and Uses

    Natural Antifungal Cream
    First choose a carrier. Beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter or something of the like works best. If nothing else is handy you can use a lotion, but be aware that it can counteract with the oils, make the condition worse, or simply not blend with your essential oils. For every tablespoon of carrier, add 1-2 drops of your preferred oils. Make small batches, as they go far, and store in small glass jars (such as a small mason jar).

    Natural Antifungal Foot Soak
    Fill a large bowl, cake pan, or other small tub with warm water (or as hot as you can tolerate, if you prefer). Optionally, add 1/4 cup of epsom salt or baking soda. Add a total of 5-10 drops of your preferred antifungal essential oils.

    Natural Antifungal Shampoo
    In addition to the recommendations we have here for dandruff home remedies, my first recommendation would be to forego shampoo altogether and allow your scalp to adjust to using water or baking soda (it will overproduce oils at first, since it is accustomed to the shampoo stripping your scalp of oils, but this usually corrects itself in a few weeks). If you feel you need soap, try Dr. Bronners or some other gentle castille soap. You can make your own shampoo by adding 10-12 oz of water, 1 teaspoon of liquid Dr. Bronners, and up to 10-15 drops of natural antifungal essential oils to a bottle, shake well before each use and wash with the mixture. You can also add the oils of your choice to your current shampoo bottle (2-4 drops per ounce of bottle) and shake/mix VERY well. I recommend making small batches at a time and storing them in glass or stainless steel jars or containers.

    Natural Antifungal Spray
    The type of spray you wish to create depends on its use. You can add distilled water or aloe vera juice with 1-3 drops per ounce for personal use. If you wish to make a natural cleaning product, try using white distilled vinegar or hydrogen peroxide diluted with water (up to 50%) and adding 2-4 drops per ounce. Store in a glass of stainless jar, preferably.

    Natural Antifungal Powder
    Baking soda is going to be the best here. It helps to eliminate odors, which often come with along fungus. Add 1-3 drops of any essential oils or blends of oils to every ounce of baking soda, shake very well to evenly distribute the oils throughout the baking soda and sprinkle in shoes, on carpets, in closets, over tubs and sinks, etc. (I suggest making smaller amounts at a time to keep the oils at their most potent. Store any extra in a glass jar.)

    This DIY Lipgloss only take 3 ingredients to make! Perfect summer activity for you kids!

    http://adventuresinallthingsfood.blo...lip-gloss.html



    2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
    1/2 package of Kool-Aid
    enough water to form a paste
    1 tsp. sugar or to taste
    I used two custard cups to make up a batch of gloss. First I started by softening my coconut oil. I heat the oil in the microwave for 5 seconds and then stir vigorously. You don't want to overheat it, it should not be in liquid form, but you could put it back in for another few seconds if it is too firm.

    In another cup, pour in about half of the Kool-Aid. Add just enough water to form a paste and see the color. Whisk in your sugar and add it into your softened coconut oil a little at a time till you achieve the desired color.

    I used a small whisk and some elbow grease to mix it all together. The oil and paste don't mix well unless you work at it... just a little bit. I kept wisking till most of my sugar had dissolved. It kept dissolving as it sat and I was pleased that my gloss was smooth when I tried it out.

    Then I spooned the gloss (it will still be a litle soft) into 2oz makeup bottles like these. You can find them on Etsy or at a craft store.
