My wonderful Auntie Karen(Chef Yogi) has been so generous and kind to me. She sent me over half a dozen awesome essential oils which is something I have been wanting for so many months!! She sent me this wonderful easy recipe that was listed on www.make-stuff.com I have just finished making this and using it in my horribly dirty sink and now, I have the most clean and glowing sink I have ever seen in my kitchen! Nobody would believe I haven't used even a little Vim or Jif tonight to clean my sink if they saw it. Something so easy as this, and using just 4 ingredients is a true winner and a sure keeper in my book. Hope this will make you as happy as it made me! I am going to use this as long as these oils last!;) In my opinion, this would make a nice gift to give a would-be bride or your best friend for that matter or your neighbour or mom or MIL. Whoever you gift this to, is going to love you for it! ENJOY!
NON FOOD!! Cheap alternative to store bought Windex. I keep a spray bottle in each bathroom for quick and easy mirror and counter clean ups. I wipe the mirrors with crumpled newspaper instead of paper towel to achieve a lint free shine!!
We have cats and dogs and once a month I ”treat” the house using this. I use mostly lavender and rosemary oil but also like lemongrass or peppermint. They say that using lavender and rosemary it not just refreshes but it keeps away fleas and moths. I think that makes sense because I make soap that I use on our dogs and that also uses rosemary as one of the ingredients. If you have friends that like Potpourri as a gift they will also like this.Once you have made this and like it, try to buy the rosemary and lavender in bulk.
Why buy sidewalk chalk when you can make it. This recipe is so much fun to make with your children but just as much fun to give away as party favors or as a gift. The cook time is the actual time it needs to set to get hard.
To make good potpourri, one needs to start with flowers that are dried or freeze-dried. The 3 basic factors one must look at when buying flowers to make a potpourri are: colour, texture and season appeal. Once these flowers have been thoroughly dried, start making your potpourri. Fresh flowers should NOT be used because they will have a mold & mildew smell, and, ultimately be tossed out. Enjoy this recipe which is from the book 'The Good Earth Bath, Beauty & Health Book' by Casey Kellar!
