Chef #248023 inspired me to make this after I made her Recipe #256951. Shea butter is known for its cosmetic properties as a moisturizer and emollient. As well as an anti-inflammatory agent. Shea butter can be effective at treating the following conditions: fading scars, eczema, burns, rashes, acne, severely dry skin, blemishes, dark spots, skin discolorations, chapped lips, stretchmarks, wrinkles and in lessening the irritation of psoriasis. Also provides natural UV sun protection but don't rely on it as a sunscreen because it filters out only little amounts of UV rays. Shea butter absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. It can be bought on line.

A great way to remove dead skin and hydrate and smooth the rest.

Recipe #93665

A very rich body butter. Great for rough spots-hands, feet, elbows and knees.

Recipe #74991

A wonderful dirt cheap alternative to buying a $5 bottle of Febreze. This version is about 5 cents to make and the scent is much nicer too. I use it all the time.

From the Thursday magazine, this works like a charm and is so easy to put together! Enjoy!

This is really good for between patio stones or rock areas that tend to sprout weeds. Do not use it on your lawn. The weeds will grow back but then just spray them again

Recipe #37424

This came from Karen Logan's "Clean House, Clean Planet". I mixed up a batch to try it one day and haven't used commercial all-purpose cleaners since. Good essential oil combos are tea tree and peppermint, orange and cinnamon, and lavender and lemon. Keep out of reach of small children as the borax is somewhat toxic.

I love to make some for friends and include the beauty recipe with it so they can make their own too.

Yum - a deliciously scented lip gloss that is not only fast and easy to make, but really nourishes dry lips. A favorite with women of all ages!

Makes a great gift or party favor.

A lovely balm, I received this recipe from a friend at a gift basket making party where some of the baskets contained homemade products like this.

This is great for sinks, showers and even hands. My husband fixed our roof and his hands were full of tar. He used this and the tar "melted off!" He said it was better than the hand cleaner mechanics use to get the oil off their hands! It shines my stainless steel sink, it doesn't scratch my stovetop and it is awesome on the tub. Best of all it is easy and cheap! I found it on a make your own cleaner website and it works!

Great as a deep cleanser for acne. Aids fast healing without scarring. Honey is an antibiotic. Bacteria cannot live in honey. Extremely nourishing, aids fast healing without scarring. Helps in rejuvenating the skin leading to the elimination of fine wrinkles. Great moisturiser.

Recipe #112019

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.
