    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!

    Recipe #85197

    The smell of the essential peppermint oil always makes me happy. I loved learning about this recipe from the book ' Spa - Glow Guide - Simple Steps For Health and Well Being' by Andrea Mc Cloud. This is a quick and easy way to invigorate the body and the soul. It increases blood flow to the brain, gives you an energy boost and leaves you feeling fresh and renewed. I hope you enjoy it too!

    This is very inexpensive compared to all the whiteners on the market. And is not the same as those gels on the market this has only 2 ingredients which you know and are at hand in every home. It gets your teeth & gums nice and clean. I do it once every couple weeks. A great way to remove wine, tea, coffee, & tarter stains. If you don't like the taste add a a drop of mint extract. It's is SAFE for your use and has been used for a long time. You can check this article at http://www.dentalgentlecare.com/whitening_safety.htm Take Note A recent report suggested a "possible" link between tooth whitening and oral cancer. It was based on two (only 2)case reports of patients who contracted oral cancer with none of the known risk factors. There are no new studies cited. We call this to your attention because the report got substantial media play. Interestingly, the report itself states that carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide-chemicals generated in the whitening process-AREN'T CARCINOGENS IN THE MOUTH. June 2002 2003 2004 http://educate-yourself.org/cancer/benefitsofhydrogenperozide17jul03.shtml This is no more cancerous then the fat, grilled food and processed foods people put in their bodies filled with ingredients your can't read. If you go into your cabinet and read the hydrogen peroxide bottle it states to use as an gargle and mouth rinse.

    Honey is antiseptic, cleaning your pores, and toning your skin. It's for your face but go ahead and enjoy the other half of the apple with lemon juices and honey on it whie your face gets renewed!

    Recipe #167602

    No joke, this simple concotion from the famous, Vermont Folk Medicine book by D.C. Jarvis works like a miracle, but it's just Mother Nature at work for us. Apple Cider Vinegar is known to have so many medicinal/healing attributes, so put this one to work for your sore or strep throat. Yep....strep. This will knock the crapola out of the bacteria that's tryin' to knock the crap out of you. Be very sure that you are using real apple cider vinegar, as Heinz now makes an apple cider vinegar "flavored" liquid. (WHY??)

    After hearing about the famous Hershey Spa and being too far away to visit there, I decided to come up with my own recipe for Chocolate Milk bath. Here it is...

    Recipe #84973

    After reading many different crock pot potpourri recipes I came up with this one, and my house smells wonderful! :) If you don't have a small crock pot, just use a sauce pan and simmer on your stove. These are fun to throw together because you can use what ever you want to create the scent you want and you can't really mess up. I used the spices sold in the cellophane bag, they are very inexpensive and are usually in the Hispanic section of the grocery store.

    Recipe #351360

    This is great for injuries and keeping beverages cool.

    Recipe #91931

    It's messy and not quite appealing to look at, but this foot scrub uses coffe and sugar to make those crocodile-skinned extremeties become positively human again! (plus it smells great!)

    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.

    Recipe #260941

    Vanilla is so popular as a fragrance in everything from bodycare to candles and air fresheners---it has that secret something that draws us in! In tests done by the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago to understand the impact of smell upon sexual arousal, it was discovered the smell which arouses mature men the most was vanilla. In addition to being an aphrodisiac, soaking in this fragrant milk bath is very soothing and will make your skin soft.

    Recipe #311529

    You can replace the raspberries with 3-4 medium strawberries and the yogurt with heavy cream if you don't have sensitive skin. From either Care2's Home Channel or Delicious Living.

    Hopefully you don't need to used this but try it if you do. Be sure to drink plenty of water. Call your doctor immediately if there are signs of shock or heat exhaustion, such as: dizziness, rapid pulse, rapid breathing, nausea, fever, or chills, severe skin blisters, extreme thirst.

    Recipe #308529

    When I was little and lived in the country I used to visit an older couple. Once when I was stung by a bee my "adopted grandmother" made this to take away the sting. I've also included directions for getting the stinger out.

    Recipe #253566

    I don't remember which magazine I read this in (I was at the doctor's office) but we just tried it. The mosquitoes are swarming right now and my kids had tons of bites. They were in total desperation with the itching. I put a little on each bug bite, and they got relief almost instantly! Very easy.

    Recipe #380323

    From Delicious Living. Glycerin attracts moisture; that's whay makes it such a great moisturizer - it brings in moisture from the air to the skin - so it can actually increase the moisture in the skin by adding water from the air. This is great for oily skin. It soaks in pretty quickly and feels cool.

    Recipe #357448

    Found this on a MYO cleaners website and love how cheap it is to make! It's so easy to make, too! I keep mine in a quart sized jar and it takes up so little room on my shelf.
