    A natural way to add nice scent to your home.

    Recipe #57010

    I will never be a domestic goddess, I like cooking but I hate ironing!! Spraying this on the pieces to be ironed makes that dreadful task a bit more bearable! The classic fragrance for this is lavender, but I make up different fragrances all the time, but do choose a clear and not dark colored oil. At the moment I have a mix of lemon and rosemary in the bottle. So far it has never stained any clothes, just make sure you shake the bottle before use. Years ago I received it as a present, now I give this away as a present and it is always appreciated! If it goes cloudy it is not abnormal, some essential oils do that.

    Recipe #61051

    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!

    Recipe #64532

    Enjoy the fragrance and scrub away at those pots and pans! This will lift your spirits while washing the dishes! Not suited for automatic dishwashers. Thank you, Auntie Karen(Chef Yogi) for this recipe in my gift box!

    Recipe #66995

    Place these homemade rocks in a bowl or dish to scent your room. This is a nice alternative to potpourri! Recipe from www.make-stuff.com I dusted my scented rocks with some cocoa powder and they look so tempting now, you would believe that they are some edible coloured cookies. This will be nice fun to have around on April Fools Day!

    Recipe #66993

    Beeswax furniture polish with its soft, satin shine is considered the ultimate in wood care. What a terrific polish! I surfed across the recipe online but don't remember where.

    Recipe #87573

    Smell gels, a bag of pot pourri (matching scent, of course!), a variety of flavored teas or coffees, and some freshly baked cookies make the perfect gift basket. Great for birthdays, holidays, house warmings, or for those times when someone special needs a Pick-Me-Up. Glass votive jars come in lots of attractive patterns, shapes and sizes, and are very inexpensive. The yield of this recipe depends on size of jars used. Smell Gels must sit overnight to fully solidify.

    Recipe #87636

    Over time, cedar chests and closets lose their awesome cedar smell. Also, the cedarwood becomes dry. This solution revitalises cedar wood and brings back that lovely cedar smell. This recipe is from the book, "The Good Earth Bath, Beauty and Health Book" by Casey Kellar. Enjoy! Please note: This is INEDIBLE.

    Recipe #90150

    Very classy-looking, fairly inexpensive homemade gifts. Time does not include cooling/setting time in fridge.

    Recipe #97913

    We like to make these for gifts for birdlovers, and to decorate our trees with our grandchildren, in an effort to instill being kind to our feathered friends. Once they discover these, they should last for 2 months.You can find these small baskets at many craft shops

    Recipe #118841

    Rose petals can be used for making jewelry and in particular, to make beads. This can be used to make a romantic necklace for a loved one, and kids will enjoy this too! You will need # 24 florist's wire for this recipe.

    My daughters and I make these every year. You can change the look of the crystals by using different color and textures of pipe cleaners (chenille stems). Just choose your color and choose your shape: stars, snowflakes, trees, gingerbread men. The girls especially love using glittery white and silver ones to make 'snowflakes'. We don't just do these at Christmas, either We've used them on our Christmas tree, to hang in our windows, to decorate packages and gift baskets, for grandparents, initials (fun to spell out the kids' names), mobiles, etc. One year we found red and white striped pipe cleaners and made really cute hearts for Valentine's Day to take with a plate of cookies to some shut-in's. They make darling flowers, too. The only limit is your imagination. :o) They are fairly sturdy but the crystals can be knocked off if hit too hard so we spray ours with clear acrylic spray paint/shellac when they're dry (especially the ornaments that we want to use year after year). We haven't tried adding food color to the water yet, but that's on our list of possible variations to see if it works the same. We have also tried reheating and reusing the solution, but with mixed results and you would need to dissolve more Borax in if you do that.

    Recipe #145914

    Have your vase of flowers last longer. Use this solution instead of plain water for fresh flowers.

    Recipe #137039

    This is great during long car trips. It releases a relaxing scent and keeps kids from bouncing off the walls. I think I got this out of a Better Homes & Gardens magazine.

    Recipe #162217

    I use this on my finished cross stitch pieces to prevent mildew (those little brown patches) from appearing and also on my bath towels.

    Recipe #86584

    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.

    Recipe #71485

    Now how come no one mentioned this snazzy little trick in high school chemistry all those years ago?

    Recipe #49932

    This is a wonderful way to remove stains from the kettle. A good trick I learnt from the Asian Age newspaper.

    Recipe #124941

    If you bake and cook everyday then this is a must to have in your cupboard, it's so much cheaper than using cooking spray and works even better than Pam cooking spray, no chemical fumes and will not leave burnt on black residue on the edges of your pans like cooking spray will and will keep forever in your cupboard --- for baking recipes using chocolate you may use 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder in place of white flour or 1/4 cup each cocoa powder and flour --- this may be increased or decreased sucessfully just make certain that *all* three ingredients are the same amounts or the mixture will not work as well ;-)

    Recipe #78579

    A few household items that amazling cleans silver. I had a badly tarnished dish that these few items cleaned right up.
