    This is by far the best all purpose cleaner I've found. It is fabulous on windows and mirrors, degreases wonderfully, and cuts gunk on sinks etc. and shines, shines, shines. I use it for everything but wood.

    Recipe #26191

    This makes an excellent gift. Make sure you make some for yourself too though because it really smells wonderful. Please note, you need to use whole cloves. Ground cloves are much stronger and will definitely overwhelm the other scents. If you aren't a fan of cloves, feel free to leave them out entirely. I do sometimes.

    The name brand is expensive but this is an inexpensive alternative and less harmful to your clothes than bleach!

    Recipe #32716

    An inexpensive alternative to the store-bought variety. To check for color-fastness: test a bit of cleaner on an inconspicuous area of the carpet before using the first time.

    Recipe #101568

    Freezing is a simple and excellent way to preserve fresh culinary herbs. Packing in ice cube trays makes it easy to always have fresh herbs on hand, adding fresh herb flavor to soups, sauces, and drinks. Some people prefer to freeze in a good quality olive oil, I prefer the boiling water method, which is listed in this recipe here today. You can freeze herbs individually or in combinations of other herbs.

    Recipe #111461

    This is a lemonade-based fast prescribed for detoxification and weight loss. I found it when I was looking to detox my body. It was presented to me by a highly regarded holistic nurse, Sandra Duggan, who is one of the co-founders of the Cayce-Reilly School of Massotherapy at the ARE. According to the book she gave me, this is a healthy way to fast because between the lemons and the maple syrup you get all the micronutrients you need to sustain the body. Grade B syrup has higher contents of those macronutrients so use it if you can find it. Also, organic lemons are best. You can leave out the cayenne if you are spice-averse; its role is to help break up toxic deposits within the body. The citrus can do that as well; the cayenne just helps it go faster. It would be well to get a colonic during the time of your fast in order to aid along the detox/weight loss process. I used the fast for 2 days and lost 10 lbs that week (though weight loss was not my goal). Use this fast with spiritual goals in mind and you can achieve great results.

    I thought I would post this recipe for Hummingbird Feeding Solution, because it took me a while to find it!

    This recipe makes the best bubbles!

    Recipe #54559

    This is handy when you have forgotten to buy baking powder.

    Recipe #38711

    KIDS LOVE THESE!!! So much cheaper and easier than the kind you buy at the store.

    Recipe #66418

    I have only used this once, but am very happy with the result. I would often use V05 hot oil tubes but this is much cheaper. I used eucalyptus as the essential oil, but I think lavender would be good too.

    Recipe #86064

    I buy a transparant or white liquid soap for this, it shows the honey color when made. You could also use a neutral bubble bath as a base. I now sell this at craft fairs and for the packaging I bought old fashioned glass milk bottles. If you plan to give this as a gift, save up small salad dressing bottles, that is what I used to use. My favorite fragrances for this are: patchouli with orange, jasmin, honey or lavender. The oil is good if you have a dry skin, you can half the amount or leave it out because it will reduce the bubbles, and don't forget to tie your hair up otherwise it gets greasy from the oil!

    Recipe #67804

    Treat yourself or your friends with this body scrub, it removes dead and flaky skin cells. Instead of the orange you can turn this into a lemon or lime scrub. The essential oil is optional but it does give it a nice smell. The salt will settle, shake the jar before use.

    Recipe #58422

    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

    This is just wonderful! I found it in the book "Ooh la la Perfect Hair" by Susie Galvez. Enjoy!

    Recipe #107291

    My girlfriend who constantly is outside in the winter, gave me this wonderful recipe for dry skin....and guess what...it really works great!

    This mixture is just as good if not better then those little packets you get when you buy cut flower. Add this to you home grown cut flowers to enjoy indoors.

    Recipe #114031

    Parsley has a healing effect. This is suitable for an oily skin. Do a small test-patch first on your face. I found it left a greenish glow on my skin but tried it out on others and it was alright.

    Recipe #63221

    Good, inexpensive & easy window cleaner!

    Recipe #35297

    This is a wonderfully relaxing sea salt scrub because of the lavender scent. It is great for calming nerves, relieving stress and aiding in sleep. Almond Oil and Grapeseed Oil are light carrier oils that won't clog pores or leave your skin feeling too greasy, just smooth and moisturized. Most health food stores and some organic sections of major supermarkets carry these ingredients.
