More Perfume Recipes

Today’s post is about the other two easy perfume recipes – one a roll-on and the other a spray. All you need is a mixing bowl (I use the glass measuring cup), the fragrance or essential oil, cyclomethicone, a stir, and the roll-on containers. The cute containers for both the roll-on perfume and the body…

Smelling good – Solid Perfume

When the last of my perfume ran out over a year ago, I decided that I wouldn’t buy any more. Instead I would make my own. I finally got around to making some last week and thought I’d share my recipes with you. They are all really easy and fun. Today’s post is about solid…

Rebatching Soap

Dave and I will be making some new soap in the next week or so, but I thought it might be fun to make some rebatched soap of all of the scraps I have around the house. You know – the ones that are in the shower waiting to be thrown away. Be sure that…

Reviewing Our 2010 Soaps

This year Dave and I decided to bake all of our bread this year. I started with the HB in Five group attempting to bake through the book. Dave made a variety of wonderful breads from other resources. It was fun and healthy and we’ll do it again in 2011. If you’d like to read…

Wow! It has been a busy week here. I spent three days at our church making sure the Operation Christmas Child program volunteers had enough food to keep them going! Our church was selected to be one of the regional centers so we’ve been receiving boxes all week from area churches and other gathering places.…

Cocoa Sugar Scrub Bar/Great Ebook

I’ve started working on some goodies for Christmas presents. This summer I made mango lotion bars. Lotion bars are nice because you can easily carry them around and they don’t spill. (However, I wouldn’t leave them in a hot car since they might melt.) When they are poured into these push-up containers you don’t even…

Soap #6 Olive Oil Update

Well, I finally tried the Calendula Olive Oil soap I made for my friend Marsha. If you missed the post, here is the recipe. It has a great lather and feels really conditioning on the skin. Since it is 90% olive oil, it is a soft soap and probably won’t last long. But I’m happy…
