Entry: Home and Beauty Recipes Aug 23, 2005

Recently, I came across some really simple home and beauty recipes that I want to share with you. I am still making cards and quilts (I have one quilt almost finished). I've been a little distracted the past few months with other things but plan to get back to my crafting in time for the holidays.

Foot Scrub

2 Tablespoons Canola oil
2 Tablespoons sand
3-5 drops rosemary oil

Combine and mix into a paste.

TO USE: Massage scrub onto feet. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. Apply moisturizer.

Green Tea Toner

1/2 c water
2 t green tea leaves

Boil water. Pour the boiling water over the tea leaves in a clean heat resistant container. Let steep for 2 to 3 minutes. Strain and allow the liquid to cool.

TO USE: Use a clean cotton ball to apply liquid to face. Do not rinse.

Wrinkle Release
(I haven't tried this - use with caution)

Fill a spray bottle, half with tap water and the other half with white alcohol. Spray onto wrinkled clothing to release wrinkles.

Shower Cleanser

Fill spray bottle with two tablespoons (it's okay to guess) of the Dawn dishwashing liquid.
Add two teaspoons of the white vinegar (again, it's okay to guess) then fill the rest with tap water. Shake mixture. Use to clean bathroom and showers as needed. I hope that you will find some of these useful. Until next time ... Happy Crafting
