Beeswax Beauty Benefits

I'm sure many of you know the main purpose of beeswax in DIYs, right?  It's to harden up oils so we can make salves/balms in many different textures.  Did you know that beeswax is actually beneficial to the skin?  It is and it  has many redeeming qualities your skin will love!

Citronella Beeswax Candles

Bug season is officially upon us and it's time to open up the arsenal.   I live in Oklahoma and my usually painfully dry state is now swamplands.  I have standing water in my backyard!  It's crazy!  More rain is on the radar and the fleas, mosquito and ticks are laughing their fat little asses off at the girls and I scrambling around like lunatics trying to shield ourselves from all the winged creatures feasting on our blood!   I'm not even going to mention our poor dog and cats! Last year … [Read more...]

Raspberry Vanilla Lip Balm

I've really been enjoying experimenting with some "out of the ordinary" DIYs!!  I've done a couple of tinted lip balms using either lip stick or mica powder but neither coloring ingredient I enjoy using.  Cosmetic grade mica is hard to find and lipstick, if it's natural, is just to expensive to break off and throw in a pot!  I've wanted to play with using food in my DIYs but I have yet to buy a food dehydrator.  Well, come to find out, Trader Joes has the most wonderful freeze dried fruits!  And … [Read more...]

The EASIEST Lotion Recipe Anyone Can Make!!

Many of you have asked me if you can ditch the emulsifying wax in my other DIY cream recipes and use beeswax instead.  With quite the know-it-all stance, I quickly assured you that beeswax would not properly bind oil and water.  I had tried this method in my early days of experimenting with DIYs and created the most greasy, non-cohesive "cream".  It was super gross and I reluctantly had to throw away a lot of wasted ingredients. I don't know what got into me this morning but I decided to give … [Read more...]
