DIY Coconut Lotion Bars

Lotion bars are really popular in the "DIY skin care world".  They are all over Pinterest.  I have avoided them due to possible messiness and inconvenience.  Well, I'm glad I bit the bullet and made some because they are so helpful for dry skin.  Plus, for those of you looking for something a bit more solid then yesterday's Body Oil, these are for you! Plus, they are just so cute! What You'll Need: Molds Coconut Oil Shea Butter Beeswax Vitamin E Oil (optional) Essential … [Read more...]

Gardener’s Soothing Hand Salve

Gardening is a favorite past time for many people-I get it-you literally make life out of nothing!  It's so rewarding, yet can be so grueling!  I live amongst A LOT of nature, some of which is not wild.  Meaning-I've got a whole lot of weeding to do almost on a weekly basis!  My hands get wrecked and ravaged after a day of gardening.  I'm talking cuts, raw skin and rough dry patches.  I'm sure you fellow gardeners know exactly what I'm talking about.

DIY Dry Skin Roll On

So I am a salve making fool right now.  Seriously.....  I've made like 10 in the past few days!  The possibilities are endless!  I decided to make one I could put in a roll on (deodorant) container so I could roll it on my heals, knees, elbows and mainly on the backs of my hands while working at the computer!  It works like a charm and was a cinch to create!  This would be great to take to work and use since rubbing in lotion tends to make a mess on your computer keyboard!  I used Olive Oil as … [Read more...]
