* I just bought Amy’s Potions & Concoctions pdf booklet. It’s really great. I’ve already been using her deodorant for the last 18 months and I love it. It still sweat a little bit in the summer, but who doesn’t in So.AZ heat?! I’ll be making the hairspray (I normally don’t use any, but I thought it would be nice to try & play with ),magic teeth cleansing solution, herbal toner, facial oil and bugs don’t bite me balm. Many of the other recipes will be saved for cold season.
* I just recently learned about OCM (oil cleansing method), I had to try it out. I have to say that IT-IS-DIVINE! I’ve been cleaning my face this way for about a week and my skin feels soft and actually looks glowing (if I do say so myself). Normally, I have oily skin in the t-zone with some minor blemishes. I really like how this make my skin feel, not oily at all, just soft and healthy.
* Next, I want to go shampoo free! I tried last year, cold turkey, with horrible results. My hair had a horrible transition period and I gave up. Since then I have been using this shampoo bar, which I really like. I also stopped washing on a daily basis. I’ve always felt I had to because my hair would feel greasy after one day. Now, I feel I can start again, hopefully without the dramatic transition period. If I need to, I will still wash with my shampoo bar, gradually weaning myself off completely over a period of time. SO–many–people have had wonderful results with this method. It’s really quite fascinating and I’m excited to give it another go.
* Lastly, I just signed up forVintage Savoir Faire’s Summer 2010 Grow-a-long, which involves growing 3 plants (mint, thyme & chamomile-plus a bonus plant) then using these plants to make an assortment of different herbal recipes/remedies. Sounds fun, don’t you think? Hop over to sign -up.
