Making your own lotion

Ok, first things for I have to say I haven't try this but I really want to! I think the biggest part is the look of looks very messy, and detailed and that sort of puts me off of it, but I think I just need to put aside some time and give it a go!

Here is a list of what you need:

  • Blender
  • Spatula
  • Thermometer (meat)
  • Double boiler or pot with a measuring pyrex or bowl suspended in the water
  • Clean jars
  • Coconut oil (can also use jojoba or sweet almond)
  • Olive oil
  • Beeswax (100% pure)
  • Distilled or purified water
  • Borax
  • Essential oils
  • Optional aloe vera gel and vitamin E

All the other details for this great recipe are at An Austin Homestead. If you're not interested in this project you should still check out the blog! It's got lots of goodies I think you'd enjoy!

DIY Solar Mason Jar Lights

I saw these originally at Creative Cain Cabin and thought "Wonderful, I needed lights for my mason jars...why didn't I think of this?" I was going to put candles in there but I'd have to take them out when I wasn't using them because it gets to hot and they would melt so this is perfect!

DIY: Mini Terrariums

 I keep seeing these posts everywhere on how to do these little terrariums and I saw the idea 2 years ago at a craft sale and just took my time getting around to doing it. So here's my version, always simple!

Find the plants you want to use: I had a spider plant from my mom and I had some moss outside (you need to make sure you pick plants that can handle these conditions of course)

Put a little soil in the bottle, and then some rocks, then your moss, and put your spider plant (or whatever other plant you pick) off to a side, a little bit on it's own, making sure the roots are in the soil.

Put a little bit of water in and there you go! Pretty easy right?

The this one (above) is still waiting on it's spider plant but I needed it to grow roots first (below) so when that's ready it will go in there too.
