Home Crafted Sunscreen

We all need to get some sun for that important vitamin D, but when we are going to be working or playing for hours our skin needs some protection.

So why should we make our own?

This is a great question.  I began breaking out in a rash from commercial sunscreen.  It was itchy, red, and driving me out of my mind.  After researching what is in sunscreen – lots of chemicals that are not good for our health –  I started making my own.

What you will need:

  • Double boiler or a pot with a glass bowl to create your own
  • 3 – 4-ounce glass jars
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup shea butter or you can use cocoa butter (I prefer shea butter)
  • 1/4 cup beeswax pellets
  • 4 tbsp. glycerin
  • 2 tbsp. carrier oil like a raspberry seed, apricot, almond, jojoba, carrot seed or another liquid oil
  • 2 tbsp. non-nano zinc oxide
  • 1 tsp. vitamin E oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract – optional if using cocoa butter
  • 60 drops of essential oil – optional (I use 40 drops of lavender, 15 drops of frankincense and 15 drops of peppermint – Young Living Brand)
  • If possible use organic ingredients

DIY Patriotic Flag Wreath

Here is a great way to show your support during Memorial and Independence Day.

Create your own Red, White, and Blue flag wreath.

What you will need:

  • 12″ wreath form, choose from foam, straw, wire or create your own
  • 20 – 1 1/2″ by 24″ strips of red fabric
  • 20 – 1 1/2″ by 24″ strips of white fabric
  • 16 – 1 1/2″ by 24″ strips of blue fabric
  • White stars – depending on size 2 or more
  • Glue/glue gun

Fabric tip:  The stiffer the fabric the more it will be uniform when hung.  If the fabric is soft it will droop on the top and sides.  Consider using cotton, broadcloth, tulle, ribbon, or cut up an old dress shirt.  Whether the fabric is stiff or soft your wreath will be beautiful.  Continue reading DIY Patriotic Flag Wreath

Poo-Pourri Spray – Your Worth It!
