Don’t like chemical hair removal crap like Nair and not a fan of shaving or waxing?
Sorry I really hate the smell of Nair but I have used it and it irritated my skin and I have done waxing and it wasn’t fun and then shaving is tedious for me and does nothing for the health of my skin. (Actually since I had my cancer treatment a few years back it left me with very sensitive skin so I don’t shave anymore.) I was thinking of the simple chemicals that are used in homemade beauty products and did some searching for an option for hair removal.
- Homemade Hair removal that isn’t terrible!
- 1 tbsp of iodine 2%
- 1 cup of baby oil.
- Rub your hairy area with the mixture and let set for only 5 minutes.
- Then gently wipe away with a damp cloth.
- Viola!!!! NO MORE HAIR!
SO hooray for home use of science and that is really what DIY is homemade science solutions. I have a book that is a collection of homemade simple items that make the cost of home lower.
So I tried my Juicer today for the first time in a long time… and it was fun.
I made first carrot and apple juice and then I tried beet leaves and apples. My favorite of the two? The beetroot leaves and apple was the best by far. I’ll post some pics later when I have some but I cleaned up and enjoy the drinks already.
Yup it’s the last week in January and all I can think about having a real garden to plant in this year. We are going to have drought conditions in most places and strange wildfires in California and Oregon currently. There are other things trying to distract me like the Syrian conflict, shootings in the U.S., the Winter Olympics but with all of the problems out there I just want to grow something.
I was asking my friend about her gardening plans and she let me know about another friend who was looking to split some seeds and order through the same company. She also said that another person was wanting to do a Start exchange. So of course I went crazy and created a spreadsheet in about an hour and copied and pasted planting and seeds for the right month and dreaming up this great network.
After taking a few bits to the grinding stone with the input of some folks my spreadsheet was done. I think my crazy was a bit too much but I am just so excited about having a garden this year and not just pots. My hope is that I can just get a few things to grow and that I can harvest a 3rd of what I can put in the ground.
Good luck everyone and never let anyone tamp down your excited feelings about gardening if you do it will never grow.
Apparently I need to get a Purrsonal trainer to get in shape. Thank goodness for cats and dogs everywhere helping us humans get healthy enough to take care of them.
I seem to do as much work away from my job as I do when I am at home. This a common story told but like is about working to make it work. Anyway tomorrow I return to work after being off for my knee surgery to repair my torn meniscus. Sadly I am up because my brain will not turn the toggle switch to off. So I’ve gotten back up and did some update to the pages on my blog and I hope you will check them out. The plan is to keep improving my blog site here and I am planning on creating a recipe page for cool things I have tried or am planning on trying. Other plans include a section page dedicated to fun projects I am working on like building a beehive and growing some fun stuff in my garden space.
I am going to try and get back to bed now that I have gotten some ideas out and on the page of my blog. Thanks for putting up with my midnight musings.
- Prepare 3 or 4 glasses of warm water with different food coloring. Make sure to use a lot of coloring, the stronger the better.
- Use cream or white roses and split the bottom of the stem in 4 pieces, about 2 inches high.
- Put each piece in a different color water and let sit for approximately 36 -48 hours.
