Lavender, Lemongrass and Tea Tree Oil – Heavy Duty Deodorant spray
After the deodorant cream recipe from 2 weeks ago I’ve had some feedback from some of you that you do not want deodorant cream…
You want spray!!!
OK, so I googled a bit and made some experiments and I’m quite happy about it because I like this one better!
And this is it:
90ml Rose Water
15 drops lavender essential oil
30 drops lemongrass essential oil
5 drops tea tree essential oil
If you want it really heave duty, you can replace 30ml of the Rose water with apple cider vinegar but if you work in an air conditioned office you may not need it. Give it a try and find out, when you make if your self you can have it just the way you like it, don’t you?
You can play a bit with the essential oils though I do think this is a nice lovely scent but I wouldn’t omit the Tea Tree Oil.
This guy is making it a bit differently, more like the previous deodorant but he is soooo funny:)
I would love to hear some of your own ideas and you can share them by clicking on comments. You can share your own ideas or link to nice ideas from the web. Don’t forget to package beautifully, some ribbons, stickers, fabric or even buttons. The package can upgrade these gift ideas into real gifts.
Get Inspection Ready, How To Clean The Carpet And Make It Smell Great With Essential Oils!
When I came to New Zealand I lived in a unit in MeadowBank, Auckland. After a while, the unit just opposite to our door was for sale. In 2 days a truck from Barfoot and Thompson came with furniture and stuff and the unit looked like it never did before. They made this place look like a lovely place to live in. Another 2 days and Bingo, sold. I’m sure they sold it so quickly mainly because of this. Probably for more money too.
You won’t do all that when your landlord comes for inspection but here is a nice idea for a first good house impression. Of course you can use it also when you want to let your house, before the weekend to enjoy yourself and your family or just anytime.
So, how to clean the carpet?
1 cup baking soda
15 drops essential oil
Mix and shake well together in an air tight jar and live closed for anytime between 20 min. to 2 days.
Sprinkle it all over your carpet and leave again for 20 min. to a few hours.
That’s it, house smells lovely:)
Carpet cleaning scents ideas
Might be a good idea to try it first in a diffuser to see if you like it because on the carpet it will stay for days.
All natural skin lightening products from Etsy.com – reviews
I will try in this post to feature some real all natural skin lightening skincare. This natural thing is very misleading. Everybody wants to say that their products are natural and what do you know? they do say so. It sometimes mean that one ingredient is natural, sometimes half of the ingredients are natural almost never is it 100% natural.
First, I must reveal the fact that I make myself all natural skin Whitening products and yes, I sell them also on Etsy. So I may not be so objective but I will do my best.
I chose Etsy because I think it’s the only place where you can buy all natural skin lightening products or cosmetics in general and even see uncensored feedback about them.
My review are based on customer feedback, list of ingredients and general knowledge. I never tried these products myself. It’s not easy for me to stop using my products on my self to reveal my hyperpigmentation only in order to be a laboratory rabbit for another all natural skin lightening product. Sorry for that:)
OK guys, let’s start:
