Are you a lip balm addict like me? You will never find me without some on my smackers. My lips are always dry, no matter what time of year it is. I’ve come accustomed to making my own since it is so simple, and this way I know exactly what goes in it. I decided to make some with tint in it to spice things up! Nothing wrong with that- right? This DIY Natural Tinted Lip Balm is DELICIOUS with its Chocolate Peppermint Flavor! It is the perfect natural color, made with only a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your home. Containing no synthetic or hard-to-pronounce chemicals, it’s all natural. The recipe is based off of my DIY Natural Lip Balm recipe, so if you already use/make that- you are in for a real treat! Even better, it beats the $8 price I pay for tube at the store! I can make about a dozen of these babies for less than $5.
Holiday Bonus: Nothing beats these DIY Natural Tinted Lip Balms as holiday gifts or stocking stuffers. Make tons of people happy without breaking the bank or leaving your kitchen! 🙂 (more…)

Cough, cough…. sniffle, sniffle…. I am just turning the corner and getting well again after a NASTY respiratory infection. One of the things that helped me most to get some respite and relief from the discomfort in my chest were these nifty little DIY Shower Steamers I made in minutes! Turn your shower into a soothing machine as the power of the eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils fill the air as you inhale, instantly calming your lungs and opening breathing passages. You can buy these life-savers commercially but they are expensive and who knows what is in them. In just a few minutes, and with only 4 ingredients I already had in my pantry, I whipped these disks up. When they are finished drying, instant relief. (more…)
You are driving along the road. Suddenly, Sam the Squirrel darts across the lanes of traffic and you SLAM on your brakes to avoid squashing him! Sam is saved! Next thing you know though, the entire contents of your bag that was on the front seat is all over the floor of the car. It is inevitable that something really small that you NEED rolls under a seat and is almost impossible to retrieve. Does this scenario sound familiar?!? I would bet that something like this has happened to almost every driver on this planet. I know it has to me, and I have found a really simple solution. These DIY Bag “Seatbelt” Clips for the Car take minutes to make, are simple to use, and keep your things perfectly organized and safe. You will never have to crawl through your car on your hands and knees again!!!
DIY Whipped Body Cream made with Mango Butter
If you know me, you know that I make virtually all of my own skincare and body care products. I’m a little obsessed :). Well, I am at it again after getting my hands on some of this FABULOUS Mango Butter. I usually use a high quality Shea butter as an ingredient in many of my DIY products. After getting my hands of some of this LUXURIOUS mango butter, I had to give it a try in place of the Shea butter. The result- still AMAZING! The major difference I found was that the Mango Butter was a bit lighter in weight than the Shea Butter, so if offered a slightly lighter feel while slathering it on. Choices…. I love the choices I now have! 🙂 This recipe is a must try for some seriously smooth and moisturized skin!
