After seeing a recipe for homemade makeup remover on the Green Beauty Guide Blog, I decided to make my own version with the ingredients we had on hand. I typically use coconut oil to remove my eye makeup, but I'm almost out of my current stash...so trying something new seemed appropriate. This makeup remover is super simple, and it gets the job done!  It doesn't leave quite as much of an oily residue as coconut oil does, which is nice. To make this product,...

  Danielle has been experimenting with a lot of homemade personal care products lately, and I wish I could say that I had the spare time available to join her. Since I don't, and since she's an angel, she has been concocting a few products for me to try as well. I've been particularly impressed with a witch hazel and lemon toner that she made, and it has even become a temporary replacement for the apple cider vinegar and green tea toner...

It's a fact: Everyone's hair looks better when they're at the beach. Those effortless waves are hard to beat. Unfortunately, most of us can only make it to the beach for a week or so out of the year (if we're lucky). The state of our hair should not depend on our proximity to the beach, and with this simple sea salt spray, it doesn't have to!   I've been using Danielle's homemade bottle of sea salt spray for the past couple of weeks, and I'm loving the results. My hair...

  As of late, my skin hasn't been looking its best. I'm sure it's due to some combination of the heat (which means my face is pretty much constantly sweating) and the time of month it happens to be, but I've been more concerned with fixing the problem than pinpointing the cause.  I can easily drive myself crazy when trying to determine whether or not a (usually harmless) change in my routine is to blame. Instead of stressing out about a tiny breakout and overall redness, I found a...

  Danielle made Angry Chicken's version of homemade deodorant a while back, and while she found the tiny heart bars (pictured above) she made using a silicone muffin pan very easy to apply, the combination of ingredients didn't eliminate and prevent her body odor like she'd hoped. Danielle promptly went back to her prior homemade deodorant, and left her unused bars in our refrigerator. I'm always up for trying new things, especially those that are health and beauty related, and Danielle knows this. So...

I got this neat little book while thrift store shopping yesterday, and it's full of neat health and beauty recipes. It even has a reference guide to herbs and instructions for making your own herbal teas (which is apparently as easy as mixing 1/2 cup of black tealeaves with 2 tablespoons of rose petals, hibiscus, orange blossom, etc.) I'll definitely be sharing my favorite recipes and teas with you guys as I try them.   Oh yeah, I also got straight across bangs...
