Using two pieces of Danielle's beautiful Amy Butler scrapbook paper (and following her crafty advice), I recently covered the lids of the glass jars on my bathroom counter. They look just as dreamy as I'd hoped. How is this health and beauty-related, you ask? Well, the jars do contain my hair pins, cotton swabs, and face pads/ there's that.

The harmless-looking, awful-tasting mixture above is comprised of  3/4 of a cup of warm water,...

I decided to make the Homemade Cranberry Lip Gloss that I mentioned in my recent post, Homemade Holiday Skin Treats.

Partially-Crystallized Honey Lip Scrub

Link to Partially-Crystallized Honey Lip Scrub

photo credit: Roberto Verzo My lips were feeling kinda crusty (probably from me being in the sun and putting tea tree oil on them when I had that spot of poison ivy), so I used the same local honey that I've been using to sweeten my Perfectly Pear Tea to scrub my lips.  The honey was/is beginning to crystallize, so I figured that it would exfoliate well..and it did! I coated my lips in...
