Hey there everybody! Are you enjoying your fall weather? I am for sure! Although I’m really not ready for winter though! The thought of having to take care of my chickens in multiple layers makes me want summer back. Or spring. Or fall. Anything but winter! Anyway, back to this post.
I’m sorry I havent posted in a few weeks. Three weeks ago, I was in Kentucky at the Devon conference. Two weeks ago, I was on a weekend vacation in Alabama with some great friends. And last week, I was hooked up all day working around the house and on the farm.i should be able to post next week though, as far as I know anyway.
Today I thought I’d shared a few recipes for some natural health care items.
Natural Homemade Remineralizing Toothpaste:
5 parts calcium powder or calcium magnesium powder
2 parts baking soda
3 parts Xylitol powder this ingredient isn’t completely necessary, but just keeps it from tasting bitter
3-5 parts coconut oil for desired texture
Optional ingredients essential oils, grapefruit seed extract, myrrh and trace minerals (I used grapefruit essential oil, and trace mineral drops)
So far I really like this toothpaste. I just put it in a little container and scoop it out on my toothbrush. Every now and then I have to use the other end of the of the toothbrush to loosen up the toothpaste.
Whipped body butter
1/2 cup Shea butter
1/2 cup cocoa butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup fractionated coconut oil
30 drops chosen essential oil ( you can use which ever one of ones you like)
-Bring all oils and butters to a boil in double boiler (I just heated mine up to when it had all melted, if I do it longer trying to boil it has an odd smell)
-Let it sit until mostly cool and then add essential oils
-Let set in fridge
-Whip with mixer and put in containers
It will be a little greasy, but if you put it on you on your legs, I just put on sweatpants and it’s fine.
Wish me luck today, I’m going to attempt to crochet a hat, and sew a shirt. I’ll tell you all about, fail and not so much fails next week!
This is gonna be it for this week. Have an awesome weekend and week! Enjoy the beautiful fall weather. If you have any questions, just comment them! Have a great day!
