oanasee asked: Hello, about using the sunflower oil as a cleanser, I just wanna say it is better to rub it in for 10 minutes, after a few days you will start feeling little grains coming out of your pores (at least I did), oh and it is called the oil cleansing method. Not sure if you knew and not meaning to offend, just helping ^^.

Thanks! I’m actually new to this kinda of life style! So it’s all good!

Make Natural Deodorant!

Using your own blend of natural ingredients is healthier and less expensive than using store-bought deodorants, and still helps refresh your skina and prevent odors.

To make a basic, but fragrant, deodorant, mix 3 tbsp of vodka and 3 tbsp of either witch hazel, cornflower, or rose water. Add to the mix 40 drops of essential oil. For best results, steep the deodorants for about a week before using.  

Stay cool this summer!

How to Build a Greenwall

Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain’s majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.

I tried this recipe from my previous post on my friend and it actually lightened up her hair! Unfortunately, I don’t have a before and after picture, so you’ll have to take my word for it. Here are some pictures from the experiment!
