    Thumbs up Homemade Facial Products and Make-up

    Ok, so I've finally come to the decision to make my own version of that "tingly pouty lip stuff" that's rather popular these days.

    Ingredients:
    Jojoba oil (base)
    Ginger oil
    Cinnamon oil

    I also might add some glycerin for thickness. I might even add a spot of Peppermint oil for an added "zing" during the holiday season. Candy cane kisses anyone?

    I just haven't been able to justify spending $15 for a small tube of it, when I'm experienced enough in herbal lore to make it myself. And after locating the prices for the ingredients, it'll cost me about $10 to make a full 8 ounces of the stuff. MUCH cheaper.

    For other money savers, I also learned a long time ago that many expensive clay masks are made from the exact same clay as kitty litter. A great face mask can be made from unscented plain scoopable litter, pulverized and blended with a bit of fruit essences and a light moisterizer. I've acutally tried this one myself, and it works great.

    As for breasts - take an old bra, coat the sides with a blend of mashed overripe bananas and honey and wear overnight for soft skin and added "perkiness".

    The last two "alternatives" were mentioned about 7 years ago on a TV special.

    Anyone have any homemade tips to share?

    Added perkyness? Always a good thing, but it sounds a bit uncomfortable...have you tried that one yet?

    as for the (unused)kitty litter face mask, I'll stick with my more expensive premade versions...I have a cat...that would just creap me out to much....

    I like the lipgloss idea...may try that one.

    --------------

    my own personal favorites...
    -mayo as hair conditioner
    -I make my own bath soaks using an assortment of herbs (lavender, chamomille, rosemary, lemongrass, mint, etc...)
    try adding finely ground seasalt (exfoliates, detoxifies)
    I prefer making my own oatmeal bath (plain old oatmeal and a food processor, so much cheaper)

    Want soft feet? plain old vaseline and comfy socks, rub feet w/ vasoline, put on socks, sleep, presto perfec feet in the morning...

    I have a ton more but I can't think of them right now, I'll post more when I think of them...

    The only frightening part - I'm my own guinea pig, and I guess Ken will be also. The hard part will be figuring out the exact proportional balance of oils - it could end up a "hot time" on the ol' lips. But, they are all-natural and non-poisonous ingredients, so a bit of trial and error won't be be life-threatening, at least. I just might end up walking around with twin Goodyear blimps attached to my mouth. Heh.

    I like your gift idea though. They do sell small roll-on and brush bottles at the supply shop...... print up a cute label and tie a ribbon on 'em, and voila!

    Now, to come up with a zesty summer "flavor" too..... hmmmm. Sunkissed Citrus?

    Yes, and it's a bit sticky, but the result is quite nice.

    Yeah, I know. I have three. I can just imagine what might happen if I laid down for a bit with the mask.

    I like the lipgloss idea...may try that one.
    Go for it! Just be careful with the ginger and cinnamon in oil form - while non-toxic, they are also irritants. So, start off with a very sparing amount compared to the jojoba and glycerin, and then up it if needed.

    -mayo as hair conditioner
    I LOVE this one. It has brought my hair back from the dead on many occasions.

    Want soft feet? plain old vaseline and comfy socks, rub feet w/ vasoline, put on socks, sleep, presto perfec feet in the morning...
    Ooooh! Awesome idea! I'll have to try this.

    thanks for the link. Great ideas...I do the conditioner instead of shaving cream, works beautifully, no razor burn..
