Homemade vicks shower disks If you are congested, pop one in the floor of your shower, let the steam do it's work! Not sold in stores anymore!! Instead of essential oils can use 2-3 tsp of Vick's Vapor Rub.
Homemade vicks shower disks If you are congested, pop one in the floor of your shower, let the steam do it's work! Have you seen the commercials for the Vicks Vapor shower disk thingies? You put one of these disks in your shower, and voila thanks to the vapors in it, you're magically healed, your cold is gone, and your face is shockingly free of snot. I always used to watch the "Noxema girl" splashing water on her face and wondered how she was able to wash her face without being completely overrun with boogers. I'm the only one? Yes? Ok, moving along then... Regardless, Vicks makes these things and I'm sure they're super expensive for something that is just going to wash down your drain. You know where I'm going with this, right? Yep. I made them myself. Sarah's Homemade Vicks Shower Disk Thingies: -Baking soda -Water -Essential oils: eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender. -Muffin tin -Muffin liners 1) Add baking soda to a mixing bowl. I don't really measure. Maybe 2-3 cups? 2) Slowly add water until you've made a thick paste. Add just a little water a time. You'll want the mix to feel like putty. 3) Add 15 drops of each essential oil: eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender. 4) Spoon in to a muffin tin, and let sit out for 12-18 hours. You can also bake these, but I just left them out overnight. 5) Pop these suckers out of the paper liner, plop it in your shower, and let the essential oils steam away your stuffy nose. Put them anywhere on the floor of the shower; it doesn't matter where! Added 4/7/12 - for anyone who is having issues with these being "crumbly", try using 1 cup of baking soda and 1/3 cup of water (plus maybe a few tbslp more) and baking for 20 minutes at 350. THEN add a few drops of each essential oils to the cooled "puck". That was a suggestion from a commenter and I tried it this morning with great success! I'm a quick shower taker (less than 5 min), and my "disk" was only about 1/3 gone at the end of the shower. You can store these in an plastic container, mason jar, etc
(I WANT TO DO THIS!!!!) A Favorite Things Party- My friends have started a great tradition of throwing a "Favorite Things" party twice a year. A week before Baby M was born, we gathered at my friends home for the Spring party (they also have a Winter party in early December). Funny enough, I think this may be the only photo of my pregnant belly. Here's how it works: Each person brings their favorite thing (anything you like.. your favorite lip gloss, favorite kitchen tool, favorite gift wrap...
A Favorite Things Party- Here's how it works: Each person brings their favorite thing (anything you like.. your favorite lip gloss, favorite kitchen tool, favorite gift wrapping supply, a gift card for your favorite frozen yogurt, etc.). It can't cost more than $6, and each person brings five of the same thing. When you arrive at the party, you write your name on five slips of paper and throw them in a big bowl. The bowl is passed around, and each person takes five names (making sure you don...

Let's start with strawberry margaritas, and move on to Hurricanes. The party's just getting started.
I am bringing this dip with some toasted whole grain bread! I am a cheeseaholic.
Roma Tomatoes, Fun Recipes, Hot Caprese, Caprese Dips, Mozzarella Caprese, Recipes Appetizers, Capr Dips, Dips Recipes, Hot Mozzarella
Hot Caprese Dip Recipe Appetizers with fresh mozzarella, roma tomatoes, basil
Hot Mozzarella Caprese dip RECIPE: Hot Caprese Dip serves 2-4 10 ounces fresh mozzarella, chopped into cubes 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and juiced 3 tablespoons freshly chopped basil (or about 1 tablespoon dried) + more for garnish Preheat oven to 375. Make sure tomatoes have as much juiced squeezed out of them as possible – this will prevent the dip from becoming soupy. In a small baking dish, combine chopped cheese, tomatoes and basil and mix. Bake for 15 minutes, then broil for 2 minutes so cheese becomes bubbly and golden. Serve immediately with crackers or melba toasts. Note: dip may appear “watery” which is why it is VERY important to get as much moisture out of the tomatoes as possible. Also make sure dip is consumed immediately, as the longer it sits, the more juice that develops. Don’t worry if there is a little bit of juice – it is still delicious!

homemade whipped coconut oil body butter recipe I love that this recipe only requires one (yes, one!) ingredient. Anything else is completely optional. It also only takes a few measly minutes, and you'll have enough whipped body butter to last at least a month or two. In fact, if you get carried away, put some in an attractive jar and it makes a great gift! It feels sinfully luxurious as a moisturizer, and yet an entire jar of it costs less than $2 to make.
