Vikki : do you add water or just the cinnamon powder alone?
Vikki -Apr 16, 2014, 7:12PM
Has anyone ever tried heating up cinnamon in a pan over the stove? It literally soaks up any unwanted scents! I do this whenever i cook fish or fry french fries or burn my food lol. So you just throw some cinnamon in a pan (maybe a table spoon.. or three) and you just heat it on the stove at low maybe medium low and just swish it around with a wooden spoon .. or fork whatever you've got to keep it from burning too quickly. And as soon as you see it darkening or smells like its toasting, throw it out. Don't bother opening the windows or anything because then it won't work. It'll take like a minute or two but trust me when i say your entire kitchen/ house will be odor free! I don't know how it works, I just know it works.

Post image for DIY All-Natural Bug Spray

With all the beauty and happiness that comes with springtime and festival season, we find ourselves in the best of moods thinking nothing but positive thoughts. With warmer weather, though, comes one little nuisance that somehow always seems to slip my mind… until it’s too late: mosquitoes.

I love making new scrubs for the spring and summer season but I never thought to make a bug spray. Such a great idea, especially for my kids when they go and play when the weather gets warm! Coordinately Yours, Julie

Erin & Alaska - They usually have them at Whole Foods! And there are a whole bunch online here. :) Quinn - You should be able to get the ingredients at most health food stores -- I got everything from Whole Foods. Hope that helps!

Citrus causes phototoxicity, which leaves your skin more prone to sunburn and sun damage! Nooo! D:

Awesome idea! I wonder if using a glue gun would give the same results or would it be too thick?

I've been trying to use this idea for a poster of a play I'm directing but it's not working for me :/ Is it possible that I've gotten a blender pen that doesn't have the same chemical as the one you're using? Or are there photocopiers that are actually inkjet printers and not laser printers? I'd really like to be able to use this technique!

I was wondering if you could substitute the coconut oil with sweet almond oil?

I made it yesterday after reading the recipe and it turned out awesome! I used fake lavender plants I found at Michaels looks just as pretty! And of course the sea shells <3

We tried this at home using sticky bumps wax, but the candles don't burn very well...the wax itself catches fire :( thinking it may be due to the petroleum jelly in the surf wax.

Did this with acrylic paint and baked it at 325 for 25 minutes which worked perfectly! Melted wax inside and turned it into a candle too!
