To people concerned that this is "unsafe" or something similar, zinc oxide is the original sun protectant. It's the active ingredient in LOTS of the sunscreens that you will find at your health food store, whole foods, etc. This recipe is very, very likely to work as a sun screen - as in, it pretty much IS a sun screen, equivalent to the things you would buy somewhere like whole foods. However, contrary to what you will read in the post, this sun screen will NOT allow you to absorb vitamin D. You cannot use a sun protectant if you want to absorb vitamin D. And our society is very deficient in this vitamin. Many supplement with it, but the best source of vitamin D is always going to be from the sun itself, so DEFINITELY use this sun screen to keep yourself protected when necessary, but... don't use ALL the time or you'll never get any vitamin D - Catie

My sister uses a very similar recipe for a sunscreen. I as well use it. I have very fair skin and burn very easily. My sister and I also have red headed fair skinned babies and use it on them and it Works wonderful. and it will also nourish your skin.

You made my day! I am so tired of being dinner to those critters while gardening and don't want to spray chemicals on my body. A couple of years ago I was suddenly awoken after being bitten by an insect while asleep in a hotel. The bites immediately became swollen. Fortunately I had a banana in my bag. I used the inside of the peel because I had read that before. It did take away the itching but I still had to go to the ER because the swelling did not go down. Eventually it subsided with no further ill effects. I am going to try the suggested remedies and so happy that I found all this info. Will pass it along. The dryer sheets I keep in my suitcase and I have one at my beside at home. Last summer I didn't get any bites while in the house even though I did find some buzzing around.

I wonder if this would work on plants as well. It would be great to have something that has a nice aroma yet would discourage those critters munching away on their leaves.

I can definitely use this. Door stops are usually not too stylish, this is the perfect twist.

An inkjet printer will NOT work. Must be a laser printer. Very important to know that so you are not disappointed.
Jennifer T -Jul 14, 2014, 7:32PM
Ok, I can't get this to work. My blender pen I tried first didn't contain xylene. So then I just got some xylene from the hardware store, no luck. Then I tried acetone, nothing. I tried two different ink jet printers, neither copy worked. I tried transferring to water color paper, thinking my first paper in my journal was not the right kind. What else could I possibly try?

Flowers are certainly nature’s eye candy… but certain kinds are able to be eaten, too. So why not make ice pops with them? Read more » -Jul 26, 2014, 7:38AM
What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious familiarity about unpredicted feelings.

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.
