Hi, I love the look on my skin, except the cacao powder seems to give me pimples every time I use it.. I got the organic all natural 100% cacao powder.. Has cacao powder give anyone pimple? I don’t know if I should keep trying. Thank you! : )

Why is it that dried flowers and herbs must be removed? I was wanting to make a toner with witch hazel, essential oils and some dried lavender flowers but wanted to leave them in for looks. Wouldn't the other ingredients act as preservatives to keep the flowers from molding?

This looks delicious delicious as well as refreshing! I've always been confused about how a toner works though, when exactly should I apply it?

Lydia - It doesn't take much for coconut oil to melt. Just the heat of your hands will do it. If you keep the spray in your bathroom where it's usually humid it should pretty much stay liquid :). I keep a tub in my pantry in my kitchen and it never returns to solid form.

How do you keep the coconut oil from solidifying?

Tried making this with cool water sticky bumps and ended up with HUGE flames! The entire surface of the wax caught fire and made like 6" flames. Don't use sticky bumps. Or just don't light it. Very dangerous.

I just did this with some Ikea porcelain mugs and some Martha Stewart glass paints. They look beautiful, and after I baked them for 25 to 30 minutes they felt like the paint had set and dried nicely. I just went to wash one however, and with one fell swoop of my sponge, half of the paint came off. And I'm not even using fancy dish soap; I'm using doc bronners. Any suggestions on how to make the paint stay? Is there a sealant I should use or should I soak the mugs in some kind of acid first to open up the pores in the porcelain first? Any help would be much appreciated Thanks!

you need to use enamel paint, or glass paint it is often called. you can find these at your local chain craft store (michaels, joanns, hobby lobby) and big box stores (walmart, kmart) martha stewart makes a line of glass paint and Plaid makes a line of enamel paints. acrylic paint will not stay on ceramic/glass/porcelain the way enamel paint does, since enamel paint is made for this type of project and the oven heat set makes it more permanent.

Fabulous! I use all the unscented, fragrance free products. What a great idea though. However, I only pack clothing that barely wrinkles and I do roll some clothing. In fact, almost everything I buy needs no ironing. I do the shower trick if needed and it does work. After I tighten the closures in the suitcase I then carefully fold jackets, including leather on top and they come out great. Usually on travel day I wear an outer garment - coat, jacket - so I don't have to pack it.

Post image for DIY Pressed Flower Phone Case

Pressed flowers and leaves are something I just can’t seem to get enough of. It’s gotten to the point where, at any given point, I have a bunch hidden between the pages of various books in my home just waiting for a time I’ll want to use them. This DIY is my favorite way to use pressed flowers yet.

Oh the joys of the paper pot press. I actually hadn’t the slightest clue what a pot press was until just recently, when our friends over at Terrain granted us one, along with no other instruction than to do with it as we pleased… Now I’m in love.
