before spraying any essential oil on your body or anyone else please use a little on your arm 1st to see if you have a reaction to the oil.essential oils are condensed & strong to find out about essential oils get the illustrated encyclopedia of essential oils by julia lawles.do not use oils on skin full strenght use a carrier oil with it.also check out aromatherapy illustrated guide by clare walters .before using any product do your home work 1st,just because it is natural does not mean you can't have a small side effect.google the products or do the patch test 1st.put 1drop on a cotton swab apply on the wrist elbow under your arm show it will not show put a band-aid on for 24hrs,keep dry itching or reddess will appear,do not continue use try a different oil.

Cool! Really usefull and sweet, I definitely agree with that "door stops are usually not so stylish". I made my own too! And got one extra chair 'cause the one is not anymore playing a door stop ;) Thanks!

Hi! Lovely photos. I could use a little guidance. I just bought Promarker's blender pen but nothing happens! Does it exists different kind of blender pens or why doesn't it work? Kind regards

Dear Blog creators, You have so many comments here, but you are not actually responding to them. Your post is creative, but you don't really explain steps in details. Just tried everything step by step and it didn't work. :((( You have to state what paper you use for the copies, how do you actually photocopy the images (clicking PRINT from the computer after you have actually scanned the film with all the images OR?), how long do you wait for the transfer to come through, etc. A bit disappointing. I'm sure your followers would appreciate your time to clarify these steps. Kind regards, Kriss

As soon as spring hits, I become taken over by this incredible urge to incorporate fruits into everything I do. I want to eat them, I want to drink them, and I want to incorporate them into my beauty routine. Read more »

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?
Tomiko -May 18, 2014, 1:25PM
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.
Lydia -May 05, 2014, 7:30PM
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'm going to give this a go with alcohol inks instead. Hopefully if I don't go too strong I'll still get the watercolor effect.

What a wonderful idea for making original, personalised mugs! I will most certainly give this a try, as my kitchen ware is rather boring and some personalised mugs would make it a little more interesting ;)
