DIY Liquid Roll-On Deodorant

For many years, I have used stick deodorant. But recently I found this recipe from The Mountain Rose Blog on how to make Liquid Roll-on Deodorant.
According to The Mountain Rose Blog, with consumer awareness growing to avoid nasty chemicals on your sensitive underarms, natural deodorants have become on of the most desired personal care products.  Even though "natural" options have come on the market in recent years, many popular brands are manufactured by larger umbrella companies that might not have your ethics at heart.  So if you want to start making your own, then try making this recipe.

Thyme & Witch Hazel Facial Bar DIY

Photo by Jan Berry
Here is a really intriguing facial bar recipe that appears on The Soap Queen's website.  It is called Thyme & Witch Hazel Facial Bar and it is written by Jan Berry.  What is interesting about this recipe is that the distilled water is infused with thyme and that witch hazel and honey are combined and added at the time of trace.  According to The Soap Queen she was told to avoid adding witch hazel to cold process soap.  Her thought was that the alcohol content in the witch hazel would react poorly.  So it may work after all.
