Most of you know that this past few years have been particularly hard for me with everything from care taking of family members with debilitating diseases, major moves and being diagnosed with cancer myself.

One of the things I like to do to feel better is have some ME time.  Now while everyone deserves some ME time, not everyone can afford to do the SPA experience regularly.  So, I thought I'd share some of my homemade recipes with you.
2 tablespoons petroleum jelly
1/2 teaspoon sunflower oil
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Whip until creamy.
  • Massage cream into your cuticles and nail beds.
  • It will keep 2 weeks.
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons mild liquid soap
  • Mix together in a bottle with a spout.  (I use an old honey bear bottle)
  • Shake before using so mixture is well blended
1/2 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup sunflower oil
  • Whip together until well blended.
  • Place in an air-tight jar.
  • Massage over body.
  • Rinse and pat dry.
  • Keeps for a month.
1 tablespoon green tea powder
3 drops lemon juice
1/2 cup warm water
  • Whip all together to form a paste.
  • Smooth over your face and relax 10-15 minutes.
  • Rinse and dry.
