Soak 3 round Tbsp. flax seeds in 2 cups water overnight.
In the morning boil the seeds and strain the seeds out. Mix the mucilage with 16 oz. apple cider vinegar with 5 Tbsp. of vegetable glycerin.
You can use lemon juice but it tends to spoil if not used right away. The vinegar will not smell after it evaporates.
Boil again and then beat with egg beater or blender. Add a few drops of lavender oil and place in the bathroom in a liquid soap dispenser.

The best way to blend the oils with the lotion is to pour the lotion into a bowl, add the oils and then mix very well. Once mixed, add the lotion back to the bottle.
Patchouli, sandalwood and carrot seed oils help aid with dry skin. The patchouli and sandalwood oils have a lovely rich scent when blended together. The carrot seed oil is wonderful for the skin, but is a little harsh in aroma.
Borage and Evening Primrose are wonderful carrier oils for helping the skin. If you have either of these oils or can afford to get a small quantity, add a little to your lotion for to give your skin even more nourishment.
It is always wise to do a skin patch test first on new blends first before using often to ensure that you do not have a sensitivity to the blend.

Here’s a tonic for tired, sore, chapped, calloused feet. This cream may also be applied to insect bites, or other areas of the body that can tolerate the icy-hot sensation of peppermint.
Make essential oil blend at least 3 – 5 days ahead of time. Place Shea butter in large glass bowl and, using the back of a large spoon, mash until it breaks down; slowly add all other ingredients to Shea butter and mix until oils are well blended. (Note, leaving your Shea in the sun for 30 minutes or so beforehand will help to soften it naturally)
DO NOT melt your Shea quickly or crystals will form. For extra creaminess: use a mixer (blend for about 15 – 20 minutes) or a food processor (blend for 5 minutes). Pour into desired containers and allow mixture 1 – 2 days to set up. For quicker set up, place in refrigerator several hours.
Method of use:
Begin with a very small amount, (about the size of a pea), work in between fingertips until cream is pliable, apply to desired area. Repeat as necessary. Use 1 – 2 times daily, depending on severity of problem.
Slowly heat paraffin with the oils in a double boiler. Stir until blended. Add in the glycerin and remove from heat. Let cool before using

First, I took my favorite lip balm recipe (I believe I found this in the library) which consisted of: vegie oil or jojoba oil, beeswax, honey and eo’s. Since I had some of this left over (because I didn’t have my lip balm tubes yet ), I did the following:
Take 1/2 tbsp premade lip balm; add: 1/2 tbsp oil of your choice (I used Sunflower, as that’s all that I had on hand); melt this in the microwave (I did 50 sec on low then upped it to about 30 sec on high-whichever works out to melt this back down…) I then added: 4 drops each: Camphor, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus (I was going for scent alone this first try)
After mixing this all together, I put it in the fridge for about 15 minutes. I then took it out (it still looked like Lip Balm) and stirred it and left it for another 5 minutes (don’t ask why, you don’t have to follow exactly what I did: this was purely an experiment)…
THEN (here’s the good part)… I got myself some really hot water and soaked a hand towel for a few minutes. During that time I smoothered about one-half of my concoction on my poor dry feet then put the hot towel over them….AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!
