Just did a DIY all-natural face mask and body scrub!

My skin is so amazingly soft and smooth! I love using all-natural products to pamper myself!!

If any of you are interested in what I used, here’s my simple recipe:

Body Scrub
•2 spoonfuls of milk (just any regular spoon)
• 5 spoonfuls of raw honey
• 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil
• 1-4 drops of vitamin E oil
• 1-2 drops of lavender or lemon essential oil (depending on your preference)
• 3 spoonfuls of sugar
Mix thoroughly in a bowl, then scrub into your body - also works great as a face scrub!
For the face mask, the recipe calls for all the same ingredients, just omit the sugar.

Apply it generously to your face, then wait about 10-15 minutes for it to dry (it will feel sticky). Then wash off with warm water.

Mendelsohn took Einstein on a tour of the structure, waiting for a sign of approval. The design, while logical and perfectly sufficient to its purpose, stood out like an “ungainly spaceship” in the suburbs of Potsdam. Einstein said nothing until hours later, when he whispered his one-word judgment: “Organic”. Mendelsohn said that he had designed it out of some unknown urge, letting it emerge from “the mystique around Einstein’s universe”. Via wiki

DROUGHT: THIS JUICE IS ALIVE

Conscious companies are the way of the future. When I look to make a purchase, I want to buy from someone I trust. For most, that depends on quality and reliability. However, in a world where so many corporations revolve around the bottom line, it’s refreshing to see a business with character, not blinded by greed. I want to put my cash behind people who bring dependable products to their consumers in a mindful way, supporting the environment and keeping the customers’ well being at heart.

Detroit’s beloved James sisters dreamed of making raw juice commercially available and viable. What is raw juice? To put it simply, it’s juice in its purest form, made from 100% organic fruits and veggies. Conventional juice is dead, pasteurized and preserved to the point of reducing it to a mere sugar-y substance, low in nutrients. Raw juice is technically alive, hence the short shelf life, but full of all the goodness you’d find in the ingredients.

Four years ago, DROUGHT was born, a product of this sister super team on a mission to bring an honest approach to the health food industry. They make a great team.

“What is one’s shortcoming is another’s strong suit. We step in where needed and don’t allow each other to flounder. We are direct with one another and at the same time allow one another the flexibility to be independent. Of course we regularly push each other’s buttons, but we have one another’s best interest in mind. Trust me, none of us would be in business together if it were cutthroat competition with one another behind the scenes. We support one another 110%.” –Caitlin James

Their advice for anyone with a similar vision is to, “Do it now! Don’t wait or get caught up in the how’s—just do it! The how’s will work themselves out. Thoughts become things.”

Decarboxylation under mild conditions. I added 1-2 reagents dissolved in water and the product started to form in less than a minute as a participate. The other product of the reaction what was CO2 what was monitored by counting the bubbles what left the flask at the right side through the gas bubbler. When no more CO2 comes out, it’s ready. 

If every reaction would be as simple and easy in organic chemistry like this, it would be boring.
