Monday Manifest on Thursday

Things I Have Made From Scratch This Week

  1. Golden Beer Bread with flaxseed instead of chia seeds.
  2. Three batches of chocolate chip cookies.  The first one did not turn out, the second was amazing, so I had to make a third.
  3. These pancakes.  I substituted whole wheat flour and added ground flaxseed.
  4. Face Wash. Combine 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tsp castor oil, and 1/2 tsp sugar.  On a dry face massage in mixture for two minutes.  Next drape a hot washcloth over your entire face for one minute.  Then wipe off the oil with the wash cloth.  That is it.  No toner, no serum, no lotion.  It really feels amazing.
  5. Teeth whitener.  Mash up one strawberry with 1 tsp of baking soda.  Brush on your teeth for one to two minutes.  Next rinse and brush your teeth.  Then floss to remove any seeds from your teeth.  Super clean feeling.

You buy castor oil at Walgreens. It is actually a natural laxative, and can be used in bring on labor. It is like $3.50 a bottle. try the face wash, it is awesome!!

re the face wash...Grandma Rosie would have said Palmolive was better :)

do you mix up a bottle of this, or do it new every time you wash your face? i'm intrigued... i've been using our handsoap, & something tells me that's not exactly anti-aging.

Rachel- I mix it every time, you could mix a larger container of it if you wanted.
