Waxed leaves... Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Melt some beeswax in a double-boiler. You can use new wax or old candle stubs (optional - add a few drops of cinnamon oil).  When the wax is thoroughly melted, take the leaves by the stem and immerse them, one at a time, in the wax. Hold them over the pot to drip a bit, then lay them on waxed paper to dry. by Sadie Williams

These are so easy and quick, I made them last year too... simply poke mini marshmallows on either end of a lollipop stick. Over a double boiler or in a microwave, melt butterscotch chips until smooth (or you can use peanut-butter flavoured Wilton candy melts). Gently dip each end of the "swab" in the melted candy and lay to set on waxed paper. Do not refrigerate. by sammsfamily

THIS REALLY WORKS AND LAUNDRY IS SUPER SOFT!!!   Soak a hand towel in fabric softener. Squeeze out any remaining drops from the towel.    Hang it over a chair (or outside on a clothes line) to dry. My house smelled super clean for the three days while this towel was drying completely. Yes, it took three days!    You must make sure it dries completely!    After the towel dries you just throw it in your dryer along with clothes and use it as a dryer sheet for 40-50 loads before soaking again. by christian

Lip Balm:  melt together a 1:1 ratio of beeswax and olive oil (you really could use any oil you want, but olive oil is awesome for your skin. I think I might add in some coconut oil next time, too!), stir in your essential oil (I used 2-3 drops per jar) and pour into a container of your choice! by faith

Store them in an airtight container. Mine in nothing fancy. My kids recycled an empty oatmeal can to use for ours. It works lovely. But you can use a large jar, bowl, an old container from some commercial made dishwasher cubes or packets. Whatever works as long as they stay dry. Hope you enjoyed! by cristina

homemade watercolor paints, they're solid
Combine 3 tablespoons each of the baking soda, cornstarch and vinegar and add 1 1/2 teaspoons of the corn syrup/sugar substitute. Allow the fizzing to subside and mix completely. Pour the mixture into whatever you'd like to use to hold your paints. I bought a $2 paint tray at Michaels, but you can also use a plastic egg carton. Add the food coloring to create your desired palette and leave out to harden for three hours. Make sure you add the food coloring relatively quickly; the mixture actually starts to solidify almost right away. by helene

Body Frosting Whipped Shea Butter  1/4 c. shea butter  2 Tbsp carrier oil (I used sweet almond and avocado)  1 tsp vitamin E oil (optional)  25 drops essential oil (optional)  On a double boiler (I just used a Pyrex bowl placed in a bowl of really hot water), melt the shea butter together with the carrier oils, stirring well. Once the shea butter is completely melted (remember – do NOT heat shea butter on high heat, or it becomes gritty), place the bowl containing the butter/oils into an ice water bath and cool slightly. Stir in your vitamin E and essential oils (if you’re using them). With a hand mixer, begin whipping the melted shea and oils together. It may take 5-10 minutes before you start seeing a whipped consistency, but it will happen.  Once you have a consistency you like, transfer to a lidded container. Should keep 6 months (especially if you use the vitamin E to help preserve). by sandra1969

A small bottle of vinegar can make a huge impact with your toilets. If you poke a hole into the lid of a bottle of vinegar and then put the whole bottle into your toilet tank upside down, the vinegar will prevent a toilet ring from forming by releasing some everytime you flush and also use LESS WATER with every flush! by lynn

With Halloween coming up, share this to your page so you can remember to do this! After you scoop out and carve your pumpkin, dip it in a large container of bleach and water (use a 1 tsp:1 gal mix). The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.” by Jen Munday

Use ice trays to make your dishwasher cubes. You can find cheap ones at at your local dollar stores. If you have a Dollar Tree they have them there. They are horrible for ice making as they don't stack. But great for this, and only a dollar for 2 trays. You will need 4-8 depending how much soap you desire to make at a time. I make a double or triple batch sometimes. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THEM FOR ICE MAKING  EVER AGAIN! So don't use your good ice trays. Dedicate ice trays solely for this. by simone
