My 1st Batch of DIY Natural Honey Chocolate Beeswax Lip Balm

Image

Hello Lovelies!

I’m back with another DIY post!!! 😀 I recently found a few natural lip balm recipes on Youtube & decided to try it out. 

 

Original video where I got this recipe (Youtube user: OnTheCheapTip): http://youtu.be/gEtGtMc2mLQ

 

Ingredients:

1 tbsp of Beeswax (purchased from local Farmer’s Market)

2 tbsp of (Extra Virgin) Olive Oil 

1 tbsp of Honey (used organic one from mom’s friend who owns a bee farm)

2 dropperfuls of Vitamin E (original recipe used inside contents of 2-3 capsules of Vitamin E)

1 & 1/2 tsp of Dark Cocoa Powder (I used an organic one) – This step is optional, but that’s what makes this recipe have chocolate flavor. :3

Few containers to put lip balm in (I used a few old eyeshadow containers that I cleaned & a new contact lens case that I cut in half because it had a cute elephant on it)

Directions:

1) Add the beeswax, olive oil, honey, & vitamin E into a glass container that you can microwave & put it in the microwave for a minute, take it out & stir. I actually only put it in for 40 seconds one time & took it out & stirred cuz it looked like it was going to boil, and the guy said not to let it boil because the honey will get hard. This step is supposed to be done 3x, but I just did it once since it felt pretty hot already & everything was melted.

2) Add the dark cocoa powder into the glass container & mix until the contents are well blended.

3) Pour the contents into your lip balm containers, and put the containers in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

4) Tada!!! Your lip balm(s) are done!!!!!

 

Why use these ingredients?

Beeswax – protectant from Earth’s elements, antibacterial for lips, heal & soften the skin.

Olive Oil – cleanses & moisturizes the skin.

Honey – natural antimicrobial, moisturizes, high in antioxidants, acts as SPF.

Vitamin E- heal & repair skin.

Dark Cocoa Powder – contains Vitamin A, B, D, & E, high in antioxidants & minerals, & it tastes amazing!

Hello everyone!

Long time no post. 🙂 Today I’m going to tell you guys how I made this Onigiri, which is Japanese for rice ball(s).

All you’ll need is a rice cooker, rice, some omusubiyama seasoning (I got the veggie kind from a local Japanese market), seaweed (optional), water, and vinegar for sushi (optional).

1) First, cook the rice.

2) Add the omusubiya seasoning to the rice using the measurements in the packaging.

3) Add vinegar to rice (if you want to).

4) Making sure your hands are clean first, dampen your hands with water to make sure the rice doesn’t stick to your hands.

5) Get some rice with your hands, and mold into a triangular shape.

6) Use water to dampen the seaweed and add it to the rice ball (optional).

Tada! Easy peasy!!!

Hope you guys enjoy my blog!

Stuffed Avocados Recipe!

Photo is from my Instagram – http://instagram.com/p/io3VlOF-zU/

Hello! Long time no see! 1st off, I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years! 2nd, I will be posting about this yummy appetizer I made recently. Hope ya’ll enjoy it!

I had posted this picture on my Instagram on some stuffed avocados I made on New Years, and many of my friends had inquired about it, so I thought I’d tell you guys the recipe. 🙂 This original recipe was from a picture I saw on Pinterest (which you can view here), but I took it & altered it a bit to my liking (due to lack of materials & wanting something with no meat).

This is the revised recipe for the Stuffed Avocados (veggie version):

Time: 20-25 min. Serves: 2-3 people

Materials needed: 3 small avocados, 1/3 cup of baby spinach, 2 roma tomatoes, 1 tsp lemon juice, 2 tbsp mayonnaise, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 & 1/2 cup bread croutons (seasoned)

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Halve the avocados and pit. Brush with the lemon juice. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Set aside.

2) In a medium bowl, add & mix the croutons, tomato, spinach, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Fill each avocado half with ¼ of the bread mixture, packing lightly.

3) For the croutons to have a softer texture, let it sit in the mixture for a little bit til it becomes soggy (optional).

4) Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until the bread stuffing begins to brown. Remove and serve immediately.
