nail file
base coat & top coat
light color nail polish (white or cream works best)
small strips of newspaper
small glass dish

First find a font/style of type on a newspaper you like. Cut small strips out of the news paper that are big enough to cover your nails. Shape and file your nails till they are just the way you like! Paint them with a base and 2 or more coats of color. Let them dry completely.
Once they are dry pour a little bit of alcohol in a small glass dish. One finger at a time, dip your nail in the alcohol for 10-15 seconds.
Quickly grab a piece of newspaper and firmly press it on your nail. You want to do this step fairly fast, if you press it on too long the nail polish will stick to the paper and come off. Roll your finger as you gently pull the news paper off the nail. AMAZING! The text from the paper sticks to your polish. Continue doing each finger until all your nails are covered in text. It might take a few tries to get this down, but once you get the hang of it.. Piece of cake!
To finish off this cute look and make your polish last longer, paint with a top coat.

 Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment for Damaged Hair



hair tr ...
Units: US | Metric
  • cup mayonnaise (room temperature if possible, like from a jar of brand new mayo just off the grocery store shelf)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • egg yolks


  1. 1
    Blend all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. 2
    * If possible use room temperature mayo - if not, let mixture warm up to room temperature*. **If you are in a rush and just can't wait - microwave the mayo for 15 seconds - but be careful - if you nuke it too long it begins to separate**.
  3. 3
    Apply thoroughly through your hair adding extra at the ends.
  4. 4
    Pile on top of your head and cover with a plastic shower cap and then cover with a towel to keep in the heat from your head.
  5. 5
    Leave on for at least 10-20 minutes and then rinse out.
  6. 6
    Should make 1 to 2 hair treatments depending on the length of your hair.
  7. 7
    If you don't want to save the left over for another treatment use whatever is left over as a moisturizing face mask. Also can be used on dry elbow and knees (for best results, this should be used immediately after making and not saved. It will still work, but won't be as effective as when it's fresh).
  8. 8
    Do NOT shampoo afterwards, just rinse it really well. Do this on a day when you are not going to go out. Any oil that clings to your hair after you rinse it out, will continue to condition your hair until the next time you shampoo it out.
  9. 9
    *** for best hair conditioning purposes, use immediately after making without refrigerating first. The reason is, the fats and oil will penetrate your hair follicles better if it is not cold. Tip to remember for all hair care: Warm/Hot opens the hair follicles so that conditioner can penetrate deeper. And cold water closes the hair follicles. So after you shower your hair, after you rinse every thing out, rinse again with a blast of very cold water. The coldest you can possibly stand. This colder the water blast will also make your hair super shiny!***.

Melt recipes using beeswax or petroleum jelly as the base ingredients in a pyrex jug in the microwave or in a double boiler. Don't overheat: watch carefully, using small increments of microwave time, and heat only until just melted. Use individual recipe directions for instructions on heating paraffin wax.

Make sure the containers used for preparation and storage are clean and sterile. You can reuse old lip gloss pots or tubes, but thoroughly clean out the old product, then wash with soap and water, sterilize with rubbing alcohol, rinse with clean water and dry the container before reuse.

Use only cosmetic grade Beeswax or food grade ingredients. 

You can buy small containers suitable for lip balms at some drug stores, dollar stores, and craft stores, or you can check these snap-lid containers online at Amazon: Frontier Natural Products - Plastic Lip Balm Container With Snap Lid - 0.25 oz.

Methods of Melting Lip Balm

  • Microwave: If melting the base ingredients in the microwave, use short increments of time and watch carefully, removing as soon as the ingredients have just melted.

  • Over Hot Water: Some recipes recommend melting the base ingredients in a ziploc water placed in a pot of hot tap water. Once melting is complete, unzip the bag, add flavorings, rezip, then knead lightly to mix all the ingredients together. Snip off a small corner of the bag and pour lip balm into containers.

  • Double Boiler: If using a double boiler to melt lip balm, use low heat and remove as soon as melting has occurred.
Storage: Once your recipe is complete, pour the melted lip balm or lip gloss into small containers and let cool completely before using.

Bring four cups of distilled or purified water to a boil, them remove from heat. Add half a cup of rosemary leaves, and 1 teaspoon borax (available in the laundry aisle). Cover and steep for two hours, stirring once or twice. Strain and pour into a dispensing bottle (a recycled shampoo or conditioner bottle with a flip top opening works wells).

Rosemary Scalp Restorative
A hair lotion recipe for men, designed to stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth.
Ingredients: 1 teaspoon vodka, 3 drops of rosemary essential oil, 5 drops of lavender essential oil. Mix the essential oils with the vodka, then add one tablespoon of water.
To Use: Dip fingers into the lotion then massage into the scalp. Can be used before or after washing hair, and between shampoos as well.

Facial Herb Steam Bath with Rosemary
Here, rosemary is used in combination with other herbs in a fragrant facial steam bath that stimulates circulation, opens pores and removes impurities while tightening skin.
Preparation: Bring three cups of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon each of dried yarrow, sage, rosemary and peppermint. Cover and infuse for five minutes.
To Use: Place the pot securely on a table where you can sit in front of it comfortably. Drape a large bath towel over your head and shoulders then remove the cover on the pot, lean over, and arrange the towel so that it also forms a tent over the steaming pot of herbs. Keep your eyes closed, and your face about ten inches away from the pot. Allow the steam to circulate, breathing deeply and relaxing until the steam completely dissipates. Finish by gently rinsing your face with lukewarm water. This regimen can also be followed by a face mask and moisturizer for a full facial treatment.
Tip: Strain the herbs from the leftover water and add it to your next bath for relaxing aromatherapy benefits.

Rosemary Facial Scrub or Facial Mask

Apply to your face with fingertips, rubbing gently in circular motions all over the face and throat areas. Rinse with lukewarm water
