Foaming Hand Soap

Here’s one of my favorite DIY recipes. Spend a little for ingredients, save a lot over time!

Foaming Hand Soap

Combine the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp. (1.5 oz.) liquid castile soap (I buy Dr. Bronner’s Baby Unscented Pure Castile Soap purchased at Organic Harvest in Birmingham.)
  • 2 Tbsp. (1 oz.) glycerin (After trying several different brands IMG_4610[1] of glycerin,
    I’ve settled on Essential Depot Greener Life Essentials Vegetable Glycerin, available on Amazon. If you opt for a different brand, you may need to add another tablespoon to reach the best consistency of soap.)
  • 8 drops lemon oil
  • 8 drops orange oil (I use Beeyoutiful essential oils. If you opt for another brand, be sure you choose oils that are 100% pure, preferably from a full disclosure company.)

Yields 10 oz. foaming hand soap. Store unused soap in a glass jar and add a dropperful of grapefruit seed extract to serve as a preservative if you are not going to use the soap within 3-4 weeks.

Outside? With the mosquitoes??

IMG_4095.JPG

It’s that time again. You know, when the weather is nice and you want to be outside but then remember that gnats and mosquitoes are outside, too? We have four products in stock that just might make that time a little more comfortable.

Geranium oil has a sweet, flowery scent, but gnats don’t seem to like it. My husband puts a few drops of it on his cap when he spends time outside. He reapplies it every hour or so, and it helps keep the gnats away, especially the pesky ones that would otherwise fly around his face while he’s working.

Bee Outside is described by Beeyoutiful as “an all-natural spray that is all about outdoors, warm summer days, dusky evenings and great times with friends and family.” My personal experience is that it’s also about preventing mosquito bites. And it’s more pleasant than other natural repellents that smell strongly of citronella. The really great thing about Bee Outside is that the ingredients are actually good for the skin- no DEET or other harmful chemicals.

If you don’t mind the strong smell of citronella, go for the essential oil big gun for repelling insects. Citronella oil is strong, so be sure to dilute it in a carrier oil and test it on a small area of skin before applying it liberally. To repel mosquitoes, you can dilute citronella oil in a little almond oil and rub it on your skin with a cotton ball. For repelling ticks, you can add a small amount of citronella oil to your lotion, sunscreen or shampoo- about 6 drops of oil per ounce of product. For a larger batch of repellent, add 3 ounces of distilled water to a fine mist spray bottle, then add 15-20 drops of citronella. Shake the spray bottle before every use to avoid burns.

And if any insect should get past your best repelling efforts, don’t forget to reach for the Miracle! Miracle Skin Salve helps to relieve the itchiness of insect bites and to soothe irritated skin.

All four of these products are on our shelves right now. Get yours today by clicking on any link in this post to shop our online store. If you’re in or near Helena, email us or message us on Facebook. We want to help you enjoy being outside!

Do you like your soap?

SFR website, Summer BOGO

Do you like your soap?

Several years ago, our favorite soap, Pure and Natural, began disappearing from grocery store shelves. We bought up every bar we could find for a while, and then we just couldn’t find any more. We tried countless bars of soap over several months, trying to find a soap that would clean without over-drying our skin or leaving an oily residue behind.

We couldn’t find one. So, we enlisted a nearby soap maker to make one for us!

Pure Olive Oil Soap is an all-natural hand, face and body bar made from pure olive oil and natural glycerin. It’s basically unscented, so it just smells clean, and it leaves skin clean and moisturized without oily residue.

This is now our family’s bath bar, hand soap, and facial bar. I personally like it better than any other soap I’ve ever used, including Pure and Natural. Why not try it for yourself? Purchase one 4-ounce bar for $4 or three bars for $10. To make it even better, this summer we’re throwing in an extra bar for every bar you order.

There’s no better time to try this soap. Buy one, get one free. No catch. No limit. No coupon needed. Stock up for yourself, or get some for friends and share the goodness!

BOGO offer good through August 15, 2017, while supplies last.

P. S. We’ve had some people with oily skin tell us they’re not interested in a soap made from olive oil. I know it’s hard to believe, but it really isn’t oily! If you have oily skin and you want to try it risk-free, email us. Let us know that you have oily skin and you want to put the Pure Olive Oil Soap to the test.  Place your order. Use the soap daily for 1 week. If you aren’t convinced that the soap cleanses without making your skin more oily, let us know and you’ll receive a full refund. You must email us before placing your order to take advantage of the refund offer. But I’m pretty sure you won’t be asking for a refund!

Happy Summer!

DSC_0131.JPGMonday was the official first day of summer!

For those of you who are teachers and homeschooling parents, summer brings a change of pace from the rest of the year.  During this time of regrouping and planning for next year, I hope you’ll also consider the supplements that will help your family in the year to come. Even if summer is just a change of temperature for you, it’s still a good time to consider adding a multivitamin to your daily regimen.

It’s my personal belief that every American needs to take a multivitamin!  I know you make healthy choices and prepare nutritious meals for your family.  But because of the food options that are available to us, not many of us can meet all of our nutritional needs with diet alone.  Thankfully, the Beeyoutiful Supers are available to help fill in the nutritional gap.

If you’re not already taking a multivitamin, resolve to change that this summer!  This is an especially good time to start because of our referral points plan!  As I said, I think EVERYONE needs a multivitamin.  So talk to your friends and encourage them to start this summer, too.  When your friends purchase any Beeyoutiful’s multivitamins from Smith Family Resources- SuperDad, SuperMom, SuperLady, SuperKids, or SuperMom 2 Bee- you can earn referral points which can be redeemed for FREE multivitamins!

If your friends are ordering online, tell them to click the box by “Referral?” and enter your name.  If they’re ordering by email or phone, they should mention your name at the time the order is placed.  You’ll automatically receive one point for each individual vitamin order and four points for a Beeyoutiful Family Pack order!  (Maximum referral points per friend=4)

Ten points may be redeemed for one bottle of the Super vitamin of your choice- absolutely free with no shipping charge!  (Referral points have no cash value and may not be redeemed for any other products.)  When you’ve earned ten points, we’ll contact you by email and send your free vitamins on their way to you.
