**I accidentally posted this to my personal journal, too. So if you get more than one post for this recipe, I apologize for the repetition**

1 cup water
1/3 cup dish soap (Joy, Sunlight, etc)
2 Tablespoons light corn syrup

Combine ingredients and enjoy. If you don't have bubble blowers around
the house, be creative and try using different objects from your utensil
drawer,(e.g., apple corer, potato masher, handle of a basting brush,
etc. They work.)

Notes: Glycerin works well in place of corn syrup. I usually
make up about 2 - 3 gallons of the mix to have on hand. "Aging" the
mixture actually helps/ last longer on cooler days; the water evaporates
quicker on hot days. Go figure. Other things that work as bubble
makers: fly swatters (the Bubble Guy http://www.bubbleman.com/ will wire
them together so that they fan out), plastic utensil holders (BG cut
them in half so it folded then flipped out), BG even used pieces from a
lamp cover as a wand. Have fun with it. Your kids will love you!

This shampoo is great for people who live in dry areas

1/4 cup Basic Shampoo
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
1 tsp glycerine
1/2 tsp avocado oil

Mix all of the ingredients together. Pour the shampoo into a container
with a tight fitting lid. Shampoo as normal but leave on an extra few
minutes. Rinse with cool water.

*note* this shampoo may separate; always shake well to remix before
using.

The aloe vera plant is sometimes called the "wonder of the desert"
because of it's many uses, especially as a moisterizer for the skin and
hair.

This is regarded as a potent flower potion, because carnations were used to spice up wines and foods and were also a symbol of passionate love to the Romans - and to modern Italians. They have a wonderful clove-like taste, but you must use the real thing - called clove pink or clove carnation. Sipping this with someone you like quite well could move the relationship on to a higher plateau


You will need:

1 cinnamon stick

petals from about 6 clove carnations (approx. 100g fresh flowers)

a pinch of ground ginger

100g brown sugar

500ml spring water

a few drops of glycerin

sparkling mineral water or lemonade to serve


Put the first five ingredients in a saucepan and bring very slowly to the boil, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer for about ten minutes, when the syrup begins to thicken, remove from the heat and cool. Add a few drops of glycerin, and the mixture will become pinker. Make up your potion by straining about 30ml of this liquid into a glass and topping up with sparkling water or lemonade. If you're not a teetotaler it is also delicious added to champagne - and will turn it a gentle rose color
