Story from my daughter in Montana – “It was really fun! This guy said he pawned his trumpet earlier today but he heard Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong that I put on through the door and so he came in and gambled $20. He won $1400 and gave me $100! He said he only needed $400 to get his trumpet back and that he would’ve never stopped in if he hadn’t heard my music!”
A friend gave me these great ideas for natural make-up: Beet juice for the lips. The ash of one burnt almond for eyeliner. And here is Avocado Pit Shampoo!
I did a blog on the avocado pit smoothie. But avocado seeds can be added to your soaps and shampoos to use as an exfoliant, and to eliminate dandruff.
1 avocado seed
2 c. water
3 T. aloe vera
3 T. castile soap
1/2 tsp. coconut oil
20 drops essential oil of choice – I used rosemary today, or fresh herbs:
2 tsp. dried rosemary
2 tsp. dried rose petals
Wash and dry your avocado seed. Grate (The color will turn orange ) and put into a pot with the water. Bring to a boil, then let simmer for 30 min. Strain into a bowl, cool and pour into a bottle with the rest of the ingredients, shaking often. Shake before using.
Word of the Day – champu- shampoo
Tip of the Day – You can use this forever. You never have to use commercial shampoos. I’ve been using my natural ones for years and years.
