Homemade Milk & Honey Cleanser, Hair Setting Lotion from Flax Seeds and Vinegar Hair Rinses!

I'm snowed in today and having much fun on my recipe website revisiting some old fashioned recipes for household cleaners and beauty items. It occurred to me as I was mixing up some homemade bread that some of these 'recipes' are perfect for my budget website as well!

I hope you enjoy some of these old depression era recipes as much as I do!




Milk & Honey Cleanser for your Face

1 T milk
1/8 t oil
1/8 t honey

Mix ingredients well. Apply to face. Blot off with a damp cloth. This is especially good for dry skin.

Hair Setting Lotion

1 c flax seed
3 c water

Simmer seeds and water together for a few minutes. Strain and thin to desired consistency.

~~~

Vinegar Hair Rinse

1 t cider vinegar
1 qt. water

Mix together. After shampooing use this as a final rinse to make your hair shine.
