Coconut & Rose Body Scrub- Apparently, this is the secret formula of one of the biggest spas in the country! They charge an arm and a leg for its "skin rejuvenating properties"...which basically means it makes your skin look fresh and glowy!! You could pay hundreds at the spa, or make it for just a few dollars at home...tough call ;) Pin now- make later!
Add orange peels (or any citrus peel) to a quart of white vinegar in a closed container and let it set for two weeks. Combine citrus/vinegar solution half/half with water and use for cleaning. Works on floors, tile, fixtures, etc. Smells good and is tough on scum! Best of all there are no chemicals.

THE 5-MINUTE DETOX -- one slice each of watermelon and honeydew melon, blend on high for 2 minutes.

Watermelons contain fibre, lycopene, vitamin A and vitamin C, to cleanse the kidney, bladder, heart, stomach, colon and liver for full body rejuvenation.

For a sore throat - cut up 2 lemons, drop them in a small mason jar and pour raw honey over them until it fills up about 1/3 of the jar. You can immediately see the juice from the lemon being drawn out by the honey and the two swirling together. Let it sit in the fridge, over the next few weeks the lemon will darken and the mixture will thicken. The peels and pulp will break down as well and leave behind a golden, lumpy marmalade that you can scoop into a cup and poor piping hot water over
