This is my little space where I write about crafting and homeschooling with my kids while still in our pajamas. I have four beautiful kiddos (one home from Ethiopia). It is my passion to encourage others to celebrate their creativity while glorifying The Ultimate Creator.
"Potions" and "concoctions" -aren't those just fun words? They make me want to brew something. So in the spirit of homemade, here's a Pajama Mama potion-which is very easy and potentially very money saving-somewhere in the half-a-hundred-dollar-bill-a-year range.
1 cup sugar
half a lemon for the juice
1/4 cup honey
A drizzle of molasses
Cornstarch (to powder with for tautness)
Something to spread the mixture with like a tongue depressor, popsicle stick or spatula.
Cotton fabric cut into strips
Over low-heat, mix the lemon, sugar, and honey until it bubbles into a smooth consistency. Allow it to cool a bit. I still like my potion on the warm side.
To use, make sure your brows, or legs or where ever you wish to place it is clean and dry. Then dust area with cornstarch, which I've read draws out oil. Spread a thin layer. Cover with a strip of fabric, and rubbing the strip the opposite way of hair growth, about 3 times. Hold your skin taut with one hand and with the other, grab the fabric end and pull it off very quickly against the direction of the hair growth.
This stores well, just reheat if it gets too hard to spread.
