Making your own body products is fun and allows you to control the ingredients used. They also make wonderful gifts. This is a guide about homemade body products.
Someone just requested a recipe for homemade body mist so I posted my recipe for her and thought, "Deeli, enter it in to the tip contest too!".
Source: Have had the recipe for so long that I can't remember where it came from.

To make homemade body lotion, you need 1 bottle each:
In a blender or food processor, blend together the ivy leaves and distilled water on high speed for 1 minute. Strain this green ivy water in to a clean jar and discard the bits of leaves.
Combine all ingredients into a sterilized glass jar and store for 1 week-shaking occasionally. Strain and pour into an airtight bottle for use.
