DIY Personal care

04/09/2017 - 4 Comments - Recipes | Baking soda, Cleaning


I've always been fond of foods, medicine and personal care which are simple and minimally processed. Like preparing my own bread, yogurt, using propolis to heal minor cuts and scratches, and moisturizing my hair with aloe vera.
But once, around 2013, I got really pissed about hair frizz and started searching online for some product that would help me fix my curls.
In the search, the so called "no poo" showed up: the habit of washing hair without shampoo. It appeared again and again as a solution for beatiful hair. In spite of the skepticism, I gave it a try. And never went back.

Since then, my bathroom counter has less and less packages.
My skin, hair, teeth - personal care in general - are doing fine. Actually, now and then someone comments I smell nice ;) In a sum, here I share what we could call a "beauty routine" (and the corresponding recipes).


Stencil is a very accessible technique used for decoration which renders beautiful results. It delivers your message in walls, t-shirts, and even cakes.
Basically, we cut out a surface, and the parts taken out of the paper form the drawing that will be printed. I think the picture below will help.

I really enjoy playing around with stencil, so I experiment with detailed images, such as the Nacho Libre below. Anyway, I have also made cakes embellished with only a couple of hearts and find it beautiful. Since Rebeca asked me, I have prepared this post to explain how to make stencils.


Morning, brains starting to work (more or less).
Body still warm from the bed, thoughts still delightfully empty, little by little reminding the day’s schedule, if I need to take the umbrella, which clothes to wear.
Chop some fruits, make coffee, heat the milk for the first meal. In the hurry, high heat.

If it’s cow’s milk, it might spill foam allover the stove and there goes the peace of mind.
If it’s vegetable milk, the unpleasant surprise might be something else: that the milk curdles over high heat, you know? It becomes a watery thing with some lumps, not attractive at all.

How to deal with this?
