What I’ve Been Up To Lately . . .

Affiliate Disclosure | in DIY Beauty, Everything Else | by | with 32 Comments

Dear Mamas,

Contrary to not-so-widely circulated rumors I have not been kidnapped by a traveling band of karaoke crazy hippos (though that would be fun!). Things have just been a little quiet around here because, well, ya’ll got so excited about the lip/cheek tint photo last week I’m rushing this DIY beauty guide into publication ahead of schedule – it will be going on presale this weekend, YAY!  

Ya’ll, these recipes WORK. Like, REALLY WORK. No more limp, greasy hair because you’re trying to reduce your toxic load. My chemical-free shampoos leave hair glossy and touchable, the tooth whitener won’t force you to guzzle coal tar, fluoride, aspartame, aluminum and benzene every time you swallow¹, and I think you’re gonna love my  homemade lotion bars (using my favorite naughty ingredient, of course!),  solid perfume, shaving soap, hair dyes and more! I’m so excited to share this with you soon! Here’s a sneak peek!

Cinnamon & Clove Winter Scrub

Sweet Orange & Honey Shampoo

This one is a personal favorite. It smells oh-so-delightful and leaves hair soft, shiny and gunk-free!

And This Easy Homemade Bronzer

    For real, I can’t wait. I’d already decided I would write an ode to your deodorant recipe on my blog in honor of your release of this ebook- I guess I better get started! I make batches of the deodorant and give to friends and family bc it’s so great. Can’t wait to stop looking like I washed my hair in oil…

  26. Friday Happy Hour #7 - Oh Lardy! says:

    […] best for me.  Heather, aka Mommypotamus, has a new e-book for pre-sale this weekend!  It is a DIY beauty guide, sure to be full of great products you can make with great ingredients!  Maybe this will spur me […]

  27. abigail says:

    where exactly do we find your ebook for presale?

    • Heather says:

      Hi Abigail! I was planning to put it up for sale last weekend but decided to focus on supporting Prop 37 instead. It’s going on presale next Monday – I will be posting about and sharing a recipe!

  28. Zeffie says:

    So happy to see that last update. I’ve been checking your site several times a day to see if you have it for sale yet. MONDAY is going to be a GOOD DAY! Thank you for all you have done to support and promote prop 37. Now, if you could just tell me what I need to buy this weekend to make that orange shampoo as soon as I have that recipe :) hehe.

  29. Erin says:

    I love the idea of making my own products but what I usually find is they’ve never been tested on someone who has hard water (well water). Wondering if yours have been? Things with glycerin do awful things with hard water. I don’t know what your recipes contain

    • Heather says:

      Hi Erin! We have hard water but I don’t think it’s as hard as well water. I haven’t tested them on well water since I don’t have access, sorry!
