Refreshing Rose Water Face Mist DIY Recipe! #NielsenMassey #Giveaway


When you hear the company Nielsen Massey, you most likely think of baking. Who hasn't used their vanillas or other flavor extracts at some point making cookies, cakes or other goodies? Our family uses their vanilla, almond and peppermint extracts all the time. However, we recently received a new (to us) product that you may not automatically think of baking with. Yes, Nielsen Massey also offers Rose Water, to be used in various dishes including pastries, cookies, and Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. We actually used this in two different ways - and enjoyed both - without even getting into baking with it. I did find an almond baklava recipe that incorporates rose water that sounds absolutely yummy, so that's on our to-try list as well!


My first experiment with rose water was to make a face mist. Rose water facial mists are so handy especially during the summer. Last week my sisters and I attended an outdoor Gospel concert, and this would have come in handy there. Even in Indiana, the heat was sweltering and very humid. A splash of rose water every once in a while would have been so cooling and refreshing! This is so easy to make, and I already have requests to make at least two other people their own batch. So without further ado, here is a simple three-ingredient recipe to make your own rose water face mist to help you cool off this summer!

Ingredients:
1/2 tablespoon Jojoba Oil (or almond oil)
1 teaspoon Rose Water
Water



Combine rose water and jojoba oil in a 2-ounce spray bottle, fill the rest of the way with water. Shake well and mist! Obviously the oil and water will separate, simply shake before each use. Technically the oil is optional, but I like the extra moisturizing it provides.


In case you're wondering what my other experiment with rose water was, I brewed up a cup of lemon tea and added a couple drops of rose water before drinking. It tasted delicious, and the smell is perfectly wonderful. I honestly wasn't sure it would be, but it has a similar flavor to Earl Grey tea, which I love. This will be the perfect winding-down evening beverage. I imagine it probably tastes good iced too, so I'll be trying that in the next few days.


Be sure to check out Nielsen Massey and their great line of vanillas and flavors for all your baking (and skin care!) needs!

One of our readers will receive a bottle of Rose Water from Nielsen Massey!!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
