All-purpose

These two items are in my "things I can't live without" list. I always have one or the other in my purse. They're both so versatile, and really...you can use them anywhere (lips, hands, knees and elbows... anywhere!). The kids and I suffer from eczema during winter, and these babies are such life savers.
only two ingredients: extra virgin olive oil and beeswax


really a glorified petroleum jelly, but much much better!


Do you guys have all-purpose item you can't live without? Do tell!

P.S.
 Because the Lenten season started yesterday, I'm supposed to give up something for 40 days (until Easter), and this year, I've decided it will be chocolate. I thought I'd announce it here so I'll actually be forced to do it this time...wish me luck:P

  11. Good luck with Lent! I gave up chocolate 3 years ago during Lent and it was hard. It is nice to see other people giving up something for Lent. This year, instead of giving up something, I decided to make one person happy everyday... for 40 days. If I like this resolution, I will stick to it for longer.

    We have a local produc here called Luca's paw paw ointment that I love - it's like the natural version of petroleum jelly it heals and protects. :) Can't live without it!
