Personal Progress Page Update

Hello, Young Women!

I just completed posts about all the activities we've done as a group in the past 2 years that correspond to a Personal Progress experience. You can find a list of them on the Personal Progress tab, HERE. As we complete more activities for personal progress, we will include them on the Personal Progress tab.

Please take a few minutes to check out the Personal Progress tab to see which experiences you've started but not finished. If you click on each link, it will tell you what you've done and what you still need to do to finish that particular experience.

I'd like to challenge you all to try to finish all the ones you've started before school begins! You can do it! We'll be working on Personal Progress during Mutual in a few weeks, and we're going to check your progress at that time. Good luck!

Coming Soon! Begin preparing your 3 outfits using the techniques you've learned to modify clothing to be more modest:  1) A dressy outfit; 2) A school outfit; 3) An active wear outfit

    Come seek your treasure at Rainbow Creek.
    Your experience this year at camp will begin with an overnight backpacking trip. We will begin our trip at 4 p.m. sharp, July 11, 2011. You should plan to arrive at camp at 3:30 p.m. to stow your gear that you won’t need for backpacking and be at the gate with your pack at 4 p.m. We will be hiking from camp to a site along Rainbow Creek. Following is a list of gear to bring as suggested in the camp manual, p. 29.

    Fourth Year Backpacking List

    Required backpack 1/5 to 1/4 of body weight.

    1. trowel
    2. tarp or tent/2 persons
    3. sleeping bag and pad
    4. lightweight stove and fuel
    5. lightweight eating utensils or mess kit
    6. small flashlight and extra batteries
    7. compass

    Natural Spa Day Recipes

    Spa Day was so much fun this week! Below are the recipes that the fabulous Sister Davis found for us. Remember to start with clean skin!

    BASIL ACNE TONIC:  2 to 3 teaspoons dried basil leaves or a large handful of fresh leaves, 1 C. boiling water

    Steep basil leaves in water for 10 to 20 minutes. Cool, then apply to face with a white cotton ball.   Basil is known for its soothing and toning qualities. Keep tonic refrigerated.  Recommended shelf life:  90 days.
    STRIP IT OFF! PORE CLEANING STRIPS1 tablespoon Knox unflavored gelatin, 1-1/2 tablespoons milk

    This recipe makes a pore cleaning "strip" which woks similarly to those sold in drugstores. Mix two ingredients and microwave for 10 seconds to slightly warm. Using a clean cosmetic brush, apply to nose and chin area. Avoid delicate eye area.  Rinse brush immediately. Allow mixture on nose and chin to dry for 10-15 minutes. Mixture will dry quite stiff and form a "stiff film."  Peel off the film and stare at all the little porcupine quills that used to be in your nose pores!

    LEMON FACIAL MASK2 tablespoons sour cream, 1 teaspoon finely ground oatmeal, 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, 1 drop lemon essential oil, cucumber slices (optional)

    Mix the sour cream, oatmeal, lemon juice and essential together in a bowl. To use, massage over clean face and neck skin and the rest for 10 minutes (with cucumber slices if you have them) over your eyes. Rinse well with warm water and follow with toner and moisturizer. Always use Lemon Facial Mask immediately for best results -- the lemon juice will cause the sour cream to curdle if it is not used quickly.

    APPLE HONEY FACIAL MASK:  1 medium size apple (grated), 5 tablespoons of honey

    Mix the grated apple and mix with honey to make a mask. Smooth over skin then let sit for 10 minutes, rinse off with cool water.

    STRAWBERRY HAND AND FOOT EXFOLIANT:  8-10 Strawberries, 2 tablespoons Apricot Oil (you may substitute olive oil), 1 teaspoon of coarse salt, such as Kosher Salt or Sea Salt (note: we used a LOT more salt)

    Mix together all ingredients into a paste, massage into hands and feet, rinse, and pat dry. Strawberries have a purpose here; they contain a natural fruit acid which aids exfoliation.

    BEACH SAND FOOT SCRUB:  2 Tablespoons Canola oil, 2 Tablespoons dry beach sand, 3-5 drops rosemary oil (do not use if pregnant)

    The next time you decide to spend the day at the beach, take advantage of the "on location foot treatment."  Brazilians, particularly, are known for scrubbing their entire bodies, particularly the feet, deep into the sand while they relax on the beach.When going to the beach, take a small vial of ingredients with you:  2 tablespoons of canola oil (or use your suntan oil!), and, a small vial of rosemary oil -- or premix and take one vial.

    Once at the beach, use an empty container (a soda cup is fine) to mix the ingredients together. Mix into a paste.  Massage sand scrub onto feet (and elbows), concentrating especially on problem areas.  Rinse off in the foamy waves, pat dry with your beach towel.

    AVOCADO HAND & FOOT TREATMENT:  1/4 to 1/2 mashed fresh avocado, 1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon rice bran, and 10 drops of oil of evening primrose

    Mix ingredients then gently massage this treatment onto your hands and feet, and leave in place for 20 minutes. Rinse. This natural treatment will revive your dry, wrinkled and rough hands, feet, elbows and knees. The avocado and egg nourish the skin with proteins and oils; the rice bran exfoliates dead skin cells; the oil of evening primrose contains precious gamma linolenic acids, essential for healthy hair, skin and nails.  Consider purchasing a small jar of Oil of Evening Primrose capsules from your health food store. Open one, and have the ingredient for this recipe.

    NAIL BRIGHTENER:  1 denture tablet, 1 cup warm water, 1-2 drops essential oil

    Saturate one denture tablet with a few drops of essential oil of your choice.  Drop the tablet into a small bowl of warm water.  Soak fingertips 10 minutes. Do not keep mixture.  Discard after use.

    KATHY'S PEPPERMINT LIP SCRUB:  One Pot for storage, 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon caster sugar, Peppermint oil, Almond Oil/Vitamin E oil, Glass Ramekin (for mixing)

    Pour the sugar into the ramekin and then add the oils depending how you want the consistency of the lip scrub. I used about a quarter of a tsp of each oil as I like to add the liquid so there is enough flavor and enough liquid for it to hold together, but not so the solution is runny.  A variant of this scrub is that it can be used with lemon oil as well, or generally any other COOKING oil you like the taste of! To use the scrub dab a small amount onto lips and rub together to gently exfoliate. You can then lick off the scrub or wipe off with a cloth.  This product can be stored at room temperature.

    Tip:  If you have Vitamin E capsules, poke one with a pin and squeeze the oil into your recipe.

    LEMON LIP GLOSS1 tsp Honey, 1 T Vitamin E Oil, 1 tsp. of Aloe Vera, 2 tsp of grated beeswax, 1 T pure almond extract, 6 Drops of Lemon Essential Oil  

    Melt beeswax, remove from heat and while constantly stirring add honey, aloe vera, almond extract, and Vitamin E. Add the lemon essential oil last.  Store in a clean pot, preferably in the refrigerator.

    Fundraiser Recipes

    Quick Fudge- 3 cups chocolate chips, 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, dash of salt

    Heat milk in a saucepan on medium heat. Add chocolate chips and salt. Cook on medium-low heat stirring constantly until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. The mixture should turn glossy and begin to pull away from the sides of the pan as you stir when ready.  Remove from heat, add vanilla, and stir till well mixed. Pour into lightly greased square pan (8"x8") and cool completely before cutting.

    Chocolate Covered Peanut Clusters- 1/2 package chocolate almond bark, 2 1/2 cups roasted peanuts
