Homemade Products To Save Money

Save money and have a superior product by making your own products at home. Here are three of my favorite homemade products.

Onion Soup Mix
1/3 cup dry onion flakes
 8 beef bouillon cubes or 8 tsp.
 2 - 3 tsp. onion powder

You can also add 1/2 tsp celery salt and/or 1/2 tsp garlic powder.
Mix together and store in a jar or a baggie for up to six months.
Makes about 18 tablespoons. (5 tablespoons of this mix is equal to 1 pre-packaged mix).

Hot Chocolate Mix
3 c. non-fat dry milk powder
1/2 c. cocoa
1 c. sugar

Thoroughly mix all ingredients (a fork works well) and store in jar or baggie for up to three months. To use, add 4 tablespoons mix per 1 cup hot milk.

Mosquito Repellent (also repels flies)
15 drops lavender essential oil
3 - 4 tbsp vanilla extract (be sure to use pure vanilla extract. Check the label to make sure they haven't added corn syrup)
4 tbsp lemon juice

Pour all ingredients into spray bottle, add about 8 oz water. Shake before each use.
