• 1/2 cup almond or olive oil (can infuse with herbs first if desired) • 1/4 cup coconut oil
• 1/4 cup beeswax
• Optional: 1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
• Optional: 2 tablespoons Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter
• Optional: Essential Oils, Vanilla Extract or other natural extracts to suit your preference Note: All ingredients and many essential oils are available here.
How to Make Lotion:
1. Combine ingredients in a pint sized or larger glass jar. I have a mason jar that I keep just for making lotions and lotion bars, or you can even reuse a glass jar from pickles, olives or other foods. 2. Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and place over medium heat. 3. Put a lid on the jar loosely and place in the pan with the water. 4. As the water heats, the ingredients in the jar will start to melt. Shake or stir occasionally to incorporate. When all ingredients are completely melted, pour into whatever jar or tin you will use for storage. Small mason jars (8 ounce) are great for this. It will not pump well in a lotion pump! 5. Use as you would regular lotion. This has a longer shelf life than some homemade lotion recipes since all ingredients are already shelf stable and not water is added. Use within 6 months for best moisturizing benefits. Note: A litte goes a long way! This lotion is incredibly nourishing and is also great for diaper rash on baby, for eczema and for preventing stretch marks!
If you want an even easier solution, make these easy Lotion Bars! Only three ingredients, take less time to make and last longer.

Utilization of Discarded Chicken Leg Bones into Natural Glue - Chemistry Investigatory Project
This is my Chemistry investigatory project together with Eunice Castor, Isabel Lipa, Kimberly Sta.Ana and Klaudine Salvador. Please consider this as an example. DON'T COPY IT. :D
The investigatory project “Utilization of Discarded Chicken Leg bones into Natural Glue” came to fulfillment through the moral help, guidance and financial support of dear parents who are always there to guide the researchers. Thank you for the researchers’ chemistry teacher, Ms. Corazon Gracias who helped and encouraged the group to do this project and who gave the researchers some ideas on how they can do the project in a good and presentable manner. The researchers would also like to thank the Library staff who contributed to providing references needed in doing this project. The researchers are also grateful for the moral support and the inspiration their friends have given. Most of all, the researchers give their utmost appreciation and thanksgiving to the Great and Almighty God for the guidance as the researchers go on with the project, for the strength, for the love and especially for the knowledge and wisdom He has given. Without whom, this project would not be possible.
With the increasing need of the use of adhesives in school activities and works and as the prices of commercial glue continues to rise, the researchers set out to look for the possibility of using other materials that can be made into glue. The researchers happen to cross with a printed material that states that bones may be used as adhesives. With this, they looked for other evidences in the internet that such glue can be made and they set to make their own bone glue. The researchers first considered what kind of materials they will be using. Being a common household and commercial waste, discarded chicken leg bones were chosen. They studied and determined the feasibility of utilizing the discarded chicken leg bones into glue. After undergoing some processes, bone glue was successfully made by the researchers. They tested it on different types of materials such as papers of different thicknesses, folders, boards, and even on wood. So far, the bone glue was found...
