JBHomemade offers natural, botanical skincare and the gentle hair removal method called sugaring. The use of Nature's Bounty to provide a natural lifestyle, skin care and health has been around for centuries. Our organic gardens thrive with homegrown flowers, herbs and vegetables. In this second chapter of my life, I share a commitment with my family to live a clean, natural,  self-sustaining, homesteading lifestyle here in TN.
The concept of Clean, natural living inspires each of my homemade products.

There are two different methods to sugaring.
It is a personal preference about which one
you choose to embark on.
Sugaring:
 
  • Not as painful as waxing.
  • The sugar seeps into pores ensuring a smooth extraction.
  • You don't experience the ingrowns and razor burn associated with shaving.
  • Eco- friendly
  • Earth safe and friendly
  • Skin friendly
The most common question that is asked me about sugaring gel/wax?
"Is it just like waxing in a salon?"
Always exfoliate 2 days before sugaring.
Regular exfoliation after sugaring is recommended to keep your skin as smooth as possible in between sugaring.
Results the first time you sugar should last up to two weeks depending on how fast your hair grows.
Even after the first sugaring, you should see a noticeable difference in the new growth: ie thinner, finer, sparser.
Well...yes and no. 
There are similarities, yes. But that's where it ends. 
There are so many DIFFERENCES that I cannot say that sugaring is "just like waxing in a salon". 
Sugaring Gel is a lot like thick honey.
 
  • ​​Organic Raw Sugar, Lemons, a smidgen of water.
  • Great when your hairs are already thin from previous waxing or natural.
  • You can still use sugaring paste as well.
 
The Sugaring Gel (adapted through history) method of sugaring:
 
  • Spread a thin layer on the desired area in the SAME direction of hair growth.
  • Tip: Smaller the area, smaller amount.
  • Set your applicator down and grab a thick denim strip.
  • Apply it on top of the thin layer of sugar, rub (applying friction and transferring heat).
  • Grab the end of the denim and remove in the OPPOSITE direction of hair growth. Remember to stay parallel to the skin. Do not pull up.
  • Some people prefer applying in the opposite direction and removing in the same direction. (Note: I do not recommend this method. Hairs are more likely to break off rather than removed completely.)
