DIY Solid Perfume

I fell in love with the idea of making a solid perfume in a locket over the winter when I saw a number of DIY examples as I was browsing the interwebs reading blog posts and shopping on Etsy. After seeing all of the fun, I knew that I would have to give it a try.

I scoured eBay for lockets. While waiting to be the winning bidder, I found a recipe that sounded lovely and used ingredients that I already had. My recipe is inspired by this one at Mountain Rose Herbs {HERE}.

Kill Weeds *Naturally*

This week we get to celebrate Earth Day! I definitely believe that EVERY Day is Earth Day. But it is nice to recognize it for one special day.

To celebrate, I want to give you my recipe for killing weeds using things you likely have in your kitchen. Yes, really! And you know me, I'm only sharing it with you because it REALLY WORKS (okay, it works for me, there is a chance it won't work on your pesky weeds). I took pictures to prove it!

There are days where we could all use a little help relaxing. The grind of life, work, and multiple commitments can catch up with us in no time. Finding a few minutes to unwind and relax can be tough. Whatever the case, it seems as though taking time for ourselves gets put on the back burner. The reality is our needs to be a priority! It is high time we all learn to take pause and...R E L A X! 

With Tax Day coming right up, some of us may be up against a time crunch for submission. This is the perfect opportunity to stop and take a little time to slow down. This year schedule in some extra and much needed relaxation!

Where should you start? Great questions and that is where our essential oils,come in! Just like you, I collect essential oil blends and recipes. I scrapbook them in my Smashbooks and refer to them often. To help us all relax a little bit more, I pulled out my books to see what I could find.
