Hot Process Soap – *Ready to use quickly!* – Green Marble (Citrusy Bergamot)

When I recently noticed my family was running low on our homemade soap, I knew hot process was the way to go. Why? It’s easy to make (as long as you don’t mind dedicating a slow cooker to soap making–you might pick one up secondhand, if so). It’s also ready to use much sooner than […]

Saving the Green: Earth-wise, Budget-friendly Choices

Green is one of my favorite colors. I like it in terms of growing, planty things, and I like it in terms of cash. Nope, I’m not materialistic, but I am a realist (as much as reality requires, anyway). Since nature and I are already on pretty good terms and because I’m trying to form […]

Homemade Happenings…with Aroma Foundry Essential Oils

Homemade Happenings…with Aroma Foundry Essential Oils

I recently received an invitation to sample some essential oils from Aroma Foundry, so of course I immediately broke into my mad scientist laugh and began plotting world domination planning what I would do with them. *Here* (<- click) is an accurate portrayal of my reaction. No lie. 😉 (Anyone who loves essential oils will completely understand.) […]

What You Wish For

What You Wish For

There are times in my house–quiet times–when you wouldn’t know we had any pets at all…unless you looked around, that is. Dogs seem to be dozing all over the place (often with our lone cat somewhere in their midst). Don’t even get me started on the other evidence: fur. At other times, even if you […]

Some Essential Oil Essentials

Some Essential Oil Essentials

Essential oils. You’ve heard of them, right? They’re being used all over the place, these days. Yet, they’re not always being used safely. Recently, Aroma Foundry invited me to sample some of their essential oils and share my thoughts. I’m really looking forward to trying them out (they smell absolutely delicious!), but I thought that even […]

Happy (Belated) Beltane!

Happy (Belated) Beltane!

Well, spring was here…and gone…and here…and…so I’ve decided it’s all right that I’m a little late with my Beltane wishes, which should have happened around the first of May. Beltane is one of a number of seasonal celebrations based on ancient Celtic festivals (and often practiced by modern pagans–and others, like me). The Celtic festivals centered […]

Liquid Gold–My Favorite Golden Milk Recipe

Liquid Gold–My Favorite Golden Milk Recipe

Turmeric has apparently been used medicinally for about 4,000 years…so you might say I’m hopping onto the turmeric bandwagon a little late. It’s all right if you are, too, though. There’s plenty of room! Previously, I’ve taken turmeric as a supplement and even added it to my homemade cosmetics for a touch of warm color, […]

Parenting with More…of Less

Generation after generation, parents have set out to give their kids more than they had. So why do I feel the constant desire to give my kids less? On the surface, it might sound like a simple case of bad parenting, and I definitely have had (and will have) my share of parenting fails. I […]

A Wealth of Weeds

Have you heard the one about the weird lady who walks around her yard, staring at the ground? Hey, wait a minute. That’s me. As if I didn’t already have my share of quirk, this is my new favorite hobby–except I’m not staring at the ground, I’m staring at lawn weeds. Much more normal, you […]
