Shampoo Bar Soap Recipe I begin my journey into soap making almost 2 years ago. It all started when I read this post and began to understand how easy and cost-effective making my own really is! I am by no means a soap making expert. I usually stick to pretty basic recipes and I haven’t experimented much with scents or creative designs. Hot processed soap is the way to go for me. Cold processed takes a long time to cure and I’m just to impatient for that! Determine Your Method There are so many recipes and soap-making methods out there. I would also recommend borrowing a few of these books from the library if you really find yourself wanting to know more: Handcrafted Soap by Dolores BooneThe Soapmaker’s Companion by Susan Miller CavitchThe Natural Soap Book by Susan Miller Cavitch Why shampoo bar soap and not just baking soda? What a great question! I have long hair and I was so frustrated. I really didn’t want to be dependent on store-bought shampoo! So I set out to create a solution! Gather The Supplies Alright! Lye

Elderberry Gummies with Ginger and Turmeric As much as most of us would like to deny it, cold and flu season is around the corner. I’m a firm believer that a clean diet, a little stress management, and some common sense (wash your hands!!) can go a long way towards avoiding those bugs. But, sometimes even those steps are not enough to keep one from catching a cold. That’s when a little extra help can come in handy. Some of our favorite treats are homemade gummy snacks. Speaking of upset stomachs – ginger is my go-to for nausea. Turmeric is a relatively new love of mine. Turmeric contains curcumin, which gives turmeric it’s beautiful golden yellow color. Elderberries are also pretty new to my kitchen. Finally, honey!
