Sunshine to Snow
However, the white stuff returned. I just want to dial up Mother Nature and put in my order. If it was that easy, right?
At least the animals can go about their business and not freeze their paws.
I'm out of extra foaming soap dispensers, so our homemade shampoo went in an old soap pump for now. It will be runny this way, but it still does a nice job (castile soap, water, essential oils, and jojoba oil).
update: I've added the link to making it. I make the "stimulate" recipe with peppermint and tea tree oil. I put mine in a regular pump, only because I do not have any other (foaming or flip cap) pump on hand right now. There is another recipe I plan to experiment with and compare it to this one, so stay tuned for that too.
That my friends (shampoo making) was the highlight of the day. Sad right? I have nothing exciting to share today either. Other than the fact I have a mammoth headache this morning.
