Harvest Moon Bath Bombs

18 October 2021

I love the smells of fall.  Bath bombs are a great way to relax and take in the scents of the season.  These bath bombs do not contain any cornstarch, which is a common ingrident in many bath bombs.  I really hope you love these as much as we do.  

1 1/2 C Baking Soda

3/4 C Citric Acid

1/4 C Epsom salt

3 TBSP Melted Shea Butter

1 TBSP Sunflower Oil

30 drops of Plant therapy Harvest Moon Essential Oil Blend

Witch Hazel in a dropper bottle

Harvest Sugar Scrub

04 October 2021

Fall is here and it has been absolutely beautiful.  This sugar scrub is the perfect combination of all things fall from sunflowers to spices.  One thing that I really overlooked when going through my healing journey was the importance of non-toxic and clean body products.  I really thought that what the store sold was safe.  I was absolutely wrong.  This scrub is clean and safe and smells absolutely amazing.  I did add spices in ground form becuase I love the look that adds to the scrub.  

Harvest Sugar Scrub

2 1/2 C Sugar

1/2 tsp cardomon

I love this time of year.  The mornings are cooler and the leaves are starting to change color.   It seems like gardens are in their prime also.  We have been given so many cucumbers that we had to do something with them.  This cucumber salad is so tasty, in facy my son was literally licking his fingers with this one.  I hope you enjoy.  

2 medium cucumbers

1/2 C Paleo mayo

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

2 tsp maple sugar

Wash and slice your cucumbers into small discs and place in a bowl.  In a separate small bowl mix the paleo mayo, apple cider vinegar and maple sugar.  Then pour the mayo mixture over the cucumbers and mix it all together.  ENJOY!!
