DIY Herbal Infused Oils

Herbal infused oils are the next big thing? Did you have any idea? No I’m kidding, I have no idea but it most definitely should be! Herbal oil is a great way to extract the amazing benefits of the plant. You can then use the oil to make other products like lip balm, lotions, sunscreens, or oil cleansing. Always make sure you research the herbs and oils you want to use to make sure they are safe for a product you want to make. For example, citrus can make your skin more photosensitive so if you make a orange oil you won’t want to use it in sunscreen. Comfrey is great for healing and reducing inflammation, but can be poisonous if ingested and is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Kombucha Peach and Blackberry Power Smoothie

Kombucha is fabulous! I was trying to figure out a way for my hubby to get probiotics since he can no longer eat dairy, and being the cheepo frugal gal that I am I didn’t feel like purchasing pills. One afternoon we went to a friends house and her husband dared us to try it! Turns out we liked it, so we went home with a “SCOBY” and started brewing our own kombucha!

Frugal Crafty Home Blog Hop #85…

This weekend has been… What’s the word… Entertaining? Friday morning I woke up with some food poisoning or something. Then on Friday night, when we got home from shopping Olive (the wiener mix) jumped out of the car and was face to face with a skunk and luckily didn’t get sprayed. Saturday morning Kaia (the husky) decided to pop the screen out, jump out the window, and chase a bunny. Of course I’m chasing her around like a crazy person yelling random foods she likes “cheese… treat… peanut butter.” and it wasn’t until she stopped to pee did I catch her. So yea it’s been quite the weekend! Hope yours was wonderful as well!

This week I shared…
