Pioneer Woman:

 Yesterday I made my own homemade and completely organic lotion.  I felt so domestic and slightly pioneerish. (<-----new word) 

Now let me just say, this was SUPER easy, took all of 15 minutes, and smells and feels divine!!!

I am kinda mad that I didn't take pictures of the process to show, but I was having so much fun that I didn't want to stop!  And what scent did I choose for my first attempt at lotion you ask???  Frankincense! How cool is that?  Where else can you find frankincense lotion with a little bit of eucalyptus?  Oh that's right...MY HOUSE!!  
YUM!  So fresh and invigorating!

True husband tried out this lotion after I made it and then cracked himself up by saying he smelled like the "three kings".  Get it?  Gold, frankincense, and myrrh.  He's such a comedian.

Homemade organic skin care is my new hobby.  I LOVE IT!! I will eventually venture into shampoo, body wash, and soaps.  I already make my own dishwasher and laundry detergent and this lotion was the next step into making my own things at home.

If you are a close friend or family member, you will probably be getting some homemade goodies for Christmas this year!
P.S. Please pay no attention to our little pharmacy in the background.  We take LOTS of supplements. =)

  1. Oh wow, you are quite the domestic diva! :) That's pretty neat. Zach keeps asking me when I'm going to turn into the "coupon queen". He said he wants 500 dollars worth of groceries for free. FAT CHANCE! That stuff is overwhelming when I already work 40 hours per week.
