DIY Sugar Scrub

Making your own sugar scrub is so easy and cost effective. Commercial sugar scrubs can cost anywhere from $10 to $36 for the same amount that we’ll be making today. I estimate that the supplies used to make enough to fill a 8 oz jar scrub costs about $3, that’s at least a $7 savings!

Make Raw Vanilla Ice Cream

Rene and I recently bought an ice cream maker, and we’ve been so excited about it.  Part of the reason we bought the machine was so we can determine exactly what goes into the ice cream we eat, but also so we can make pastured raw ice cream, which isn’t just really good tasting, but…
