The numerous pots around the house with only dirt and withered leaves will tell you that I’m not that great with plants. Dried flowers are fragile, of course, but still beautiful. And they can’t die twice.
You can find dried flowers at craft stores, and sometimes at thrift shops, but of course the most fun way to get a collection is to go out and pick your own. You can even press them in a book and frame when dry.
Whether we’re able to care for living plants, or can only handle the dried variety, let’s bring the beauty of nature indoors to keep us a little warmer this winter!
A few months ago, I began searching online for greener and healthier alternatives to deodorant. I came across a few products sold online, but what caught my eye was this recipe on One Green Planet, calling for nothing more than baking soda, coconut oil, and corn starch.
I eye-balled the measurements (as usual) and came up with this wonderful jar of magic that I’ve been using since November.
It’s been holiday-season-shift-tested by this retail associate. After running around the sales floor all day, I smell, well, nothing.
This wonderful little jar has put my store-bought deodorant to shame, and I’ll never go back.
