DIY Dish Soap That Actually WORKS - It’s Simple, No Melting and No Waiting!

dish soap2

This post has been a LONG time coming. Over a year ago, I wrote a post on making your own dish soap, but even that recipe was never one that I found to work too well. I have been trying to find a recipe for dish soap that ACTUALLY worked, for at least a year now. I have tried just about every single diy all-natural “crunchy” soap recipe that I could find!

Before There Was Peace Pits - DIY All-Natural Aluminum Free Deodorant Paste


With all of the information out there now about the extremely damaging effects of aluminum in our deodorants, many people are changing over from their antiperspirants to more natural deodorants.

It’s true, it works better than any of the other natural deodorants that I have tried. Peace Pits is so effective it beats the stink ALL DAY LONG! I can totally understand why you want my recipe.  Read more »

I admit, some vegan dishes can be really crazy experiences for the non-vegan pallete, but not my vegan pancakes.

It is HOT outside! August has finally arrived here in the great state of Texas, and it hasn’t spared us from the normal excessive heat that we usually experience down here. This year, to combat the heat, I have made up a refreshing body spray using water, witch hazel, and peppermint essential oil!

After making Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats, I began to notice Sirius (our 50+ lbs. dog that thinks he is Syfy’s   brother) began to act very bored with the super expensive dog kibble I was feeding him. Every morning and every evening he would slump over to his food dish and sniff at the same old boring kibble and then walk away. What happened to my voracious eater? I know for a fact that he loves to eat food, Read more »
