London Fog Bath Salts

I’m feeling really tired and overwhelmed these days. I don’t know if it’s because it’s winter or what, but I feel like I’m running around like mad, barely managing to keep on top of my to-do list. It feels like everything is piling up and all I want to do is turn off my phone and watch Netflix in bed. I did a dumb yesterday; I was filming videos, so I temporarily turned off the furnace so it wouldn’t be whirring and groaning in the background audio. Then I went out for the night and forgot to turn it back on, and when I got back it was 8°C (46°F) in the house. Brr. I remember making a mental note to turn it back on before leaving, but I clearly didn’t, and boy did I feel like a dolt when I waltzed inside and wondered why it didn’t feel as warm as it should. Duh. And ugh. I spent the rest of the day hanging out in my jacket and toque and feeling like a proper idiot. Anyhow, that led to the need for these London Fog bath salts—so I could take a nice hot bath and crawl into my pre-heated bed and hopefully fall asleep without feeling like I was winter camping.

Fizzy Foaming Face Scrub

Today’s rather fun Fizzy Foaming Face Scrub comes from a recipe request Kaylee sent in. She’d found a facial scrub that fizzed up like a bath bomb when it got wet, as well as lathered up into a lovely foaming scrub that left your skin feeling wonderfully clean and exfoliated. The ingredients were simple enough, and I loved the idea of some fizz with my facial scrubbing, so here we are—Foaming Fizzy Facial Scrub!

Winter Wonderland Bath Bombs

These pretty blue nuggets of fizzy, pine-scented goodness are the perfect accompaniment to a hot bath on a cold winter day. They’ll tumble in the bath water, fizzing away and releasing a fresh, wintery scent blend of pine, fir, and vanilla along with skin-softening ingredients like Epsom salts and baking soda. These Winter Wonderland Bath Bombs are also the last Winter Wonderland recipe of the season as we come close to wrapping up my Holiday gift idea recipes!

Sunshine Vegan Deodorant

This lovely sunshine vegan deodorant is creamy, smells like sunshine, and kicks stink’s butt like nobody’s business. It’s pretty cool. It’s also easy to make, delightfully inexpensive, and all natural. BAM.

Peppermint Tooth Powder

I’ve had quite a few requests for a tooth powder recipe (Megan, Stefanie, Christina, Cristina, and Kristen—thanks!). Some referenced a particular store bought product, while others just wanted my take on natural tooth care. This Peppermint Tooth Powder is what I came up with.

I actually devised this before heading to Costa Rica for a month earlier this year. I was trying to fly carry-on only, and one of the best ways to do that is to drop all liquids from your bag. This inspired both my powdered acidic hair rinse and this tooth powder.
