I've been getting a little obsessed with the recipes in the latest emailorder from Angry Chicken. So far, I've made my own lip balm, tea, face cleaner, face oil, and baby bottom spray. I'm also working darn hard to re-use old bottles for everything I make rather than succumb to the temptation to buy a new shiny bottle and make it look perfect. I'm taking notes, too, about how much it all costs (meaning the oils, castile soap, essential oils and what not) versus how much I save by not purchasing something from the store. I won't divulge the numbers just yet, as I'm still on the depressing side of the ledger. But, it feels good to know exactly what goes into everything I use.
