Suzanne

A bright light in the world and my dear friend, Suzanne Krull, died recently. As I write that sentence I can’t believe it’s true.

Ooooh! Bubble bath! I haven’t taken a bath in ages but when I came across this simple recipe, I had to try it out. This bubble bath is moisturizing and smells delicious. My skin was so smooth and my husband went crazy over the smell. RAWR! This would be a really nice and easy DIY gift for a birthday or a housewarming party. I know that I could have used this when we recently moved…I would have enjoyed some silky smooth bubble bath and a nice, relaxing soak in the tub.

Ingredients:
1 cup sweet almond oil or light olive oil
1/2 cup organic honey Read More
