After years of debating on whether or not we should do it, we finally decided to remodel our basement! We finally finished the walls, put a new floor in, added a living room, and we fulfilled our dream of having a bar inside the house.
Since there was going to be a lot of Sangria and Cosmos being consumed at the new bar, we realized we were going to have to put a bathroom in the basement. The only place left to do this was the room right next to the bar, and this got us thinking: If the bathroom was going to be directly next to the bar and living room, it would be most ideal to reduce, as much as possible, all odors that would be coming from the bathroom. So how could a household, like mine and everyone else’s, do that?
With Father’s Day rapidly approaching, we find ourselves with the same dilemma of always: What do we get them? Another neutral color shirt? A new razor identical to the last? These are the same mundane gifts we’ve been giving them all their life, and maybe this time we can spice it up a bit more than they’re use to.
If the man of the house is exhausted during the day, but has a hard time sleeping at night, creating two products will help them get through the day. One for the evening and one for their morning shower.
The Morning Shower Gel
Between fun days at the beach, evening barbecues with the family, and nighttime camping trips with friends, is there any wonder why we look forward to this season all year long?
But there’s something about summer that we definitely don’t look forward to — bugs. Mosquitoes and other insects thrive during the warm summer months. They’re not just annoying, though. They’re also capable of spreading infections and other dangerous diseases. If you really want to enjoy your summer, you’ve got to figure out a way to win the battle over bugs.
Luckily, the right blend of essential oils can be your best weapon!
Most people assume that you’ve got to slather yourself with stinky, chemical-laden sprays to truly fight off bugs. However, I’ve come up with a special bug repellent recipe that smells as great as it works. Best of all, when you make some of this special blend at home, you can rest easy knowing that everyone will be protected, without relying on toxic ingredients.
The only way to get softer, smoother hands is to exfoliate on a regular basis. That way, you can slough off dead cells and make it easier for your skin to soak up valuable nutrients. My Hand Care Scrub is gentle enough to be used once a day, but strong enough to get rid of all the build-up that’s making your hands rough.
Rub the scrub on your hands, and rinse. That’s it!
Whether you’ve been digging in the dirt or handling detergents and other harsh cleaners, your hands need a little extra TLC. This Hand Care Oil will give your hands some much-needed moisture.
I’m always getting letters from great Aromandina fans asking me for more DIY ideas. One thing that you all really seem to love is sugar scrubs. According to your letters, you can’t get enough of them! That’s why I’m sharing my recipe for homemade Cocoa Mint Sugar Scrub. The ingredients seem like they would make a decadent dessert — but in this case, they’re a yummy treat for your skin and your mood!
