Sir Squish-a-Lot has decided that if he holds onto some portion of me at all times there is no way I can sneak off to work today. While in theory he is correct, in practice this also means I can't sneak off to places like the bathroom either. Good thing I have the day off. And a really strong bladder.
I did come to an interesting conclusion today though.
While staring at all the many and varied choices in the body wash/ skin care aisle at our local Tarjay I realized that none of it was exactly what I wanted. Not a single one caught my attention or enticed me in any way. However, a little light in my head had gone off about making my own. It is really uber easy, and fairly inexpensive. And best of all I can have exactly what I want!! No froo froo flowery smells. No random weird chemical ingriedients that change colors. This is my new goal.... And with so many of you out there who have great recipes I shall be overmarketed plastic bottle free in no time!
Here's a recipe from essortment.com I plan on trying out as soon as I can! :
Strawberry-Lemon Shower Gel
1/2 tablespoon of unscented natural liquid soap
3 large frozen strawberries
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of aloe Vera gel
6 to 8 drops of lemon essential oil
5 drops of strawberry fragrance oil
Thaw fruit and puree in blender or food processor. Pour into a bowl and add salt. Stir, and then add aloe Vera gel, liquid soap, and essential oil. Mix well. Use immediately.
