Homemade Deodorant

Yesterday I took my hand at making homemade deodorant. My intrest was peaked as another blogger talked about making her own. She was of a lot of help to me as where to look so I googled it and so the search was on. I found one simalir to what she said she used. So today is day two of using it. I'm happy to report so far I love it. The best part it is safe for my 11 year old daughter to use. Also with store deodorant I itched bad with this so far I don't. I will tell you though it is not the same consestiency as store deodorant but it is still nice to use. I will share the recipe it is as follows:
1/4 cup baking soda and corn starch
2 tablespoons coconut oil
whatever you would like to use as a scent.
mix all together until incorparated then pack in an old deodorant container or in a dish and just rub on with fingers. Have a great day! Rebekah

I was asked by Melodie to post about felting soap. So what I'm going to do is post a link that will tell you step by step how to do it and color pictures. It is very fun my daughter who is 11 has done most of ours. Beware though it does take practice so don't get frustrated just keep trying. If it is not perfect like the pictures believe me it still washes fine. I will tell you one thing I have noticed is when you get ready to use it letting it soak in water for a few minutes helps before you use it.Here is the link Hope this helps Melodie. Have a great day everyone. Rebekah

Becky Kelley - Where's the Line to See Jesus - OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO


Hello Everyone hope you are having a great Sunday. Thought I would post pictures of my chocolate peppermint soap. Yesterday I tried my hand at hot process soap making. As you can see it worked great. I loved doing it and will for sure do it again. The soap smells just like a piece of mint chocolate. The best part is it is ready to use now. Hope everyone has a great Sunday. Rebekah

I'm needing a good recipe for homemade eggnog. I would like one someone has tried and knows that it is good. I'm not wanting to have to do alot of experimenting with this. My quest for a recipe is because my husband loves eggnog. So at Christmas time I always buy it for him but when I went to walmart and had to pay $3.00 for a quart I decided I have to learn how to make it. Thanks Rebekah

Anuual cookie bake and tea.

Well Friday was our annual cookie baking and Christmas caroling with the homeschool group. We made 14 plates and were able to hand them all out. It was a great night and alot of people were blessed by our singing. Now I suppose you are wondering what tea has to do with all of this. After cookie baking and lunch the moms sat down to have tea well the children played outside. This is the tea I had and it is wonderful. You have got to try it. It has a strong cinnamon taste and it is just one of those teas that actually taste good. Hope everyone has a great Sunday. From our farm to you. Rebekah
