8 Homemade Natural Gifts For The Holidays

I don’t know about you, but I love making my own products…especially when I know it’s free of chemicals and is in some cases cheaper (see homemade toothpaste, broth, milk, nut butters, etc).  And as much as I like to make it myself, it wasn’t until my crunchy mama friend, Melanie, suggested we get together and make some homemade gifts … Continue reading

Make Your Own Broth (Beef, Chicken, & Vegetable)
