Please comment below and let me know because I still haven’t got it sorted out. I tried following the tutorial listed here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXotH…

Ep 86 – Ali’s Staycation Solid Lotion Tutorial

Mike had to go to Denver for a few days to do Denver things, and left Ali home alone to do those things that Ali won’t do while Mike is around
#solidlotion #tutorial #DIY #archedcabin #homestead

Recipe:
Makes 9 solid lotions if you’re using 2 oz tins.
Just under 1 cup of beeswax. Leave about 1/4″ from the top. Use less if you’d like it a little softer
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons of evening primrose oil or any other supplemental oil you’d like (optional)
2 tablespoons vitamin e oil (optional)
2 tablespoons fragrance oil. I used Nag Champa in this batch.**** If using essential oils, I would use a capful at the most. They are potent!****


Melt your beeswax & coconut oil in a jar or pyrex measuring glass in a bath of hot water, and add in your olive oil to heat and blend. Once all the oils are melted, remove from heat and add the optional oils and fragrance oil. Blend well with a popsicle stick, and pour into your 2 oz tins. Allow to cool.

Ep 84 If a tree falls in the woods, does anyone hear it?

I got my revenge on the log that smashed my toe. More weather delays, and preparing for winter on the homestead.
One of the standing dead down by our gate blew over. The tree was easily 70′ long. Had to get it out of the way so we could go about our day.
Have a teenager who is a bit nervous about learning to drive? I got mine going on the ATV to take some of the fear out of operating a car or truck. #archedcabin #firewood #chainsaw #husqvarna

The build is fast approaching, and I’m going to need to know how to weld for a small portion of it. I’m just experimenting at this point and trying to sort out how it all works!

Ep 71 – Adding Plants to the Memorial Garden. Happy Birthday, Mom.

More work on the inexpensive memorial garden. It would have been my mom’s 75th birthday this year. We lost her19 years ago, and have still always celebrated her birthday. This year, I wanted to be sure to get the plants into the ground because she loved her summer flowers.
