MIMM #7 and My Relaxing Hobby


When life becomes hectic we all need to find ways to relax.  Marvelous Chamber of Commerce weather this weekend allowed me to get in some runs which always helps me relax. Something else I find relaxing, is making natural body care and fragrance products.  What I like most about this hobby is the creative process and making something that is uniquely mine and free of chemicals that may cause allergic reactions. Marvelous!


 Mother’s Day is coming and they make Marvelous gifts.  A few years ago I took a short course on soap and lotion making from a local candle and soap making supply company and learned enough to make my very own lotions and potions. You can even make facial cleansers and moisturizer.   The company was sold and the new one doesn’t offer classes, but there a plenty of online sites that offer helpful information.

Here’s a YouTube channel I find very helpful, and below you will find her website, Stephanie K Naturals.
