Happy New Year!


 









Happy New Year! I hope everyone is feeling inspired and anew! Whatever that is for you! I wish 2016 to be a year of trusting the Universe for everyone! This read is a good start ;)
Over the course of the weekend, I made New Years gifts for friends....herb bundles~fire-starters, caramel sauce, & wrapped jars of summertime's whiskey soaked cherries and peaches/my style muse these days..."If my Grandpa would have worn it, I'll wear it"/coconut coffee facial scrub/with a splash of cream {Yay! Looking forward to trading goods this Spring with my favorite potter who made my mug! The kind of pottery I've always had on the tip of my tongue and in the back of my mind.....he creates it! Feels so good to support his work!}

Ending with some good links and the coconut coffee facial scrub recipe!
Be well!

I saved my coffee grounds for a couple of mornings which equaled approximately 1 cup. Add a big dollop of coconut oil, a couple twists of honey, and several drops of tea tree oil. You can use any essential oil you prefer. Eucalyptus is refreshing, too! Be careful around the eye area as tea tree oil can easily aggravate. Use as a facial cleanser and/or body scrub. Enjoy!
