DIY Orange Clove Gardener’s Soap

The scents combine deliciously and leave your hands clean, lightly exfoliated, and moisturized. Homemade soap is much simpler to make than you might think, and I prefer it as you can customize scents, colors, and shapes to suit you or as a gift for a loved one.

Last year I didn’t seal the paint stick plant markers I made and most of them didn’t make it  through the… [Read More]
