MAKE NEW FRIENDS!

Natural Bug Spray

Natural Bug Spray

Met so many nice people on Saturday at Wegman’s – an all around happy day 🙂 Once again – we were all happy with the event – sold a few more books too!

One new friend, Sue, works for Nalgene and she felt sorry for my 15-year-old Nalgene bottle so she went out to her car and got me a new one – yay!  Another man bought my coffee as I was waiting in line to check out…so so nice.

Bryce and Kaitlin stopped by and we chatted about my book, exchange a few ideas and our Facebook/blog info – they experiment with cleaning product “recipes” and share them with the WWW! From their FB page: “Homesteadish is about learning to make more: food; cleaners; health and beauty products. Being mindful of ourselves, our families and resources. (And knowing sometimes, that’s easier said than done.”

In their honor – here is my latest recipe – adapted from a Women’s World magazine – natural bug spray that maybe I will use someday it is warm enough outside for bugs:

1 cup of Witch Hazel, 1 cup of water, 20 drops of lavender oil and 10 drops of eucalyptus oil. That’s it!  In a jar right now – will transfer to a spray bottle when it’s time. I took a quick peek at the ingredients on the Badger Balm brand bug repellent I got for my travels (Anti Bug Balm – in a solid stick form). Other essential oils there include citronella, cedar, lemongrass, rosemary and geranium – nice!

The Homesteadish latest is a perpetual dry sheet made with a sponge – check it out!  http://our-homesteadish.blogspot.com/

Hooked the up with the Sustainable Women here in ROC…love, love, love to connect people – I am a Tinker Toy.

Make new friends and keep the old….

Have a Nothing New Day! ~Kristin
