    Almond oil has a wide range of benefits that really surprised me.  I found an excellent article that goes into everything you want to know about almond oil.

    DIY Lavender Lotion Bars






    I must admit that I had not heard of lotion bars until today, but they sound like a great idea!

    How convenient to have a bar of lotion . . . love it and will be trying it as soon as I get an order together for supplies to make these lotion bars and bars of soap/shampoo. I've got a new addiction of artisan soap that is quickly becoming very expensive.

    Jillee at One Good Thing From Jillee has come up with a great DIY recipe that is quick and easy for these lotion bars.
