Guest Post: Chery’s DIY Bath Bombs

Hi all!

As promised, today I’m sharing with you a guest post written by my friend Chery.

Chery’s journey to veganism led her to create her own all natural cosmetics and skincare products. Through using her own products and eating a vegan diet, she cured her own skin condition, and discovered a lot about commercial products along the way.

They make great stocking-stuffers, kris kringle presents, or just ‘I think you’re wonderful’ presents, which are the best kind of all! If you don’t have a bathtub, find a bowl big enough for your feet, fill it with warm water and drop one of these babies in it for an indulgent treat. Continue reading

If there’s any leftover on Saturday morning I’ll often eat a little bowl of them for breakfast, microwaved. I’ve served them as mini-tart filling (entree), as a dip (nibblies), eaten on top of salad (dinner), and in a sandwich (lunch). Continue reading
