    Make Your Own Cedar and Spice Foam Soap

    by Andrea Butje on November 20, 2017

    We’re coming to the time of year when many people make recipes they might not make at any other time—the holidays!

    Some people make special casseroles, pies, or ciders and drinks that they save for this season. I like to make special Aromatherapy recipes!
