October is Here!

Forget the candy that gets passed out solely on 31st October. Witches do it right – fun crafts, recipes and giveaways throughout the entire month! So, go check out these folks: Red Wheel/Weiser Books is giving away books and a tote bag on...

Straining Herb-Infused Liquids

I was straining the latest batch of my hair rinse yesterday and had a “duh” moment. I usually strain any herb-infused liquid by balancing a mesh strainer over a measuring cup (or jar) and lining the strainer with a coffee filter...
