About Taylor

I'm a twenty something happy, animal loving, curious experimenter. I love reaching back into history and trying old recipes for cosmetics or foods. I'm constantly asking "Why?" My curiosity has me trying new things. I love taking walks with my dog as well as staying at home to cuddle with the dog and my cats. Some of my favorite scents include Hinoki Wood, Rose Garden, Jasmine and Gladiator.


Finished Lemon Ginger Lip Balm

Finished Essential Oil Blend 3
Finished Essential Oil Blend I love all kinds of scented products. Perfumes, potpourri, lotions, body scrubs, etc. If it is scented, I am almost guaranteed to love it. That being said, I am funny in that I like my soaps to have a clean scent. Masculine, feminine or unisex, soap scents all need to smell fresh [...]

Salted Lemonade Lip Scrub Alright. So there are days I like to consider myself fairly adventurous when it comes to food. So when I saw a recipe online for a Salted Lemonade, I was both horrified and curious. Salt? With lemonade? Say it isn’t so! Well, I just had to try it. The first time I [...]
