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 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 [...]

Finished Tutti Fruitti Smoothie Lip Balm I love fruit smoothies. They are so easy to do and with the help of my blender, fast too.
