Guest Blog Theme – Family 4

The guest blog theme for next week is family. Do you remember in the movie Lilo and Stitch when they say; “Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” I love that phrase. Even when family drives me absolutely crazy, they always touch my heart.

Tell us how making soap or other cosmetics has made you appreciate your family and maybe even brought them together. My great grandmother would always help my great grandfather in the family pharmacy in the weeks before Christmas. She would even help him on Christmas Eve! Christmas Eve dinner has always been an important event for my family. Due to the chaos at the family pharmacy, making a big Christmas Eve dinner was always really difficult for my great grandmother. As a result, she started the tradition of having spaghetti and meatballs for the Christmas Eve meal. The marinara sauce could simmer all day while she worked at the pharmacy. It was simple and a time saver for her. To this day, in honor of my great grandmother, we have homemade spaghetti and meatballs. We treasure this family tradition that brought us together so MANY years ago and it is keeping us together so many years later.

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.

    Okay, silly question- how does one submit a guest blog? *l*

    There is no such thing as a silly question here! We are all learning together and we rely on your questions for new ideas, projects and experimentation. It also helps us communicate ourselves more effectively. See, no silly questions. 😉

    To submit your blog, send an email to contain your text and photos. From there we will post your story. See, pretty easy on your part.

    Best of luck!

    Found some typos! “in honor (insert “of”) my grandmother. Also, “…and it (should be “it”s”).

    I’m only just beginning…I want that goodie basket!:) More later!
