Is that really possible?

Yes, yes it is!

Oatmeal and Milk Bath


This moisturizing milk bath is easy to make.  The oatmeal soothes irritated skin, and the baking soda and powdered whole milk moisturize.



Ingredients

Directions


Mix the milk powder, ground oats, baking soda, and the contents of the tea bag together.  Add the essential oils and stir well.

Pour it into the bath as its filling.

If you like milk baths, try my hot chocolate milk bath recipe or my lavender chamomile milk bath recipe .

Eucalyptus Shower Steamers


Use these when you have congestion in your chest or nasal congestion.  Do not use this as a bath bomb because the concentration of essential oils is too high.



Ingredients


Directions


Heat the coconut oil until just melted.  Add the essential oils.  Pour over the baking soda and stir until it's crumbly.   It should just stick together and will be crumbly.  Press it into an ice cube tray or something similar.  Let dry for 24 hours.  Place one shower steamer on the bottom of the shower away from where the water will hit it directly.

Try my bedtime shower melt without citric acid, cold and flu shower steamers, or my wake up shower melts recipe.   

Lavender Buds and Tranquility Milk Bath

Homemade Eczema Body Butter With Aloe Vera

How to make a homemade eczema body butter with aloe vera.  This easy recipe has shea butter, herbal infused oil, and essential oils that can promote healing and better looking skin.

As a mom of three kids, I figured eczema would hit us at some point.  Caleb is allergic to several environmental things and has asthma and breathing problems, so I figured it would be him.

Nope.  It's me.

I'm glad it's not Caleb or one of my other kids because eczema kinda sucks.  It's itchy, gross looking, and annoying.  Recently, it was even painful.

DIY Unicorn Bath Bomb

This DIY unicorn bath bomb is easy to make!  Use mica to paint stripes on the bath bombs for a fun and unique look that's easy to replicate at home.  This uses a natural fragrance oil called Unicorn Kisses for the scent.

My daughter is 12, and like most 12-year-old girls, she's obsessed with unicorns.  She likes most things with fun colors (especially pink) and glitter, too.  She also loves bath bombs.

Since she has a cool mom, I let her help make some DIY unicorn bath bombs.  Most unicorn bath bombs have alternating colors, but I wanted something that was easier for her to make.

How to make DIY unicorn bath bombs recipe.  These unique bath bombs are natural and made with Epsom salt and without cornstarch. These cute bath bombs are great for kids.  They are moisturizing thanks to coconut oil and baking soda. The citric acid makes them fizzy. It uses a natural Unicorn Kisses fragrance oil scents. These pretty home made bath bombs are easy to make and make great gift ideas. #unicorn #bathbomb


I decided to have her paint the bath bombs with mica for unicorn colors.  I really like this because it's different, and you can make several different kinds of bath bombs.  

It was also easier for her to do without worrying about mixing different colors and forming the bath bomb while alternating colors.

If you're making these DIY unicorn bath bombs as gifts, you can make different designs with the colors to make fun set for the recipient.

DIY Unicorn Bath Bombs


Dry Ingredients


For the dry ingredients, I used baking soda, citric acid, arrowroot powder, Epsom salt, and kaolin clay.  Citric acid and baking soda are what makes these DIY unicorn bath bombs fizz.  

When they come in contact with water, they create a chemical reaction that releases carbon dioxide to create a fun fizz.

Like a true homeschooling mom, even something fun like making bath bombs becomes a science experiment.

They are moisturizing thanks to coconut oil and baking soda. The citric acid makes them fizzy. It uses a natural Unicorn Kisses fragrance oil scents. These pretty home made bath bombs are easy to make and make great gift ideas. #unicorn #bathbomb


I added arrowroot powder and kaolin clay to harden the bath bombs.  If you just use baking soda and citric acid, your bath bombs will be soft and likely to crumble.  

I added some Epsom salts because they help detox.  They have magnesium in them, and the magnesium can be absorbed through the skin too boost magnesium levels in the body.



Wet Ingredients


I used coconut oil and polysorbate 80 for wet ingredients.  I added coconut oil because it's a solid at room temperature.  This helps firm and strengthen the bath bomb so it won't crumble.

Coconut oil is also moisturizing for your skin.  It has fatty acids that moisturize the skin, which is good if you have dry skin.  My daughter has dry skin, so I like to use carrier oils on her skin to moisturize and prevent dry skin.

The coconut oil and mica won't mix with the water, so they just sit on top of the water.  They will form a foam on top that isn't very pretty and leave a ring on the tub. 

I added polysorbate 80 to act as an emulsifier.  It binds with both oil and water, so it helps the coconut oil and mica get dispersed in the water.  This also help make the bathtub less slippery after you use this DIY unicorn bath bomb.

Unicorn Kisses


I asked the owner of Crafty Bubbles for a unicorn blend, something fun and fruity.  He created a Unicorn Kisses blend that has a mix of fruits and berries.



He made it with natural fragrance oils.  These are natural, but they have scents that you can't find in essential oils, like fruit scents.  


It's a very fun scent.  I use it as a perfume and diffuse it when I want the house to smell good.  

Mica


You'll use mica to paint the bath bombs to turn them into fun unicorn bath bombs.  I bought ORAK mica powder from Amazon.  

It has 24 different colors.  Each bag has 0.1 ounces.  That doesn't seem like a lot, but I'm pretty sure I'll be using it for many years.  I've had it over a year and haven't used more than 5 percent of any of the bags.

I use the mica in soaps, bath bombs, scrubs, and pretty much most of my DIY beauty recipes.

Molds


I used my Makarios bath bomb molds.  I love this set because it's so sturdy.  The small bath bombs we made were from a different bath bomb mold that doesn't have a brand name.  


I really prefer the Makarios bath bomb molds, but we had a little leftover and used a smaller one to use up the rest of the mix.  

I used these bath bombs to make these easy bath bombs with Epsom salts and for my succulent bath bombs.

Instant Pot Honey and Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe Sugar Free

This honey and cinnamon applesauce is easy to make in the Instant Pot.  It's sugar free, and I promise that you won't even miss the sugar!

When we came to the farm the first time, we were thrilled when we drove past a mature orchard.  The previous owners loved to cook and canned foods, so they planted an orchard.

They planted several types of apples, peaches, plums, and pears in the orchard.  Since she loved to cook, they planted several varieties so that they could make applesauce, pies, and have apples that were perfect for eating plain.

They didn't believe in using any chemicals, so the 200 tree orchard is all natural and organic.  I've had a lot of fun using the fruit to try new recipes in the last six years since we moved here.

I got an Instant Pot almost two years ago, and it's been invaluable in the kitchen.  I thought it was going to be just another appliance that took up space in my already too small kitchen, but I was wrong.

I use it at least four times a week for dinner or for dinner prep.  I wanted to find a way to use it for food preserving, so I started using my Instant Pot to make applesauce.

Since we try to eliminate excess sugar, I made my applesauce with honey so it's sugar free.  Depending on the type of apples you use, you may not need to use any sweetener.

Instant Pot Honey and Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe


I have a food mill, so making applesauce has always been fairly easy.  When I was growing up, my grandma used to get boxes and boxes of apples from an orchard.  Applesauce making day was a family event, and we all used to work together to make applesauce for the family for the next year.

I don't know what kind of apples she used, but she ended up with pink applesauce.  She didn't add any sugar or color, but it was plenty sweet and a pretty pink color.

When David started eating solid foods, I wanted to make baby food, including applesauce.  Applesauce is pretty easy to make with a food mill, but now I think I like this Instant Pot applesauce recipe better.

When I made applesauce before, I would quarter the apples and put them in a stock pot and cook them until they were soft.  I didn't add water, so I had to watch them the whole time.

When they were soft, I ran them though the food mill and either froze it or canned it.

I love my food mill, but it's a messy device.  If you're spending most of the day making applesauce, it's worth it.  But for small batches like this Instant Pot applesauce recipe, it's really not worth it.

Canning or Freezing


You can can or freeze the leftover applesauce in this recipe.  If you're going to can it, you should add 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice per pint of applesauce and process for 20 minutes.

I normally freeze my applesauce.  I have a stand up freezer, but I still have more shelf space than freezer space.  I try to can most foods, but applesauce tastes better when frozen versus canned.

Frozen applesauce tends to be sweeter and firmer than canned applesauce.  I will can one batch of applesauce each year to save some freezer space.  I can it unsweetened and without any cinnamon and then use it in place of oil when I'm cooking.

Apples


For the best Instant Pot applesauce, start with the best apples.  Any apple variety will work, but some are better than others for sauce.

The best apples to use for sweet applesauce are:


  • Fuji
  • Cortland
  • Crispin
  • Golden Delicious
If you want more of a tart applesauce, try:

  • McIntosh
  • Jonamac
  • Gravenstein
I usually mix apples and try to get some sweet apples and some tart ones.  I think the best applesauce comes from a mix of apples.

Honey


If you do use sweet apples, you may not need any sweetener.  I don't use any sweetener for all sweet apples, but we don't use a lot of extra sweetener anyway.

The first time you make this or if you use a different kind of apple, I recommend making it without any honey and adding the honey after it cooks.

I recommend buying raw honey.  The honey sold in the grocery store can barely be called honey.  It's usually processed and has other ingredients added.  

I buy a pint of local raw honey for about $10.  It's not too much more than what you'd find at the stores, and I'm supporting a local business.  I live in a rural area, so I can find local raw honey at most stores.

Makes: 4.25 cups

Ingredients



  • 3 lbs (about 5 medium-large) red apples*
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup raw honey, adjust to taste
  • large pinch of fine sea salt (or regular salt)


Instructions


Step #1


Peel and core the apples and cut them into 1 inch cubes. Place the apple pieces into the pressure cooker pot then sprinkle in the cinnamon and salt over them.  Pour in the honey and then the water.

Stir until the apple pieces are coated with cinnamon, honey, and sugar. Place the lid on the pressure cooker and set the pressure cooker valve to sealing then pressure cook on high for 5 minutes.



Step #2


Once the time is up, let the Instant Pot naturally release for 5 minutes.  Then turn the valve to vent and quick release the pressure.



Step #3


Carefully open the lid away from your face. Use a potato masher to mash the applesauce to your desired consistency, or you can also use a stick blender to blend until completely smooth.



If the applesauce is too liquidy for your taste you can set the pressure cooker to sauté and cook it down to your desired thickness.

Step #4


Taste and adjust honey if desired.



You can let it cool slightly and serve warm or allow to cool in the refrigerator until ready to serve. This applesauce will keep fresh in the fridge for about a week—if it lasts you that long.

Yum!  This Instant Pot applesauce recipe is so easy to make, and it takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Be warned though, this recipe may spoil you and your family.  You may not be able to get them to go back to store bought applesauce after eating this.

My kids always balk at sugar-free anything, so I didn't tell them that it didn't have sugar.  If I do use honey, I barely use any.  What they don't know won't hurt them, right?
