The Soap Tribune, Issue #063--Apples
November 04, 2021


This has been a bumper year for apples. They are sweet, crunchy, tart, green, yellow, red, purple-y red, reddish-black, green with red blush, yellow with green blush, you name it, Ithaca has a gigantic variety of apples growing right here.

Did you know that there are some apple growers in a radius around Ithaca that contribute to the many amazing apples you find around the country? We are awash with apple abundance!!

Because of this bountiful harvest, we have been living on this amazing resource. Apple pie, apple ginger chutney, apples and cheese, apple sauce alone and with potato pancakes. The list is endless.

Of course the apple selection at The Ithaca Farmers Market is spectacular.

Lip Balm is still the best hair conditioner

I did some more hair conditioner experiments. For a few weeks, I went back to plain olive oil after hair washing using the same technique as the lip balm. Then I had a very busy week and didn't condition my hair at all. After that I returned to hair washing and using LiXTiK as hair conditioner. Once again, I like the lip balm the best.

Fall in store demo

I am scheduled to do an in-store LiXTiK Lip Balm demo at The Lexington Coop on Hertle Ave in Buffalo on Nov. 20th from 11:30-2pm. If you haven't been to this coop, it's time you checked it out.

I'll be giving out lip balm tastes along with Che GarcĂ­a Chimichurri and Lexi's Kitchen.

See you there!
