Garden tips and tricks

I start my seeds in my sunniest windows every year. This year, we've had a temperate Winter. I thought I had some fruit flies from my apple cider vinegar making adventures. I didn't understand why my fruit fly traps were not catching them.

After talking with some of my farmer friends, I discovered that this is a common entomological challenge that all farmers face.

How to exfoliate your skin

What does exfoliation mean? Exfoliation is the action of removing dead skin cells and dirt build up on the skin's surface, thereby promoting new skin cell growth. New skin cell growth deep cleans the skin.

Beard and Body Soap

In the case of natural beard soap, your beard and body soap can be the same.

Beards are exposed to more than just the elements. Air, dust, perfumes, indoor and outdoor fumes from cooking, car exhaust, HVAC systems, cleaning solutions, camp fires, and smells of all kinds love to stick to hair and sink in. Unlike the hair on your head, beards are also subject to everything you eat, drink and smoke (if you do such a thing).
