Clean your tub the natural way!

I just got an email from my buddy Adam who wanted to pass along a recipe for making your own bathtub cleaner. We have not tested this recipe but thought we should share it with you anyway.

Silky Scrub
1 cup baking soda into a medium-size mixing bowl
1/2 cup castile liquid soap
5-10 drops of antibacterial essential oil, such as lavender, tea tree or rosemary (optional)

1. Pour baking soda into a medium-size bowl.
2. Add soap a little at a time, stirring continuously. Stop adding after your mixture has begun to resemble frosting.
3. Mix in drops of essential oil.
4. Store in an airtight jar for up to a year.
