How To Make Fine Mist Room Deodorizer

I love for my house to smell as if I just baked a pie, a bowl of fruit is on the table, Christmas is just around the corner,  or a fir-tree is sitting in the den.  I can’t use commercial room deodorizers due to a medical homemade-pain-relieving-salvecondition known as multiple chemical sensitivity.  Which means if the product has a petro chemical I will become very ill.  I had to find an alternative.

There are thousands of recipes on-line for DIY room deodorizers.  I am going to tell how I create my deodorizer.





Life On A Tobacco Farm By Vera Morton Mallard

This article is written from my memories as a child and teenager. I wish I could take a trip back to experience it all over again just for a day.  Before too long, no one will remember the way of life I will describe because those of us who lived it will be gone.  Rural farms are disappearing just as King Tobacco has disappeared.  Now, instead of growing tobacco, the land sets forlorn or is growing houses, condos, apartments, or mobile homes.




Life on a tobacco farm was hard back-breaking work.

I grew up in the South during a time when tobacco was King.  Everyone we knew grew, harvested, and cured tobacco in eastern rural North Carolina.

It was our cash crop and the only way of making a living for our families.  This was before we knew how harmful tobacco products were to our health.

We rose early on the farm when tobacco season was in full swing.  My father would rise around 4 in the

How To Make Hair Spray From Oranges




How to Use The Mighty Orange For Hair Spray


I posted a recipe for DIY hairspray some time ago.  I wanted to give you an update.  I always made this spray with lemons for light hair as my hair is grey.  Two weeks ago I needed hair spray, all I had was a huge orange; I mean a HUGE orange.  I decided to use this BIG boy for my spray.

I cut in rounds, added two cups of filtered water to pot and simmered down to 1 cup total.  After it cooled, I
