I have ants.... at least I did.

A few days ago I put out cotton balls on my kitchen counter with a mixture of water, borax, and sugar.  I have to tell you, I haven't seen an ant in DAYS!  SO HAPPY! And it cost almost nothing to make.  I already use borax in my laundry as a deodorizer because I don't use fabric softener. 


Here is a video of  Greg the Gardner with the instructions on how to make it.  I didn't put it in a spray bottle. I just soaked cotton balls in the solution and places them on little lids where I had problem areas.  Every morning I re-soaked the cotton.  It TOTALLY WORKED. 

Dreadlock Anniversary take 4!

Happy Anniversary to me, Happy Anniversary to me, happy anniversary... you get the idea.

The dreads are another year old.


Still loving them.  (And the dude beside them!)

For everyday I use tea tree oil shampoo OR my new exciting Cedar Shampoo by Spirit Earth Holistics.  It smells AMAZING.

I still use the same concoction to deep clean them: 


Fill a sink or container with:

1/2 cup baking soda
8 drop tea tree oil*
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. sea salt.
Fill with really hot water... as hot as you can handle.
Soak for 10 min.
Leave  for another 30 min wrapped in a towel.
Rinse.

* If you are not a fan of tea tree oil sub in something you love the smell of!
