I was lying in bed, scrolling through Facebook one morning as per my morning ritual when I came across the most gorgeous fox-like face. He was two and a half years old and was being re-homed due to aggression between him and his senior 15-year-old brother.

My sister came home one day and told us the recipe she has for her bath bombs. I was eager to get some done for a girl at work because she was so stressed out. I wanted to use Frankincense.

She requested blue-colored soaps and I thought it wouldn't be a bad idea to try it out when my sister was still here.
