I don’t know about you but it’s triple digit hot here in AZ (113 today) and time to make our Lavishly Natural Summer Favorites.
Up first — Hibiscus Hair Tea…or Hibiscus Rose Hair Tea.
My roses are starting to dry up in the heat, so it’s the perfect time to add the petals to sugar & salt scrubs, and of course our Luscious Hair Teas!
Since homeschool is out for the next week (homeschool summer school begins July 1st!) my kids are getting as much fun in the sun in as possible.
