1. Slice all the fruit into thin slices. 2. To dry the fruit out, you can either use a food dehydrator or place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and place it in the oven on very very low heat. I've found that the dehydrator works the best. You can place the fruit in there and just let it go, without tying up your oven.(food dehydrators can be bought at your local wal-mart. I got mine for $20) 3. Dry it out until it is a light brown color, and has almost no smell to it. (If using a food dehydrator, this will take a few days. Times vary for ovens) 4. Place all the dried fruit and the botanicals into 2 large sandwich plastic bags. Add about 5-10 drops of your prefered fragrance. 5. Close the bags with a twist tie, and put it in a dark area for 2 weeks. Remember to shake the bag up every couple of days. 6.After the two weeks is up, open the bag. If you want a stronger smell, and some more fragrance oil and repeat the last step

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
