Come on, get crunchy

Posted By on Tue, May 3, 2011 at 8:32 AM

I don't do it often, but every now and again I like to give a shout-out to a local blogger.

Not one of the lazy-ass ones with an unloved site of mostly re-posted material, but someone who posts consistently with original content, who offers something valuable to our community.

One of those someones is a Manitou Springs resident named Leslie, who runs Crunchy Betty, a site devoted to (in Leslie's words) "homemade beauty, household cleaning recipes, home remedies, etc."


If that sounds a bit staid, a quick tour of the site will prove otherwise.

Want to learn how to make your own natural deodorant?

Peppermint and vanilla extracts?

How 'bout a Sensual Chocolate Love Balm?

It's all there with free, detailed instructions, recommendations and sometimes some testing notes from Leslie's own experimentation. (When she alerted us to her presence last October, she was just starting "the Great No 'Poo experiment," which thankfully referred to the cutting out of shampoo — not No. 2.)

Check out her best of page to catch up on what you've missed.
