I found this recipe and decided I would share it with all of you. This is a great way to save money and keep your electrolytes up :)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Orange Juice

The nice thing about this recipe is you can flavor it how you want, and make it your own.

Megan's Naturals

A couple of months ago my daughter Megan-she is 9 (pictured with her brother Charlie) asked if she could start making some products of her own. She has grown up watching all facets of Natures Light so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised by her She wanted to make lip gloss, so she asked Memere (Laurie her grandmother--Memere is French for Grandmother) and they sat down and ordered some scents and ingredients to make lip gloss.

Next thing you know Megan is asking her dad to make her a "stand" (she had drawn him design plans) so she can sit at the end of our driveway and sell her lip gloss. So the idea for Megan's Naturals by Natures Light was born :) She and I sat down and have started designing her web page, and labels for her products so look for Megan's Naturals coming soon to the Natures Light website. Her first products are Cotton Candy Lip Gloss and Wild Strawberry Lip Gloss.

Don't think Megan is done there, she already has a list of products for us to develop and believe me when I say she is persistent.
