My grandfather loved dandelions (you can read more about that here) and whenever I see a field, or yard, of dandelions I think of him. There’s something simply magical about the white puffs that sprout from the yellow flowers, only to blow in the wind to then seed the next year’s sunny pretties.
Dandelion lotion bars are the perfect way to celebrate spring and summer!
