Looking to add a little frugal romance to your Valentine’s Day? Look no further than this easy homemade massage oil recipe!
Personally, I’m an advocate of staying in on Valentine’s Day. However, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t appreciate a thoughtful gift and candlelit dinner (hint, hint)! I just don’t find scrambling for a babysitter, packing into an overcrowded restaurant, and overpaying for food to be particularly romantic (or budget friendly). Instead, Mr. Freebie Finding Mom and I typically stay home and tackle a Valentine’s dinner recipe together and exchange small, thoughtful gifts. This year I’m planning to surprise him with this homemade massage oil recipe. Don’t tell. 😉
