    We really need a dehydrator! I’ve been trying to purchase a used one for some time now since I lost my job. It will help us stay on our raw food path more sustainably because we can buy in bulk and dehydrate!

  10. Kim Senart says

    What a great prize and wonderful why to do good/spices differently. It is exciting and hard to wait to hear who wins.

  11. Jenn Martin says

    Looking forward to September 1st! I’ve never owned a dehydrator, and I am currently taking my Herb 101 class through for my degree in Complementary and Alternative Medicine, so while I am growing my own herbs, I’d love the opportunity to dry and save them in half the time. Not to mention the fruit leather I could make for the kids!

    Thanks for this opportunity!

  12. CraftasaurusRex says

    My dehydrator is JUST starting to poop out on me…this would be an amazing thing to win, and make our low budget stretch even further!

    I had a dehydrator years ago and gave it away. Now I wish I hadn’t. So, I can’t definitely use another one to share with my family.

  14. lisa says

    This would be a blessing in my house! I already began making my own laundry soap, now I will try the dish soap tonight 🙂 I make wholesome feed for my chickens, and my beagle/basset.

    I love your website and frequently use ideas I find there. The food dehydrator would be a huge help to me. I suffer from auto-immune disease and have many food issues. I try to grow my own and purchase locally, but can’t always manage it. This processor would allow me to preserve clean, organic food that doesn’t make me sick. Thanks for all you do!

  34. Delilia Werner says

    Love your site. Have started making my own toothpowder!
    Question-where can I find wintergreen essential oil? MountainRose Herbs doesn’t seem to carry it, and a quick search on the internet showed nothing.

  35. Cindi Kessler says

    I’ve just started making my own cleaning products, soap & shampoo. DIYnatural is the only place I go to for recipes. You make it so simple, even I am able to do it! I’m trying to cook healthier too, and the dehydrator would help with fruit and meats! Thank you for all the work you do, we really appreciate it.

  36. Anne says

    I look forward to your emails and posts….love the natural, organic ways! I would love to dehydrate some farm fresh goodies for my family!!

  37. Marianne says

    I’m so happy I found you guys! I look forward to your posts and enjoy trying out new stuff. I’m using your mouthwash and made a new batch just this morning. I would love a new dehydrator! Thank you for the chance.

  38. Kelly Irving says

    My herbs are growing is well this year and I do not own a dehydrator ( doing the old fashioned method). This would be a wonderful gift! Thanks o much for your website, I follow you on Pintrest and look forward to your emails!

  39. Brandi @ Savvy Student Shopper says

    I entered, thanks! I’d love to have an Excalibur for my garden goodies!

  40. KC says

    Oh, this would be perfect! I have a large family and we joined a CSA this year. I am trying to feed the kids as much raw and healthy foods as possible. The dehydrator would really help me make some exciting foods that the kids would enjoy!
