Fall Diffuser Potions…

Fall just might be my favorite season.  There's just something about it.  With the days getting shorter, grayer and colder, I just get giddy thinking about scary movies, smores and fires in the fireplace!  My all-time favorite fall candle is THIS and I still burn it-I won't lie.  I just can't let it go, but I'm very aware of the toxins and only burn it on special night or dreary days.  Daily I diffuse.  Since essential oils are antibacterial and antiviral they do the opposite of what most candle … [Read more...]

Multi Purpose Beauty Balm DIY…

Meet Wild Rose.... Not to be confused with Black Betty.  Ha, Ha.  Every time I look at the above picture I think of some passionate, man chasin' whiskey drinkin' woman of the night-But this post is totally not about that. I wrote a couple of posts a few months back about Neal's Yard Remedies.  They are an English botanically based skin care line that offer amazing skin care products!  One product in particular is their Wild Rose Balm.  It is a multitasking product to say the least.  I follow … [Read more...]

Skin Remodeling DIY

Many of you reading this are like me, that's why you're here!  DIY skin care is fascinating, empowering and all around smart.  It's not just for the uber crunchy-granola crowd anymore!  It's for women who want to feel and look young but don't want the toxic chemicals that are oh so common in the world of beauty.  When Deborah Tosline contacted me about her new book I was thrilled.  I'm hungry for anything I can get my hands on that is credible and readable.  I'll just be honest-I run into a lot … [Read more...]

Cleanser Making 101

Making your own cleansers can be oh so fun and rewarding.  That's how I felt when I was new to the world of making my own skin care.  I LOVED how Dr. Bronner offered so many variations of his oil based soap that was organic, fair trade and 100% natural.  It was simple to add water and oils and have a legit cleanser within minutes!  As I got deeper into the fascinating world of DIY skin care, I found out about a little thing called pH.  I also realized that it wasn't just lotions that were … [Read more...]

LOVE BUG probiotics…

It's no secret that I love probiotics!  Like, I can't get through 1 day without them.   I've had gut issues for as long as I can remember.  All my nerves and stress end up in my gut, not to mention I was on antibiotics for 2 years straight when I was 16 (for skin issues, go figure).  Read my full post on why you need probiotics HERE. Just to recap-there is good and bad bacteria in our bodies.  When the good and bad bacteria get out of balance in our guts, stomach issues, skin issues and … [Read more...]

DIY Pedialyte

Any mom out there knows, when your kid is sick, it is a stressful time.  As moms (and some dads ;)) we are solely in charge of our child's welfare!  A couple of weeks ago my oldest got a stomach bug.  My girls are really pretty healthy-They tend to get fevers for about 12 hours and then they are fine-Fevers are a sign of a healthy immune system and when a little body can heat up a bug and kick it out-you are lucky.  This time it was different.  She had a throw up/diarrhea issue for a full 5 … [Read more...]

Item of the Week & Life Lately….

Hello everyone!  I've been MIA this week from the blog so I thought I'd drop in and say Hi.  This has been one of those weeks, hence no posts.  I caught a cold and it literally knocked me out!  Like, zero energy or brain action for several days.  My divorce became final yesterday so that was looming as well.  On a lighter note-things are looking up-Fall is such an exciting time for me and I definitely feel that a chapter has closed and a new and promising one is beginning!  The girls are doing … [Read more...]

Maple Holistics & Free Products!

I'm going to admit something that is going to disappoint you-I, Jenni Raincloud use toxic, chemical filled shampoo.  I have cleaned up my skin care and body care routine.  I've cleaned up my cleaning products and I've made huge strides in cleaning up the food my family and I eat, but when it comes to hair care, I'm at a loss.  I'm LOW maintenance with hair.  I haven't had a hair cut in months and months.  My hair is long because I just don't care-it's not long on purpose.  I don't use products, … [Read more...]

Lotion Making for the Beginner…. 3 ingredients-2 of which are in your kitchen!

So I was thinking about how daunting DIY skin care can be.  Especially making lotions.  I think most of us are most intrigued at making lotions but are uncertain about how much ingredients are going to cost and then what if your cream does come out right?  These are two very valid concerns.  I usually like to link my ingredients to Mountain Rose Herb because I trust their quality, but for today, I'm going to link all Amazon Prime, Jenni Approved ingredients-That way you can save on shipping, get … [Read more...]
