Replace These 6 Products and GREATLY Reduce Your Daily Chemical Intake.

So many of you are starting your natural journey.  I have to confess, sometimes I forget that.  The passion behind this blog is to educate and help you transition into a healthier lifestyle, mainly with the beauty products you choose for you and your family.  Sometimes I lose sight of the fact that choosing or making safe products can be a new concept, so I wanted to write a post that will show you were to start.  Because let's face it-a natural lifestyle can be expensive and overwhelming.  … [Read more...]

Why I Avoid Fluoride

About two years ago I took my oldest daughter to get her teeth cleaned.  This was back when I was married and had a husband who I had to occasionally humor with his preference in consulting a doctor every time one of us sneezed.   I went in knowing I was not OK with fluoride but as the dental hygienist began to rake me over the coals for rejecting their fluoride treatment I realized that while I knew it was harmful, I did not know the reasons why.  Let me tell you, that hygienist, while sweet as … [Read more...]

Yeast Overgrowth & Detox Made Simple!

I've mentioned in about a dozen other posts that I have digestive issues.  I'm a big advocate of probiotics and focus on eating as clean as I can.  I also drink a ton of water and exercise.  Seems like I should be good to go, right?  Wrong.  I'm bloated, constipated and uncomfortable 80% of the time.  Not to mention it's pretty normal to get asked the question, "when are you due?".  I always am thankful for my stomach issues though because by wanting relief so desperately it has put me on a … [Read more...]

Maca is a close relative of the radish and is very common in Peru.  It does not contain … [Read more...]

A Ringworm Remedy Among Other Things….

My girls and I got ringworm.  How's that for transparent?  Back in October we bought two kittens and they ended up giving us ringworm, or so I think.  Now, let's get one thing straight-ringworm is not actually caused by a worm.  It's a fungal rash very much like Athlete's foot and jock itch.  Awesome.  It's a round rash that is crazy hard to get rid of and very contagious.  First Heidi got a patch on her back.  Then I got a patch on my arm and next Sofie got one on her arm as well.  I knew it … [Read more...]

The Power of Diffusing Essential Oils

I love diffusing.  I diffuse daily for several reasons and I believe it's a healthy habit that can enhance your overall being.  There are many benefits to diffusing that I'd like to shine a light on in case you're on the fence as to whether you should use essential oils in your home. When you diffuse, you add filtered water and 8-10 drops of essential oils.  I typically run mine for about 2 hours at a time.  The diffuser creates a mist that becomes suspended into the air for 2-3 hours after … [Read more...]
