Sunburn Relief Spray

I have a confession to make-I have a sunburn.  And it's bad.  My girls were begging to go swimming and I had just been at the gym so a dip sounded so good.  What was supposed to be 20 minutes, turned into an hour with no sunblock, no umbrella!  I should have known better!!  So, I'm bright pink right now!   To try to make it up to my skin, I immediately made something that would sooth, tone the hotness down and replenish.  This is an easy recipe, pretty obvious, but so effective!   Luckily I had … [Read more...]

Bug Bite Balm

It's the season for bugs, that's for sure.  One summer evening spent on the patio can bring on pink bumps that will itch and look awful for days!  I seriously can not live with out this balm.  It makes mosquito bites so much more bearable.  Once I get bit, I immediately apply this balm to my bite for relief, but the best thing is that within the hour the bump is almost gone and I never deal with the incessant itching again! This is an easy recipe and super convenient when you keep it in a … [Read more...]

All-Natural Bug Repellent

I can't put this off any longer.  Some of you may have noticed that I like to focus on beauty.  I like to stick to girly and glamorous posts that are fun, but last night my family and I sat on the patio-I was out of my homemade bug repellent but thought we would be OK.  Uh....was I wrong.  All of us have big red bumps on our legs from mosquitos.  Bad move on my part.  Oh, and did you know, mosquitos are attracted to estrogen??   Gotta do it, It's BUG WEEK! A strong bug spray is an essential … [Read more...]

Push Up Tubes=Fun Sticks!

Who doesn't need a little convenience in their life??  I know I do!  You all know, one of my favorite things is making balms and salves!  It's easy and rewarding!  The wonderful thing about balms and salves is that they hold their shape.  You can add any beneficial essential oil for whatever skin need you have and have an easy to apply treatment.  But wait-What if you put it in one of those cheapo plastic lip balm tubes??  So perfect.  Little ones get boo boos at the zoo?  Have no fear-Super Mom … [Read more...]

How to Treat Croup Naturally

My oldest daughter has come down with croup-it's the second time this winter.  The first time she got it I wasn't prepared.   She's never sick, then pre-K started in the fall and BOOM-we are all sick ALL. THE. TIME.  So far we have been able to treat our illnesses naturally and haven't gotten so sick that a doctor was necessary.  My aim is to keep it this way!  This post will give you an easy protocol in treating upper respiratory issues as well as croup.  I had a go at making my own sore throat … [Read more...]

DIY Allergy Relief Balm

Fall is around the corner and with the falling leaves and cooler air, allergies seem to come on with a vengeance.  Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint are powerful essential oils that combine to make a healthy, easy remedy for sniffles and sneezes!  Together they create a strong antihistamine and reduce inflammation.  So I thought why not make a salve of it?  At my home allergies run rampant.  Before I met my husband I had 4 cats and I would have continued to add to my menagerie if my fiance at the … [Read more...]
