I Have A Skin Disease and I Need to Talk About It!

That's quite a title and it's totally true.  It's time to come clean because running a skin care blog with bad skin ain't easy.  I feel my journey to healing could be helpful to some of you and a good example that when choosing to treat the body naturally, it can take time because you are addressing the body as a whole rather then remedying symptoms of something bigger. Around 4 mos. ago I woke up to a small patch of tiny red bumps on the right side of my face near my mouth.  Assuming it was … [Read more...]

The New Smoothie Formula….

I listened to a pod cast the other day that had me on the edge of my seat....  Now granted, smoothies don't get everyone as excited as they get me, but I found what I learned was definitely worth passing on. In my opinion, I find smoothies are an easy way to up your nutrition intake.  I'm not the most consistent when it comes to adding vegetables to my daily routine so a daily green smoothie is something I've committed to for the last few years to insure I at least get a handful of greens … [Read more...]

Calendula Tamanu Healing Balm with Lemon & Coconut…

It's been almost 3 years since I posted THIS neosporin salve.  Let me tell you-it is probably THE most used DIY I have ever made.  I use it for everything from cracked heels to treating bug bites and and cuts.  I've made it over 20 times and honestly think it smells like what I imagine heaven to smell like!  Yeah, I'm tootin' this horn rather loud but I just really love this product.  When I infused safflower oil with calendula flowers a few months ago, I wanted to make another version of the … [Read more...]

This Summer’s Must Have!

I've been sent a lot of products lately, so many that I've quit accepting them because I don't have enough skin or time for so many products reviews (sigh, weird blogger problems)!  But-I had to share this particular product because it's going to be my right hand man for warmer weather!  Kopari is a natural body care company where all the products have a base of coconut oil and this product is liquid gold and nothing short of perfect. After a long hard winter, I don't know about you but my … [Read more...]

Introducing Coconut Oil @ Spark Naturals!

I have great news!!  My FAVORITE essential oil company, Spark Naturals is now carrying coconut oil!  I'm so exciting because, while I love my usual source for unrefined coconut oil, it can be overwhelming to be ordering ingredients from several different places!  Spark Naturals sent me a jar to try out before I suggested it to you and I'm very happy with it!  It is organic, unrefined and cold pressed.  I use coconut daily so I thought I would share how and why along with this happy … [Read more...]

Coconut Oil in Your Smoothie Made Easy!

We've been talking smoothies a lot lately!  I think everyone could benefit from adding one to their daily diet and the more nutrition the better, right?  I posted THIS post about how to add flaxseed, chia seed, bee pollen and hemp hearts in 5 seconds flat which saves a ton of effort and time but I wanted to share one more trick I do that saves even more minutes. We all know how nutritious unrefined coconut oil is for the inside and outside of the body so why not add it to your smoothie?  The … [Read more...]
