Spark Naturals Winter Survival Kit!

Ugh.  Winter.  I wasn't singing this tune mid September when we were having 95 degrees and no rain in sight.  Don't get me wrong, I love anything cozy.  In order to truly get cozy, it has to be cold outside (at least I think so).   So the whole holiday we've had a roaring fire, worn pajamas, sipped hot chocolate and sneezed.  With the good comes the bad.  Lack of vitamin D from the sun, stale, recycled, dry air, and too much un healthy foods around the holidays all contribute to colds and flu … [Read more...]

5 Tips on Surviving Cold/Flu Season without Doctors or Drugs…

As I was applying oils to my daughter's ears the other day I got to thinking....  I really have figured out how to get through a winter without a doctor or a drug store.  Now granted, we've had nothing life threatening but we have had our fair share of bugs this winter.  Every time I turn around, one of my girls has caught another cold!  And I must admit-this is not a post about immune systems-I'm a candy-0holic.  I try really hard to keep it at a bare minimum but I've passed my love of sweets … [Read more...]

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 Peppermint Eucalyptus Vapor Rub…..

As most of you know, I am on a mission to rid my house of toxins.  This journey of mine began when I started getting very leery of the skin care industry.  I have been an Aesthetician for over 10 years and have been using and selling professional lines of skin care until about four years ago.  I realized that even if a product is found in a high end salon or claims to be "natural" it most likely couldn't be further from actually being good for your skin.  The laundry list of harmful ingredients … [Read more...]
