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...]

DIY or BUY: Badger Sleep Balm

Who can say they get too much quality sleep?  Not many of us, I'm guessing.  So many factors affect sleep.  The two big ones for me are stress and hormones-oh and my new cat, August Banks.  He likes to rearrange his poop and pee in the litter box at least twice a night and enjoys knocking random objects off table tops around 4 in the morning.  Insert teeth gritted emoji. I'm sure many of you have kiddos waking up in the middle of the night and snoring spouses.  Once we hit a certain age, … [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...]
