Fast Absorbing Body Butter w/ Hibiscus

Summer is here and I don't know about you but I'm in need of some serious moisture!  Winter has left my skin ashy and dull so after finding out mango butter and sesame oil are fast absorbing, it made me think about how great it would be to make an effective body moisturizer that would actually soak in rather then setting on top of the skin.  I decided to make a body butter rather then a body cream in order to make the most effective product.  Since creams contain about 80% water, a body butter … [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...]

What’s In My “Just-In-Case” Vacation Bag…

We recently went on vacation and as I was packing my "just in case" bag, I thought it would be fun to share what exactly I pack just in case one of us comes down with something while on vacation.  It's just not an option for us to run to a local pharmacy and load up on allergy, cold or stomach bug drugs-not when there's a safe, natural remedy. I'm a very light packer.  I'm the person who packs way too light then ends up going shopping mid-way through the trip for sensible shoes and extra … [Read more...]
