I'd like to preface this post first by saying, for the most part-I'm lucky when it comes to sleeping.  However, I have had … [Read more...]

The Top 8 Most Useful Essential Oils

I've been wanting to do a post on the most popular essential oils that I use daily.  I think so often we can become so bombarded with information about essential oils that it's almost impossible to truly know where to start.  Especially since there are different schools of thought when it comes to essential oils.  I've taken much of the below information from the Spark Naturals blog.  I find it extremely helpful when I'm doing research.  So below is a little info. plus how I personally use these … [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...]

Aloe Vera Toner with Juniper Berry

I've concocted a new toner recipe that I think you're gonna like!  I had run out of THIS toner and had just applied THIS mask.  My skin needed something soothing as well as balancing so it was time to make something to fit my skin's current needs.  I've been using this new toner for over a week and love how it is not only acting as a skin balancing spray, it is also calming and hydrating my skin in the process. Typical DIY toners contain witch hazel or apple cider vinegar.  Their main job is … [Read more...]

Pain Killer Headache Stick!

Headaches are such a bummer.  Unfortunately, I get them all the time-I can't wear a pony-tail without a head ache and I do all my blog posts via the sofa despite my new office space!  I had to find a way to relieve the pain without popping a pill all the time!  I searched and searched and found Dori's blend-Since she's a fellow Spark Naturals user and very essential oil savy-I knew she had the best essential oil blend.  Luckily I had all the oils, mixed it up and experienced immediate relief.  … [Read more...]
