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...]

The EASIEST Lotion Recipe Anyone Can Make!!

Many of you have asked me if you can ditch the emulsifying wax in my other DIY cream recipes and use beeswax instead.  With quite the know-it-all stance, I quickly assured you that beeswax would not properly bind oil and water.  I had tried this method in my early days of experimenting with DIYs and created the most greasy, non-cohesive "cream".  It was super gross and I reluctantly had to throw away a lot of wasted ingredients. I don't know what got into me this morning but I decided to give … [Read more...]

Allergy Relief-Part 2

Well, here we are talking about allergies again!  When I left you with my Part 1, I had decided to take 9 drops of L.L.P. essential oil blend (lavender, lemon and peppermint) in a gel cap 3 times a day.  I also committed to rubbing the blend on the bottoms of my feet at least 2 times a day. Some of you might be wondering why I don't just take an allergy pill.  One big reason that keeps me from taking allergy medication is that most of them work by drying your system out.  I cringe when I … [Read more...]

Allergy Relief PLEASE!!! Part 1

Hi!  Ok, let me paint you a picture.  I'm sitting here eyeball deep in brain fog.  I've been struggling with allergies for over 2 weeks now.   I literally go catatonic every few minutes, then snap out of it and wonder what I was doing before the latest episode.  The trees are all budding, have I mentioned we live in a forest?  Pear trees are fully bloomed and it hasn't properly rained in over 2 weeks. I'm driving myself crazy trying to write a decent post!  Hence, my 1 no-brainer post from last … [Read more...]
