One thing I’ve learned through my laundry detergent research (and other household products), is that you can’t trust the label. “Plant-based” or “natural” mean nothing when you’re looking for nontoxic fixes. In the USA “natural” has no real legal definition. So, you have to educate yourself a bit on the ingredients on the back label.Continue reading “Homemade Laundry Detergent”
Someone asked me the other day if I was excited for 2019. Yet, another honest answer from me… I’m not ready for it. The holidays this year just feel super sped up. Right now, I have no current plans tonight except to stay up with my 6 year old while everyone else sleeps. My husband has work tomorrow and I don’t even want to deal with the little ones late at night.
Then there’s the whole New Years Resolutions thing.
All I want is to live a life of feeling good physically, spiritually in-touch, able to time-manage my whole family better, more patient with my kids, more time with my husband, and I want more financial freedom. But I’m not going to start all of these tomorrow. Of course I want a well-rounded life. But like any real-life scenario, once the car needs new breaks, the washing machine breaks.
So I’m going to chip away at these guides all year long during the times in which I feel like I need them most. These have all been resources I’ve used all throughout my adult life (and they litter my Instagram feed too!).Continue reading “10 Resources for your New Year Resolutions”
Essential oils for gifts! Are you on board?
Here’s why I went from “oils are a fad” to “they’ve changed my life!” And here are some gift ideas for you!
A gift box filled with little glass bottles, luxury soaps, beauty products, and more. Can you just picture how exciting that would be to open?
It’s so fun to smell all of the scents and to decide how you’re going to use them. And the gift of wellness is always worth it!
For those of you who are too stubborn to try them like I was, they’re 100% worth it! I promise!Continue reading “Essential Oil Gift Ideas”
Making the switch to natural products in your home may be a slow process, but the “why” of it is easy.
After starting my journey with essential oils, I learned how harmful everyday household products can be. The possibilities with essential oils seem as vast as the ocean. And they smell good too! But, what if I’m just looking for a basic non-toxic remedy that is super cheap? And what do I have on hand?
Researching different remedies continues to send me back to one household product. To be honest, you might have some forgotten about in your pantry right now.
Are you looking for tips on getting your kids to eat healthier?
This question has been going around lately.
The truth is, we started our healthy routine right away. We incorporated habits we learned growing up and applied them to our family. And that’s what’s made it fairly easy for us. However, sometimes your kids learn to be picky from other kids. And sometimes they are just downright stubborn! That can be so frustrating!
A lot of factors go in to living a healthy lifestyle including good influence and routine. I’m not a health and nutrition professional, I just know that these factors have helped our family to make good choices!
Here’s what essential oils really did for my family on the first week!
Last week, I was anxiously waiting the arrival of the delivery guy with my Young Living starter kit. When I saw him pull in, I paced around the house, snatched the box, then had that thing opened up before he could even pull away. 😀
Yes, I was that excited!
