When you show your toddler how to write their name, chances are they’ll be more inclined to practice on their own. And chances are if you have a toddler, they will find permanent markers that you didn’t even know you had.
My toddler recently practiced his A’s in Sharpie on our Golden Ecru walls. Then in few short seconds of his undercover work, he managed to add some black strokes to his face also. Sometimes I try to wash the pen ink off with a wet cloth, or let it fade with the week (instead of washing with harsh chemicals). But I’ve been using this one natural miracle remover!
One of the biggest stressors of being home with my boys is keeping the house clean. It’s like I spend a morning cleaning and then by dinner time it’s destroyed. Sometimes it feels pointless.
Do you feel this way too? Like you might be a little more enthused if you could clean your whole house while someone watched your kids? Or if once your house was clean, your kids helped you keep it clean?
My house never stays clean! But I can make it appear that way for guests.
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.
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.
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. 😀
