Essential Oils 101

Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in Be Informed, Be Whole, Featured Posts, Green Living, Healthy Moms, Looking Home, Savvy Advice | 0 comments

About a month ago I walked into my friend Karen’s house and exclaimed, “What’s that AMAZING smell?  Am I going to get a massage?”  It was her essential oil diffuser spreading a whole lot of incredible lavender and peace and calming love into the room…..and I couldn’t get enough.  Later that weekend we rubbed a...

The Long Shower….and how to take one without feeling guilty

You can imagine what the mornings were like with three sisters sharing one bathroom in our house growing up. Sunday mornings, with church at 10am, were particularly “exciting”.  It usually started with one of us yelling “so are you getting in the shower?” from our bed to said sister down the hall in her bed. The one with the...

Adventures in Applesauce

Adventures in Applesauce

  Somewhere, deep inside, I’m a little bit of a prepper. Or at least a wannabe prepper. Not the weapon-hoarding kind (yikes!)….the living-off-the-land-and-being-able-to-survive-the-winter kind. How did the pioneer women of early America do it? I’ve been wanting to get better at preserving fresh food so this...

Earth Friendly School Supplies: A Shopping Guide

Okay folks, summer is not quite over but whether we like it or not, it is time to gear up for a brand new school year! I try to use my dollars in a responsible and eco-conscious way but it does take a little bit of effort to find products that are earth (and budget!) friendly. Here are a few of my top picks….luckily “being green”...

Acquarella…natural nail polish, that works!

Acquarella…natural nail polish, that works!

I really think feet are pretty disgusting.  They’re not cute or sexy and should never be examined up-close unless you have a medical problem or something. But, even though I think feet are gross, I respect them, I think they should be taken care of and perhaps even decorated a little bit….with nail polish. When my pursuit for more...

DIY Dishwasher Detergent

Since I’m still loving my DIY laundry detergent, I started looking into dishwasher soap a few months back.  I love this recipe from 4 Pears!  It’s simple, natural, and cost efficient.  And I love that I “made it myself”. To make your own, you will need: Borax Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda  (must be washing soda,...

Weekend Project {Raised Bed Garden}

The backyard garden teaches a lot of life lessons to kids and can be a great way to instill responsibility, ownership, and healthy eating habits.  I was a girl that grew up with a big backyard garden every summer.  Although I never enjoyed my turn to weed, I always loved picking ripe, cherry tomatoes right off the vine and hunting for beans an...

Everyday Cloth Napkins

Each new year I participate in the ritual of making resolutions.  By February I have all but forgotten them.  Perhaps my resolutions are not specific enough – exercise more and eat healthy are as general as they come.  This year I was determined to do better – I made a resolution to set tangible resolutions!  One resolution was to reduce the...

DIY All-Purpose Cleaner

So we’re nesting this month, right?  Hunkering down in our cozy homes with our loved ones nestled around us….  And I don’t know about you, but this is when I begin to notice areas of my house that aren’t so…well, maintained.  One of my favorite household cleaners was given to me by my cousin, Betsey.  I use it almost daily in our...

Houseplants {black thumb friendly!} for a healthy, beautiful home

I do not come from a family of gardeners, but I always had dreams of a tangled English garden gracing my front stoop or perhaps a collection of intricately manicured bonsai trees in my living room window (this may or may not have been inspired by Mr. Miyagi from Karate Kid). While my horticultural talents are still quite modest, I have discovered...
