Essential Oils: Taking the Plunge

So, one of common elements I saw when reading on switching to more natural living was the use of essential oils. It can be a little daunting at first but once you get used to it you’ll feel so much better about the health of your home. After doing some research on the quality and price…

Bath Bombs

As a busy mother and wife it can be hard to make time for yourself. It’s also hard to spend money on ourselves because we can think of a million other things that money could be going towards. For me, I am never satisfied with nail salon pedicures. The water is never hot enough, I…

Baby Lotion

I have not been comfortable using anything other that plain old coconut oil on Charley and that is all she has ever needed so far. Once she is a little older I will add in some coco butter or shea butter and an appropriate amount of child safe essential oils. (Not all essential oils are safe…

Lotion

I keep this lovely stuff stored in a regular ole mason jar. Normally with products that contain essential oils you want to use a dark glass container to preserve their effects. This lotion gets used so quickly and its stored in a dark cubbie, so I don’t worry about it not being in dark glass….

Simple Moisture Lip Balm

I did my own take on this Pinterest Recipe I found. 2 Teaspoons Beeswax Pellets 1.5 Teaspoons Coconut Oil 2 Teaspoons Coco Butter (Smells so good you’ll want to eat it!) 1 Teaspoon Shea Butter (great quality, great cause!) 4 Teaspoons Jojoba Oil You simply combine all of these ingredients in a double boiler. I use a glass…

Baby Wash

SHAKE WELL and that’s it! WARNING: This…

Addictive Cosmetics

I have an addiction to another Etsy Shop! This time its Addictive Cosmetics. She makes high quality natural products. I have tried multiple eye shadows and lipsticks. Best eye shadow so far is CookiePuss. Her lip junkies (aka lip glosses) are thick and moisturizing. The lipsticks are highly pigmented. Great stuff! So far my favorite…

Best Deodorant Ever

I love this woman’s Etsy shop! She makes the best deodorant ever! I have tried a few other natural deodorants that I did not like. This works perfectly for me on a daily basis. This will leave MASSIVE white marks if you are not careful. But, that doesn’t compare to the peace of mind I…
