I love essential oils and the many amazing uses that there are for them!  I still consider myself a beginner, as I’m constantly discovering new essential oil recipes to use with them, and new products to create.  It’s been a very fun journey.       Affiliate links to products I personally use and recommend support this blog.  Thanks!     I recently tried a new brand of essential oils called Simply Earth.  These are 100% pure essential oil, and […]

I don’t own a gym membership, and I doubt I ever will.  I feel like there is no need to spend the money when I can work out at home.  I do understand, however, the pull to go to a gym where there is nice equipment, a “workout” atmosphere, and like-minded people around you.  That is one reason why I still like to have workout equipment to keep at home.  It’s nice to have a variety, but at home there isn’t […]

Y’all know how I love my essential oils and natural living products. I’m a big believer in saving money, but I’m also a big believer in getting quality products.  Buying a cheap essential oil isn’t going to be worth the money that buying pharmaceutical-grade is, in some cases.  I try to buy high quality essential oils from trusted resources.  If I’m going to spend money, I want to know it’s going toward something worth the money!!   That being said, […]

Buying Locally Grown Honey 6 comments
A few Christmases ago, I had an interesting conversation with my mother in law.  She asked my thoughts on the “whole honey from China thing”.   I confess, I had absolutely no clue what she was talking about.  I know that I do my buying honey local, but I hadn’t heard anything regarding China.     She went on to explain to me some things that she had read and seen on the news, and showed surprise that someone like me, who […]

Okay, so I know this isn’t exactly the most enjoyable topic, but it’s all-too-real.  Get natural relief for gas pain, using a simple yoga pose.     According to the Mayo clinic, the average person passes intestinal gas anywhere from 10-20 times per day.  I’ve read that it adds up to almost 4 pints of air!  Of course, when we have an abundance of gas stuck in our intestines, it can cause intense stomach pain.   Some of the causes […]

This is one of my favorite guest posts…Mandi is crazy beautiful and funny, and I’m grateful she was willing to do a guest post for me.  I just had to share it again…       *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Don’t get me wrong, I would love to hit the gym– use all the equipment? Swim occasionally? Take a class, perhaps? But it’s not my time and my season with little kids around. And I know, I know, they can go to the […]
